Whomever might be in any bondage whether known to them or not, will receive their deliverance if they call on the name of Jesus in faith and ask for deliverance as they turn a new leaf and dedicate their lives to Christ.
The magnitude of the problem does not matter, neither does the level of sophistication of the enemies’ armoury. Whatever rank the adversary might occupy in the realm of darkness, the power in the name of Jesus is more than enough to obliterate them!
God is supreme and he has given Jesus a name above every other name, as seen here in Philippians 2:9(NLT): ‘Therefore God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names,”
Whatever name might have been lifted up in the stance of your affliction must submit to the power in the name of Jesus once you call upon him. When a superior officer gives a command to a subordinate, the latter has no choice but obey. Philippians 2:10-11(NLT) says: ‘ that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the father.’ The principalities have no choice, they must bow! As long as you fear God and obey his commandments, whenever you call upon the name of Jesus, victory is inevitable!
The assurance of your salvation when you call upon that wonderful name is seen here in Romans 10:13(NLT): ‘For ”Everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.” So have no doubt in your heart whenever you call upon that name, the unimaginable happens! The impossible happens! The enemies are destroyed! The broken is repaired! The dead is brought to life! The chains are broken!
Wherever and whenever you notice the rise of any opposition from the realm of darkness, call upon the name of Jesus and the power in that name will work for you, as long as you stand with God.
I heard a powerful song today titled ‘Break every chain’ by Tasha Cobbs. Please endeavour to listen that song. The message is powerfully and insightfully true. A portion of its lyrics says, ”There is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain’. God bless you more,beloved as you press on in faith and victory.
Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole [duty] of man.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 (NIV)
Beloved, please imbibe the habit of searching the scriptures intensively,daily because therein is a lot of wisdom that can make life most fulfilling! Here in the verse above is a profound statement, it says what the whole duty of man is. This appears to be a springboard of every other activity we as humans might engage in as regards the worship of our great King!
If we fear God and keep commandments, living in the light of Christ will be a culture, love will dominate our relationships and ungodliness will have no place. We will be extremely wise because the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom(reference:Proverbs 9:10). If we keep God’s commandment, we will not lose the eternal life that we have in Christ.
We should not fail in this duty, friends. We should be imitable examples that will encourage others to live in God too. To do this, God’s help is needed. Once we are born again, we possess the Holy Spirit and he gives us that power to do what God wants. So, we should always stay with God and allow the Holy Spirit to direct us in every affair.
May we not fail in our whole duty to God as humans in Jesus name.

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
John 10:10 (NKJV)
Hallelujah to the source of life who gave himself to grant us access to eternal life! It’s amazing if one takes time to comprehend the invaluable nature of the gift of eternal life the saviour has made available to us. It is forever living for those who stay forever faithful to the master.
A lot of frustrating circumstances might pop up in life as we make our way through, but our tenacious faith should be in the source of life who loves us unconditionally,Jesus Christ. Whenever any good thing appear to be dead in your life, please refer to this statement of the Lord giving us life more abundantly in John 10:10. His words are ever true, amen.
I don’t know what ought to be living that is seemingly dead in your life at the moment, I pray in the name of Jesus that life be restored to it promptly.
Do not endure an existence short of vibrant life, instead, get up in faith, shake off every piece of numbness and enjoy the abundance of the life you have in Christ! Don’t let the devil rob you of that golden heritage that you possess by you wandering into doubt or any iniquity whatsoever, rather remain steadfast in Christ and stay alive!
My friend, please hold on to your faith in the Lord Christ with as much tenacity as possible. Let nothing sway you out of that glorious picture of blessed hope and perfect reunion with the father on getting to heaven. Make it a mission statement: I will make heaven,as the Lord helps me.
Let your faith be tenacious; know who you believe and follow him closest ever. In your faith, be able to declare, ‘Jesus it is you or you, no alternative,you are everything’. Let it not be a case of ‘Yes’ or ‘No’, let it always be a ‘YES’ or ‘YES’. Refer to what Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego said in Daniel 3:16-18 and take such a stance for God too. Make the father pleased to know that there is a child of his out there who is ready to stand for him whatever might be.
‘Oceans(where feet may fail)’, a song by Hillsong United has some encouraging lyrics that go thus: ‘Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders, let me walk upon the waters, wherever you would call me, Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander, and my faith will be made stronger, in the presence of my saviour.’ My friend, whatever you might be going through,never doubt the truth that with Jesus,all is well!
He gave his all for you on Calvary,please have all the faith you can in him. He is Lord forevermore. Please spend time in his presence today, give him sincere worship and reaffirm your faith in him. He will soon be back to take us home.
”Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding” Proverbs 4:7 (KJV)
Christians are top-class by nature; topnotch by design, by virtue of the unique structure we possess in the Lord Jesus Christ. God has put all amazing endowments in place as part of our make-up.
Now, we need to activate these features and start manifesting the divine glory upon our lives. This has to be done by getting wisdom; wisdom needed to function optimally and to utilise every potential the father has blessed us with.
The first place to start searching for wisdom is the Bible; we should endeavour to know as much of God’s words written therein as we can.
Also, we should imbibe the habit of seeking the Lord’s guidance and counsel through prayers and interactions with spiritual leaders. In addition, whatever industry we find ourselves in, we should stay updated and not outdated; know the latest trends and development; innovate and bring our God-given brilliance to life. Thus, through our achievements and success, glory will be given to the father and his most holy name will further be famed!
”The world’s sin is that it refuses to believe in me.” John 16:9(NLT)
In the message(MSG) translation, the world is referred to as ‘the godless world’. A world that does not honour the most high, does not live in obedience to his word and does not believe in him. Not believing in Jesus Christ is their basic sin, my friend, pls don’t be caught in it.
Situations that could test your faith may arise, but be strong and never allow doubt to set in! Believe Jesus Christ! Believe everything that he says he is! Remember, he is God and God doesn’t lie. Just press on and do not waver in your belief.
The godless word’s sin is that they do not believe in the son of God, Jesus Christ, and regardless of how ‘so-called logical’ their arguments could sound, do not believe anything contrary to what the Lord has told us in his words. Rather, reinforce your faith through more in-depth study of the word, intensive prayers and fellowship with the brethren( tomorrow is Sunday, a great opportunity to fellowship with the brethren! Please be in Church).
The time of the Lord’s return is near, please stay stronger than ever. Keep looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith(reference: Hebrews 12:2)
‘And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.’ Romans 8:28(NLT)
My friend, as long as you’re with Christ,whatever you might be passing through,please don’t give up. No matter how dark it is, the dawn will break. Just believe!
Remember, as believers,we walk by faith and not by sight(reference: 2 Corinthians 5:7), so, no matter what negative messages that the happenings around you seem to be relaying, hold tightly to what the Lord says instead. See it this way, you are on your way to a glorious place and different landscape dot the way, some good, some bad, but whatever appears doesn’t change where you are going to. With God, you will always end up well
Please take note of his words to the exiles in Jeremiah 29:11; as his beloved, see him also as having the best of thoughts towards you and believe him strongly for a glorious hope and a brilliant future!
It is however very important that you stand for him and love with all your heart always, only then will all things work together for good. In addition, pray in the Holy ghost and study more of his words for motivation. All will be well!
Stay motivated and blessed!
I was blessed(and the blessing continues) by one of my pastor’s teachings in church.
I summarize it thus: True prosperity is not measured by material abundance only. Rather, the presence of God is the hallmark of true prosperity. A prominent example is the prosperous life of Joseph which was distinctively blessed with the Lord’s presence(Genesis 39:2,21,23).
A prosperous person is someone that carries the presence of God. And this presence of the Almighty makes the difference in everything that he/she does.
For such a person, failure is a NO NO while success is an ever present YES!
A person is not truly prosperous until Jehovah sees him/her as prosperous. This means that a lot of people who we regard as prosperous by virtue of their physical wealth might really not be prosperous if they do not have God’s presence in their lives.So friend,as long as you have the presence of God in your life, you are prosperous!The physical manifestation of this prosperity is only a matter of time.
Please praise Jehovah in advance of the physical manifestation of your prosperity.Hallelujah!
Discovering one’s talents might take some time if it were a solo effort. However with God’s guidance and proper mentorship, one can discover more easily the treasure deposit one has been blessed with. Now, when one discovers one’s talents, what does one do with them? Does one just sit and relish the joy of discovery and possession?
No, don’t sit on them! Don’t just have them! Put them to work! Make the most of those gifts and contribute to the growth of the father’s kingdom through your use of them. Sharpen your skills, harness your strength and become an authority in whatever sphere your talent is meant for.
If a person is given an ice-cube and places it on the palm of his/her hand outdoors(in a place other than the very cold regions) and just stands staring at the ice-cube or even walks around smiling with it in hand, sooner or later, the ice-cube will melt and the person will be left with nothing, except with the slightest possibility, a tiny pool of water on the palm. But if that person goes in search of a working freezer to put the ice-cube into, that ice-cube will stay solid and last longer. Using the same analogy, a person with talent who does nothing with it might eventually lose that gift. However, the one who has a talent, discovers it and goes through the process of polishing and using it, first reap benefits from it, then might even get to discover other gifts resident within him or her.
Our Lord Jesus Christ said in Matthew 25:29(NLT) : ”To those who use well what they are given, even more will be given, and they will have an abundance. But from those who do nothing, even the little they have will be taken away.”
So,my friend, stop doing nothing with your talents and start doing everything to put them to work.
And the best way to put your talents to work is to use them in the service of the Almighty God. That is a very certain way to get eternal rewards.
