MAJOR ORIGINS OF LIFE BATTLES

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.

 

 

SPECIALIZED PRAYERS TO WIN ANY ANCIENT

UNFINISHED BATTLE

The following prayers that God has used to help others will be of value in helping to discharge and disengage you and your seed (children) from all negative generational or present-time inheritances.

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.

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

11. Now, I renounce and reject any moral or spiritual attitude that may cause me to be barred from heaven.

12. I bind and cast out of my life any spirit that may be programming me for hell to fire.

13. I reject and renounce any strange gospel that is intended to damn my soul.

14. I resist every moral pressure intended to compromise my Christian faith, in Jesus name.

15. Father, deliver me from every trap the enemy has arranged to draw my soul into perdition.

16. Lord, please deliver me from the deceitfulness and the delusions of my sins, in Jesus name.

17. Let my Christian conscience and spiritual sensitivity be awakened again, in Jesus name.

18. I command fire to consume any altar raised to rubbish my Christianity, in Jesus name.

19. Anointing and power to make heaven, fall on me now, in Jesus name.

20. Father, empower me by your Spirit to resist and desist from the sinful pleasure that is killing my spiritual life gradually.

21. Father, bring me out of every spiritual and moral stupor in which I find myself.

22. Lord, wake me up from the spiritual sleep of death and eternal damnation, in Jesus name.

23. Father, let the hair of my Samson grow again and help me to recover from my spiritual coma, in Jesus name.

24. Father, by your matchless grace and mercy, make it impossible for me to miss heaven, in Jesus name.

25. I thank you Lord because I know You will keep me by your power unto the day of Christ’s appearance.

 

 

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.

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!

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.

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.

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)

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

19. My baby shall not be aborted. I will not miscarry. I don't care whatever dream the devil has ever brought to intimidate me. I don't care about whatever threats to my pregnancy. It shall not stand; neither shall it come to pass. I regard them as fantasies of demons. They will not come to pass in the name of Jesus. Whatever abnormal bleeding I experienced in the past. I will see it no more. Even on the day of my delivery my bleeding shall be normal in the name of Jesus Christ.

20. I smash to pieces all the monitoring equipment being used by the enemy to see my baby and his/her growth in the name of Jesus. I erase from your demonic computers any information concerning my life, my pregnancy and baby in the name of Jesus Christ. I destroy your eyes completely all you evil eyes monitoring my pregnancy; be blinded now in the name of Jesus. All you demonic monitoring gadgets, I destroy you in the name of Jesus.

21. I do not have to be vomiting because I am pregnant. So I receive normalization of my body chemistry in the name of Jesus. For me none of these sicknesses are necessary to prove that I am pregnant. I reject them all. They belong to the Egyptians, and I refuse to partake in them. Christ has borne my own sicknesses on the cross by His stripesand wounds.

29. God told Jeremiah He had known him and ordained him a prophet even before he was formed in the womb (Jer. 1:5). So was Moses: so was Paul. Now as he is in the womb, he is a child of destiny. Therefore it is impossible for any devil or any enemy anywhere or any sickness to destroy him. God will fulfill His plan in his/her life in Jesus name. God's eyes are on my baby monitoring the systematic growth. I rejoice to know this and I give all honour to His Holy name!

30. The Spirit of Christ is right inside of me (Rom. 8:9, 11). Because He is there, He shall monitor all that is going on in my body to make sure that they are perfect.

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.

ROOTS AND DESTINY

Posted on March 15, 2018 at 8:15 AM Comments comments (2)

ROOTS AND DESTINIES

(Offloading Parental / Generational Excess Baggage)

 

INTRODUCTION

• And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham. For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him (Heb. 7:9-10).

 

• For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches (Rom. 11:16).

 

Every human life or destiny is built upon a foundation, just as every tree is sustained by its roots. To address human problems objectively, it is always necessary to consider the foundation or roots upon which the life of a particular the person is resting. While some foundations or roots can facilitate progress, others can hinder progress the way an excess load upon a fellow can hinder his physical speed or locomotion. Parental or generational excess baggage has been a major cause of limitation or frustration for many destinies. The fruits of our lives are often the manifestations of our roots. Generally, the life of a tree is greatly determined by what is underground. The nourishment, stability, durability, resistance to crisis etc, will depend on what is underground – the ROOTS. You should work out your life. If not, you are preparing for failure, frustration and depression. Old age cannot stand a wasted life. My prayer and desire for you is that your life will be a much better improvement over all your ancestor’s lives.

A. FIVE MAJOR DETERMINANTS OF PROGRESS AND

SUCCESS IN LIFE

 

1. Your pedigree, ancestry or bloodline.

2. Your environment.

3. Your efforts.

4. Your helpers.

5. The level of God's grace and mercy upon your life.

 

B. WHAT IS AN EXCESS BAGGAGE?

We will use typical examples at airports and bus stations:

1. Extra loads carried along on a journey.

2. Loads that are in excess of the allowable weights or limits.

3. Loads you have to pay extra money for.

4. Loads that might be too heavy for you alone to carry.

5. Extra loads that are probably sent through you to be delivered to others. They may not necessarily belong to you.

C. THE GENERATIONAL BARRENNESS IN ABRAHAMIC BLOODLINE

The geneological account of Abraham in the book of Genesis 11:10-30, clearly identifies where the spectacular barrenness in Abraham bloodline began. From this scripture, we can clearly infer that every one of the ancestors of Abraham from Shem to Nahor had their first borns within the bracket of ages 29 to 35. All of them became matrimonially fruitful as soon as they got married. It was at the time of Terah, the father of Abraham and the 9th generation to Abraham that the misfortune of generational barrenness started. Terah finally had Abraham at age seventy (Gen 11:26).

If Terah got married at the average family marriage age of 30 as I imagine, then he clearly had a delay of forty long years. Unfortunately, the name 'Terah' also means 'delay' in Hebrew. So from Terah to Abraham, to Isaac, to Jacob (through Rachael), we observe a pattern of transgeneration barrenness. Abraham seemed to have waited for over 70 years before becoming a father. Isaac had a 40 year delay. Rachael, the beloved wife of Jacob was barren for an unspecified number of years.

Thankfully and mercifully, this trend and evil pattern was broken by Joseph.

Father Terah was therefore the source of the transgenerational excess baggage of barrenness in the Abrahamic bloodline.

D. THE EXAMPLE OF JUDAH'S BLOODLINE (Gen. 38:1-26; 49:8-10)

According to the blessings of Jacob upon the tribe of Judah, the tribe should be the one that other tribes bestow praises upon. It is also the tribe that should bear the scepter of leadership in Israel. This tribe should be in Israel like a lion as king of the jungle. However, the man Judah (the ancestral head) committed a blunder by sleeping with his daughter-in-law (incest). He was in the habit of sleeping with harlots. This made him to easily fall into his daughter-in-law's (Tamar) sexual trap.

This error of Judah became a foundational gate of evil excess baggage for his descendants. David fell into adultery with Bathsheba and even killed her husband to cover up the sin (2Sam. 11:1-5). David and his sons really had serious problems with women. His first son Amnon committed incest. Another son, Absalom committed state sponsored and state supervised adultery. Adonijah died over women issues. Solomon the younger son of David could not control his passion and appetite for women and sexual lust (2Kings 11:1-8). He needed 1000 women to keep him going. His record of polygamy has not been matched by anyone on record. Sexual immorality became an excess baggage in the generation of Judah because of his error. Judah's descendants paid dearly for the excess baggage he handed down to them.

E. EXAMPLE OF THE SINS OF JEROBOAM (1Kings 13:31; 15:34; 16:2, 19, 26, 31; 21:22; 2Kings 15:28; 17:21, 22)

Jeroboam the son of Nebat was a king in Israel that started official idolatry in the northern kingdom of Israel. Jeroboam did not only commit the worst forms of idolatry and paganism in Israel, he also made the people of Israel to sin abominably before the Lord. Jeroboam earned himself the epithet of 'the king that made Israel to sin against God.'

Jeroboam laid a foundation of abominable idolatry on the throne of Israel that lasted about 400 years. Consequently, all 18 other kings that sat on that throne were compelled by his idolatrous foundation to sin against God. Some of them might have had the intention of serving and pleasing the Lord, but they were arrested by the idolatrous excess baggage of the throne. In addition to their own personal weaknesses, the succeeding kings acquired the excess baggage deposited on the throne by Jeroboam. It was a throne that made even good kings to end badly – enmeshed in the bondage of idolatry.

F. DIMENSIONS OF PARENTAL EXCESS BAGGAGE

From observation and experience, it seems that everyone has his or her own peculiar share of life challenges, weaknesses or afflictions. For some people, their peculiar life challenge may be migraine headache, ulcer, eye problem, delay in life, hypertension, resentment, rejection, moral weakness, recurrent losses, etc. However, if problems like cancer, diabetes, sexual immorality, premature death, heart problems, endemic poverty, perpetual struggle, or matrimonial frustration, run in a family, they may constitute excess baggage to a fellow who already has his own share of life's problems. The fellow is compelled by family heredity and inheritance to carry a load that was never meant for him.

G. METHOD OF PARENTAL OR GENERATIONAL EXCESS BAGGAGE TRANSFER

1. Heredity or Genetic Transfer/In the Loins....

Let us attempt to prove this point from the Abrahamic bloodline experience in the scriptures.

The book of Hebrews 7:9-10, make us to understand that Levi, a forth generation offspring of Abraham was in the loins of Abraham when Abraham paid tithes to Melchizedeck. This simply means, the genes that formed Levi was in existence in Abraham when he took the spiritual action of paying tithes. The issue of being in the loins of someone is a serious matter. People find themselves strangely doing what their grand parents did, though they might never have met them. We all need to understand this so as to be able to interpret ourselves. These family or bloodline traits, if they are negative, must be decisively dealt with, because left on their own, they will continue from generation to generation. People can also be affected through the avenue of marriage because the two married persons are now one flesh. When you marry, you have married the history of your partner. It matters who your partner’s parents and grandparents were.

One final illustration from the Abrahamic family line will still throw more light on this issue of heredity or genetic transfer.

In Genesis 12: 10-20, we find Abraham telling lies to Egyptians that Sarah was not his wife. About 40 years later, Isaac, his son told a similar lie to king Abimelech in Genesis 26: 6-11. Then 60 years later, Rebecca, Jacob's mother, and her son Jacob, deceived Isaac in Genesis 27.

One hundred years later, Laban, the brother of Rebecca and uncle of Jacob, deceived Jacob (Gen 29:15-27).

To further express the transfer of the obvious oil of transgeneration lying and deception in the family line, 120 years later, Jacob's 10 sons deceived him about Joseph, their brother (Gen. 37:26-35).

Finally, many, many years later, Judas, from the tribe of Judah betrayed Jesus through deception.

I am also personally aware of individuals who have inherited generational problems/afflictions like diabetes, cancer, blindness and heart problems from their parents, without knowing. And this subsequently became additional or excess life luggage they had to deal with and carry in addition to their own peculiar challenges.

2. Parental Sins

Parental sins is a major factor in the transfer of parental excess baggage. When the children repeat or commit the same sins their father/mother committed, their affliction may be automatically transferred to these children.

3. Family Demons or Familiar Spirits

Family demons aid in identifying and marking out family members and subsequently afflicting them with family afflictions, if they are not serious, informed and prayerful Christians.

 

H. DEALING WITH BLOODLINE OR FAMILY PATTERN AFFLICTIONS

We have stated and proved that it is possible to inherit afflictions from bloodline. Such afflictions can be natural diseases like hypertension, diabetes, cancer and others. There can also be afflictions like mental ailments that may pass through family line. When someone has a mental affliction, the ministration to that person must be extended to other members of the family up the line or down the line. Whatever is the cause must be terminated at the family level. In Yoruba land in times past, when a suitor comes to indicate an interest in a lady for marriage, the lady's family would make a research into the family history of the intending husband. They would want to find out if there ever was a family member who was had leprosy or mental affliction. No matter how rich the family may be, if there is a record of such affliction, the marriage would not be allowed. This is because these traditional people know that such afflictions are transferable through the blood line.

If there is a family known to us with two ladies afflicted with mental depression, or only one person is afflicted with such afflictions, it is advisable that deliverance ministration should not be done for only the person that is affected, but for the whole family. The minister should include the next generations in the deliverance and break any cycle that may be involved. It may be a curse.

It has also been observed that families where one member was a witch doctor who specialized in treating mentally deranged people, may also have someone up the line in the family that may be afflicted with mental problem.

In the course of ministering to a woman some years ago, a demon said it came inside her through the mothers blood line and had been passing through the bloodline for about 300 years down the line.

Problems like drunkenness may also be inherited. There is this family whose head was a cursed drunkard. It was as if he was afflicted with drunkenness. He was a fisher man. He would go to the lagoon, bring in plenty of fish, sell and go straight to use all the money to drink local gin - ogogoro. He would be drinking all day till about 11pm, return home drunk, sleep and wake up 5am to go to lagoon again. This was his daily routine till he died. He never achieved anything in life. His one bedroom house collapsed on him. His firstborn son, even though he did not grow up with the father, but grew in a far distant town, lived the same life. His third son, also living away from the father, lived the same life style till he was poisoned through drinks and died. Their last born is also a heavy drinker today. The small house he also built is also collapsing on his head. There is no natural explanation for this problem. It has passed through the bloodline. It wasn't a habit they learnt or developed. They simply found themselves bound with this malady. They never learned this from the father. They simply inherited this lifestyle and find it extremely impossible to break it. Counselling cannot help the family. If this pattern is not broken spiritually in violent warfare prayers, the grandchildren are likely to begin to struggle with the same problem.

WINNING THE UNFINISHED BATTLES

WINNING THE UNFINISHED BATTLES

INTRODUCTION

Life does not always give you what you deserve but what you fight for. Life can be unfair. Consider a lady who had spent her life in sexual immorality with different men and had done several abortions. This same lady suddenly gets born again and is married before long. Not long after the marriage, she gives birth to the first child without any delay or hindrance. On the other hand is another lady who kept herself morally pure and remained a virgin, but could not get a life partner until she reached age 40. After marriage at 40, she had to suffer delay for many years before she could have her first child. Life sometimes is unfair to some people. Life will deliver your allocation to you at your location if only you fight well. Life does not treat everybody equally. Life only gives you what you contend for.

A. FIVE CATEGORIES OF PEOPLE IN LIFE AT ANY TIME

1. Those who have just won a battle.

2. Those who have just lost a battle.

3. Those who are in the midst of a battles.

4. Those who are about to enter into battle.

5. Those who seem to have no battles to fight

B. FOUR MAJOR ORIGINS OF LIFE BATTLES

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).

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

1. Unfinished Battles By Our Parents

If your parents defeated all the Goliaths that faced them, you might have been spared of some battles today. Many of us today are fighting battles our parents passed over to us. It could be marital battle, financial battle, or moral battle. The battle has lingered in the family because no one has confronted the battle and defeated 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 battle.

2. Battles Created By Our Parents

We can also call these transferred battles. If your parents took loans from several sources and died without paying the debts. They leave a battle of indebtedness for you.

3. Self-Induced Battles

These are battles you allowed by exposing yourself unwittingly to the enemy. It could be because of an error in behavior, conduct, or speech.

4. Imposed Battles

The enemy often sponsors such battles because he has seen your ‘star’you’re your potentials. The enemy of your ‘star’ can wage war against you in order to shoot down your ‘star’. King Herod saw the ‘star’ of King Jesus and decided to wage war against the owner of the star.

• Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born (Matt. 2:1-4, 13).

• And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him (Matt. 2: 13).

EXAMPLES OF BLESSINGS AND BATTLE INHERITED

I never inherited any material thing from my father. But he was a prophet and 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. Today, every one of his children is a prayer warrior. I particularly took after him in prayer, and I also enjoy attention from the high and the mighty of the society because of my prayer grace.

 

Some people inherited material property from their ancestors in addition to satanic afflictions and bondages. Some inherited generational diabetes or high blood pressure. Some people should have made galloping progress and success in their lives by now, but for some unfinished battles in their lives.

Sometime ago, we had just finished a prayer conference in Houston, Texas, USA, and I was looking forward to my rest at the hotel. But the host pastor brought a mother who wanted her daughter to see me for prayer. The lady was a victim of advanced cancer. The cancer was so bad that her bones had become brittle and the spine was twisted. She was already looking like a corpse. However, as I began to pray for her, she reacted violently and the demons behind the affliction began to speak to me through her in Yoruba language. They claimed the father offended them and they have decided to deal with him by afflicting the daughter with cancer. After strong prayer bombardments from me and later from a senior pastor friend, the spirits of cancer left and the lady began to recover. After three months of further medical attention, she recovered. When she resumed to her office after several months, the co-workers were amazed.

This is a case of a battle meant for the father but was transferred to the daughter.

C. FIGHTING TOMORROW’S BATTLES TODAY

• And the children of Benjamin did not drive out the Jebusites that inhabited Jerusalem; but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Benjamin in Jerusalem unto this day (Jdg. 1:21)

• 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 inhither. 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 (2Sam. 5:6-10).

• And Hiram king of Tyre sent his servants unto Solomon; for he had heard that they had anointed him king in the room of his father: for Hiram was ever a lover of David. And Solomon sent to Hiram, saying, Thouknowest how that David my father could not build an house unto the name of the LORD his God for the wars which were about him on every side, until the LORD put them under the soles of his feet. But now the LORD my God hath given me rest on every side, so that there is neither adversary nor evil occurrent. And, behold, I purpose to build an house unto the name of the LORD my God, as the LORD spake unto David my father, saying, Thy son, whom I will set upon thy throne in thy room, he shall build an house unto my name (1 Kgs. 5:5).

• 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 (Jos. 15:63)

1. Some battles like the battles of peculiar illnesses, perenial poverty, rejection, divorce, prolonged singleness, barrenness, delay or failure, may not be of your own making.

2. You are fighting some battles today because some people in your family lineage did not fight those battles properly yesterday.

3. And if you don’t fight and win those battles today, your children are likely to inherit the battles they know nothing about, tomorrow.

4. Many people, including very sincere Christians are victims of battles they know nothing about.

5. When you notice a particular negative occurrence, trend or pattern in your life, and in some members of your family both past and present, it is a sure sign of unfinished or abandoned battles.

6. According to the law of inheritance, children can inherit both assets and liabilities from their parents. Consequently, children can inherit either property or poverty from their parents.

7. Ancient (unfinished) battles are trangenerational battles. They are batons of spiritual conflicts that parents pass on to their children. The children simply continue the same battles the parents fought.

8. When parents fail to defeat certain contrary forces that faced them, the same forces will resume duty in the lives of their children later in life.

a) Terah didn’t defeat the spirit of delay. It afflicted 3 generations after him – Genesis 11:24-30.

b) Joab, the Israeli army commander under David became unruly and too difficult for David to handle, rather than dealing with Joab himself, David left the trouble for Solomon – 2 Kgs. 2:5-6.

c) David also handed over the spirit of polygamy to Solomon, whose record of polygamy became legendary.

9. Another type of inherited battle is the transferred battles. These are battles meant for the parents, but are transferred to the children e.g. Ahab and divine judgement – 1 Kgs. 21:29.

10. Similarly, some African parents can obtain favours from demons or Satan and use their children or future generations as collateral or surety, e.g.:

a) For Satanic Favours Like:

• success of children

• health

• fruitfulness

• longevity

• victory in battles

• favour

b) Their Evil Commitments are Sometimes Made Through:

• oaths

• covenants

• pacts

• agreement

• obligations

• concessions

They thereby compromise or mortgage the destiny of failure generations.

c) As a Result of All These, Many are Victims of:

• unfinished battles

• unfought battles

• undiscerned battles

• ignored battles

• abandoned battles

d) For the Successive Generations, the Battles Then Become:

• transferred battles

• inherited battles

• acquired battles

e) Methods of Battle Transfer:

• through ancestral heritage

• through sin

• through evil dedications

• unserious spiritual life

• through demonic means – incest, evil compromises, etc.

• through the genes

 

D. UNFINISHED BATTLES AND STRONGHOLDS

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled(2 Cor.10:3-6).

Definitions of Stronghold

1. The Greek word for stronghold is Ochuroma which means a fortress or a secured hiding place.

2. The mindset of people in a particular territory. The thought patterns, attitudes and lifestyles of a people over years. Communism is a stronghold. Capitalism is a stronghold. Islam is a stronghold. Hinduism and Buddhism are strongholds.

3. Satanic or idol altars where ancient deities are worshipped.

4. A very well defended and fortified territory.

5. A place specially designed and secured to keep out all intruders or invaders. Jericho, Babylon, Nineveh, Jerusalem, Old Zaria city, and Old Kano city are all strongholds.

6. A special no go area to certain people in institutions and systems. In Nigeria, the position of the Federal Capital Territory Minister has been a stronghold. No Christian has been allowed to occupy that seat so far.

7. A trans-generational problem that a community or family or an individual has failed to conquer.

THE PROBLEM OF TRANS-GENERATIONAL STRONGHOLDS

And Salah lived thirty years, and begat Eber:And Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters. And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg: And Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters. And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu: And Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine years, and begat sons and daughters. And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug: And Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters. And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor: And Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years, and begat sons and daughters. And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terah: And Nahor lived after he begat Terahan hundred and nineteen years, and begat sons and daughters. And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran. Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot. And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees. And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram's wife was Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah. But Sarai was barren; she had no child. And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there. And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran (Gen. 11:14-32).

According to the passage above, the descendants of Abraham before Terah had their firstborns before 39 years of age. Terah, the father of Abraham was the first to have his firstborn at 70 years of age. Terah’s own father had him at 29 years of age.

Therefore, the problem of delay in child bearing started with Terah. This problem unfortunately continued down his family line, as Abraham had his first born at 100 years of age.

The name ‘Terah’ unfortunately means delay. In other words, Terah seemed to have introduced the spiritual virus of delay into his lineage. Consequently, everyone in the generation of Terah suffered the problem of delay in child bearing. Isaac was about 60 years before he had Jacob and Esau. The trend was arrested in the life of Joseph who gave birth to Manasseh without any experience of delay. Delay in child bearing became a stronghold from Terah, but was broken by Joseph. So shall God use you to break any generational stronghold in your family and community.

E. JERUSALEM AS A STRONGHOLD

• 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 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. 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 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 where 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 Zion, it the city of David.

David inherited a trans-generational battle – from Moses to Joshua, and Joshua to others before David. David terminated that battle in his own time, thereby making life easier for his descendants.

1. Why We Must Fight The Strongholds

a) Unless we fight certain strongholds, the Jebusites (the blind and the lame i.e. those who are less qualified, less skilled, less talented, less anointed than us), will limit us and rule over us in our workplaces, cities, states and nations.

b) Unless we conquer the strongholds, we shall continue to coexist with the enemies of Zion, i.e. the enemies of God and the gospel.

c) Unless we fight the strongholds, they might even gain perpetual dominance over us.

d) Unless we fight the strongholds, we shall expose our descendants to needless and endless wars.

2. What Strongholds Do To People

a) They limit and prohibit men.

b) They restrict and confine men.

c) They reduce your sense and power of creativity, fruitfulness and productivity.

d) They hold you to ransom.

e) They keep you perpetually deprived and enslaved.

f) They deny you access to your inheritance and privileges.

g) Strongholds prevent you from becoming your best in life.

h) Strongholds prevent your children and better talented, skilled and qualified people from getting to certain positions in their offices, cities, states and nations.

 

F. THE RESULTS AND BENEFITS OF DAVID’S CONQUEST OF JERUSALEM

By defeating the Jebusites and capturing Jerusalem, the following three things happened through David and to Israel:

1. David made it possible for other kings and generations after him to rule in the city. He paved the way for them.

2. David fought the war his children should still be fighting; he made life easy for them forever.

3. David bequeath to Israel a befitting national capital. He left an eternal legacy.

 

CONCLUSION

There are certain battles we need to fight, rivers we need to cross, giants we need to conquer and lions we need to kill to make life easy for our children, their children, and their generations to come. The Jebusites must be trodden down as their name implies. We must not allow them to continue with the oppression. We must resist them and defeat them.

A Practical Testimony

A beloved friend of mine shared this fascinating story with me long ago about a lady who suddenly noticed she was having dreams and premonition of death. The pattern in her family was that people died at 35 years of age. No matter where the family members were located, they always died at 35 years. Nobody lived above age 35 in that family. Therefore, when this lady began to approach the age 35, she began to have fears and dreams of death. She went from place to place for spiritual help, praying and fasting until she got to a pastor friend of mine. Having narrated her ordeal and family history of premature death, my friend declared a three days fast with her to seek the face of God on what to do about the situation. He then instructed the sister to visit her village to inquire about the reason behind the repeated premature deaths in the family.

When she arrived at the village, she was fortunate to find the only elderly man remaining in their extended royal family. The man was almost 100 years of age. She narrated her plight to the elderly man and pleaded with him to tell her what he knew about the premature death raging in their family. Then the old man began to narrate to her what he knew about the family. He said, “This is a royal family and I was told that the first royalty in our family line had many wives and he had this desire for new young women. In order for this royalty to accommodate a new wife, he would accuse any of the older wives of witchcraft. Once the villagers hear of such accusation, they would execute the suspected witch publicly. By the following day, the young men of the village would tie palm fronds around the hut of the accused woman. Then they packed her belongings and put a calabash on her head and stripped her almost naked and marched her to the evil forest where she would be butchered and killed. By the following week, the king would acquire a new wife. But there was this particular woman among the king’s wives that was about 35 years of age when she was accused of witchcraft by the king. She was almost the oldest among the king’s wives. But because she had a misunderstanding with the king, the king pronounced her a witch. When she was to be executed, she told the people of the community that she was not a witch as accused by the king. She said she was wrongly accused by the king and that because of the wickedness of the king and the villagers, nobody in that family will live beyond the age at which she dying a premature death.

She declared that no one in the king’s lineage will live beyond 35 years. She placed a curse on the entire lineage, and for over 200 years, nobody in that family lived above 35 years.” This was the information the lady needed to solve the mystery of death at 35 years in her family. When the lady was through with gathering that information, she went back to Lagos to give the report to my pastor friend who took her through repentance and spiritual warfare to break the curse of premature death over the family. The battle was fought and won decisively. As at the time of this writing, the lady in question was over 55 years. She fought the battle and won it. She did not pass it over to the next generation. She saved herself and the entire generation coming after her. She gave them liberty to live by confronting and defeating the Jebusites of her family.

May God supply you with the requisite grace and spiritual fire power to defeat every Jebusite spirit afflicting you and your family members in Jesus mighty name.

CONTENDING BY FIRE

Posted on March 15, 2018 at 8:05 AM Comments comments (0)

CONTENDING BY FIRE

(Acquire the Fire to Meet the Desire)

 

INTRODUCTION

Every child of destiny like Jacob of old will have to contend with an Esau adversary in one form or the other and at one time or the other in life. Esau is a destiny contender, a destiny challenger and a destiny waster. As a child of God you are a type of "Jacob" - a destiny child or a destiny carrier, and God has good thoughts and plans of a glorious and fulfilling future for you. His plan is that your light should shine forth such that you make headway in every endeavour of life. But you need to understand that there is a spirit called “Esau”; whose his primary mission is to hinder you from accessing your inheritance.

 

But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions. And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the Lord hath spoken it (Oba. 1:17-18).

 

The struggle between Jacob and Esau started right from their mother’s womb and later worsened when Jacob took Esau’s firstborn-blessing by deceit. Consequently, Esau vowed to kill Jacob over the matter. This led to Jacob fleeing to exile in Haran, where he stayed in the house of his uncle Laban for 20 years. There, he acquired a large family and possessions and God blessed him mightily. But when he was returning to his father Isaac, Esau showed up with four hundred fully armed men. Apparently Esau was coming to revenge his birthright and prophetic blessing that Jacob stole. When Jacob saw them on the way, the Bible says he feared greatly, therefore, he sent gifts to buy Esau’s favour. But Esau rejected them all, ostensibly because he claimed to have enough, but what he actually wanted was Jacob’s life.

 

• And Jacob went on his way, and the angels of God met him. And when Jacob saw them, he said, this is God's host: and he called the name of that place Mahanaim. And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau his brother unto the land of Seir, the country of Edom. And he commanded them, saying, Thus shall ye speak unto my lord Esau; Thy servant Jacob saith thus, I have sojourned with Laban, and stayed there until now: And I have oxen, and asses, flocks, and menservants, and womenservants: and I have sent to tell my lord, that I may find grace in thy sight. And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, we came to thy brother Esau, and also he cometh to meet thee, and four hundred men with him. Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed: and he divided the people that was with him, and the flocks, and herds, and the camels, into two bands; And said, If Esau come to the one company, and smite it, then the other company which is left shall escape.

 

• And he lodged there that same night; and took of that which came to his hand a present for Esau his brother; Two hundred she goats, and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes, and twenty rams, Thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine, and ten bulls, twenty she asses, and ten foals. And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove by themselves; and said unto his servants, Pass over before me, and put a space betwixt drove and drove (Gen. 32:1-8, 13:16).

 

Jacob certainly understood what Esau meant by rejecting the gifts, so he quickly relocated his wives and children, crossed the river, and took shelter under a tree where he prayed to God to deliver him from the hand of his brother. He cried out to God and while he was crying, an angel appeared to him. He grabbed the angel and both of them wrestled until Jacob acquired the fire from the heavenly being.

 

In a most amazing and dramatic manner, Jacob wrestled (a figure or picture of an intense prayer, supplication and intercession) with a live angel! Standing before a live angel in a full angelic glory and power could literally dematerialize or incinerate a person. But Jacob had a prolonged hand-to-hand, body-to-body contact with this live angel from evening till the early morning of the next day! Jacob literally held on to a ‘heavenly high voltage live-wire’ without getting ‘electrocuted’. Fresh from this encounter at Peniel, Jacob became a ‘mobile power bank’ – full of divine fire. As a proof of this rare spiritual and intercessory encounter, the angel dislocated Jacob’s joints, so he began to limp as he walked to face Esau the next day.

 

Just as he was leaping and leaving the place, Esau showed up on the horizon accompanied by four hundred men fully armed for the purpose of attacking and wiping out Jacob and all his household and properties. But when Esau saw Jacob, he ran to hug and embrace him and the moment they embraced or touched each other, Esau broke down in tears. Esau had spiritual ‘electric shock’, and his stony, hardened and vengeful heart melted like wax in the sun. Esau broke down in tears and wept like a baby. Esau wept for quite a while, and Jacob himself became so emotionally overcome that he broke down in tears as well.

 

• And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two womenservants, and his eleven sons, and passed over the ford Jabbok. And he took them, and sent them over the brook, and sent over that he had. And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed. And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there. And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved (Gen. 32:22-30).

 

• And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau came, and with him four hundred men. And he divided the children unto Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two handmaids. And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost. And he passed over before them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother. And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they wept (Gen. 33:1-4).

 

Apparently, Esau was mesmerized by the fire that Jacob carried such that he began to weep at the battle front. After the emotional outburst and outpouring was over, Esau composed himself and began to ask about the welfare of Jacob, as he warmly greeted every member of Jacob’s household! A killer who came to plunder and destroy had suddenly and mysteriously become unusually friendly! I suppose Esau’s 400 hired killers were extremely puzzled at this sudden twist of events. Esau later offered to provide escort for Jacob through the wilderness, persuading him to allow them travel together. The man who came to kill offered and volunteered to become a bodyguard! The vengeful spirit of hatred in Esau was finally arrested; he bowed to the ministry of fire! However, the animosity between the nation of Israel and Esau (Edom) continued in successive generations. On several occasions in the history of the two nations, Edom would join with enemy nations to attack Israel and plunder her. He vehemently resisted Israel; he even disallowed the Israelites from passing through his territory on their way to the Promised Land.

• And Edom said unto him, Thou shalt not pass by me, lest I come out against thee with the sword (Num. 20:18).

 

• Thus Edom refused to give Israel passage through his border: wherefore Israel turned away from him (Num. 20:21).

 

• These were dukes of the sons of Esau: the sons of Eliphaz the firstborn son of Esau; duke Teman, duke Omar, duke Zepho, duke Kenaz, [16] Duke Korah, duke Gatam, and duke Amalek: these are the dukes that came of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these were the sons of Adah (Gen. 36:15-16).

 

A duke represents a captain of a thousand. Therefore, duke Amalek represents the father of the nation of Amalek. This nation later became one of the undying enemies of Israel. The battle between Israel and Amalek was one that required the continued intercession of Moses while the battle proceeded. Later on in the battle, Aaron and Hur had to support the hands of Moses that were being mysteriously weakened by unseen forces. Amalek was one of the descendants of Esau that continued hostilities against Israel. Esau had died but his spirit lived on in successive generations of his descendants. So the house of Esau became a perpetual adversary of the house of Jacob because Jacob carried a strong destiny.

 

Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand. So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses' hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi: For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation (Exo. 17:8-16).

 

THE TRANS-GENERATIONAL CONTENTION

The contention and animosity between the descendants of Esau (Edomites) and (Jacob) Israelites continued in successive generations until it practically became trans-generational. So Esau transformed from being a physical person to become an opposing and afflicting spirit against anyone who is either a Jacob, or anyone who has anything to do with Israel or anyone with a place in destiny.

 

As long as you know you are a kind of Jacob and you have a place in destiny, be prepared for an encounter with an Esau spirit or personality. Be ready for an attacker of your destiny. Let me put it in a way that will help you to realise this important fact:

 

For Every:

• Abraham, there'll be a destiny-hindering Lot.

• Isaac, there is a mocking and rival Ishmael.

• Jacob, there'll be all opposing Esau.

• Joseph, there'll be 10 merciless household wickedness brothers.

• Moses, there'll be a murderous Pharaoh.

• David, there'll be a stubborn pursuer king Saul and a satanic Goliath.

• Naboth, there'll be a covetous and murderous king Ahab.

• King Hezekiah, there'll be an unrelenting attacker Sennacherib.

• Mordecai, there will be an unrelenting mass killer-Haman.

• Elijah, there will be a notorious witch-queen Jezebel.

• Nehemiah, there'll be a satanic siamese twins of Samballat and Tobias.

• Isaiah, there’ll be a destiny delaying King Uzziah.

• Jesus Christ, there'll be a wicked Pontius Pilate.

• Peter, there'll a murderous King Herod.

• Paul, there'll be an Alexander the coppersmith who is a specialist in evil works.

 

Therefore if you are a destiny child then prepare for battle with your own Esau which could be at home, in the office, market place, work place, or even in the church! Esau is meant to limit you and ensure that you do not enter into the fullness of your destiny. Let us look at the different manifestations of the spirit of

Esau and how to deal with them.

 

WHO IS AN ESAU?

1. Esau is a Destiny Contender

Esau is a personality that strives to fight your good dreams and aspirations of life into a standstill. Esau is a person or group of people who are bitterly jealous of your progress in any area of life so he does everything possible to oppose your progress on the way to destiny.

 

2. Esau is a Foundational Adversary

Esau is a personality that knows your background and has vital information about you and uses them to unleash attacks on you. He knows the right spot to lay siege against you.

 

For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man's enemies are the men of his own house (Micah 7:6).

 

3. Esau is Household Wickedness

Esau is an enemy of your destiny that disguises as your friend; an adversary that appears as a relation. Esau is the evil power of your father’s or mother’s house.

 

And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.

But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss? (Luke 22:47-48).

 

4. Esau is an Unrelenting and Implacable Adversary

Esau is an enemy that takes offences and refuses to be placated; he habours ancient animosity and does not forgive or easily let go.

 

5. Esau Employs the Power of Witchcraft or Sorcery

Esau is a diabolical evil personality that manipulates and afflicts you with killer afflictions in certain aspects of life.

 

 

6. Esau is a Trans-generational Adversary

Esau is an angry spirit that pursued your parents and is bent on dealing with you, your children and your children’s children if not stopped.

 

7. Esau is the Power that Strikes You from the Back

Esau is a personality that betrays you at your weak moment; it’s a spirit that takes advantage of your innocence to stab you. Amalek, the descendant of Esau waited till Israel was weak and feeble in the wilderness before attacking them from the rear.

 

Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way, when ye were come forth out of Egypt; How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee, even all that were feeble behind thee, when thou wast faint and weary; and he feared not God. Therefore it shall be, when the LORD thy God hath given thee rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it, that thou shalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; thou shalt not forget it (Deut. 25:17-19).

 

8. Esau is Mr. Wickedness or Mrs. Wickedness

Esau is a merciless personality that causes disaster at the edge of breakthrough. It’s a power that specializes in turning joy to sorrow.

 

9. Esau is a Destiny Waster

Esau vowed to kill Jacob after he lost his birthright to him. He was bent on wasting Jacob's destiny, until God’s fire in Jacob stopped him.

 

10. Esau is an Opposition Leader

Esau had been opposing Jacob from their youth until both of them became adults. And when both died, Esau’s seed throughout different generations were opposed to Israel.

 

11. Esau is a Territorial Power

Esau waited for 20 years for Jacob to pass through his territory on his way back from Laban to his ancestral home in Canaan. He was a type of territorial power and satanic strongman of limitation, bondage and oppression.

 

 

 

12. Esau is an Obstacle to the Promised Land

The Esau spirit is the spirit that is determined never to allow a ‘Jacob’ child to reach or get to his or her Promised Land.

Remember that in their lifetime, Esau had waited for twenty long years with armed conspirators in an evil confederacy at the border of the Promised Land, Canaan – all in an attempt to stop Jacob from reaching and taking possession of the Promised Land. The Esau forces are the wicked powers in different institutions, organizations and systems that through satanic gang-ups try to prevent and block other people’s promotion, progress and prosperity. Esau waylaid Jacob with four hundred men. He was the leader of a killer squad arranged to kill Jacob.

 

THE SOLUTION TO ESAU IS FIRE

In Obadiah 17, 18 God promised to make Jacob a fire such that Esau and all he represents would be totally consumed by it. The solution to the problem of Esau is for Jacob to become a flaming fire. Jacob must go through the divine process of becoming fire and be transformed into fiery Israel.

 

And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the Lord hath spoken it (Oba. 1:18).

 

According to the Bible, Jacob would have to acquire fire in order to deal with Esau. Your Esau, as far as God is concerned, is stubble - dry grass. But God says you must acquire the fire because he has made your Esau dry grass. God’s prophetic word in Obadiah 1:18 says …the house of Esau shall be stubble (dry grass). So no matter the physical, social, political, religious, economic or spiritual configuration and constitution of your opponent (Esau), God’s word declares them as ordinary flammable and combustible dry grass. They are not as strong and as formidable as you think or suppose. But dry grass remains dry grass and constitutes an impediment to movement as long as there is no fire. However, a single stick of match kindled in a dry savannah grassland can burn several hectares of grassland and make a highway for you in the savannah. So as a believer, you must acquire divine fire otherwise ordinary dry grass will block your way of movement and progress. In other words, though the adversary you contend with is weak in the light of your position in Christ, he will still continue to oppress and hinder you from accessing your blessings as long as you have not acquired divine fire. But when God’s blazing prayer fire is at work in your life, the enemies of your destiny become as easily combustible as stubble. Therefore, whatever be the powers of opposition, darkness or personalities behind your issues or challenges, the ministry of fire will subdue them. You must acquire the fire to meet your desire.

 

THE PROCESS OF BECOMING GOD’S FIRE

There are certain basic steps that will help a genuine seeker to become God's flaming fire that is capable of consuming every stubble (Esau) of life. As we pointed out in earlier chapters, the process of generating physical fire involves combustion and this requires frictional contact. This is also true spiritually. If you truly desire the fire, get ready to move out of your comfort zone, and follow the following divine procedures:

1. Personal Salvation

It begins with the certainty of genuine repentance and personal salvation - a fact we cannot overemphasize.

 

• Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God (John 3:3).

 

• Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:37-38).

 

Without the personal experience of salvation, you can as well forget about acquiring divine fire. Becoming a born-again Christian restores your relationship with God and guarantees you eternal life.

 

2. Holy Ghost Baptism

The baptism of the Holy Spirit is another fundamental step next to the experience of salvation. Baptism in the spirit kindles or sparks divine fire in your inner-man.

 

• I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire (Matt. 3:11-12).

 

• But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth (Acts 1:8).

 

3. A Prayer Altar

A strong altar of intercession and devotion for daily divine encounter must be raised and maintained.

 

And the fire upon the altar shall be burning in it; it shall not be put out: and the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt offering in order upon it; and he shall burn thereon the fat of the peace offerings. The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out (Lev. 6:12-13).

 

Personal altar implies a consistent prayer and fasting life. To become progressively strong you must pray and speak in tongues for a long as you can in your prayer time. You must also be an addicted worshipper and praiser of God. Prayer without quality praise may render your prayer mechanical and fleshly.

 

4. Sanctification

A commitment to God's practical sanctification and personal holiness is also a vital imperative for acquiring and sustaining the fire. Impurity of life in any form can become either a fire contaminant or a fire extinguisher.

 

Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not (Isa. 6:5-9).

 

5. Word Addiction

Regular meditation in and copious intake of the Word of God is mandatory. God’s rhema (revealed) word in your spirit supplies the spiritual fuel of divine life to enhance the quality and sustainability of your fire.

 

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces (Jer. 23:29).

 

God’s word in your heart will produce in you strong faith in God about your privileged position in Christ and a corresponding holy boldness to confront every satanic opposition.

 

That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: and hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all (Eph. 1: 17-23).

 

6. Service

Utilize your gifts and talents for Kingdom service, beginning with a commitment to evangelism and soul winning for Christ. Kingdom service provides a very veritable avenue for the expression of your prayer fire.

 

 

7. Exercise of Authority

Regularly exercise spiritual authority. Learn to release God's fire of judgment on every stubborn, persistent pursuer of your life and every anti-gospel and antichrist forces.

8. Obedience

Learn to walk in total obedience to the Holy Spirit. It is only those who submit to the leading of the Holy Spirit that can qualify to be the sons of the God of fire, and only they can qualify to manifest in fire and power.

 

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God (Rom. 8: 14).

CONCLUSION

With Esau and his co-travellers in diabolism and wickedness perfectly and permanently neutralized by fiery Jacob; after a brief period of journeying without fear in the wilderness, Jacob and his entire household arrived safely in his ancestral home, Canaan – the Promised Land. Jacob reached his goal and fulfilled a major part of his destiny. Jacob acquired the fire that helped to meet his desire. You too can.

And Jacob came unto Isaac his father unto Mamre, unto the city of Arbah, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac sojourned. And the days of Isaac were an hundred and fourscore years. And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto his people, being old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him (Gen 35:27-29).
