You are Healed in Jesus Name

Image
To receive healing in any area of your life; family, health, finance and relationship that had gone bad, you need the healing of Christ. Healing from God requires that you are cleansed from all forms of iniquities. Once you receive forgiveness of sin from God, and you have faith in God for your breakthrough, then you are a candidate for God’s miracle.

In Matthew 9:2 “Some people brought to him a paralyzed man on a mat. Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralyzed man, “Be encouraged, my child! Your sins are forgiven.”

Jesus probably knew that the paralyzed man was sick because of his sins; sin causes sickness, diseases and stagnation.

A Real Man of God Don't Need to Slap or Flog a Demon-Possessed Person to Deliver Them!

Image
In a Yoruba movie I saw yesterday some white-garment church members while trying to deliver an assumed demon-possessed girl, flogged the girl continuously for hours without casting anything out. Its so funny how people would assume that beating will deliver someone of demons!
Many White-garment churches and non- white garment churches and even some great men of God use physical force on members to deliver them from demons or witchcraft. It is a know practice among many spiritual outlets, particularly in Africa.

You remember the story of a Reverend in Nigeria that used fire to burn his members as punishment to deliver them from adultery? Of recent there was a serious controversy about a man of God who slapped a girl in the church for allegedly being a witch!

You Need Faith to Overcome

Image
Anyone can find themselves in an unpleasant situation. A temporary set-back in business or in career and even health. I say temporary because everyone is expected to overcome all unpleasant situations in their life.
Some preachers think a Christian is not supposed to be ill, or even have a little financial problem or small set-back in business. Common! Anyone can be attacked but everyone who is attacked is expected to come out safely. It takes faith for you to come out of crisis without bruises.
In the Book of Matthew 8: 23-27 Jesus having preached all day was tired and while in the boat returning home with his disciples fell asleep.
“Suddenly, a fierce storm struck the lake, with waves breaking into the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” Matthew 8: 24-25
Being tired here can connote a situation where you have worked so hard and not yielding results become tired. When tired, you are weak and unable to wor…

Hard Work and Focus are the Prerequisites to Success

Image
Before you can achieve success in any field of endeavor in life, you must be hardworking and have a total commitment to your goals and dreams.
For you to achieve greatness, you must be committed to, and focused on your goals and dreams, be it a career, talent or business.
I am not just saying this because I don’t want you to believe the Prosperity Preachers; no I am telling you this so that when a prosperity preacher tells you that you will become rich by December and you have faith that it will happen yet you don’t have anything you are doing right now, then you’d better watch out!

What is Wrong in Giving Gifts to Men of God?

Image
Giving gifts like cars, money or anything good even houses to men of God is not bad. What is bad is for a man of God put over the resources of a church or an organization to be dipping hands into the resources for his personal use.
I have heard many people criticize pastors for taking gifts, but I don’t see anything wrong in that. A man of God who prophecies over your life and you receive favor and good things from God and men deserves to be given gifts by you. The amount of what you give to your pastor depends on how much you also have and can afford to give out!

All You Need For It to Happen, is to Believe! (Matthew 8:5-13)

Image
In the book of Matthew 8 from verse 5 to 13 we read the story of a Roman officer whose servant was paralyzed and needed Jesus to come and heal the servant.

The Roman officer had already created one of the most important atmosphere for the healing to take place, he has already believed.
The Roman officer then took his second step for the healing to take place, he approached Jesus (approaching Jesus is "seeking", or "knocking", in Matthew 7:7-8, Jesus said, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened".) and the man said to Jesus, “Lord, my young servant lies in bed, paralyzed and in terrible pain.
Jesus said, ‘I will come and heal him’. But the officer said, ‘Lord, I am not worthy to have you come into my home- just say the word from where you are, and my servant will be healed” Matthew 8:6-8

The Most Influential Man That Ever Lived

Image
In so many ways he was very popular, influential and a good speaker. In those days when there was no means of using public address system, he spoke to 5,000 people who sat outside, no canopies, no tent, just in the open field, and they sat, listening to him for hours, without food. Who else can be this popular, even in this current world, that things are much easier!

If you have read about prophets in the Old Testament before Jesus Christ, you will notice that as strong as they were in prophesies, prayers and even miracles, they were not strong teachers like Jesus. Many preachers sprang up after the death of Jesus almost all of them using the pattern and life of Jesus to teach people up to our present time.

That means, his influence is still on, up to this current generation. Isn't that very awesome! He lived thousands of years ago, don't forget.
There were preachers in the Old Testament more than the few most of us know, they were very influential and popular too, but didn…

Righteous Shall Flourish (Final Part)

Image
By Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa
So God began to teach me- He said- bless your people, tell them they are bless, so when you shake my hand in the morning- I’m bless, in the evening- I’m blessed, in the night- I’m blessed.

Everywhere I go- I am blessed- halleluiah!

I’m blessed, I’m well, I’m on top, I’m not down, I’m success, I’m not failure, the Lord is on my side. Halleluiah!

The righteous shall flourish, your skin have nothing to do with your prosperity. Your city has nothing to do with your prosperity, where God is, there’s life.


Dangers of Sleeping With Another Man’s Wife

Image
By Charles Oluyori (ACK)
Sleeping with another man’s wife knowingly or unknowingly attracts some curses or punishments.
Please read the whole of Genesis 20 to get a clear picture of this.
Abraham was in Gerar as a foreigner and he introduced his wife to people as his sister. This could be as a result of fear of the people attacking and killing him or for financial benefits.
The King, Abimelech took interest in Sarah, Abraham’s wife and sent for her to be brought to him.
Mind you, Abimelech did not know that Sarah was Abraham’s wife, he thought she was his sister.
Here is the Punishment he would have had if he had slept with Sarah

Righteous Shall Flourish (III)

Image
By Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa
...and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.
We serve a full God. I’m a child of the God of fullness, full in health, full in job, full in prosperity, full in abundance, full of miracle, full of surprises, full in whatever I lay my hands to do. That God may fill your heart with the fullness of God.
So I took my name out of the list of those who have nothing. First of all I understood for the first time 17 years ago when I read in the bible that Christ may dwell in my heart and not poverty to dwell in my heart.

Take curse out of your head- remove the curse out of your head. Stop liking only bad things. They don’t believe that they deserve good things! They are poverty-oriented! They have been taught that the poorer they are, the nearer they are to God, whereas, poverty is a disgrace to God.
How can your heavenly Father have everything and you have nothing? How can your God be the Alfa and Omega and you are nothing? How can your God say, the silver are mine and the gold are mine and thousands cattle on the hilltop and the hill where the cattle are standing belong to my God; and you have nothing on earth- it’s a trick of the devil for you to think “the poorer you are the holier you will become” that’s not true.
Revelation 3:8 says, “Behold I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it”

Before you appoint him a king (Leader); he must have these qualities

Image
Before you can be qualified to be appointed as a king or a leader, you  must be humble, not displaying too much wealth and must not marry many wives.That is the first quality people must see in you before even considering you as a leader or a king!
Read the rest below as gotten from the Holy Bible…
1- “The king must not build up a large stable of horses for himself (The king must not have a large entourage, cars, escorts for himself” Deuteronomy 17:16

The Righteous Shall Flourish- Bishop Idahosa

This God that I have come to know now can make all things possible. In Luke 1:45 the bible says, “There shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord”
There shall be performance to your dreams, to your expectation. God says if you believe it, there’s going to be a performance.
And I asked myself, with who are all things possible? Who will perform my dreams? Who will bring to pass my heart desires? Who will give me the grace to realize my dreams? - God!

Obedience

Image
“Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the flood waters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. But anyone who hears my teaching and ignores it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash” Matthew 7:24-27

This part of Matthew 7 is like a summary of all that Jesus taught His followers, He taught them how to live a good life, how to make money and be rich, He taught them how they can live without sickness and diseases and how to gain eternity.

All through the book of Matthew 7 Jesus was explaining to people what it takes to live in this sinful world, how to overcome temptations, how to live above sin and how to please our heavenly Father.

Law Breakers will not go to Heaven

Image
“Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in Your name.’ But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws” Matthew 7:21-23
If you are disobedient to God, you break His commandments you will not enter into the kingdom of God.
It doesn’t matter how much speaking in tongues you can do, it doesn’t matter whether you are a pastor, a minister or the director of music in your church. As long as you don’t obey and keep God’s commandments you will not enter into the kingdom of God.

Moments of Breakthrough

Exodus 13: 17-18 “And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God led them to the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt: But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt.” (KJV)

Beware of Pastors

Image
Beware of pastors, more than half of the total pastors we have today are not true servants of God.
Well I have not done any research to confirm my argument, and I am not just trying to talk carelessly like many people I have heard talk about men of God. I am telling you this so that you can be careful and watchful.
Don’t ask me how I know this, the bible says, “By their fruit you shall know them”

Narrow is the way to Success

Image
Lord please give us understanding to know the true meaning of Your words in Jesus name, amen.
The way to success, the way to heaven, the way to God is not a wide way. It has no many options; it is not only narrow but also difficult.
Why are many people not successful? Let me first tell you that success is not the money or wealth that you have. Success is success in all aspects of your life; your wealth, family and finance.
Many people are not successful because they find it difficult to go through the process involved in achieving success, because it is a very narrow way which is also very difficult to pass through. Remember the narrower the gate, the more the difficult it is to pass through it.
Just like in written examinations a lot of people prefers the one with objectives because it gives you options to choose from and even if you get to fail the answer you would have at least not left your answer booklet empty unlike the case of essay questions where you are left without an optio…

You will get it Only if you Ask

Image
Large crowd followed Jesus as he came down the mountainside. Suddenly a man with leprosy approached him and knelt before him. “Lord” the man said, “If you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean” Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said, “Be healed!” And instantly the leprosy disappeared.” Matthew 8:1-3
The man with the leprosy was not ashamed to come out in the public where there were thousands of people following Jesus, I am sure within those crowd will be many more sick people who did not ask to be healed either because of shame or because of fear.

Your Survival Depends on The Word of God not Based on What you See…

Image
Deuteronomy 8:18A, “Remember the LORD your God. He is the one who gives you power to be Successful"

Many of us are depressed by the current economic situation in our country and even globally. Everything looks stagnant and nothing seems to be working.

People are stagnated, people are hungry, and people are confused and irritated because of what they are going through.

You can compare it with the times of the Israelites in the Bible… After they had left Egypt and camped in the wilderness (A place of confusion, frustration, anger and depression), for 40 years. When God was leading them back to their promised land (the place of rest, where there is peace, wealth, health and love).
