A WAR OF WORDS (PART 1)

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord. (Isa 54:17 KJV)

Words create, they build and with time they become real things. They are the foundation of everything manifest in the physical. God used words in creation. He fashioned this world using words. What is the significance of this to us as God’s children?

In the spirit realm, there are weapons that are constantly fashioned against your life. The intention of the enemy has never been anything but your destruction, confusion, fear and death. He tries every tactic he can find to achieve this ultimate agenda. Today I want you to know that there is no weapon formed or fashioned against you that will prosper. This is a true word but you need to take charge to ensure that these weapons take no effect on your life. You have a duty to deal with every word that is raised against you.

This is how it works, when words are spoken, some that you hear and others you don’t, you stand in a place where you must exercise authority over these words. To destroy them before they take effect and root. For words are like seeds that will germinate into plants and if they are negative judgments, they will bring a life of hardship and pain. You fight words with words, you must therefore rise up with decrees of your own, speaking in agreement with the Word of God. Uprooting all words of discord in the realm of the spirit that are operating against you!

You have the responsibility to speak into your own life. Don’t look for pity from people and position your life for failure through negatively positioning yourself with your words. Today you will declare your own promotion, your own increase, your own joy and your own success. No one will do this for you but yourself. Indeed not a single weapon will prosper as you rise to condemn every word that is raised against you in judgment. The power has been put into mouth to ensure that you fortify the walls of your life.

It is your responsibility to ensure your success. God has done everything that He must for your victory and success; it is left to you to maintain these using your mouth and words. You will succeed in this season! Heaven has conspired to ensure you make it!

BELIEVER’S BILL OF RIGHTS (2)

Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. (Gal 3:13-14 KJV)

The curse was upon us, designed to keep us in poverty, sickness and spiritual death. We were prisoners destined for eternal devastation! The redeemer, Christ broke the power of this being made a curse for us. The law was clear, “cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree.” Everything that was designed to keep you captive, every instrument that was designed for you to hang on was destroyed that day on the cross. Say AMEN.

As He broke the curse by being made a curse, He released the blessing of Abraham on the Gentiles. Gateways were opened that day for all who believe to march into an inheritance. The blessing now rests on you child of God! Never let the deception of the deceiver hoodwink you out of what belongs to you through his lies.

Stand in faith today, walk in the fullness of the Holy Spirit through faith! As you do so, the Holy Spirit, the power of God will cause you to be a witness of miracles without number. Every family, generational, marriage, business or whatever nature of curse is broken! No curse can and will rule over you because the work of the redeemer was fully accomplished.

Today, claim your rights as a child of God. Refuse to walk in ignorance as to what your inheritance contains. Don’t accept a low level of life just because the majority have done so. Rise to new levels of power, wealth and spiritual accomplishments. Turn the tide around in your family, business, community and nation by claiming everything that was done for us on the cross by Christ Jesus.

Declare today: Christ has redeemed me from the curse of the law- I am above poverty, sickness and spiritual death. The blessing of Abraham now rests on me. I am a winner wherever I am. I refuse to be a partaker of anything that is not in line with this blessing. I am the blessed and not the cursed in Jesus’ name.

THE CROSS!

Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; (Col 2:14 KJV)

 

Without Him, life is a cosmic of opposition and distress. A burden akin to swimming against the flow of a mighty river! It is spent in pain and tears. This is a serious; the world was tailored to reject you. An inhabitable land for any human to survive and live a maximum life on his own!

Today put the cross into perspective. Understand its purpose because a lack of knowledge will keep you in bondage. By the death of the cross, Jesus blotted out the handwriting of ordinances that was against you. All the laws and regulations that were put together by the enemy of your soul (the devil) were wiped away. The ordinances do not contain your name anymore! They are void of effect in the law that now governs your life.

You cannot be a slave of poverty; it was one of the things on these ordinances. You cannot be a slave of disease. Fear cannot enslave you. All forms of spirits and marauding demons that kept generations past in your family in bondage meet their demise at the cross. The cross took these things out of your way, meaning you must progress unhindered! He nailed this document to His cross giving you freedom to live, prosper, succeed and raise the next generation of champions.

The one who does not understand what Jesus did on the cross remains in the darkest alley of life. Groping, he is directionless and his spirit an open shaft for the devil and his cohorts to use at will, to volunteer for every experiment pleasing to their sight and kill without blinking. The cross is the sure plan given for your victory. It is an assurance of a great tomorrow, an insurance policy that pays whilst you live.

Contemplate the power of the cross today, consider the blood that was shed for the freedom that you must gladly receive. Life is a gift to you, live it to the full to please the One who gave His life so you can have yours. Live it with knowledge of Him. Express the uniqueness He put in you. Shine bright, that the world will rejoice in the One who made you. Refuse a low life governed by the enemy’s laws and rise above the limitations around you. Happy Easter!

BELIEVER’S BILL OF RIGHTS (1)

I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.
(Hosea 13:14 KJV)

Every affliction of the enemy has an expiration date and today I announce that every affliction of the enemy in your life must expire. May the power of Jehovah lift you up into your special space! Where sorrow can’t afflict you, where fear can’t harass you and where confusion can’t torment you.

I declare you watched and protected! The grave can’t hold you anymore. We know that our Lord and saviour is risen from the grave, it could not hold nor keep him captive. When the time of release came, the stone was rolled away and He emerged triumphant. You too must arise from every situation that threatened you and roped you in bondage. Jesus came as a ransom from the power of the grave. Death can’t keep you a slave through its agents of disease and pain. I declare you are ransomed today from the power of sickness.

As scripture declares:
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 1 Cor 15:55 (KJV)

May you walk as an agent of heaven! Free from sorrow, pain, disease, confusion and fear. May the world see the ransoming power of the father manifest in your life! May you in turn be an agent of this healing, an ambassador of this life that you have received.

His death on the cross freed you from any form of bondage. His resurrection brought justification in your life. You qualify for a new life- a life of victory and triumph. He died so that you may live. He lives so you may stand as a commander in this life.

Stand strong in whatever you do knowing the price for your victory was paid. Refuse to settle for less in this life. Don’t let the enemy negotiate you out of the best. Anything from him however small has no right to stand in your life.

Health is yours, prosperity is yours, joy is yours, progress is yours, and power is yours! All good things are yours and today they must manifest in your life, family, business and job. Whatever you touch with your hands to do is blessed! Stand I say, stand strong in your rights as a child of God.

As you come to awareness of your rights as a child of God, the devil must flee your life! Take nothing less; He died so you may live.

COMMANDING THE SUPERNATURAL (2)

And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not. And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out.
(Luk 4:35-36 KJV)

Years back we embarked on an evangelism outreach into rural Mozambique. The area we went into was riddled with poverty after the war. One of the things we encountered was the clear demonic presence and activity in the area. As we preached in this place, we ended up confronting a witch doctor who kept opposing the work we were doing. When we got to her shrine, we preached the word to her and began to pray and the demons in her began to manifest. They started speaking through her, saying they would not go away because all that the woman had in her homestead was their work. They were the ones that had given her the livestock and the home. In authority given to us, we prevailed against every demonic force that was at work in the area.

Jesus’ work here on earth demonstrates to us the role of a commander. He held authority over demonic spirits and they obeyed his voice. The work of the devil on earth is to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10). Wherever you see destruction and hurt, there is one who is responsible; his name is Satan and his cohorts. In authority and power Jesus addressed the activities of the devil.

His words were words of power. Anointed words to bring change and a difference! When he spoke, there had to be alignment of issues. The man had had an unclean devil in him and when he confronted Jesus, freedom came to him.

As you go through life and you come across challenges or issues that are overtly caused in the realm of the spirit, you must know that as a child of God you have been given authority and power to command issues.

Luke 10:19 tells us, “behold I give you power and authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and all over the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” We can operate as champions here on earth owing to the power and authority we have received. We can command the supernatural and emerge with victories without number.

I pray for you today that you awaken and this power and authority you have been given to operate here on earth. I pray that challenges that faced you bow down to the words of your command.

Declare today, I AM A COMMANDER!
