ALTARS AND TERRITORIAL STRONGHOLDS

INTRODUCTION

An altar is a gateway between the realm of the spirit and the earth realm that grants unhindered access to certain spirit beings to find legal expression in the earth.

An altar is a landing or access spot for spirits in the earthly realm. The inhabitants of the earth desire interaction with the spirits for assistance in manifesting possibilities. These spirit beings dictate the conditions (tokens and sacrifices) in order to manifest and make their altar habitation conducive. An altar is sacred and it's only an altar because of the presence of the sacrifice it carries. The sacrifice empowers the altar. So, we can define an altar as a sacred elevated platform where sacrifices and offerings are offered to gods, deities or spirits so as to open unseen doors in the realm of the spirit.

Altars are either highways for angelic traffic or demonic traffic into a territory, domain or throne.

Two Greek words for altar are mizbeah and bama, and they occur about 433 times in the King James Version of the Bible. This evidently underscores the spiritual and even physical significance of altars.

 

THE DOMINION OF AN ALTAR

Whoever raises or ministers as a priest at the altar controls the land, the structures, the organizations, and the people. The reason why traditional kings, chiefs, occultists, mullahs, marabous and satanic prophets wield so much power, influence and control is because they raise and function at very powerful altars. Thus they become the “true landlords”. On the other hand, believers appear to have so little influence on the land and governments, inspite of their superior spiritual power. The reason is clear our altars cannot match their altars in terms of total dedication and commitment to altars. This shows the need of the church to raise fresh and powerful altars and strengthen the existing ones around. We also need to understand that the altars and their priesthood most times decide who bears leadership rule in many parts of Africa. The thrones are set-up by altars, and the altars decide who sits on them. Therefore, if the Church will place men in positions of leadership and rulership in the land, it must begin at the altar.

Our present day assignment as either 'professional' intercessors, evangelistic intercessors, prophetic intercessors, apostolic intercessors or pastoral intercessors is to prayerfully discern and locate the various satanic and ancestral altars powering the various thrones in our localities, cities and nation through deliberate spiritual mapping, and destroy them. Then we can proceed to raise stronger godly altars in their place. This will eventually lead to power shift, first in the realm of the spirit, and afterwards physically.

Elijah made the mistake of not destroying the altars behind the throne of Ahab after killing all the prophets of Baal. He left those altars still standing. As expected, Queen Jezebel drew power, strength and reinforcement from these altars to harass and torment the servant of God. Elijah, with all his anointing and prophetic power became someone fleeing before an enraged and possessed woman.

This strange phenomenon may perhaps explain why it is the Caliphate Throne and it's enabling altars that bear rule most times in our nation, and are even at the present not only ruling, but are also striking fear and terror in the hearts of Nigerians everywhere through their rampaging kidnapper and killer herdsmen foot soldiers.

Our battle henceforth must therefore assume the dimension of 'Altar versus Altar' before our nation can be set free.

 

DEFINITIONS AND FUNCTIONS OF ALTARS

INTRODUCTION

As soon as God entered into a covenant with Abraham promising him and his offsprings the ownership of land of Canaan, Abraham without much hesitation, proceeded to build altars on the land (Gen. 12:1-8; 13:18), thus spiritually securing the land. During his life time, Abraham raised three main altars on the land of Canaan. Isaac took over from where his father stopped and built an altar on the same parcel of land (Gen. 26:23-25). Jacob, Isaac's second son completed the family practice of erecting altars to secure Canaan by building three main altars himself (Gen. 28: 10-2; 33:18-20; 35:6-15). So in three generations, we have seven altars - a perfect number, signifying that Canaan's land was eternally secured for Abraham's children - the Israelites. That's why no one or power can permanently take away Canaan from the Israelites. The land is perpetually covenanted to the God of Israel in heaven. And He watches over it.

1.1 FUNCTION OF ALTARS

When functional altars (shrines) or groves are built on a land, several spiritual things are set into motion within that vicinity because:

1. An altar is a place of sacrifice and offerings to the god(s) of your covenant (territorial spirits).

2. An altar is a place of contact with the spirit world. It is a place of trafficking of either angels or evil spirits (Gen. 28: 12).

3. An altar is a place of servicing of covenants

4. A functional altar activates ancestral covenants and stirs up the operation of community or territorial spirits.

5. An altar is a place of invocation – a place where you can call up your god or deity into manifestation (Gen. 12:8).

Church altars are a typical example of where spiritual invocations are made. Important spiritual functions like solemnization of marriages, children dedications, ordinations and ministrations are usually performed at altar locations in our churches. God and evil spirits respond to altars very quickly. Hence, we see God reacting favourably to a functional altar Noah built unto Him after the flood (Gen. 8:20-22). Similarly, Balaam knew that before he could successfully curse the Israelites, he had to raise altars. He begged that seven altars be built for him and seven rams and seven oxen be sacrificed thereupon (Num. 23: 1-3; 27-30; 24.1). As he attempted to invoke the spirit of witchcraft for enchantments, God stopped him. He knew he could not operate without altars.

So it is from these types of altars and high places on various parcels of land in Africa that terrible rituals are performed and serious invocations made regularly, thus bringing the land under a perpetual covering of darkness and captivity.

6. When you raise an altar on a portion of land, you are indirectly drawing that land into a covenant with the god or spirits you are serving. So lands with evil altars and high places on them are covenanted lands to dark spirits and powers.

7. Mountain, hill or elevated platform altars called high places are spiritual transmission stations. They transmit spiritual power, signal and information far and wide.

8. Altars are entry points (gateways) of spirits to the earth.

9. An altar is a place to draw power and strength (Isa. 40:28-31, Psa. 84:7, Rev. 14:18).

10. Evil altars are major hindrances to community, family and personal development and breakthrough.

11. Altars are launching pads for many spiritual operations and attacks. Most spiritual attacks we experience are mainly altar sponsored.

12. Evil altars have special hatred for progress and are the major sponsors of divers tragedies, epidemics and endemic poverty.

13. Evil altars harden people's heart against the gospel of Christ.

14. Evil altars are major reasons for stunted church growth and poor church attendance.

15. Closed heavens in nations, cities and communities are most times traceable to the presence of evil altars in these areas.

16. Wicked, godless and corrupt leaders and rulers draw their power mainly from evil altars.

17. The strength of an altar determines he who wins spiritual battles. With a weak and an ineffective personal altar, a Christian becomes very vulnerable to satanic altars of affliction.

18. Destinies of nations, cities and individuals are sometimes determined at the altars.

19. For the kingdoms of this world to become the kingdoms of our Lord, we MUST intentionally pull down the evil altars, gates and thrones established by the wicked, and then raise new ones to God. When men on earth raise a righteous altar unto God. It becomes a gateway for heaven and God can release His blessing there. This altar will also ensure a quick and effective territorial possession of the environment or territory.

20. When unrighteous or idolatrous altars are raised in a place, curse, confusion, calamity, anarchy, chaos, bloodshed, death, and satanic reign take over the territory. This possibly explains the reason for the usual clamour and frenzied eagerness of Muslims to build mosques (altars) in any new location they find themselves, an already existing and nearby mosque notwithstanding. This is done for only purposely to dominate, possess and take over land. Thus, you find mosques in almost every government secretariat, government houses, academic institutions, factories, airports, seaports and market places. Nigeria's presidential headquarters, the Aso Rock Villa in Abuja, alone has about three or four mosques and only one Christian (altar) church! Any wonder!

1.2 DIMENSIONS OF ALTARS

Basically altars are raised at three main levels:

1. Territorial Altars

Altars erected mainly on land, in houses, forests, cross-roads, markets and on mountain sides and tops of hills.

2. Marine Altars

Altars placed within water bodies - oceans, streams, wells, lakes and rivers (This is a haven for marine spirits that afflict several marine or riverine communities). Pharaoh of Egypt drew much of his satanic powers from the waters (Exodus 7: 14-15, 8:20).

3. Astral Altars

These are spiritual altars placed in many heavenly bodies such as the sun, the moon and the stars by secret satanic words and enchantments. This is where many rulers draw their power from. Many of them can't do without the services of stargazers, horoscopes and the like (Daniel 2:2; Genesis 1:14-18; Job 38:31-33; Judges 5:20).

Consequently, in strategic level warfare, we have to deal with altars or gates into the land, into the waters and into the heavens, before national, community and township emancipation can be effected.

MODERN REVIVAL HISTORY

(A Chronicle of Some Post-Bible Times Revivals)

By Rev. Dr. Moses Aransiola, Ph.D.

 

INTRODUCTION

Revival time is a most beautiful and desirable season to experience Christianity. Christians who came to the Lord during seasons of revival have been known to be more fervent than those who came to the Lord during seasons of spiritual decline in the Church. Every serious Christian should desire the glorious revival encounters of Christians in previous generations.

The history of revivals since the beginning of the Church age is a great resource for reliving the revival moves of the Holy Spirit today. Contemporary Christianity can profit from the principles, passion, and the prayer fire that birthed the revivals of old. For the Church to advance in its evangelical mission today, it must draw wisdom and inspiration from what God had done in the past through Christians of like passions.

The saints of old did not have the modern facilities we have today for communicating the gospel, but they had the Spirit of God and knew how to cooperate with Him through importunate praying and obedience. They did not even have all the Bible concordances and lexicons we have today, but they had fire in their bones acquired through tarrying before God in prayer.

I believe we can experience the revivals they experienced if we are willing to humble ourselves and pay the price they paid in prayer and sacrificial obedience. This catalogue of past moves of the Holy Spirit in the different nations of the world is an encouragement in this regard.

 

A. DEFINITIONS AND EXPRESSIONS OF REVIVALS

The greatest need of the world today is a mighty manifestation of the Spirit of God in revival power.

1. Revival is when God reveals Himself in awesome holiness and irresistible power.

2. It is when He visits the world of men to impart a fresh vision of His glory and grace and simultaneously to reveal man's sinfulness, inadequacy and desperate need of God's mercy.

3. During times of revival God's people are restored from backsliding, carelessness and inactivity.

4. They become preoccupied with the things of God.

5. They become intensely prayerful, attending God's house more frequently for fellowship and worship.

6. They develop a hunger for the preached word which illuminates and powerfully penetrates the hearts of its hearers, bringing conviction and corresponding response.

7. Believers develop a passion for souls and become deeply concerned about the spiritual welfare of the lost.

8. Consequently, during times of revival, gospel preaching takes on a new prominence and multitudes become converted.

9. Sometimes powerful anointings in special moves of God's Spirit produce physical manifestations such as deep conviction, tears, crying out, bodily prostrations, trembling, violent shaking or ecstatic laughter.

10. The results of true revival are equally spectacular.

11. The normal traits of ungodliness disappear. Blasphemy and filthy language, drunkenness and immorality, dishonesty and selfishness are all replaced by a sweet spirit of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

12. Sometimes entire towns or areas are affected. At other times whole nations are so blanketed with God's renewing activities that hardly any inhabited place is without some evidence of His glorious workings.

13. Revival in my own understanding and explanation is a supernatural divine presence and salvation outbreak or epidemic initiated by God that spreads fast and uncontrollably.

14. Real revivals are man desired, Spirit initiated or ignited, Spirit managed and prayer sustained.

B. A TYPICAL REVIVAL SCENARIO

(The American Visitation of God)

As the 18th century came to a close, the churches of America in the main were in a sickly state. False doctrines abounded. Dreary apathy prevailed. But in the midst of the national darkness, God was active in preparing an instrument. In the little town of Adams. New York, across the line in the year 1821, a young lawyer made his way to a secluded spot in the woods to pray. God met him there and he was wondrously converted, and soon after, was filled with the Holy Spirit. That man was Charles G. Finney. The people heard about it, became deeply interested, and as though by common consent, gathered into the meeting house in the evening. Finney was present. The Spirit of God came on them in a mighty, convicting power, and a revival started- It then spread to the surrounding countryside until finally nearly the whole of the Eastern states of America was held in the grip of a mighty revival. Whenever Finney preached the Holy Spirit was poured out. Frequently, God went before him so that when he arrived at a place, he found the people already crying out for God's mercy to save them. On one occasion, so the account goes, he was visiting a factory at the invitation of the factory owner. A lady on an assembly line looked sneeringly at the visiting preacher. His gaze met hers, .and immediately she fell under conviction of sin and began to weep for salvation. The reaction swept through the factory as everyone began to weep for their sins, so production had to be suspended in favour of the revival that broke out in the factory! Sometimes the conviction of sin was so great and caused such fearful wails of anguish that he had to stop preaching until it subsided. Ministers and church member were converted in their thousands during that visitation of God.

The 1850s found America again in a sad and sickened state just like the Nigeria of today, I guess. There was a great luxury on the part of few and great poverty on the part of many. Crime rates soared, violence was common, city streets were unsafe. Free love was espoused and homes and families were on the verge of collapse. Economic instability haunted the nation; unemployment raged out of control, corruption and injustice shamelessly walked hand in hand in high places. Racial division separated family and friends. Many wondered if “the land of the free and the home of the brave” was not writing the last chapter of its history.

In 1857, perhaps given the urgency of the severe national crisis which touched every area of life, God's people began to become serious about prayer for revival. There was a revival of prayer. This revival is often referred to as “The Prayer Revival”. There was first a revival of prayer, not causal passive prayer, but vital and important prayer. (Oh for such a prayer revival in Nigeria today!) That American Revival of 1857 from which has flowed almost a century of spiritual blessing, represents a challenge, even today. Like a spiritual tornado, the Spirit of God swept through the land, and the New England area of America became the centre of the great awakening, resulting in great numbers of people finding salvation. About some towns it was reported, “it was almost impossible to find anyone who had not been converted”. Like a great spiritual epidemic, tremendous conviction of sin swept through the land, and thousands turned to Christ. Drunkards, as they stood at the saloon bars, gamblers as they sat at casino tables, congregations as they sat in churches, even passengers on board of in-coming ocean liners came under the influence of this strange and wonderful move of God, and knelt to it in repentance, and found pardon. In many places, dance-halls, theatres and gambling dens were closed and emptied, new churches began to spring up everywhere, family altars were restored, and the spirit of prayer grew in intensity until anyone could cross the land and found a mid-day prayer meetings in almost any town. It was estimated that as many as 50,000 decisions for Christ were made in a week when this gracious visitation was at its height! Oh, Lord, I pray, do this for us in Nigeria.

“But how shall the doors of the nations be opened, and kept open, and how shall the powers of that oppress the nations be broken, and how shall labourers be sent into the harvest fields, with the anointing of God upon their ministries?”

 

C. WHEN REVIVAL IS NEEDED

Revivals usually occur after a prolonged spiritual and moral decline. By definition, a 'revival' requires a state of death, neglect or loss. This has always been true historically. The Church becomes apathetic to its master, its morals and its mission. It loses its zeal and becomes ineffective. Its worship becomes dull and uneventful and its membership declines. It needs to be 'revived' occasionally, for its own sake.

 

D. THE SIX MAIN WAVES OF REVIVALS IN HISTORY

There have been several very distinct periods of revival history since the 16th century Reformation. Their occurrence has often appeared as spasmodic, haphazard, unpredictable and irregular.

There have been six of these major periods or waves from the Reformation to the turn of the 20th century, from 1727, 1792, 1830, 1857, 1882 and 1904.

I have chosen to use the "wave" analogy to illustrate these six periods of time, when God poured out His Holy Spirit, reviving the Church and awakening the lost.

 

1. THE FIRST GREAT AWAKENING OF 1727 ONWARDS

Commonly called "The Great Awakening".

Historically, the beginning of this awakening can be traced to the Moravian community called "Herrnhut" (the Lord's watch), where a visitation from God was experienced after a period of prayer, repentance and reconciliation in 1727. Nikolas Count Ludwig Von Zinzendorf, a German, was the leader of the movement that began a 24 hour-a-day prayer meeting, which lasted the next 100 years. In the next 65 years that small community sent out 300 radical missionaries. Their revived German Pietism was destined to influence two other harvest fields, which were on God's agenda for that time - England and America.

 

PRACTICAL EFFECTS OF THE REVIVAL

The effects of the revival were phenomenal. Statistics are hard to find, but we know that 150 new Congregational churches began in a 20-year period and 30,000 were added to the church between 1740 and 1742, probably doubling its size. Moral results were equably noticeable. Nine university colleges were established in the colonies. The wild frontier society was thoroughly Christianized. Early missionary desire began to emerge, most notably in the ministry of David Brainerd among the Indians. His journals are essential reading for all those seeking revival.

 

REVIVAL IN BRITAIN

Back in Britain a massive movement of revival had begun at the same time and was bound up with the ministries of two young men, George Whitefield and John Wesley. Both had been members of the Holy Club in Oxford while they were students. Wesley went off, still unconverted, to America to preach to the Indians in 1736, returning in 1738. The only benefit of this venture was his contact with the Moravians, who he could not understand, but for whom he had a great respect. On Wesley's return, George Whitefield had been converted and was already preaching with great effect. For 34 years he exercised a most amazing preaching ministry, with revival signs often following him.

The height of Whitefield's ministry was at the famed Cambuslang Awakening in 1742, when 20,000 and 30,000 people gathered to hear him preach, followed by mass weeping and repentance for one and a half hours.

During George Whitefield's ministry he preached in almost every town of England, Scotland and Wales, crossing the Atlantic seven times; winning countless souls in Boston, New York and Philadelphia. He publicly preached an estimated 18,000 power-packed messages.

George Whitefield's friend, John Wesley, will go down in history as the architect of the 18th century evangelical revival. Converted in 1738, at the well-known Aldersgate Street prayer meeting, he proceeded to preach whenever the opportunity afforded itself, usually in church. Then, in 1739, at Whitefield's request, he preached in the open air at Bristol and followed Whitefield in his preaching places. There began those unusual manifestations which periodically attended his and Whitefield's ministry; falling, crying out, fainting, shrieking, convulsions etc.

Wesley was an itinerant preacher for 65 years. He traveled an estimated 250,000 miles on horseback to preach 40,000 sermons! He wrote 233 books, including his voluminous journals and a complete commentary on the whole bible. He left behind him 750 preachers in England, 350 in America; 76,968 Methodists in England and 57,621 in America. With Charles, his brother, he penned 9,000 hymns. Wesley's influence has far outrun his long life.

 

2. THE SECOND GREAT AWAKENING OF 1792 ONWARDS

This little-known 'Great Awakening' lasted about 30 years and its immediate effects were extraordinarily widespread. It also gave a remarkable impetus to world missions.

This awakening began as a prayer-movement in 1784, when John Erskine of Edinburgh re-published Jonathan Edward's earnest plea for revival prayer.

The beginning of the revival can be traced to the industrial towns of Yorkshire in late 1791, spreading through all areas and denominations. The Methodists alone grew from around 72,000 at Wesley's death in 1791 to almost a quarter of a million within a generation.

PRACTICAL RESULTS

1. A remarkable result of these UK revivals was the founding the British and Foreign Bible Society.

2. The Religious Tract Society

3. The Baptist Missionary Society

4. The London Missionary Society

5. The Church Missionary Society and a host of other evangelistic agencies.

6. It also achieved considerable social reforms; evangelical Anglicans successfully fought for the abolition of the slave trade and prisons were reformed.

7. Sunday Schools began and a number of benevolent institutions were commenced.

 

THE AMERICAN VERSION

In the US the concept of prayer was very widespread from 1794 and by 1798 the awakening had broken out everywhere. Every state and every evangelical denomination was affected. Timothy Dwight, grandson of Jonathan Edwards, took over Yale College in 1795 and saw over half the students converted in just one year. Other colleges enjoyed similar movements of the Spirit.

All denominations were blessed by this revival. An utterly lawless community was transformed into a God-fearing one. The American Bible Society, American Tract Society, American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Mission.

The revival of 1792 onwards lasted around 30 years until around the early 1820's, but was soon followed by the 1830's revival.

 

3. THE THIRD GREAT AWAKENING OF 1830 ONWARDS

Fast on the heels of the Second Great Awakening, the third wave of heavenly power crashed on the shores of the evangelical world, this time without the usual decline. Asahel Nettleton and Charles Finney are names which dominate the American scene, while another American, James Caughey was the most notable revival evangelist active in England.

Finney's well documented ministry began in 1830 and netted 100,000 souls within one year!

The greatest effect of this revival was felt far beyond the boarders of North America and for centuries to come.

THE UK VERSION

In the UK revivals were widespread throughout the 1830's. Evangelists like Robert Aitkin and William Haslam held highly successful missions. Other noticeable personalities were J. N. Darby and George Müller who pioneered orphanage work, evangelism and missionary enterprise.

Scotland also boasted some great revivalists like John and Horatius Bonar, the revival veteran, Thomas Chalmers, Robert Murray McCheyne, W. H. Burns and his son, William Chalmers Burns.

On the wider international front, there were local revivals in various parts of the world, particularly in Scandinavia, Central Europe, South Africa, the Pacific Islands, India, Malabar, and Ceylon.

This awakening, which began in 1830 only lasted about 12 years ending around 1842.

 

4. THE FOURTH GREAT AWAKENING OF 1857 ONWARDS

This Great Awakening (often called the 3rd) was the greatest to date in its extent, effects and lasting impact. It began slowly in Canada, when 21 people were saved, and grew steadily until between 25 and 40 people were converted each day. Slowly reports of small awakenings began to emerge from various states in America. Then, in September 1857 Jeremiah Lanphier, a businessman and convert of Finney's (a decade before), began a noon day prayer meeting on Wednesdays in a New York church. The small but growing numbers decided to meet daily in early October. Within six months over 10,000 business men were meeting in similar meetings across America; confessing sins, being converted and praying for revival. It was a lay-led movement that harvested a million souls in two years. In 1858, from February to June, around 50,000 people a week were added to the church - in a nation whose population was only 30,000,000.!

 

THE UK VERSION

Across the Atlantic another million were won to Christ by 1865. This was in Britain's population of 27,000,000. Ulster saw 100,000 converted, Scotland 30,000, Wales 100,000 and England 500,000.

Evangelistic, missionary and philanthropic enterprises blossomed on every hand. Moody and Sankey enjoyed their greatest success. William and Catherine Booth, converted under the ministry of James Caughey, launched the Salvation Army and attracted great crowds to Christ. Charles Haddon Spurgeon preached to capacity crowds each week, filling the largest halls in London. Hudson Taylor began the China Inland Mission. David Livingstone and Mary Slessor propagated missionary work in Africa. Such was the impact of this fourth great awakening.

The revival also swept around the world. Rapid growth was reported in continental Europe, western Russia, Australia, The South Seas, South Africa and India.

 

5. THE FIFTH GREAT AWAKENING 1880 ONWARDS

This revival initially centred around the ministry of D. L. Moody, whose ministry may be described as "highly successful crusade evangelism interspersed with periodic revivalism". Moody began his ministry in Chicago and entered full-time Christian work in 1860, concentrating on his Sunday school and YMCA work. He was God's chosen vessel to take the sparks of the 1857-60 revival to ignite a fresh passion for God and for souls around the world. Moody traveled, with his singing evangelist companion, Ira Sankey, to England a number of times.

Revival results followed Moody and Sankey as they traversed England, Ireland and Scotland, filling the largest halls in the land.

Moody returned to England in 1881-83 and had an astounding effect on a new breed of evangelists in the U.S., Britain and across the world. His mission in Cambridge, in 1882, marked the beginning of a worldwide interdenominational student missionary movement.

Moody founded the Moody Bible Institute in 1883, with an emphasis on missions. The Christian and Missionary Alliance was formed during this time by A. B. Sampson and the Christian Endeavour Movement was born out of a revival in Portland, Maine, in 1880-1881.

Other evangelists, spurred on by Moody, threw themselves into the harvest. Andrew Murray exercised a powerful ministry in South Africa, as did John McNeil in Australia.

Revival hit Japan in the early 1880's, increasing the adult membership from 4,000 to 30,000 in five years. The China Inland Mission experienced a large influx of new missionaries. New missions were planted in many unevangelized fields and revivals were reported in India, Africa, South Africa, Madagascar, Australia, Central and South America.

We may well describe this resurgence "a missionary revival" which took the flame of the 1859 revival even further around the world in all nations – just in time for the great 20th Century awakening.

 

6. THE SIXTH GREAT AWAKENING

In 1902, Torrey and Alexander conducted meetings in Melbourne, Australia, resulting in over 8,000 converts. This news spread like wild fire, igniting a passion for prayer and a fresh expectation for God to work in similar ways everywhere.

In 1904, Torrey and Alexandra were in Cardiff, Wales and, in the light of a minimal response to the Gospel, they called for a day of prayer and fasting. Suddenly things changed dramatically and thousands were converted during the next 12 months.

On the day of prayer and fasting (according to Torrey) Evan Roberts received an anointing of the Holy Spirit with great power, in a meeting conducted by Seth Joshua. Here the Welsh Revival began. It was Sept 22nd 1904.

However, the roots of the revival went back further. Young Evan Roberts had been praying for revival and an outpouring of the Holy Spirit for 11 years. Through a vision he received, Roberts believed that God was going to win 100,000 souls. In response to a further vision, he returned home in Loughor from Newcastle Emlyn where he had been enrolled in a Bible College.

During his first few meetings the heavens opened. God's presence seemed to fill the air. Many were prostrated with conviction, others cried for mercy and many were so filled with the Spirit they pleaded with the Lord to stay His hand.

Soon the revival spread to other places in South Wales. Teams of young people assisted preachers like Roberts, Sydney Evans, Seth Joshua, Joseph Jenkins and R. B. Jones. The revival then took hold in North Wales. Within six months 100,000 had come to Christ!

The Welsh Revival was soon the main topic of conversation throughout the Christian world. Wherever the news went it seemed to cause passionate prayer and began to ignite revival fires everywhere. Christians across Great Britain turned to prayer and church membership increased throughout the land.

In Scandinavia a current revival was fanned into a mighty blaze, as a result of the Welsh Revival. Germany was similarly affected as the flame spread across Europe. Austria, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, the Balkans and Russia experienced awakenings.

The United States felt the after-shock of the Welsh Revival in almost every place. Prayer, conviction and conversion spontaneously occurred, resulting in unusual church growth.

THE BIRTH OF THE PENTECOSTAL MOVEMENT

In 1906 the modern Pentecostal Movement was born in Azusa Street, in Los Angeles, after a succession of local revivals through 1905. News of the Welsh Revival encouraged more prayer and suddenly the Holy Spirit descended. Daily meetings were held for the next three years. Visitors flocked there to catch the power of the Spirit and they were not disappointed. One of the main vessels God used for this move was a black layman called W. J. Seymor. No one could have imagined that this was the beginning of the greatest and most effective missionary movement that the world had ever seen. It marked the birth of what was once called 'the third force in Christendom.' Some would argue that, 100 years later, it has grown into the largest and most powerful force.

Almost no country in the world was excluded from the effects of this incredible revival. Almost every nation, on each continent, received new power from heaven, a new passion for prayer and for the lost. Tens of millions have come to the Lord as a result.

 

E. MODERN REVIVAL IN SOUTH KOREA

South Korea was like Nigeria or any other third World nation in 1952 and 1953.

First, that nation was occupied by the Japanese before and during the Second World War. The Japanese terrorized and burnt down all churches, killed and imprisoned many ministers and Christians.

This continued unabated until Japan was defeated and humiliated in the Second World War. After that, Korea secured her independence. But no long after, in 1950, the communists led by the Soviet Union and China stirred up the North Koreans to overrun the South so as to impose their totalitarian rule on them.

So another savage war was fought. It took a combination of fourteen nations under the banner of United Nations to push back the communist North and deliver the country. So the country was in total ruin.

It was during and immediately after this crisis that God raised up men like Dr. Kung Chick Han, Dr. Paul Yonggi Cho and others. Their ministries had humble beginnings, but they held unto God for a mighty outpouring on their land They gave themselves to sacrificial and importunate prayers holiness and discipline. The Lord heard them and sent His revival to South Korea. Today, South Korea is a nation to reckon with in spiritual matters. It is the present seat of God's revival.

Pastor Yonggi Cho runs the largest single church in the whole world today - a church of almost 900,000 believers! He has an auditorium that can seat up to 30,000 people and they run about 7 services every Sunday, yet the church cannot contain the people. Every month he has 20,000 new people coming to his church to accept Christ. So, when he has accommodation problems he would just assimilate only about 10,000 converts and distribute out the 10,000 others to some other churches! Presently, about 15-20 churches are founded every day in South Korea. In South Korea, the spiritual birth rate is four times the natural birth rate. That is, if they give birth to one million babies a year, the Church of God would give birth to about four million new believers that same year!

There is no other nation in the world where that kind of thing is happening. The natural birth rate is usually more than spiritual birth rate. But not in South Korea. At the present rate, in ten years, all Korea would be Christian. They were a Buddhist country before, 98 percent Buddhist for that matter. But today, they are almost 30 percent Christian!

Furthermore, in Korea, there is no nominal Christianity. I found this out in Singapore too. Revival is there. When you go to either a Catholic Church or a Baptist Church or an Anglican Church or a Methodist Church or any so called Orthodox church you'll be amazed at what you'll find - spontaneous worship, speaking in tongues, deliverance, etc.' There is no orthodoxy in South East Asia. They hardly even use hymn books! You'll see Reverend Fathers in their cassocks blasting away in tongues! It's amazing.

There is hardly any difference between the Pentecostals and these churches. South East Asia is having its turn of revival. This was brought about by years of importuned and agonizing prayers. We can do it too.

CONCLUSION

With this cloud of witnesses as highlighted above, our generation is left without any excuse for spiritual and evangelical failure. If God did it in the past through ordinary men like us, He certainly will do it again if we follow the evangelical faith and sacrifice of those who obtained the promise of revival before us. I personally believe that our world is already overdue for another great move of the Holy Spirit.

SECTION 2

 

PRAYER: THE PRECURSOR OF REVIVAL

(Application for the Spirit of prayer)

 

INTRODUCTION

Dr. A. T. Pierson once said, “There has never been a spiritual awakening in any country or locality that did not begin in united prayer.”

Let me recount what God has done through concerted, united, sustained prayer.

Not many people realize that in the wake of the American Revolution (following 1776-1781) there was an American national moral decline. Drunkenness became epidemic. Out of a population of five million, 300,000 were confirmed drunkards; they were burying fifteen thousand of them each year. Profanity was of the most shocking kind. For the first time in the history of the American settlement, women were afraid to go out at night for fear of assault. Bank robberies were a daily occurrence.

What about the churches? The Methodists were losing more members than they were gaining. The Baptists said that they had their most wintry season. The Presbyterians in general assembly deplored the nation's ungodliness. In a typical Congregational church, the Rev. Samuel Shepherd of Lennos, Massachusetts, in sixteen years said he had not taken one young person into fellowship. The Lutherans were so languishing that they discussed uniting with Episcopalians who were even worse off. The Protestant Episcopal (Anglican) Bishop of New York, Bishop Samuel Provost, quit functioning; he had confirmed (baptized) no one for so long that he decided he was out of work, so he took up another employment.

The Chief Justice of the United States, John Marshall, wrote to the Bishop of Virginia, James Madison, that the Church 'was too far gone ever to be redeemed.' Voltaire averred and Tom Paine echoed, 'Christianity will be forgotten in thirty years'.

Take the liberal arts colleges at that time. A poll taken at Harvard University had discovered not one believer in the whole student body. They took a poll at Princeton University, a much more evangelical place, where they discovered only two believers in the student body and only five that did not belong to the filthy speech movement of that day. Students rioted. They held a mock communion at Williams College, and they put on anti-Christian plays at Dartmouth. They burned down the Nassau Hall at Princeton. They forced the resignation of the president of Harvard University. They took a Bible out of a local Presbyterian church in New Jersey, and they burnt it in a public bonfire. Christians were so few on campus in the 1790's that they met in secret, like a communist cell, and kept their records in code so that no one would know.

How did the situation change? It came through a concert of prayer. God came in a massive revival as men united to pray. A sweeping revival turned the tide.

 

A. THE SPIRIT OF PRAYER, A PREREQUISITE TO REVIVAL

There are two kinds of means requisite to igniting a revival: the one to influence men, the other to influence God. Prayer produces such a change in us it renders it consistent for God to do as it would not be consistent for Him to do otherwise.

When the children of God pray fervently, they are in the right inner condition to enable God to hear them.

Prayer is in a chain of causes which lead to a revival, and is a cause which is as important as the proclamation of the truth. Many zealously preached the gospel to cause people to turn around but have laid too little emphasis on prayer. They preached eagerly, talked to individuals, and handed out tracts but, to their surprise, with little success. The reason why they could not achieve more was because they neglected the other form of support, which is fervent prayer. They forgot that the truth itself has no effect without the Spirit of God.

 

B. THE SPIRIT OF PRAYER AT WORK

What then constitutes a spirit of prayer? Prayer is the state of the heart. The spirit of prayer is a state of continual desire and anxiety of soul for the salvation of sinners. It is something that weighs people down. A Christian who has this spirit of prayer feels anxious for souls. It is the subject of his thoughts all the time, and makes him look and act as if he had a load on his heart. He thinks of it by day and dreams of it by night.

Sometimes this feeling is very deep; persons like Charles G. Finney were known to have been bowed down so that they could neither stand nor sit as this spirit rested on them. In the great Revivals of 1826, these experiences were common. It is just what Paul felt when he said: "My little children, of whom I travail in birth..."

This travail of soul is that deep agony which persons feel when they lay hold on God for such a blessing and will not let Him go until they receive it. This deep, continual, earnest desire for the salvation of sinners and God's mighty move is what constitutes the spirit of prayer for a revival.

When this feeling exists in a church, unless the Spirit is grieved away by sin, or lack of discipline, invariably there will be a conversion of sinners to God. This burning desire increases more and more until revival comes.

 

C. PRAYING THROUGH THE SPIRIT OF PRAYER

• And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn (Zech. 12:10)

• And I fell down before the LORD, as at the first, forty days and forty nights: I did neither eat bread, nor drink water, because of all your sins which ye sinned, in doing wickedly in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger. For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure, wherewith the LORD was wroth against you to destroy you. But the LORD hearkened unto me at that time also. And the LORD was very angry with Aaron to have destroyed him: and I prayed for Aaron also the same time (Deut. 9:18-20).

 

The spirit of prayer helps you to pray with the energy and oil of the Spirit. It makes praying easy and enjoyable for the believer. This is the best way to pray. This mode of prayer is enjoyable and enduring. Satan and his demons are clueless and helpless when we pray in this mode. Even the praying person is helpless under the power of the spirit of prayer. The spirit of prayer may not obey the principle that says 'the spirit of a prophet is subject to the prophet.' When the spirit of prayer grips you, you cannot stop praying. Charles G. Finney, David Brainerd and Father Nash of old time America had such experiences. Men who are enslaved by the spirit of prayer may sit at a dinner table, about to bless the food, and the spirit of prayer comes upon them. The fire of prayer begins to surge in them. They may say, 'excuse me for a while,' and go into an inner room where they may spend another 12 hours in prayer. That is the spirit of prayer in operation. The scripture calls it the spirit of grace and supplication. The spirit of prayer makes you pray in timelessness. You may give yourself one hour to pray, but by the time you are done, you've prayed for 5 hours and it feels like 5 minutes. Sometimes, after spending such time in prayer the burden is yet to be discharged, but because you have to attend to some schedules, you go out with a raging volcanic fire inside of you, and until that burden is released, you are helpless, and you are so disorganized. You are so agitated such that you cannot do any serious work until that burden is released. This is called the spirit of prayer.

Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola the founder of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) in Nigeria was a man that obviously carried the spirit of prayer. That praying spirit is still in that denomination till today. His spirit lives on in that denomination even after his death. It was recorded that there was a time he was praying in the wilderness with some of his disciples. He was flat on his face for over 72 hours praying and groaning in the place of prayer. As he prayed, his men that followed him got tired and weary in the place of prayer, so they kept aloof watching him from afar praying. While he was praying, it was said that a big python crawled towards them and the other people with him took to their heels. Since the man of God was praying face down, he was not conscious of his physical environment. The python made straight for where he was praying and crawled over him. As the python went over him, it dried up instantly because of the spiritual current generated in the place of prayer. The python was literally electrocuted! The prayer fire generated by this God's general of prayer got the python electrocuted. This same man will go into the forest to pray and forest demons will be running in haste out of such forest at the other end. He was a carrier of great power through the spirit of prayer.

If we want to enter such dimension of prayer and have revival, we must be ready to pay the price. It is for those who are ready for spiritual enslavement and holy detention in prayer.

 

D. BENEFITS OF THE SPIRIT OF PRAYER

Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God. For I bear him record, that he hath a great zeal for you, and them that are in Laodicea, and them in Hierapolis (Col. 4:12-13).

1. The spirit of prayer makes prayer and worship easy, vibrant and lively.

2. It eliminates spiritual dryness. Not for a single moment do you experience dryness of any kind. The oil is ever flowing and the river of living water is ever fresh.

3. It makes us to pray when we feel like praying and when we do not feel like praying. With the spirit of prayer, you have no choice; you are helpless. Your lips and feet may be vibrating wherever you go because of the burning fire on the inside of you.

4. This spirit literally enslaves one in the place of prayer. You are not in control; the spirit is in control. Whenever you try to check it, your heart is in turmoil. This spirit is uncheck-able; you just boil and burn inside and nothing going on around interests you.

5. The spirit of prayer may not obey the principle of 'the spirit of the prophet is subject to the prophet,' particularly, in the closet. In the public, you may try your best to apply some discipline and maturity, particularly when you are in church or running a church. But you later pay dearly for it when you're alone in the closet.

6. It makes prayer fervent and fiery.

7. It helps us in prophetic intercession. Prophetic intercession is when you labour in prayer for an unknown subject, just pouring out your heart, maybe in tongues or in your understanding. You keep praying, maybe for a couple of hours and then, the burden suddenly ceases or eases and then you feel light, and you sense a note of victory. Somewhere on this planet, victory has been achieved through your prayer. A life might have been saved, or something spectacular might have happened somewhere. Prophetic intercession is labouring for subjects that you do not understand naturally. Nevertheless, the Holy Spirit uses you to pray for such things, as emergencies somewhere, without you even knowing the details. Sometimes, you may get to know later on. It is praying for subjects and issues that you do not have understanding of in the natural.

8. The spirit of prayer helps us to pray with precision and accuracy, because we are praying by the mind of the Holy Spirit.

 

E. STRUCTURES FOR RECEIVING THE SPIRIT OF PRAYER

1. Genuine salvation

2. Holy Spirit baptism

3. A word soaked life - your spirit man is soaked in the word of God

4. A life of uncompromising righteousness

5. A strong appetite for prayer materials

6. A heart cry for more of God, His power and His move - revival

7. A strong desire to be more prayerful

8. Regular contact and association with distinguished men and women of prayer

9. Readiness to pay the price

10. A ceaseless longing and cry for the baptism of the spirit of fire and the spirit of prayer.

 

F. HOW DO YOU RECEIVE THE SPIRIT OF PRAYER?

1. Acknowledge that there is a spirit called the spirit of grace and supplication.

2. Desire and hunger for it.

3. Cry for it as you cry for the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

4. Seek for transference of that spirit.

5. Get occupied with God's work.

6. Have a definite prayer project: i.e. praying for certain notorious sinners to be saved, or praying for a gospel breakthrough in Arab nations, etc.

7. Be burdened for revival and divine visitation in your church, community, nation, and in the world.

 

G. APPLICATION FOR THE SPIRIT OF PRAYER AND FRESH FIRE

 

INTRODUCTION

Fire is known for its military and aggressive nature. Fire is known globally as a problem solver. For those who have no respect for fire, they learn their lesson in a hard way as fire devours and kills instantly. The glory that accompanies both physical and spiritual fire is like that of the sun. The sun is a ball of fire that services the entire solar system, and its glory is seen by all creation. Fire is an aspect of God and His nature. It burns, consumes, destroys and does not compromise.

Fire is also a goal/result getter. It transforms wood to coal and ashes. The devil and his cohorts stand no chance when we use the fire of God against them in battle. This spiritual fire, however, must be generated from the altar of prayer and worship. A child of God whose prayer altar is fire saturated is the only one that can take the battle to the gates of the enemy. When the fire of God comes afresh on our altars, the glory of God will show brighter in our lives and communities.

ESCAPE FROM NEEDLESS MINISTERIAL AFFLICTIONS

PRAYER TUTORIALS 1

 

ESCAPE FROM NEEDLESS MINISTERIAL AFFLICTIONS

 

INTRODUCTION

All God-ordained ministries have their peculiar afflictions, but there are afflictions that are needless. I have observed with sympathy many sincere hardworking ministers labouring tirelessly and endlessly without much to show for it. Some become frustrated and give up. Prolonged affliction leads to confusion; confusion leads to frustration; frustration leads to limitation, and limitation leads to failure in life and ministry. We can save ourselves a lot of needless affliction in ministry by learning some principles of ministry from biblical ministers and biblical case studies as shall be referenced in this teaching.

 

A) SOME PECULIAR SOURCES OF MINISTERIAL AFFLICTIONS.

1. Personal defective roots and faulty foundations - acquired trans-generational community, territorial and family battles. Evil or defective family roots undealt with most times manifest later in life and ministry to cause serious troubles and frustrations.

2. Location of work in altar polluted and afflicted domains.

3. Heavens unopened before and during ministry or secular work.

Those Who Opened Their Heavens

- Example of Jesus Christ (Matt. 3:16-17; Lk.3:21-22; Jn.1:51).

- Example of Paul, the apostle (Gal. 1: 15 – 18).

- Example of the first apostolic team (Acts 1:12-14; 2: 1 – 4).

Open heavens life and ministry guarantees uninterrupted Holy Spirit and angelic assistance. Jesus used prayers to open His heavens before starting off His ministry.

 

B) ALTARS, ROOTS, AND FOUNDATIONS AND MINISTRY / CHURCH HEALTH AND GROWTH.

The Effects of Evil Altars and Foundations on the Spiritual Climate and the Heavens of Corinth, the Seat of the Corinthian Church, Founded/Planted by Apostle Paul.

1. Apostle Paul was a very insightful and strategic apostolic Intercessor (Eph.1:17 - 23; 2 :1-5; 3 :9 - 10; 6 :10 - 18; 2 Corinthians 4:1 – 4).

2. He moved around in his ministry work with a company of equally well trained and anointed territorial intercessors (Acts 14:19-21; 20:4-6).

3. Paul never started a ministry work in a domain without first undertaking a survey (spiritual mapping) of the territorial structure of the place - spiritual geography and topography (Acts 17:16 - 17, 21–23).

4. Through this he often discerned the territorial ruling spirits (strongholds and strongmen) of the area.

5. With proper insight at the sites, he and his disciples engaged the ruling powers in informed violent spiritual warfare, pulling them down and rendering them impotent (Acts 17:22 – 23).

6. The result was usually massive conversion of formerly hardened natives and the establishment of very flourishing churches.

7. This was the strategy that birthed the church at Ephesus (Acts 19:1–23)

8. Paul stayed in Ephesus for a considerable long time to deal with the forces in the city. He overthrew the dominant ruling strongman, or principality called Diana, the goddess of the Ephesians (Acts 19:24–41).

9. The church at Ephesus emerged from a victorious spiritual contest (Acts 19:11 – 20).

10. This church grew, flourished and became strong. It lasted long enough to be mentioned in the Book of Revelation (Rev. 2:1 – 7).

 

C ) THE CORINTHIAN CHURCH PROBLEM

1. In the case of the Corinthian church, for mysterious reasons, Paul appeared not to have employed his well - known spiritual warfare strategies in founding the church at Corinth.

2. Paul spent about 18 months ministering in this large cosmopolitan city of Corinth.

3. The effort yielded instant success as the church rapidly filled up with very rich people and wealthy politicians.

 

D) THE SOCIO - ECONOMIC LIFE OF CORINTH.

1. Corinth was a wealthy commercial centre located in Northern Greece.

2. Corinth had two harbors, being a seaport.

3. The wealth of Corinth was acquired through sea-trade.

4. Corinth was popular for its cosmopolitan culture and luxurious temples.

5. The most prominent of these temples were the temples dedicated Apollos and Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty.

6. The Aphrodite temple was serviced by about 1,000 slave girls who doubled as prostitutes and entertainers for the city's night life.

7. The moral depravity of Corinth was legendary in that ancient pagan world. The city was popularly known as a sea man's paradise and a moral cesspool.

8. Almost round - clock women of easy virtue roamed the streets and the atmosphere was polluted with the alluring aura of sin.

 

E ) PAUL'S TACTICAL ‘SPIRITUAL BLUNDER’ AT CORINTH.

1. Without dealing with the spiritual foundations of the city, shutting down the evil altars and Satan’s temples that dotted the city; and with no recorded warfare effort against the city’s marine powers, Paul planted a church at Corinth.

2. Being a new phenomenon with the supernatural in manifestation thousands flocked to the Church and it became an instant 'success ' (1 Corinthians 1 : 1 – 8).

3. The great apostle mistook instant (apparent) success for real success (1 Corinthians 1:1-8).

4. The Corinthian Church now filled with very wealthy people, hundreds of former prostitutes, formerly rough and wild mannered (sailors), politicians and highly placed people, became a very rich and resourceful church.

5. The gifts of the spirit manifested copiously in the church, and all appeared to be going on well, until the ancient foundations began to manifest, trouble and afflict the church. In various ways, the prevailing spirits of the city were imported into the church.

 

F). SOME RECORDED FOUNDATION INDUCED PROBLEMS OF THE CORINTHIAN CHURCH .

(Territorial habits and behaviors that resurrected in the church )

1. She was a church full of division and disunity (1 Corinthians 3:1-10;21-23; 4:6).

2. The Corinthian church was filled with many morally depraved people. Sexual perversion was very rife within this church (1 Corinthians 5:1-13; 6:15-20.

3. It was a church were members had no qualms in eating food that had been offered to idols (1 Corinthians 6 : 9 - 14 ; 10 : 14 – 33).

4. The church was filled with women who wore pride, arrogance and worldliness like a garment. They tried to out-compete each other in showing off their latest fashions and hairdos (1 Corinthians 11:1–16).

5. The church was so disorderly, that even at holy communion services people struggled to grap as much communion bread and wine as possible. Some over–ate and even got drunk during communion (1 Corinthians 10 : 17 – 34).

6. The brethren in the church defrauded, cheated each other, and regularly sued each other in pagan courts (1 Corinthians 6 :1–8).

7. Though the church was full of very rich people, and the church was very rich, but at the same time, they were very miserly - not given to liberality or generosity at all. The apostles at the international early church headquarters in Jerusalem had to write and admonish them with two whole Bible chapters, pleading with them to give to the mother church in need in Jerusalem (2 Corinthians 8 & 9).

8. The church also appeared rowdy and disorderly, it was where people prophesied anyhow during worship services (1 Corinthians 14:1–20).

9. It was a church where for the first time , their founder, the beloved Apostle Paul ordered a sexual and morally depraved man to be given over to Satan for bodily affliction (1 Corinthians 5:1–7).

10. The Corinthians church eventually collapsed and died. It never saw Book of Revelation written.

 

CONCLUSION

No spiritual or even physical work can be stronger than its roots and foundations. Foundations determine the stability, durability and the survivability of any person, structure or enterprise.

In the matter of personal or ministerial destiny fulfillment, we need to pay great attention to our human, spiritual, academic, ministerial roots and foundations. The same goes for various domains and terrains where we operate our various ministries. Locations as they say determine our allocation.

 

PRAYER

• Lord, carry out a foundational surgery in my life.

• Fire of God, visit and deliver the place of my work and ministry from every foundation pollution and affliction, in Jesus name.

MAJOR ORIGINS OF LIFE BATTLES

Posted on August 16, 2019 at 10:35 AM Comments comments (0)

MAJOR ORIGINS OF LIFE BATTLES

- By Rev. Moses Aransiola, Ph.D.

 

• Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground; Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward (Job 5:6-7).

• Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids. Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand [of the hunter], and as a bird from the hand of the fowler (Prov. 6:4-5).

It is important to understand the origins of life battles. This understanding will help us in fighting life's battles with precision and effectiveness.

We know by the law of inheritance, children can either inherit property or poverty from their father or from their ancestors. They can also either inherit a life of victory or a life of defeat.

If our parents had defeated all the Goliaths (challenges) that faced them in their time, we might have been spared of some battles we are fighting today. Many of us today are fighting battles our parents passed over to us. It could be marital battle, health battle, financial battle, or moral battle. The battle has lingered in the family because no one has confronted the battle and won it.

We ministered to a lady sometime ago who was battling with breast cancer, an affliction that killed her grandmother and her mother. That is an example of an unfinished inheritance battle. We must all learn to fight yesterday’s and tomorrow’s battles, today.

For instance, Terah, Abraham’s father, whose wife was barren for almost 40 years, did not decisively defeat the spirit of barrenness in his life time (Gen. 11:26-30). This spirit promptly resumed duty in the lives of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (through Rachael). But thankfully, this generational unfinished battle of chronic barrenness ended in Joseph’s time.

Nearly all of us children from my own father never inherited any material thing from our father, he being a poor farmer. But he was a prophet and a profound prayer warrior whose prayer prowess attracted attention from the high and the mighty. He was so proficient in prayer that people sought him from far and near for spiritual help. Today, every one of his children is a prayer warrior. I particularly took after him in prayer, and I also enjoy attention and consultation from the high and the mighty of the society because of my prayer grace. The anointing of effectual prayer is our common inheritance from our father as his children.

Some people inherited material property from their ancestors in addition to satanic afflictions and bondages. Some inherited generational diabetes, some high blood pressure, and some, a life of indebtedness or drunkenness from their parents.

What is your own inheritance from your parents or ancestors?

Once you observe any particular negative trend or pattern in your family members; in the father, mother, grandfather, grandmother, uncle, aunt, or your siblings; it’s an indication of a transgenerational unfinished and transferred battle.

JERUSALEM AS A TRANSGENERATIONAL BATTLE

• And the king and his men went to Jerusalem unto the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land: which spake unto David, saying, Except thou take away the blind and the lame, thou shalt not come in hither: thinking, David cannot come in hither. Nevertheless David took the strong hold of Zion: the same is the city of David. And David said on that day, Whosoevergetteth up to the gutter, and smiteth the Jebusites, and the lame and the blind, that are hated of David's soul, he shall be chief and captain. Wherefore they said, The blind and the lame shall not come into the house. So David dwelt in the fort, and called it the city of David. And David built round about from Millo and inward. And David went on, and grew great, and the Lord God of hosts was with him (2 Sam 5:6-10).

• As for the Jebusites the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the children of Judah could not drive them out: but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Judah at Jerusalem unto this day (Josh 15:63).

God had promised the land of Canaan by a covenant to Israel. Moses understood this promise and spent all his ministerial years trying to reach Canaan but he never got there. When Joshua took over, he soon discovered that the most difficult part of Canaan to conquer was Jerusalem the land of the Jebusites.

The name Jebus means, 'it shall be trodden down.' The Jebus were the remnant of the Canaanite people who dwelled in the land of Canaan. They were a war-like people. They were fierce fighters and they had a fortress or a stronghold city set on a hill called Jerusalem. Before the time of David, the city Jerusalem had never been ruled or conquered except by a man called Melchizedek (Gen. 14:18; Heb. 7:1-3). The Bible refers to him as the king of Salem. He was without parents and the Bible did not give us his antecedents. After him, no one was recorded to have ruled Jerusalem. Because Jerusalem was a stronghold and a fortress, no army could conquer it for thousands of years.

God's directive was for Israel to eliminate the Jebusites. However, they found Jerusalem a stronghold and a fortress that was difficult for them to conquer despite their efforts. Joshua tried his best but could not conquer the Jebusites. Therefore, Joshua and his people settled down to live with the Jebusites in Jerusalem. This cohabitation continued until the time of David. When David came on the scene and declared his intention to conquer Jerusalem, the Jebusites taunted and mocked him saying, the blind and the lame in the city were enough to stop him. Nevertheless, David would not be deterred. He mobilized his army and routed the Jebusites. He took control of Jerusalem and named it Zion; the city of David.

After it’s conquest, David made Jerusalem the eternal spiritual and political capital of Israel. David inherited a trans-generational Jerusalem battle – from Moses to Joshua and from Joshua to others before him. David terminated that battle in his own time, thereby making life easier for his descendants and the freedom to rule and reign in Jerusalem. As a practical example, Solomon, David’s son, who succeeded him, hardly fought any major battles throughout his over forty years reign. His father made life easy for him (I Kgs. 5:1-5).

You too can stop any family pattern or family - line affliction or limitation in your time and make life easy for generations after you.

GETTING GOD TO ACT IN OUR NATION LET GOD ARISE

GETTING GOD TO ACT IN OUR NATION

“LET GOD ARISE”

 

INTRODUCTION

Every nation or people of destiny under God will have to contend with forces that work in opposition to their God ordained destiny. The enemy seems to have a special dislike for anything birthed by God and nurtured for His glorious purpose. This would appear to be the reason for Moses’ action whenever the Ark of the Covenant set forward to lead God’s people in the wilderness. As the people journeyed with the Ark in front of the procession, Moses’ would shout, “Let God Arise, and His enemies be scattered.” Despite the presence of the Ark, Moses never assumed that God would arise in defense of His people without being invited. This is an important lesson in national praying; God may appear to be asleep or watching with arms folded until His people raise a battle cry for His assistance, help or intervention.

The situation in the nation Nigeria is at a state when it appears as if our God is asleep or uninterested in the deliverance of the nation. It appears as if the nation has been abandoned to the wicked wish and schemes of the evil one. Yet, we know from the example of Moses above that it is the proper time for us as God’s people to raise a battle cry for the deliverance of the nation. Let God arise and let His enemies in Nigeria be scattered!

ANCHOR SCRIPTURES

And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses said, Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee. And when it rested, he said, Return, O LORD, unto the many thousands of Israel (Num 10:35-36).

Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him. As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice. Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name JAH, and rejoice before him. A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation. God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land. O God, when thou wentest forth before thy people, when thou didst march through the wilderness. The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel. Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, whereby thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary (Psalms 68:1-9).

Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah. To him that rideth upon the heavens of heavens, which were of old; lo, he doth send out his voice, and that a mighty voice. Ascribe ye strength unto God: his excellency is over Israel, and his strength is in the clouds. O God, thou art terrible out of thy holy places: the God of Israel is he that giveth strength and power unto his people. Blessed be God (Psalms 68:32-35).

SPECIAL CONFESSIONS AND DECLARATIONS

When God arises:

His enemies are scattered.

The earth trembles

The sea flees

The mountains and the hills quake and skip like little lambs.

Jordan is driven back

The sun and the moon stand still in their habitation

The nations and kingdoms tremble and bow before Him.

The horse and the rider are thrown into the sea

The heavens drop down plentiful rain and the dew

Terror and amazement grips His enemies

Confusion and commotion send the enemy into disarray

Beauty is given for ashes, and the oil of joy for mourning

The earth yields her increase

Prison doors are opened

Chains and shackles are broken

The prisoners and captives are set free

The victim becomes the victor

Death is swallowed up in victory

The conquered becomes the conqueror

Impossibility becomes possible

The irreversible is reversed

The predator (pursuer) himself becomes a prey

The hungry lions become friendly and harmless

The fiery furnace becomes air conditioned fire

Pharaoh and his hosts are drowned in the Red Sea

Streams appear in the desert

The desert places blossom as the rose

Miracle waters gush out of solid rocks

All creation sing His praises

He is victorious in battle.

LET GOD ARISE!

DEBARRED FROM HEAVEN

Posted on August 16, 2019 at 10:30 AM Comments comments (0)

DEBARRED FROM HEAVEN

A message Delivered by Rev. Moses Aransiola, Ph.D at the RCCG Annual Feast of Esther Programme on Thursday March 14th 2019.

PART ONE

INTRODUCTION

The Christian journey to heaven begins from the day he or she experiences the new birth or salvation. The Christian experience begins with the initial experience of salvation, which must be worked out practically with fear and trembling until the day of our final salvation when we see the Lord in glory. In other words, a Christian has been saved, is being saved, and will be saved. This puts a responsibility on every born again child of God to labour in practical Christian living in order to qualify for this ultimate salvation or admittance into heaven.

Sadly, the record of scriptures show that not everyone who started well on the journey of salvation ended well. People like Saul, Judas, and Demas in the Bible probably did not end their journey well with the Lord. They were probably barred from heaven.

At the commencement of their Christian race, every Christian purposes and determines to make it to heaven. However, we have no way of proving that these Christians ended their race in heaven. In fact, the manner and condition in which some Christians ended their journey here on earth does not suggest a heavenly destination.

May the Lord help us to live our lives following in the footsteps of the Master, the Author and Finisher of our faith.

A. Anchor Scriptures: I Cor. 9:24-27; I Cor. 6:9-11; Matt. 7:21-23; Rev. 21:2; Rev. 20:11-15.

B. THE MEANINGS OF DEBAR

1. To debar means: to ban, to bar, to preclude, to eliminate, to exclude, to rule-out, to shut-out, to exempt, and to prevent from…

2. To be debarred from heaven simply means to be shut-out, exempted, banned and prevented from heaven.

C. SALIENT FACTS ABOUT HEAVEN

1. What and where is heaven?

2. Heaven and hell are real. Whereas heaven is a conscious place of eternal rest, comfort and fellowship with God, hell on the other hand is a conscious place of eternal torment and suffering – Lk. 16:20-24.

3. Hell was not originally made for man, but for the devil and his rebellious angels – Matt. 25:41.

4. We go to heaven or hell by choice – I Cor. 9:24-27.

D. FIVE CATEGORIES OF PEOPLE WHO MAY BE DEBARRED FROM HEAVEN.

1. The unrepentant sinner who refused to accept Christ while on earth.

2. The formerly righteous person that hid under the cloak of cheap and misunderstand grace to live in unrighteousness and self-deception - Ezek. 18:24; 1 Cor. 6:9-11.

3 The steward/servant who refused to engage his/her God-given talent, grace and gifting for Kingdom profitability - Matt. 25:14-30.

4 The blessed person who callously shunned or ignore needful social responsibilities – Matt 25:35-46.

5 The one who refused to come to the help of the Lord, as in helping to promote the gospel and supporting or standing for Kingdom causes when required - Judges 5:23.

E. WHY DO BELIEVERS BECOME SUDDENLY LAX IN THE CHRISTIAN LIFE?

1 Faulty spiritual foundations.

2 Deliberate refusal to grow in faith.

3 Weak word and prayer life.

4 Non-involvement in soul- winning and evangelistic activities.

5 Irregular church and fellowship attendance.

6 No heavenly focus, no eternity in view, and no rapture consciousness.

7 Exposure to cheap and permissive grace messages.

8 Undue reliance and dependence on adulterated Bible versions and questionable Greek, Latin and Hebrew interpretation and explanations of scriptures.

9 No or lack of proper apostolic/pastoral cover.

10 Territorial and environmental influences.

F. MY SAFETY OR FINISHING LINE PRINCIPLES.

1. An iron-clad determination to make heaven at all costs.

2. Daily affirmations, resolve and attitude to make heaven.

3. By remaining strong in the Lord and move from glory to glory.

4. Looking unto Jesus daily for grace and mercy to make heaven.

5. Modelling or patterning my life after my apostolic role models, dead and living.

- Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin

- R. W. Schambach

- Evang. Billy Graham

- Lester Sumrall

- Morris Cerullo

- Dr. T. L. Osborne

- Pastor E. A. Adeboye

- Pastor W. F. Kumuyi

6. Having personal moral and relational red-lines that most not be crossed.

7. Inspiration from a minister friend who intentionally placed a curse on himself so as not to fall into adultery.

8. Focus on my reward and inheritance; afraid to forfeit my inheritance like Esau and the prodigal son.

9. Deliberate walk in humility, love and faith.

10. Cultivating and maintaining: “It does not worth it mind-set”. That is weighing the consequences of momentary sinful pleasure in definite and practical terms. Sinful pleasure can result in:

• Loss of sweet communion with the Holy Spirit.

• Loss of peace

• Loss of prayer power and fire

• Loss of unction and anointing

• Loss of spiritual authority

• Loss of prestige and fame

• Loss of personal integrity

• Loss of joy and happiness

• Loss of ministerial grounds and platforms

• Loss of public respect and honour

• Probable loss of health

• Loss of wealth and favours

• Probable loss of physical life

• Probable loss of place in heaven

G. PRAYER FOR GRACE TO MAKE HEAVEN

PRAYER GUIDE:

1. Father, I thank you for the great privilege of knowing Jesus as my personal Lord and Saviour.

2. I thank you my Lord for the earthly privileges you have given me in order to make it to heaven.

3. I thank you Lord for the grace to live above sin and worldliness.

4. I repent Lord of any friendship or compromise I have made with the world already.

5. I repent of the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life, in Jesus name.

6. I repent of any inordinate love for money, status, position, and power.

7. I repent of every secret sin or little foxes that may be lurking in my soul.

8. Father, deliver me from secret evil desires that are preying upon my soul.

9. In whatever way I have brought reproach to the name of Christ: I repent and plead for mercy, in Jesus name.

10. Father, have mercy on me and forgive me, in Jesus name.

PART TWO

MINUTES BEFORE AND MINUTES AFTER DEATH

INTRODUCTION

The dying words of men in their last moments say a lot about how they have lived their lives and the hereafter that awaits them. For those who have lived their lives in Christ, it is the moment of vindication and celebration of their final victory over this present evil world. For those who lived their lives in denial of Christ and in the indulgence of the flesh and its lusts, it is always a moment of regrets, and the shocking realization of their foolishness and their wrong choice of a godless eternity.

• Who can count the dust of Jacob, and the number of the fourth part of Israel? Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his! (Num. 23:10).

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

• And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment (Heb. 9:27).

A. SOME BORDERLINE OR AFTER LIFE EXPERIENCES

1. Evangelist Chidozie

Evangelist Augustine Chidozie is a well-known Nigerian evangelist who died as a sinner and was later restored to life after four days. He recounted his experience of hell fire before he was revived by the mercy of God. He became a Christian after his resurrection and later became an evangelist and soul winner.

2. Stephen, the First Christian Martyr

Stephen the first martyr in the early church had a borderline experience shortly before his martyrdom by stoning. This is what he saw minutes before his death.

When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth. But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord, And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul. And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit (Acts 7:54-59).

As we shall shortly see in this message, dying screaming, yelling and crying was the lot of men/women who in their lifetimes, either denied Christ or chose to live in sinful pleasure without repenting of their sins and accepting Christ as their Lord and Saviour. One may then ask, what really informed their screaming or crying at death? The answer is simple: They were face to face with the stark reality of hell-fire and the vicious evil angels sent to whisk them there.

Pray this death condition determinant prayer very loud and clear with one of your hands placed on your head: “As Jehovah God liveth before whom I stand, I shall not die in the way(s) I came into this world in Jesus mighty name”.

B. SOME FACTS ABOUT LIFE AND THE AFTERLIFE

People may deny, argue, speculate or philosophize about the existence or reality of heaven and hell. But the undeniable truth is that both exist. From the natural stand point, and since all truths are parallel, human governments all through the ages have always designated certain places called prisons or jail houses for the incarceration of convicted and condemned offenders and criminals.

Prisons or jail houses are never meant to be places of comfort and pleasure, but places of isolation, judgment, punishment, torture and death.

It is my view that human rulers got the inspiration for the prison institution from God and the Bible.

Therefore, to erase every doubt about the existence of heaven and hell, Jesus told this fascinating story.

There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented (Lk. 16:19-25).

Facts about Lazarus and the Rich Man

• Lazarus and the rich man were once living as humans on earth

• They both died. Both the rich and poor are leveled by death. Death is common to both. All men are doomed to die one day.

• No man will live forever on earth.

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment (Heb. 9:27).

• They both transited to the afterlife to be judged (Rev. 20:11-15).

• Their position and location in the afterlife differed just as their status and choices on earth differed.

• Lazarus went to paradise, while the rich man transited to hell.

• Hell is a place of torment in fire (Rev. 14:9-11).

• The other entered into eternal regret, damnation and lamentation.

• The rich man didn’t go to hell because of his wealth. He went to hell because he never knew God, acknowledged God, nor served God while He lived. He lived for himself alone. He was not even bothered about the poor man that begged at his gate.

• Lazarus also didn’t go to paradise because of his poverty. He probably knew God, even in his beggarly state.

 

C. SOME SINNERS LAST WORDS: WHAT THEY SAW AND WHAT THEY SAID

These people were not insured by the Saviour’s blood. They said “NO” to the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

1. Caesar Borgia: “While I lived, I provided for everything but death; now I must die, and am unprepared to die.”

2. Thomas Hobbs political philosopher (1588-1679): "I say again, if I had the whole world at my disposal, I would give it to live one day more. I am about to take a leap into the dark."

3. Thomas Payne the leading atheistic writer in American colonies: "Stay with me, for God's sake; I cannot bear to be left alone, O Lord, help me! O God, what have I done to suffer so much? What will become of me hereafter? “I would give worlds if I had them. O Lord, help me! Christ, help me! …No, don't leave; stay with me! Send even a child to stay with me; for I am on the edge of hell here alone. If ever the Devil had an agent, I have been that one.”

4. Sir Thomas Scott (1808-1878), Chancellor of England who wrote over 200 books and booklets to destroy Christianity said: "Until this moment I thought there was neither a God nor a hell. Now I know and feel that there are both, and I am doomed to perdition by the just judgment of the Almighty."

5. Voltaire (1694-1778) the famous anti-Christian atheist: “I am abandoned by God and man; I will give you half of what I am worth if you will give me six months' life.” (He said this to Dr. Fochin, his doctor, who told him it could not be done). Voltaire then said: “Then I shall die and go to hell!” (His nurse said: “For all the money in Europe I wouldn’t want to see another unbeliever die like that! All night long he cried for forgiveness.”

D. SOME SAINTS (SAVED) CHRISTIANS LAST WORDS: WHAT THEY SAW AND SAID.

Glorious is the end and last moments of God’s saints; those who in their lifetimes insured their lives through the blood of the Lamb. This end is what soothsayer Balaam appeared to have prophetically seen that made him to declare in Numbers 23:10 that he desired to die the way the righteous ones die.

 

1. Patriach Jacob (Gen. 49:1-2, 28-23)

Patriach Jacob had such peace and presence of mind and assurance of paradise that enabled him to gather his 12 sons to his death-bed for last minute patriachal and prophetic blessings.

2. Prophet Moses (Deut. 32:48-49, 31:1, 34:1-5).

The prophetic grace upon Prophet Moses was still very active and strong till his very last hours and minutes. As he was literally facing death squarely while he walked towards Mount Nebo, Prophet Moses was totally caught-up with the pouring of very profound prophetic blessings upon the different tribes of Israel. He spoke as he saw into the realm of the future of God’s people. His was a glorious end.

3. Apostle Paul (2 Tim. 4:6-8).

4. Augustus Montague Toplady (1710-1778)

He will ever be famous as the author of one of the most evangelical hymns of the eighteenth century, "Rock of Ages," which was first published in 1776.

Near his last, awaking from a near-death sleep, he said: "Oh, what delights! Who can fathom the joy of the third heaven? The sky is clear, there is no cloud; come Lord Jesus, come quickly!"

He died saying: "No mortal man can live after the glories which God has manifested to my soul."

During his final illness, Toplady was greatly supported by the consolations of the gospel as he exclaimed: "The consolations of God, to so unworthy a wretch are so abundant; that he leaves me nothing to pray for but their continuance."

5. Dwight L. Moody (1837 – 1899)

“Dwight L Moody awoke from sleep shortly before he breathed his last and said;

“Earth recedes. Heaven opens before me. If this is death, it is sweet! There is no valley here. God is calling me, and I must go.” And Moody’s son said, “No, no, Father, “You’re dreaming.” And Moody replied, “I am not dreaming. I have been within the gates. This is my triumph; this is my coronation day! It is glorious!”

6. John Bunyan (1628 – 1688)

Author of the famous Christian book, “Pilgrim’s Progress” said at his death: “Weep not for me, but for yourselves. The Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who, through the mediation of His blessed Son, receives me, though a sinner. We shall meet to sing the new song, and remain everlastingly happy.”

7. David Brainerd (1718 – 1747).

Some of Brainerd’s last words were: “I am going into eternity; and it is sweet to me to think of eternity; the endlessness of it makes it sweet. But oh! What shall I say of the future of the wicked! The thought is too dreadful!”

8. A Deaconess in USA:

A few years ago, a sister and a former deaconess of our church (Gethsemane Chapel of Life), in her dying minutes in a hospital room in America asked for her pastor husband, their church’s zonal pastor, and some Christian leaders of their church to come and stand by her bed side. Then she raised a chorus: “For this God is my God, forever and ever; He will be my guide, from now, even unto the end…” while they all sang, she ‘flew’ away in that song… A GLORIOUS END INDEED!

THE ENEMY MUST SUBMIT

(60 Violent Prayers To Force the Enemies Into Total Submission)

 

INTRODUCTION

In view of the strange and mysterious manifestations of evils that cannot be easily identified, the events and happenings in the world whose causes cannot be determined through rational reasoning, we are compelled to believe a deliberate enemy is at work. When, against all human efforts and inputs, we fail to get success; when, instead of going forward, we are moving backwards; when some people who do not even merit success, progress in anyway (and have done nothing to merit it), are still excelling; when we come to battles and men who should be the winners fall; then there must be an enemy of destiny at work.

Evil is ever present everywhere in the world and according to one author, “Satan is Well and Alive”. Therefore, to say that there is no adversary or enemy sounds foolish. On the one hand, Satan the strongman is active on the planet earth doing his works in the life of the ignorant, the sinful and the spiritually weak.

 

AN ENEMY HAS DONE THIS

Now, the presence of evil tells us that an enemy is in operation. Most times we are tempted to look for the reason why evil is perpetrated in world and in our lives when we become helpless.

Jesus said in Matthew 13:24-30:

“The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy, adversary or opposer, came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went away. But when the blade shot up, and produced fruits, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the husbandman came unto him and said, “Sir, did we not plant wheat only in thy field, and from where did these tares come.” The he said, “An enemy has done this.” The servants said unto him: wilt then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay, lest while you gather up the tares, you will certainly uproot the wheat with them, Let them both grow together until the harvest and I would say to the reapers, “gather you together first the tares and bind them in boundless to be burnt, but gather the wheat into my barn.”

 

When you have looked for every natural possible reason for evil and you cannot substantiate it, then know that it is possible an enemy has done it.

Why do men sleep at night? Men sleep because they need rest. At such a time men are generally not watchful or vigilant. They have to rest and the enemy finds that time the best window for him to operate.

The enemy works at night when there is darkness, when men are not alert to see, to know or perceive it.

The presence of evil in the world and the influence of evil in the lives of men is real. Evil is anything that goes against joy, peace, progress, good health, and all that pertains to life and godliness. If somebody is ill, you can say it is evil because illness is bad. There is evil in the government and in the family and at workplaces. Enemy sponsored evil all-round.

If when a Christian man or woman commits sin, he/she tries and wishes internally to avoid it but all is in vain, he keeps falling herself and rolling on the ground, but he/she comes back to find himself/herself still doing the same thing, then he says, “Why am I so wretched that I do not have power over myself to do that which I choose?” It is because evil is present with imposing force. Sometimes a man labours, putting in everything necessary for success, but every time he is visited with poverty, failure, disappointment and trials. What is the reason for this? An enemy at work. Yes, when Apostle Paul found himself in similar frustration, he cried, “Oh wretched man that I am: evil is stronger that I, evil is greater than I who shall deliver me from this wicked power of evil?” He knew he needed help to overcome the enemy.

There is a brain behind this network of evil in the world and that brain is nobody but the enemy. All these evils cannot just be by chance or coincidence. No! The truth is that there is an adversary who opposes, fights, afflicts and accuses us and the reality of his personality is Satan. He is properly named an adversary of all that is called good. He is Satan, for Satan means an adversary. He is the devil; the worker of evil, and anybody who joins him in his diabolical business qualifies to be called Satan. And the Bible has enjoined us to stand strong in faith and in fervent prayers to contend with the evil strongman or strongmen, and recover our goods.

The choice prayers in this booklet will help you to identify and properly deal with the enemy till he/she/it submits and let you access your inheritance and abundance.

 

WHO OR WHAT IS AN ENEMY?

An enemy is defined as an antagonist, an adversary, a foe, an opponent, someone or something that is determined to hurt or frustrate you.

A WICKED FATHER AS AN ENEMY

A friend of mine shared this heart breaking story.

He said, a family of six comprising the mother, two men and three women were recommended to his ministry for prayers and deliverance. He claimed it was pathetic story as the five children were insane. It was revealed during counseling that their father who was supposed to suffer the sickness 'willed' it to his children because he wanted to be king.

Usually in a particular town in the western part of Nigeria, when a crowned prince is about to be coronated as the new king as a tradition, the men of the town had to consult their oracle to know the future of the king and well-being of the town. It was in this search that the men got knowledge that few years after the crowned prince ascends the throne, he would be struck with insanity. After much consultation, the crowned prince thought it convenient to divert it to his children. Thus, an agreement was reached through a covenant and the sickness was diverted from him which subsequently manifested in the children after their father's death. But thanks be to God, after prayers, they were restored.

The Bible has rightly declared in Micah 7:6b that a man's enemies are the men of his own house. How true!

 

HELP SCRIPTURES: Psa. 68:30; Prov. 14:19; Psa. 18:43-45; Exo. 15:12-16; Psa. 97:3; Isa. 30:30; Jam. 4:7.

TRANSGENERATIONAL FAMILY BATTLES MUST EXPIRE IN MY TIME

Posted on October 12, 2018 at 8:05 AM Comments comments (1)


TRANSGENERATIONAL FAMILY BATTLES MUST EXPIRE IN MY TIME

- By Rev. Moses Aransiola, Ph.D.

 

• Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground; Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward (Job 5:6-7).

• Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids. Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand [of the hunter], and as a bird from the hand of the fowler (Prov. 6:4-5).

It is important to understand the origins of life battles. This understanding will help us in fighting life's battles with precision and effectiveness.

We know by the law of inheritance, children can either inherit property or poverty from their father or from their ancestors. They can also either inherit a life of victory or a life of defeat.

If our parents had defeated all the Goliaths (challenges) that faced them in their time, we might have been spared of some battles we are fighting today. Many of us today are fighting battles our parents passed over to us. It could be marital battle, health battle, financial battle, or moral battle. The battle has lingered in the family because no one has confronted the battle and won it.

We ministered to a lady sometime ago who was battling with breast cancer, an affliction that killed her grandmother and her mother. That is an example of an unfinished inheritance battle. We must all learn to fight yesterday’s and tomorrow’s battles, today.

For instance, Terah, Abraham’s father, whose wife was barren for almost 40 years, did not decisively defeat the spirit of barrenness in his life time (Gen. 11:26-30). This spirit promptly resumed duty in the lives of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (through Rachael). But thankfully, this generational unfinished battle of chronic barrenness ended in Joseph’s time.

Nearly all of us children from my own father never inherited any material thing from our father, he being a poor farmer. But he was a prophet and a profound prayer warrior whose prayer prowess attracted attention from the high and the mighty. He was so proficient in prayer that people sought him from far and near for spiritual help. Today, every one of his children is a prayer warrior. I particularly took after him in prayer, and I also enjoy attention and consultation from the high and the mighty of the society because of my prayer grace. The anointing of effectual prayer is our common inheritance from our father as his children.

Some people inherited material property from their ancestors in addition to satanic afflictions and bondages. Some inherited generational diabetes, some high blood pressure, and some, a life of indebtedness or drunkenness from their parents.

What is your own inheritance from your parents or ancestors?

Once you observe any particular negative trend or pattern in your family members; in the father, mother, grandfather, grandmother, uncle, aunt, or your siblings; it’s an indication of a transgenerational unfinished and transferred battle.

JERUSALEM AS A TRANSGENERATIONAL BATTLE

• And the king and his men went to Jerusalem unto the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land: which spake unto David, saying, Except thou take away the blind and the lame, thou shalt not come in hither: thinking, David cannot come in hither. Nevertheless David took the strong hold of Zion: the same is the city of David. And David said on that day, Whosoevergetteth up to the gutter, and smiteth the Jebusites, and the lame and the blind, that are hated of David's soul, he shall be chief and captain. Wherefore they said, The blind and the lame shall not come into the house. So David dwelt in the fort, and called it the city of David. And David built round about from Millo and inward. And David went on, and grew great, and the Lord God of hosts was with him (2 Sam 5:6-10).

• As for the Jebusites the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the children of Judah could not drive them out: but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Judah at Jerusalem unto this day (Josh 15:63).

God had promised the land of Canaan by a covenant to Israel. Moses understood this promise and spent all his ministerial years trying to reach Canaan but he never got there. When Joshua took over, he soon discovered that the most difficult part of Canaan to conquer was Jerusalem the land of the Jebusites.

The name Jebus means, 'it shall be trodden down.' The Jebus were the remnant of the Canaanite people who dwelled in the land of Canaan. They were a war-like people. They were fierce fighters and they had a fortress or a stronghold city set on a hill called Jerusalem. Before the time of David, the city Jerusalem had never been ruled or conquered except by a man called Melchizedek (Gen. 14:18; Heb. 7:1-3). The Bible refers to him as the king of Salem. He was without parents and the Bible did not give us his antecedents. After him, no one was recorded to have ruled Jerusalem. Because Jerusalem was a stronghold and a fortress, no army could conquer it for thousands of years.

God's directive was for Israel to eliminate the Jebusites. However, they found Jerusalem a stronghold and a fortress that was difficult for them to conquer despite their efforts. Joshua tried his best but could not conquer the Jebusites. Therefore, Joshua and his people settled down to live with the Jebusites in Jerusalem. This cohabitation continued until the time of David. When David came on the scene and declared his intention to conquer Jerusalem, the Jebusites taunted and mocked him saying, the blind and the lame in the city were enough to stop him. Nevertheless, David would not be deterred. He mobilized his army and routed the Jebusites. He took control of Jerusalem and named it Zion; the city of David.

After it’s conquest, David made Jerusalem the eternal spiritual and political capital of Israel. David inherited a trans-generational Jerusalem battle – from Moses to Joshua and from Joshua to others before him. David terminated that battle in his own time, thereby making life easier for his descendants and the freedom to rule and reign in Jerusalem. As a practical example, Solomon, David’s son, who succeeded him, hardly fought any major battles throughout his over forty years reign. His father made life easy for him (I Kgs. 5:1-5).

You too can stop any family pattern or family - line affliction or limitation in your time and make life easy for generations after you.

PRAYER FOR ACADEMIC SUCCESS

INTRODUCTION

Educating the mind is a major key to living a society relevant and successful life. Therefore, every individual is expected to obtain a reasonable level of formal education. For some people, studying to doctorate degree level may be what they need to fulfill their destiny. This means that academic success is imperative for every individual.

Just like every good thing in life, obtaining the needed academic qualification can be challenging, especially for those who are financially disadvantaged. For other people, they have to contend with a foundational or family pattern of illiteracy and truncated academic career (dropping out of school).

With determination and prayer, we can overcome these hindrances and become the academic success God wants us to become. Daniel and his friends in Babylon outclassed the pagans in academic knowledge and wisdom. The Bible says that by the help of God, these Hebrew boys were ten times better in academic performance. God can still do it today for any Christian student who is willing to pay the price of diligent academic study and fervent prayer.

SCRIPTURE MEDITATION:

• As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams. Now at the end of the days that the king had said he should bring them in, then the prince of the eunuchs brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar. And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they before the king. And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm (Dan. 1:17-20)

• Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm (Dan. 6:3).

PRAYER GUIDE:

1. Father, I thank you because you did not create me a dullard.

2. Lord, I believe and know that your Holy Spirit in me is an excellent spirit.

3. Father, I believe that I have the excellent mind of Christ available to me at all times.

4. Therefore, I repent of my failure to take full advantage of this divine facility of grace.

5. Lord, I repent of my past academic failures and woeful performance in examinations.

6. Henceforth, I renounce and reject you foul spirit of academic failure, in Jesus name.

7. Henceforth, my academic grades shall no longer be an embarrassment to the name Christ.

8. I command the spirits of memory failure and porous brain to get out of my life right now, in Jesus name.

9. I command my brain to be purged and cleansed from all demonic contaminations by the blood of Jesus.

10. I command my brain to assimilate everything I am taught and everything I read, in Jesus name.

11. I also command my brain to recall and record correctly everything it has assimilated, in Jesus name.

12. I command the spell of academic failure assigned to my brain to be destroyed now, in Jesus name.

13. By the blood of Jesus, I resist and destroy the witchcraft of memory blanking out and mental paralysis.

14. I command the spirit of impossibility assigned to my academic career to break its hold and depart from me now, in Jesus name.

15. By the blood of Jesus, I destroy the impossibility power assigned to any of my subjects or courses, in Jesus name.

16. In the Mighty Name of Jesus, I destroy the power of family pattern failure in any subject (e.g. Mathematics).

17. I command the generational yoke of academic embargo to be lifted away now, in Jesus Mighty Name.

18. You arrow of academic shame and disgrace, I command you to backfire, in Jesus name.

19. I receive grace now for diligent and fruitful academic studies, in Jesus name.

20. You foul spirit of slumber that makes me to sleep when reading my books, I command you to get out of my life now, in Jesus name.

21. Father, lay your hands of fire and deliverance upon my brain now, in Jesus name.

22. You demonic power assigned to follow me into the examination room, I bind you and cast you out of my life now, in Jesus name.

23. Father, assign your angels of examination success to minister to me before and during my examination, in Jesus name.

24. Father, let your success angels prepare and equip me to succeed with flying colours in my forthcoming examination.

25. I decree that the examiners that will mark my scripts shall be divinely compelled to favour me, in Jesus name.

26. Father, help me to find favour with the examination board and with those who will seat to decide my success, in Jesus name.

27. By the blood of Jesus, I reject and divorce myself from the spirit of average performance.

28. I receive power to score distinctions in all my examinations, in Jesus name.

29. Let the excellent Spirit of Christ possess me from now, in Jesus name.

30. I thank you my Lord for examination success and victory, in Jesus name.

PRAYER AGAINST ANTI-MARRIAGE FORCES

 

INTRODUCTION

God’s will is that we be happily married and stay so until death. But it takes the favour of God to get a good spouse; and it takes His ever-present help to sustain a marriage in love, peace and joy. God instituted marriage and wants His children to enjoy its benefits and use the home to advance His kingdom. Two are better than one, for they have a good reward for their labour.

SCRIPTURE MEDITATION

• Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock (Matt. 7:24-25).

• Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge (Heb. 13:4).

• And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder (Matt. 19:5-6).

FAITH CONFESSION

• I declare that Christ is the head of my home.

• God has joined me together with my spouse; no man shall succeed in putting us asunder.

• The Bible says we are no longer two but one. Therefore, I stand together with my spouse to disgrace any power opposing our marriage, in Jesus name.

PRAISE AND WORSHIP

There is power mighty in the blood (2ce)

There is power mighty in the blood of Jesus Christ

There is power mighty in the blood

PRAYER GUIDE

7. I petition against any marriage contracts with any human spirits, dead human spirits, demons and any spiritual husbands or wives. I sever the soul ties and declare a divorce in the spirit.

9. I petition against the Ancient Serpent, bewitchment, spirits of deception and seduction. I cancel any orders given to them with regard to my marriage and declare them null and void in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

PRAYER FOR HEALING AND HEALTH

 

INTRODUCTION

Man can be sick in many respects. He can be sick physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Medical science may be helpful in administering treatment to sick patients, but its limitation becomes obvious when the illness is demonic or spiritual in nature. For Christians, comprehensive healing is part of the redemptive provisions of the Cross. Where medical science fails, the power of God through the victory of the Cross does not fail. However, we must appropriate this victory through faith and aggressive praying.

 

SCRIPTURE MEDITATION

 

• He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions (Psa. 107:20-21).

 

• 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 (Exo. 15:26).

 

• Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed (Isa. 53:4-5).

 

• Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed (1 Pet. 2:24).

 

FAITH CONFESSIONS

• I confess that Christ has taken all my sicknesses and diseases and nailed them to the cross.

• Therefore, sicknesses and diseases should not have power over me.

• The spirit that raised Christ from the dead dwells in me and shall quicken my mortal body.

• Jehovah Rapha is my physician. Right now, I claim my healing in Jesus name.

• You spiritual tree, plant or seed of sickness and infirmity, you have not been planted by my God; therefore, I demand and command that you be uprooted from my body right now, in Jesus name.

PRAISE AND WORSHIP

I plead the blood, the blood of Jesus (2ce)

I pleeeead the blooooood, the blood of Jesus

 

Prayer Strategies

• If possible go on about 1-3 days fasting. This is not compulsory, especially if fasting can further endanger your health. But you can still skip some meals in order to keep your spirit fervent for praying.

• Realize that you cannot receive healing without faith in God’s ability and willingness to heal you. (Matt. 8:1-4). After this prayer, take some practical step of faith to demonstrate that God has answered your prayers, and that the devil has been defeated in your life. Now begin some things you could not do before the prayer time.

 

PRAYER GUIDE:

1. Father, I come boldly to the throne of grace and mercy to receive healing. I know that Your word is the final authority and as silver is tried in the furnace of fire, purified seven times, so is Your Word. I know also that You watch over your word to perform it because You do not lie or change.

2. I believe that Jesus died for my sins and sickness on the Cross of Calvary and was wounded for my transgressions and bruised for my iniquity.

3. The chastisement of my peace was upon Him; with His stripes I was healed. I believe He was raised from the dead for my justification and redemption. Therefore, I confess that by His stripes I am healed now from all sicknesses and infirmities.

4. I’m redeemed from all covenants and curses – ancestral, paternal and maternal. I disallow the devil and his agents from operating in my body because my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit.

5. Every organ, every tissue and every cell of my body now begins to function in the perfection in which God created them to function in Jesus name.

6. Father, You are Jehovah-Rapha – the Lord that heals me. I accept You as my healer and I confess according to Your Word that the son of righteousness arises with healing in His wings upon me because I fear your name.

7. I go from strength to strength; my light breaks forth as the morning and my health springs forth speedily. I am valid and not an invalid in Jesus name.

8. Since the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in me, I confess that He who raised up Jesus from the dead quickens, makes alive, energies, services and overhauls my mortal body.

9. I denounce and renounce every covenant, oath, pact and agreement of sickness formed consciously or unconsciously whether by me or on my behalf, in Jesus name.

10. By the firepower of the Holy Ghost, I withdraw my name, emblem and destroy any object representing me at any altar of affliction by my command and I decree a total destruction of such altar in Jesus name.

11. Satan, according to Matthew 18:18, I bind you and your cohorts from operating in my body right now in Jesus name. Spirit of infirmity get out of my body right now in Jesus’ mighty name.

12. I’m the property of God, because I was bought with a price and redeemed not with perishable seed but with the seed incorruptible; even by the Word of God and with precious and sinless blood of Christ. Therefore, I forbid any sickness, disease or infirmity from operating in my body.

13. I loose myself from any spell, hex, jinx, curse, witchcraft and bewitchment directed against my head area, chest area, stomach area, reproductive organs, hands and legs, in Jesus mighty name.

14. Thou fire of God, visit my anatomy, physiology and endocrine system right now.

15. Let every germ, virus, bacteria and poison working against my health be neutralized by God’s fire in Jesus name.

16. I fire back the arrow of infirmity and death to the senders in Jesus mighty name.

17. Father, Lord, perform a surgical operation and creative miracle in every area of my body requiring such, in Jesus name.

18. Father, thank You for Your Word will not return to You empty; but it is working, fulfilling and accomplishing its purpose in my body now, renewing its purpose in my body now, renewing, restoring, revitalizing my health.

19. I thank You, precious Jesus, for Your healing virtue flowing through my tissue, organs, cell, muscles and tendons right now.

20. Let the healing fire of the Holy Spirit sweep through my entire being right now.

21. I declare according to Isaiah 40:24 that you evil seed of infirmity shall not be planted; yea you shall not be sown; yea your stock shall not take root in my life; god shall blow upon you, you shall wither and the whirlwind shall take you away as stubble, in Jesus name.

22. I refuse to be a vegetable or bedridden in life in Jesus name.

23. I reject all medical diagnosis, prognosis, and medical prophecies that say some sickness are incurable. That is not my portion in Jesus. In Christ Jesus, I triumph over the situation to the glory of God the father.

24. I say, proclaim and affirm loud and clear, I shall not die or become permanently bedridden, but live to declare the glory of God in the land of the living, in Jesus name.

25. This sickness is not unto death but God shall be glorified by my healing. Therefore, you spirit of death and grave, away with you in Jesus’ mighty name.

26. I thank You, Father for making me whole and sound in health. I receive my healing now in Jesus’ name.

27. I confess that from this moment onwards I go from healing to health, strength to strength and from glory to glory.

SPECIAL PRAYERS FOR VICTORIOUS PREGNANCY AND CHILD-BIRTH

INTRODUCTION

It is the creational right of every human to be biologically fruitful or productive. The Bible forbids barrenness and miscarriage for God’s covenant people. This means that no Christian is expected to have difficulty with conception and child delivery.

The biblical Hebrew women were strong during pregnancy and vigorous at child delivery. They were not known for prolonged labour or child loss at delivery. It is abnormal for a daughter of Abraham to suffer the same childbirth afflictions as the Egyptians.

• And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them (Exo.1:19).

• Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle (Deut.7:14).

• There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil (Exo.23:26).

Despite these clear Bible prohibitions or provisions for God’s people, some Christians still battle with conception, miscarriage, and stillbirth problems. Some find it difficult to conceive, and some who conceive are harassed by miscarriage demons. Still, those who manage to carry their pregnancies to term are sometimes attacked by spirits of stillbirth and profitless conception.

Most of these negative prenatal experiences are demonic, and therefore beyond the scope of what medical science can solve. Such afflictions that defy medical treatment are often spiritual in origin, and must be attacked and overpowered spiritually.

The following prayer directions should guide us into praying effectively for victory over common and peculiar childbearing challenges.

SCRIPTURES TO STAND UPON

I Tim. 2:15; Phil. 1:6; Isa. 8:18, 40:5, 43:1-4; Exo. 1:19; Psa. 125:3, 91:1-10

 

PRAYER STRATEGIES

• Anoint your belly periodically with consecrated anointing oil.

• Pray and sing praises for at least one hour daily.

• Cancel and reject all negative dreams and negative medical reports - (Isa. 7:7)

• Rebuke and bind the spirits of fear and anxiety.

• Meditate on the Word of God regularly.

• Do personal night vigils.

• Participate regularly in Holy Communion service.

• Avoid quarrels and fights with anybody during the period.

• Let your heart and mouth be full of praise songs all the time.

• Lay your right hand on your womb or pregnancy as you vocally pray the following prayers.

CONFESSION OF FAITH AND PRAYERS

1. Lord, I thank You for the gift of a new life You have planted inside of me.

2. Father, I also thank and praise You for the priviledge of getting married and getting pregnant.

3. In Jesus name, father, I present this baby to You now for Your special blessings.

4. Oh baby inside of me, hear ye the word of the Lord; you are from today sanctified, anointed, protected and empowered in the name of God the Father, God the Son, and God, the Holy Spirit.

5. All is well with me and my baby inside in the name of the Lord Jesus. I rejoice in the Lord again and again for this marvellous work of creation He has done in my body.

6. My baby, I trust the Lord who has put you here is watching over you; He is taking care of you. The devil knows nothing about how you were wonderfully knit together in the womb. So the devil will have no right to touch you. No witch has any right over you.

7. I declare, the blood of my Lord Jesus Christ will mix with my blood to make everything in the body perfect.

8. I prophesy, my blood is perfectly healthy in the name of Jesus. Any impurity in my blood is flushed out in the name of the Lord Jesus. Any destructive living organism in my blood is destroyed now in the name of the Lord Jesus. Every blood cell that is being destroyed by the destroying bacteria and virus: come alive and be multiplied. My blood is under supernatural formation and purification.

9. The physiology, anatomy and biochemistry of my body at the moment will be for a perfect development of my baby in the name of Jesus.

10. Anything that is wrong anywhere will be normalized now in the name of the Lord Jesus.

11. I refuse any weakness. I receive the strength of the Lord throughout this pregnancy period.

12. All the diseases that accompany pregnancy are not my portion. My portion is sound health. In the morning today I am well. Tonight, I am sound in health. At midnight I will sleep soundly.

13. No devil can harass me. No witch can terrify me. Though I ampregnant; I am still a terror to witches. I am still a tormentor to household and neighbourhood enemies. I am still more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus.

14. Those who imagine I am now helpless will meet their surprises. The Lord is with me like a mighty and terrible one. Because He has put His miracle in my womb Himself, therefore, He is watching over it to keep and preserve it.

15. Any enemy who comes against me one time will flee in terror seven times in the name of Jesus. I bind the spirits of baby exchangers in the name of Jesus. God is the one that planted this baby in my womb. He shall remain there and grow normally and be delivered normally.

16. The blood of Jesus will speak against enemies. The name of Jesus is my banner. The hosts of heaven will defend me.

SPECIAL PRAYERS FOR BUSINESSMEN AND BUSINESSES

INTRODUCTION

But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day (Deut 8:18).

Here, from this scripture, it is clear that there is a special “power to get wealth.” Unbelievers know that this is true. But they do not come to God for such power. This is because God demands they must leave their sins and wickedness first. They opt for the devil’s power to boost their business, to get contracts, promotion, favour, etc. But whatever a man gets through demonic spirits will be paid fully for later on in this life or in hell fire.

God gives power to get wealth, and you can avail yourself of this power now. It is only “the blessing of the Lord (that) maketh rich and addeth no sorrow to it”.

Israel received the power to get wealth because their fathers and grandfathers were in a holy covenant of wealth with God Almighty.

The devil might have given your grandfathers wealth through a covenant with some undeclared terms of making their descendants poor. Our fathers may even have entered a covenant of poverty in order to get power to cure ailments or power to divination. You must break such power and enter into God’s covenant of wealth.

SPECIALIZED PRAYERS FOR MARITAL BREAKTHROUGH

 

INTRODUCTION

God instituted the married life or marriage and by extension, the family to a platform or an avenue of care, comfort, people, strength, grace, power and a divine “production factor” for godly seed (children).

God designed marriage to meet specific needs in human lives. Marriage is the biblical cure for loneliness, sexual immorality, and singleness. The marriage institution is also God’s platform for procreation and family life. There is a certain age in the life of an individual when marriage becomes inevitable for a balanced and God honouring life. Therefore, being married at the right time and to the right person can be a major breakthrough for an individual. It can be the difference between a life of fulfilment and that of frustration or shame.

Many people suffer delay or disappointment in marriage for many reasons. Some who are married suffer constant marital distress or frustration. When some expectations in marriage are not satisfied, divorce or separation can become the eventual result.

Many relationships never make it to the point of marriage proposal. There are many failed marriage promises and failed courtships. There are many successful weddings but few successful marriages. These negative trends in many societies have made some to even decide to avoid the pain of marital failure by refusing to get married in the first place.

Yet marriage can be blissful, empowering, and comforting. But it depends on how we approach it and the price we are willing to pay to make it work. As we follow the biblical principles for a successful relationship and marriage, we are sure to find joy and fulfilment. The Bible says, “Marriage is honourable” (Heb. 13:4). This is God’s desire for everyone. God wants us to find honour and respect in marriage.He wants us to enjoy the honour of marriage.

On the other hand, the devil is out to ruin every promising relationship, courtship, or marriage. He is the architect of many failed relationships and marriages. This means that we must guard our relationship, courtship, or marriage in prayer. We must pray the devil and his evil forces out of our marital plans and destiny. We must wage war against marriage destroyers and rejection forces. We must also pray our God ordained spouse into our life. Finally, we must destroy the power of disappointment and divorce demons in prayer.

SCRIPTURES TO STAND UPON

Gal. 3:13, 14:1; I Tim. 4:18; Isa. 53:18, 54:17; Rev. 12:11; Num. 23:23; I Sam. 12:10; Col. 2:14, 15:1-13, 14.

 

PRAYER STRATEGIES

• Go to a lonely place or lock up yourself for some days of personal retreat.

• Ask your parents some critical questions about your conception, birth, naming ceremony rites, youth and dedications.

• Ask the Holy Spirit for more light on your life – on things your parents too may not know about.

• If you can pray in tongues, then use it as much as you pray these prayers.

• Be violent with the devil.

• Accompany the prayer with 1-3 days of fasting and night vigils.

 

CONFESSION OF FAITH

• Lord I thank You because Your Word already says, it is not good that man or woman should be alone. I know it is Your purpose that I should be married. I ask today that You consider my situation at the moment – my aloneness – and provide for me my marriage partner.

• I want to live for You – to serve and obey You – all my life. Give me a partner who will help be my help mate to serve You.
