The Power Of Spoken Words (And How To Harness It)

Words are seen in English language as the smallest unit of language which has a particular meaning and can be expressed by itself.

It is the smallest, discrete, meaningful unit of language. Basically, words have been used as a means of communication and interaction.

In our everyday life, we use words to communicate our thoughts, opinions and ideas and for interacting with others.

Unfortunately, the basic use of words have made us treat with gross negligence the power of words and how the adversely affect our lives.

We never pay attention to the fact that words bear with them a spiritual dimension and implication because we have preoccupied our minds with the physical dimension of words only.

According to HuffPost, words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. They are not mere vocabulary uttered to express ourselves as we think them to be. They come with serious spiritual implications which I would be sharing shortly.

It will interest you to know that Satan knows how powerful words are and unlike you, he never underestimates the power of words.

He knows that by making you lose control of your tongue, he can assume control over your life. If he can get you to be careless with words, he can lay hold and claim on your future hence you must be extremely careful with your words.

The following scriptures would open your eyes to the power of words and the importance of not using them carelessly;

“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.” — Psalms 19:14 (KJV)

“Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.” — Psalms 141:3 (KJV)

“Where there is much talk there will be no end to sin, but he who keeps his mouth shut does wisely.” — Proverbs 10:19 (BBE)

“Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.” — Proverbs 16:24 (KJV)

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” — Proverbs 18:21 (KJV)

“He who keeps watch over his mouth and his tongue keeps his soul from troubles.” — Proverbs 21:23 (BBE)

"I tell you that every idle word that men speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.
For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” — Matthew 12:36-37 (WEB)

“Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.” — Matthew 15:11 (KJV)

"Even so the tongue is a small part of the body, but it takes credit for great things. How much wood may be lighted by a very little fire!
And the tongue is a fire; it is the power of evil placed in our bodies, making all the body unclean, putting the wheel of life on fire, and getting its fire from hell." — James 3:5-6 (BBE)

“For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:” — 1 Peter 3:10 (KJV)

Without further ado, let me show you two powerful spiritual implications of words

1. Words are for Creation

Over and above the basic use of words (communication and interaction), words are used for bringing about possibilities.

They are spiritual tools for the enterprise of creation as we see in Genesis chapter one. God used words to create the world. He had a mental picture of what He wanted the world to look like but He had to utter words to create His mental image.

"And God said..." – Genesis 1:3

Until God spoke, the earth remained in its void and formless state. The whole world came to be by a function of spoken words.

Like God, use words to create the things you want to see. With spoken words you can call forth the things you want to see in your life that you have not begun to see. You can create the kind of life and future you want using words.

Stop talking about your situation. Say only the things you want your situation to look like not what it is looking like.

Let your confessions be positive so you create positivity around your life. Making confessions such as "I am finished", "I am dead", "Life is hard", "I can't" e.t.c would only create negative possibilities around you.

Instead of saying it as it is, say it as you want it to be. Speak the possibilities you want to see in your life.

Always remember this: Say what you want to see not what you are seeing.

2. Words Are Conveyors Of Spiritual Realities

“And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me.” — Ezekiel 2:2 (KJV)

I consider this the most powerful dimension of words; the conveying of spiritual realities. Anytime words are spoken, spirits and the realities domiciled in the spirits are transmitted.

As God was speaking to Prophet Ezekiel in Ezekiel 2:2, the prophet records that the Spirit of the Lord entered into him and the reality of his ministry was transmitted into his life.

The words God spoke to Ezekiel in Ezekiel chapter two were not for communication or information. They were the medium with which God transferred His Spirit into Ezekiel and commissioned him.

When a man mounts the pulpit, it will interest you to know that as he speaks the spirit which supports his speech is transferred into his listeners.

How do you explain how words as simple as "You're healed", "Fire all over your body", "Rise Up and walk" carry great spiritual power?

In Acts 3, Peter and John demonstrated how spoken words can transfer spiritual realities from the speaker to the hearer.

In verse 6 of Acts 3, Peter said "Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have I give thee: in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk".

The words were not so powerful in themselves but because of the Spirit backing the spoken words, a reality of Divine healing was conveyed and the man began to walk.

Let me tell you a story that further buttresses the power of spoken words.

The great Apostle J.A Babalola of blessed memories was about to break his fast on one occasion. So he requested his daughter to prepare tea for him.

The little girl was sluggish in carrying out the biddings of the great man of God. Angrily, he shouted at her saying "Why are you behaving like a mad person?".

At that spot, the little girl became insane. He had to cast out the spirit of insanity from her before she became normal and sane again.

His words transferred a spiritual reality into his daughter.
You must never use words carelessly dear reader.

It is due to this powerful implications of words that the devil is concerned about making you lose control of your tongue.

When he gets you to begin to utter negative words, you energize him and his demons to act on your words and bring the reality of the negative things you uttered.

You must discipline yourself never to let out words which gives room for the devil to operate. Speak words that allows the Spirit of God to find expression in your life.

Your words can create and destroy.
Your words can transmit spiritual realities.

Five Channels For Preservation and Protection

"And we know that we are of God and the WHOLE WORLD LIETH IN WILDERNESS" – 1 John 5:19 (Emphasis Mine)

The world has been characterized by wickedness, ills, and evils. We live in a world that is full of wickedness and evil.

Everyday, newer dimensions of wickedness are unveiled and the tendency to remain safe and secured grows slimmer.

Surviving in the world is no longer possible by ordinary human strategies and system. If anyone must survive he/she must engage survival mysteries.

Men can only wade through the wickedness of this world on the strength of the preservative mysteries they know.

Being a Christian is not enough to procure your preservation from the wickedness of this world. You must know and work by certain principles which grants protection and preservation.

In this article, I am going to show you five scriptural channels wherewith we can enjoy preservation and protection in this wicked world.

I want you to know that Satan and his host of demons only take the life of a person when that person permits it.

Not choosing is a choice also. You must decide today that over your life and the lives of your family members no devil will perpetrate evil.

Without further ado let's look at these channels of preservation.

1. The Channel of His Presence

The presence of God is the foremost preservation and protection channel you can engage.

Scattered throughout the book of Psalms 91 are benefits for anyone for dwells in the secret place of our God.

When a man makes God's presence his habitat, God is mandated to keep evil and plague from him.

Psalms 91:9-10 says "because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling."

Any one who dwells in the presence of God enjoys protection from the terror by day, the arrows by night, the pestilence that walks in darkness and the destruction that wastes men (Psalm 91:5-6).

It doesn't matter how many gang up to take your life, if you are a dweller in the secret place a thousand shall fall at thy side, ten thousand at your right side.

Not only would a man who dwells in His presence enjoy preservation and protection, he would receive answers to his prayers speedily (Psalms 91:15).

A man who values God's presence values his own life. Valuers of God's presence enjoy long life, satisfaction and the salvation of the Lord. What more would you need to survive in this wicked world?

ACTION POINT: Always spend quality time in the presence of God. Do not trivialize the secret place of prayer. Dwell there daily and watch God's protective power at work in your life.

2. The Channel of The Blood

"And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt."
– Exodus 12:7,13

A time came in Egypt when God wanted to destroy all the firstborn sons of both men and animal.

The Bible records that God instructed the children of Israel to kill an animal and sprinkle the blood on their door posts and lentils. The blood sprinkling was to serve as a mark of exemption, exempting the Israelites from the killing of the first born sons.

At night, the angel of death passed through the entire land of Egypt killing every firstborn son of both man and animal. Only the houses which had blood sprinkled on their door posts were spared.

Death could not harm the Israelites because their door posts have the mark of the blood.

It will interest you to know that if there was any Israelite who refused to sprinkle the blood, he or she would have not been spared by death.

And supposing an Egyptian sprinkled blood on his or her door posts, death would have passed over him or her.

Blood is a uniquely important channel of protection and preservation.

In the new covenant, we do not need to kill animals and sprinkle their bloods to be preserved because the blood of the only begotten of God has come in the place of the blood of animals.

Hebrews 12:24 says "And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel."

In the place of the blood of bulls and goats, we have a more potent blood and that is the blood of Jesus Christ.

If the blood of animals could preserve the Israelites from the angel of death how much more the precious blood of Jesus.

The blood of Jesus stands as the only atonement for our sins and the currency with which our freedom from the yoke and bondage of sin was procured.

ACTION POINT: This channel of preservation only works for those who have accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior. Accept Him today to be preserved by His blood.

3. The Channel of the Anointing

Another channel of preservation is the Anointing of the Spirit. To the man whom God anoints, there is a provision for protection and preservation.

See what Psalms 105:14-15 says;

He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes;

Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

The anointing of the Spirit in a man's life is potent enough to preserve him. Truly anointed men do not die as casualties. They do not die like chickens.

You can not carry the anointing of the Spirit and end up any how. You can not be anointed and oppressed by the devil. The devil mesmerizes people who are not anointed.

If there is anything you must seek for with all your heart, it should be the anointing of the Spirit. The anointing is the principal capital of a believer's life.

ACTION POINT: Desire and pray earnestly for the anointing of the Spirit.

4. The Channel of Fire.

"For I, saith the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her." – Zechariah 2:5

Fire is yet another channel of protection and preservation.

There is nothing that resist fire. No being: spirit or human that can withstand the fiery nature of fire.

In the anchor text above, an angel told Zechariah that God said He would be a wall of fire around Jerusalem.

In other words, after Jerusalem's brick fence, God was going to become a fence of fire. Imagine being surrounded by a wall of fire, what power can harm you?

As I wrote down this point, I was inspired thus;

God led the Israelites by a pillar of fire at night when they left Egypt for the Promised Land. The pillar of fire was not only for direction and illumination. It was also for protection and preservation.

Who would want to dare a nation led by a pillar of fire?
Who would think of robbing or stealing from them after seeing that supernatural act?

For somebody reading this, I see God becoming a fence of fire around you and all that concerns you.

While there is a provision for external fire, it is important to let you know that there is a provision for internal fire.

As God is a wall of fire around us, we can also carry fire on our inside. The kind of fire like that of the burning bush in Exodus 3:2 which was burning but not consuming the bush.

You can be burning and the fire doesn't consume you. You can carry fire which does not harm you but harms anyone who tries to tamper with you. This kind of fire is very possible.

“John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:” — Luke 3:16

Notice there are two baptisms. One is the baptism of the holy ghost while the other is the baptism of fire. You would not carry fire on your inside until you are baptized with fire.

My dear reader, you can be so full of fire that when demons see you they flee. You can walk on earth with boldness, temerity and confidence when you are firerized.

ACTION POINT: Seek for the baptism of fire. Do not stop at the baptism of the Holy ghost.

5. The Channel of His Name

"The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it and is safe." – Proverbs 18:10

We often end our prayers by saying "In Jesus name" but we do not understand the full scope of that proclamation. We have reduced "In Jesus name" to a prayer conjunction and a conclusion when we pray.

Let us do a little English study.

If I told you "I am in my house" what do I mean?

I am actually at a location and that is my house right? Yes.

In Jesus name is not just a phrase but a location. Our prayers are supposed to be offered from this location for them to produce the results we desire.

The name of the Lord according to Proverbs is a strong tower where the righteous man can come into and be safe.

In 2020, you would need to run into His name if you want to be preserved. His name provides sufficient protection against the evils of this present day.

Get into the name of Jesus today by staying in His presence. Never you trivialize the secret place. It is quintessential for your preservation.

You would not want to keep this to yourself, would you?

Certainly Not!

Four Golden Principles For Praying Effectively

The life of a believer is supposed to be hinged on prayers. Every and anyone who intends to be serious with God, be used of God, and to walk with God must see prayers as an indispensable tool.

We deal with an immortal and access to Him is by the enterprise of prayer. Our lives are sustained by our continued contact with Him and so we must embrace prayer not as a religious rite but as a necessity for survival.

The importance of prayer can never be overemphasized. It is a major pivot for a true walk with God. Every intention to walk with God is possible by effective prayers.

Prayer like every other art has principles which must be known, practiced and mastered for results to be produced. Your prayers become more and more effective when you apply the principles that govern the effectiveness of prayers.

To master the art of prayer and pray effectively, there are certain principles you must be acquainted with. These principles would teach you how to pray effectively.

You must understand that in this kingdom there are no shortcuts. Everything has a price and that price must be paid completely before delivery is possible.

Getting results from your prayers is a function of obeying prayer principles and applying the secrets on how to pray effectively. To falter in this process is to be unsuccessful in your prayer enterprise.

Today, I would be sharing four principles which when adhered to would move you from the realm of unproductivity in prayers to the realm where your prayers come with potency even the devil would be scared when he sees or hears you pray.

Here are the principles for praying effectively.

Principle #1: The Sinner's Prayer Will Not Be Answered by God.

...The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.– James 5:16 (Paraphrased)

God is holy and He expects everyone that wants to interact with Him or have any form of dealing with Him to be Holy. He can NEVER condone nor give allowance for unholiness.

His nature does not permit Him. To be a sinner and expect God to answer your prayers is as impossible as saying a hen died on the cross to save mankind. God would not offer as much as a listening ear to a sinner let alone answer one.

Now we know that God HEARETH NOT SINNERS: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. – John 9:31 (Emphasis Mine).

God's nature does not permit Him to respond to the prayers of a sinner hence if you would get results from your prayer engagement, you must live a holy life.

Answers to prayers does not come from angels or pastors or Mary the mother of Jesus, they come from God. The only premise on which God can respond to your prayers is on the premise of holiness.

See what 1 Peter 3:12 says;

For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

Your prayer enterprise would be greeted with dryness, silence and zero impact as long as you remain in sin. The eyes and ears of God are over and opened to the prayers of the righteous man.

God has no regard for the prayer of a sinner. As a matter of fact, God considers the prayers and sacrifices of a sinner as an abomination (Proverbs 21:27;15:8) but He delights in the prayers of the righteous.

The Amplified rendition of James 5:16 says that the prayers of the righteous is "dynamic in its working". You can not be a sinner and expect to be successful at praying and receiving responses from God.

ACTION POINT: Resolve to live a holy life from today, shutting the door of your life to the devil and letting Jesus tabernacle in you. To find out how to live a holy life, get in touch with me via the contact us page. Click HERE to do so.

Principle #2: See God as Your Father When You Pray

This principle is of extreme importance. It is as important as prayer itself.

When Jesus' disciples came to Him requesting to be taught how to prosecute the art of prayer, Jesus began teaching them in Matthew 6:9 saying;

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

When many believers pray, they pray like hopeless individuals. They pray like people who are been victimized without salvation. One of the causes of this orientation can be attributed to the ignorance of God as Father.

If the revelation that the God you're praying to is not just a highly-exalted being who sits in on a wider throne in heaven but your father you would begin to procure results from your prayer enterprise.

Jesus, while He was on Earth, tried to institutionalize this doctrine because success out of every prayer enterprise is predicated on it. He referred to God as 'Heavenly Father' whenever He wanted to pray and we see the tremendous results of His prayers.

Here is why it is important to see God as your father while you pray.

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
– Matthew 7:11-12

What Jesus was trying to explain here is that when we compare our earthly father's style of fatherhood to God's, our earthly fathers are evil.

Do you understand that?

That if there is a scale called "fatherhood" and we place God on one side and our earthly father on the other side, our earthly fathers are seen as evil.

This means that the model of fatherhood, as good as it seems, can not be compared to God's own model. To God's standard, our 'good' fathers are evil.

Now Jesus explains that in their 'evil' state they do their best to give us all we need. How much more our Heavenly Father who is truly good? If your 'evil' earthly father won't give you a scorpion when you ask for bread, what
'good' Heavenly Father?

What ever possibility you enjoy from your earthly father, you get much more from your Heavenly Father. Your earthly father will not always supply your needs because he is tapping from an earthly source but your Heavenly Father has the ability to supply your needs without constraint.

I want this to sink into your spirit, soul and body. The God you are praying to is not a tyrant. He is your father one that is better than your earthly father. And He has every resource at His disposal to meet your needs.

Principle #3: A Spirit is Involved

Every function and activity in life is sponsored, orchestrated and governed by a spirit. There is nothing that takes place in and on the earth that can not be linked to a spirit.

Prayer like every other known act can only be orchestrated via the help of the spirit of God. Without the aid of God's Spirit, prayer would be a toilsome labour devoid of dividends.

In order to pray effectively, you must submit and readily yield to the Holy spirit.

Your desire to prosecute prayers is not enough. Being full of energy such that you can scream at the top of your voice for hours does not guarantee success in prayer enterprise.

...not by might nor by power, BUT BY MY SPIRIT, says the LORD Almighty. – Zech 4:6 (Emphasis Mine)

It is not given to your humanity to be prayerful. You have so much frailties as a human which can not afford you the wherewithal to pray effectively hence the need to solely depend on the spirit to both lead and guide you.

In Romans 8:26, Apostle Paul shoes us that we are full of infirmities not knowing what to pray for and how we should pray. But the Spirit of God assists us by both praying for us and helping us pray.

David realized that he could not pray except he was assisted by a spirit and so he cried out in Psalms 80:18 saying So will not we go back from thee: quicken us and we will call upon your name.

Nobody can achieve success in prayers without the assistance of the Spirit of God. The power in prayer is only harnessed and realized by the Spirit of God.

You can go on and on trying to do prayers with your strength and initiative, I assure you that soon you would weary out. Prayers sees success when a spirit becomes involved.

Get God's Spirit involved in the prosecution of prayers if you want to see effectiveness.

Persistence Brings Response

Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. – Luke 18:5

In Luke 18, Jesus was trying to teach on prayer and he told the story of a widow who sought justice.

The woman went to a wicked judge in her bid to get justice. And according to Jesus' story, the judge did not respect persons nor God and there was no way he was ready to give the widow justice.

A time came when the judge got tired and weary because the woman kept coming to him demanding justice. Due to the weariness, he obliged to give her justice.

Jesus related the action of the unjust judge to our heavenly Father. Despite the judge's wickedness, the woman's persistence provoked him to give her justice.

If the unjust judge could grant the widow's desire out of her persistence, why would God who is loving and just not respond to us when we call on Him with persistence.

In Luke 18:8, Jesus shows us something important when we pray.

I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? – Luke 18:8

God would respond to our prayers if only we can engage Him with persistence. We must be unrelenting, unflinching, and persistent in prayers.

Prayer must not be a part-time venture. It is an accumulation of several engagements. Power and success in prayer is by persistence.

Conclusively, these principles would set you on the right plain for praying effectively. They would position you to trap responses from God and give you an advantage at attaining success whenever we carry out prayer engagement.

Do not take these principles for granted. Abide and follow all and watch your prayer life transform.

  1. A sinner's prayer will not be answered
  2. See God as Father
  3. A Spirit is involved
  4. Persistence brings Response

You would not want to keep this to yourself, would you?

Certainly Not!

Gospelcaster New Year Message: 7 Failproof Steps For a Prosperous 2020

The fastidious desire of Satan to keep you from seeing the year 2020 has been apprehended and thwarted. The Sovereign God, the Lord, the great Monarch of Zion has by His mercies, grace and sovereignty brought you into the new year.

Truly, thus far has the Lord helped us. He has proven Himself mighty in all ramifications of life entrenching Himself as our shield, our keeper, and our Ebenezer. Glory, Hallelujah!

Special season greetings to you my esteemed reader. Without you, Gospelcaster would be nothing but an unprofitable idea. You have made it possible for Gospelcaster to have a success story and it is worth celebrating you for.

This year 2020, God willing, I would be rolling out more revelatory and divinely-inspired articles. The book store section of this blog would be stocked with various books from different authors on topics ranging from leadership to kingdom finance to prayer to the ministry of the Holy Spirit and much more.

2020 is a strategic year and it is my vision to continue to postulate sound doctrine even as we gradually go back to the original template of true Christianity. As you stayed tuned to Gospelcaster in 2019, I plead with you not to draw back in 2020. If you have not subscribed to this blog please do so NOW.

The year is just beginning and it is quintessential that we lay the right foundation for the year in order to ensure a prosperous year. Without adequate measures, this year would be no different from other years.

If we approach 2020 the same way we approached 2019, 2020 would be no different from last year. It is impossible to get a different result from the same process.

To avoid the recurring plague and peril of unfavourable years you must revolt against the old trend and quadruple the intensity of your approach.

What I am about to share with you is a list of foolproof, no-fail and authentic foundational blocks to give you a blissful 2020. The ideas I will be sharing in a short while will radically give you the 2020 you desire.

These ideas are scripturally backed-up, failproof, and success-guaranteed ideas. Let's delve into this feast of ideas that would shape our 2020.

1. Cultivate the Habit of Dwelling in the Secret Place.

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. – Psalms 91:1

In 2020, make dwelling in the secret place your habit. Dwelling in the secret place of prayer with God is truly powerful. Nothing is as important, necessary and vital as it is. Nothing carries so much benefit as it does.

The world is designed in a way that chunks up every available time we have to invest in the secret place of prayer. Our academic pursuit, careers, trying to make ends meet, and even our "religious" activities squeezes out the time and energy for the secret place of prayer.

The secret place is your point of privately meeting with God. It is a place where you commune and have fellowship with a God whose ears are open to hear from you.

It is a place where He lets us in on His plans and direction for our lives and gives us the modus operandi for going about it. It is the most important place to be in; not your church auditorium nor your classroom nor your workplace.

No matter how busy your schedule is or would be in 2020, do not relegate the secret place of prayer. Do not be so busy that you fail to engage in kingdom business by staying in the secret place.

This year, I ask that you firmly resolve to be a dweller of the secret place, cultivate the habit of dwelling there and watch lines fall into pleasant places for you.

2. Violently Command the Year.

This life will never give you what you desire. Never! The only time you can get what you desire in life is when you demand for it. What you do not demand from life will NEVER come to you.

Your desire alone will not give you the 2020 you want to have. You must demand for what you want to see in 2020. Demanders not desirers get what they want.

In Job 38:18, God was asking Job a question. He said;

Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;

I came to understand from the scripture verse above that times and seasons can be commanded. You can command the year to produce exactly what you want to see. If you do not command it, the devil would give you what he wants to see.

Command is a weighty word. It is stronger than asking. It is an order backed up by a sense of authority and right. On the account of Jesus' death, it is our right to demand the good out of life but Satan would not let that happen hence the need to exercise our authority in Christ by commanding the things we want to see.

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. – Matthew 11:12

If you have approached other years with gentility, this year you must change that tactic. Only those violent enough to command the year would get the desires of their heart.

The only means to get anything is to take it by force because life is not ready to give it to you. To this end, being gentle is unprofitable. Command the year! Make it work and produce for you.

How do you command the year?

You do not command the year by making claims and boasting here and there. To make a statement and issue a command in the spirit you must pray in the spirit.

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Engage in violent and brutally-aggresive prayers to command the year 2020. Do not be weary. Pray ceaselessly.

3. Harness the power of God's Word.

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. – Hebrews 4:12

And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. – Acts 20:32

The word of God is powerful. It is infallible. You can never go wrong when you are standing on God's word.

Like Apostle Paul in Acts 20:32, I commend you to God's word which is able to make your 2020 prosperous.

When Joshua took over the leadership of the children of Israel after Moses died, God began to speak to Joshua concerning his new role in Joshua chapter one. In verse 8 of Joshua chapter one, God gave an amazing strategy for enjoying prosperity.

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

This strategy is summed up in studying, meditating on and obeying the word of God.

This year devote your time to the reading and studying of the word of God. Endeavour to look upon scriptures every single day of 2020.

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. – 2 Timothy 2:15

Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. – 1 Timothy 4:13

Do not just study the word of God alone, you would need to meditate on it. The word of God becomes more potent when you move from casual study to intense meditation.

But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. – Psalms 1:2

Your life would be like a tree planted by the river side which brings forth fruits in season and out of season when you delight in studying and meditating on God's word.

Studying and meditating on God's word is not the end of the equation. The equation is made complete with obedience.

...that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. – Joshua 1:8 (Paraphrased)

Until you observe to do God's word, your ways can never be prosperous. It is at this point that many believers fail. We study the word, some of us meditate on it but only a few of us obey it.

The word of God was not written to entertain us but that we through obedience may receive of the benefits of the word.

And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee. – Exodus 15:26

But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. – James 1:22

Your prosperity in 2020 is tied to your "doing" of the word.
Is it easy? NO, it is painstakingly hard to do God's word but the end product of obeying His word is worth the pain.

4. Serve God Wholeheartedly

And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. – Exodus 23:25

Service to God is a key to open the door of prosperity over your life and stopping the hand of the devil from inflicting sicknesses on you.

Personally, I have derived mind-boggling benefits from serving God. It is not even a choice. It is a commandment whose obedience comes with a promise.

See Deuteronomy 11:13-14

And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the Lord your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,
That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.

God is not a wicked taskmaster. He is not a shrewd manager. He is a generous and benevolent master who prides Himself in rewarding in accordance to the measure of work done using a just measuring scale.

And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. – Revelation 22:12

Serving God is lucrative. It has a great recompense of reward. God would reward your service to Him this year 2020. Just serve Him.

5. Seek and Follow the Leading of the Holy Spirit

O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps. – Jeremiah 10:23

One of the greatest limitations we have as humans is our inability to know the future and discern the right steps to take.

This was the basis of Prophet Jeremiah's lamentation in Jeremiah 10:23. No man in his own self has the ability to effectively and accurately direct his steps.

Even when it seems like the step to be taken is the right one, Solomon comes with a warning that; There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. – Proverbs 14:12

In lieu of this, it is expedient that we subscribe to the leadership of a higher authority. And the only authorized personality we can subscribe to is the Holy Spirit. Only the Holy Spirit can truly guide you in the way that is right.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. – Proverbs 3:5-6

You may think that your understanding of how certain things in life works is enough to help you make the right decision but the writer of Proverbs cautions not to lean on your own understanding.

The only form of understanding you should rely on is the understanding from the Spirit of God because there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding. – Job 32:8

As much as you, seek the direction of God's Spirit before taking any decision in 2020. Seek His direction and wholly give yourself to His leadership.

2020 should not be a year where do you guesswork. Be sure of every move you want to make by consulting first the Spirit of God.

Jesus said;

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. – John 16:13

The Spirit of Truth who is the Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth. Not some truth but all truth. Whether it is in business, academics, family life and so on, with the guidance and leadership of the Spirit you can not go wrong.

And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. – Isaiah 30:21

Seek and Follow the leadership of the Spirit. Your success in 2020 is hinged on it.

6. Engage in Profitable Ventures

Whilst it is good to be very spiritual, spirituality is not what would put food on your table. In 2020, engage in profit generating ventures. Do things that would generate income.

See what the Goodnews Bible says about Ecclesiastes 11:2
Put your investments in several places--many places even-- because you never know what kind of badluck you are going to have in this world.

See the same verse from the NET Bible
Divide your merchandise among seven or even eight investments, for you do not know what calamity may happen on Earth.

Stop substituting work for prayers. Do not be overly spiritual and neglect work.

Even Apostle Paul condemned any form of negligence to work in 2 Thessalonians 3:10
For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

With all the spiritual activities Apostle Paul undertook he still worked to earn a living. Being spiritual does not mean you should be a liability. Spirituality is not an excuse for laziness. If you do not work then be ready to settle for mediocrity and less in 2020.

Discover high-quality, on-demand products you can sell. Market your skill and talent. Create products and services people desire and would patronize you for.

Don't expect prayer to do all the work. Use your hands. For whatsoever your hands find to do, do it with all your might.(Ecclesiastes 9:10)

7. Be Diligent

The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute. – Proverbs 10:24
He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich. – Proverbs 10:4

To have the best year in 2020, you must be diligent. Diligence is a vital prerequisite for prosperity. No lazy person becomes prosperous.

Maintain a diligent approach not only to your business but to your walk with God. Be diligent in your pursuit of spiritual growth. Be diligent in your career. Be diligent in your academic pursuit. Be diligent in your relationship with people.

Never give room for laziness and slothfulness. Quit you like a man; be diligent.

Conclusively, you would need to trust God absolutely without wavering. Let your gaze never shift from Him this year 2020. Do not lose sight of the El-shaddai.

With Him you are assured of victory this year 2020. See you at the top!
Compliments of the season.

The Single Most-Deadly Factor Responsible For The Failure of Spiritual People

Have you took time to ask why spiritual people fail and almost never amount to anything in life?

Have you thought about those tongue-talking brothers whose fires were suddenly extinguished?

Have you not wondered why believers exhibit so much zeal for God and in no distant time quiet down?

Why would a man, zealous and burning for God suddenly go cold after falling into sin?

What or who is responsible for this setback of failure many believers encounter in their walk with God?

For a long time, I was scared of failing as a spiritual person. I was scared of ending up like many I have heard of and read about. I was scared of falling into sin because of the large number of persons who used my life as a basis to follow God. Failing meant the failure of others.

I knew I needed help so I don't end up like many spiritual persons who regardless of their spirituality fell into sin and short-circuited thier lives.

I took cognisance of the lives of spiritual men who failed both in scriptures and in our day and time and I discovered the single most deadly factor responsible for the failure of spiritual people.

This factor can be attributed to the failure of Samson (Judges 13-16).
Samson was a man anointed by God to deliver Israel from the hands of the Philistines (Judges 13:5). His was a major call and ordination from God backed up with the resting of the Spirit of God (Judges 14:6,19;15:14).

With all of the endowments that Samson had one would expect that he would be successful and die gloriously after judging Israel for many years but then we know his end was a fatal and premature one.

NOTE THIS: The anointing of the Spirit, your prayer fire, your ability to search scriptures, memorize them and produce rhema from them can not completely guarantee your success in this spiritual journey.

Being anointed and having the ability to undertake kingdom functions will not necessarily keep you from failing. You must deal with the tendencies of your flesh. The greatest battle to fight as a believer is the battle against the flesh.

For the flesh lusteth against the  Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and  these are contrary the one to the other: so  that ye cannot do the things that ye would. – Galatians 5:17

To be spiritual is good but if you do not fight and conquer the flesh you would fail. Many great and anointed men of God have failed because they never considered fighting their flesh.

We are often concerned about spiritual warfare that we neglect the primary warfare of our lives which is against our flesh.
It was Apostle Paul that said;
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that  by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. – 1 Corinthians 9:27

Like Apostle Paul, you must bring your body under subjection that is prevail over your flesh lest what you preached against becomes what you practice. You must conquer your flesh else you would fall into the same sin you spoke against. 

If you fail to gain mastery over your flesh, after rebuking a brother who fell into sexual immorality you will fall into same sin. Your flesh must be subject to you so that you don't move in the anointing on stage and become the devil's tool at work. You must fight and conquer the flesh.

I know of a man of God, a world-renowned writer, a New-york times best selling author, who wrote about how many great men of God failed. Sometime in November, 2019, I was told that he fell into the sin of adultery. 

He wrote about how others failed and still joined the bandwagon of failures because he never realized that the tendency to commit sexual sin was in him. It is interesting to note that many of us use our tongues and prowess in the word to cover the tendencies of our flesh. And then the devil is seated by a corner, smiling, waiting for the right time to strike you.

The sad thing about this is you may have these tendencies and never know. You may think because you are highly spiritual hence you can not fall for a promiscuous woman until the day the devil brings that opportunity your way. You will never know you can lie until an avenue opens up were lying seems to be the best option you can take.

The tendencies of the flesh not conquered has brought many spiritual men to their knees. That's why Apostle Paul said "I put under my body, and bring it into subjection"– 1 Corinthians 9:27 Paraphrased.

How can we defeat and escape the death-trap of the tendencies of the flesh?

To defeat the flesh and escape its death-trap, we must walk in the Spirit.

This I say then, Walk in the  Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the  flesh. – Galatians 5:16

Only on the account of a true walk with God's Spirit can we conquer the flesh. When you walk with God's Spirit, He supplies all the arsenal and ammunitions you need for defeating the flesh. To do this, we must;

#1. Trust God's Spirit to help us identify and take away fleshy tendencies.

O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in  himself: it is not in man that walketh to  direct his steps. – Jeremiah 10:23

Chances are that you may have these tendencies in you and you will never know. The way of man like Jeremiah said is not in himself. He lacks the ability to direct his steps hence it is expedient to trust God's Spirit to help you identify and take these tendencies away.

He does so through the faculty of your spirit man.

The spirit  of man is the candle of the Lord,  searching all the inward parts of the belly. – Proverbs 20:27

God's Spirit walks hand in hand with your spirit to fish out the tendencies of the flesh in you. Your spirit is His candle with which He searches to reveal the tendencies in your heart.

You know when light come it has an effect on darkness. Light reveals everything that has been lurking in darkness but before this will happen, we must pray like David in Psalms 139:23-24

Search me, O God, and know my heart:  try me, and know my thoughts:

And see  if there be any wicked way in me, and lead  me in the way everlasting.

Ask God to conduct a search of your heart to see if there are tendencies in you. Go before God in all sincerity, brokenness and contrition.

ACTION POINT: Pray using Psalms 139:23, asking God to reveal the tendencies of your flesh and purge you from them. Make this prayer a daily prayer. 

#2. Fight your tendencies by praying in the spirit.

After discovering or identifying your tendencies, you must begin to trash them out. Our battles as believers is prosecuted mainly by prayer. The battle against the flesh is not exempted.

Use the tool of praying in the spirit as Jude admonishes;

"You build yourself up, founded on your most holy faith, making progress, rising like an edifice higher and higher until you've gone beyond the flesh, praying in the holy spirit." – Jude 1:20 AMP (Paraphrased)

Pray in the spirit like your depends on it because the more strengthened your spirit man is the less powerful your flesh becomes.

#3. Fast the Flesh.

One of the major ways to keep the flesh under and bring it into subjection is by fasting. Fasting is starving the flesh off everything and anything that makes it comfortable. From food to pleasure to sleep to Television and so on.

Fast the flesh to weaken it. When the flesh is not given that which it desires it grows weak. The effect of this process on the spirit man is more strength. As the flesh gets weaker and weaker through constant denial of pleasure, comfort and satisfaction, your spirit man begins to find expression more and more.

Fasting will not kill you. It is not going to go down well with your body. Your body will definitely want to resist but the goal is actually to make it weak so that it cannot carryout the things it desires.

When you're weak you would be incapacitated to do the things you normally do. In like manner, when you fast the flesh, it becomes weak making it difficult for the flesh to carry out its lust.

At least twice every week fast in this light; to take the flesh.

Jesus is coming to rapture a pure church. He is not coming for a church that allowed the tendencies of thier flesh sway them off the path of holiness.

You can escape this ravishing factor for the believers failure and live a pure, holy and spiritual life.

Victory Over The Bondage And Yoke of Sin in Your Christian Life

Sin has remained the devil's foremost strategy for capping the potential of believers. It has been the major setback of believers through out the various dispensation of time. The bondage it beings with itself accounts for the inability of many Christians to come into the fullness of the God-life and enjoy the immense benefits of serving God.

Severally, I have heard of tongue-talking believers who have battled with sin and lost woefully and then they begin to coin doctrines and teachings out of their experiences. These teachings and doctrines claim that it is impossible to live a holy life. They begin to teach that it is rare for a Christian to live without sinning.

Inasmuch as there are tendencies of faltering and falling at one point, a believer is never a sinner. Yes, the righteous may fall seven times but he is not a sinner. No true believer would be comfortable with sin. Do not permit any one to deceive you into believing that it is not possible to live holy. It is very possible and quintessential to live a holy life because "...without holiness, no man shall see the Lord" – Heb 12:14 (Paraphrased)

To join in the euphoria of heaven you must live a holy life. No sinner would make it to heaven. Only holy people would come into the courts of heaven.

But in all of these, it would be grossly unfair of me not to affirm the possiblity of a believer being under the bondage of sin. Whilst we preach and emphasize holiness, we should also be kind enough to look with love in the direction of those who have struggled to come out of sin yet despite their strong-willed decisions and desires backed up with determination they readily fall back to sin.

Have you been struggling with sin? Have you tried to escape the yoke of sin but to no avail?
Then this article was specially written for you. 

If all you do is the opposite of what believers should do then I congratulate you because you are reading the solution to your dilenma.

NOTE THIS: It is very possible to live a life that is free from sin. Christ has procured and secured your victory over sin.

In Apostle Paul's epistle to Romans, he spoke about not doing the things he ought to do and doing the things he hated (Romans 7:14). His desire to live a holy life was not enough to make him do so. He struggled to do what he should do but ended up doing the things he shouldn't do.

I am sure this feeling is mutual. You always make up your mind never to indulge in a particular sin but before long you find yourself in the performance of it. Anytime you make a decision not to sin, it seems as if an influence comes upon you, overpowers you and then you readily fall back to sin.

Apostle Paul reveals what goes wrong. He shows us why we fall into sin despite our firm decisions not to in Romans 7:17-20

17  Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin  that dwelleth in me.

18 For I know that in  me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good  thing: for to will is present with me; but  how to perform that which is good I find  not.

19 For the good that I would I do not:  but the evil which I would not, that I do.

20  Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I  that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

You see that you fall into sin easily because the nature of sin dwells in you. But there's goodnews for you. There's a way out. Deliverance from the nature of sin is possible. You can be free from the bondage, yoke and snare of sin. You can maintain your decision to live a holy life free from sin.

In Roman chapter 8 verses 1 and 2, Apostle Paul shows us the way out;

1 There is therefore now no  condemnation to them which are in Christ  Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but  after the Spirit.

2 For the law of the Spirit of  life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from  the law of sin and death.

The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus is the way out. It is potent enough to deliver you from the law and nature of sin which is responsible for your continual falling into sin. By virtue of the death of Jesus, sin has been condemned and conquered and the righteousness of the law has been fulfilled in us.

The fulfilment of the righteousness in us finds expression when we walk not in the flesh but in the spirit. To be truly free from the bondage of sin, you must walk in the spirit.

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. – Galatians 5:16

The flesh sponsors sin. You are battling with sin because you have not begun to walk in the spirit.

For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. – Romans 8:5

People whose minds are focused on spiritual things have no time to dabble into sin. We can not live a life that is free from sin by merely confessing strength and having desires backed up with fierce determination. The surest exit from the captivity of sin is to live by the Spirit, walking daily in His precepts.

See what Romans 8:10-11 and 13 says;

10  And if Christ be in you, the body  is dead  because of sin; but the Spirit is life  because of righteousness.

11 But if the  Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the  dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ  from the dead shall also quicken your  mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in  you.

12 Therefore, brethren, we are  debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the  flesh.

I know your pastor may have explained Romans 8:11 in the light of raising the dead and healing the sick but it is only a part of what that scripture implies. If truly the Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, He will quicken you to lose the ability to sin because the Spirit of God is pure and holy and He would not want to be tabernacled in an unclean place.

Instead of determining not to sin, determine to walk in the Spirit so you do not gratify the desires of sin.

But ye, beloved, building up yourselves  on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy  Ghost – Jude 1:20

Spend time communing and fellowshipping with God's Spirit and you would gradually begin to lose the affinity to sin. The Spirit is the way out. His quickening is what guarantees your freedom from the bondage of sin.
