Dearly Beloved,
Love Greetings in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ by whom we have received the mandate to “Take His Healing Power to the Nations.”

Healing is the restoration to health and normalcy. God is in the restoration business. He restores back to us what was lost in the fall of man. He also restores what we lost through our personal sin or disobedience and even things we were denied because of generational sin or curses.

Satan is the thief. He steals, kills and destroys. That is satan’s modus operandi: his mode of operation. He has no good intentions. His name is devil. He is the embodiment of all evil. Satan is a murderer and a destroyer. If it steals, kills or destroys, it is a direct or indirect work of satan. See John 10:10; 8:44; Acts 10:38; 1 John 3:8.

All the destructive work we see on earth are the works of satan. All the sicknesses and diseases of this world are from satan. All the wars and crisis are caused by the influence and manipulations of satan. Poverty, lack and deprivation are from satan. God is a blesser and an increaser. See Matthew 7:7-11; Isaiah 65:24; Ephesians 3:20.

James 1:17 NKJV
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

God never does evil. He is absolutely good and always does good. God is far better than you think. He is much more loving than you know. God wants you to have more than enough. He wants you to be healthy and strong. Think about it. Jesus came to do the Father’s will. He never made anyone sick. He healed everyone who came to Him for healing. He never turned anyone down. He is always willing to help, bless and uplift. That’s my God!

God wants you to live long. He wants you to prosper. God desires for your life to be a foretaste of heaven on earth. See Matthew 6:10; 2 Corinthians 5:5 MSG. He wants you to have children. God is not the withholder. God is always a giver. He is generous, always seeking to do you good. Think about it. God is on your side. Trust Him to do you good. See Romans 8:31-32; James 1:5 AMPC; John 10:10; 3 John 2; Romans 5:8; Psalm 127:3; 128:3; 113:9; 91:16; Deuteronomy 8:18.

Knowing God Intimately 2


9:03pm,
05:03:2021

Dearly Beloved,
Greetings of Grace, Mercy and Peace in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ by whom we have received grace and apostleship for obedience of faith amongst all nations.

We are on a journey together throughout this month on a study of God’s Word that should help each reader grow in their walk with God. I passionately desire to see God’s people to know God personally. Intimately and practically.

I know from experience that everything boils down to knowing God. This is why Paul the Apostle prayed that, “The God of our Lord Jesus Christ and the Father of glory may give unto you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.” See Ephesians 1:17-19.
When we know God personally and intimately, our lives take on a new meaning. The Bible says, “The eyes of our understanding will be enlightened.” Knowing God increases your capacity for spiritual understanding. If you want to experience uncommon wisdom and inexplicable intelligence, then press into to know God through His Word. See Colossians 1:9-11.

Knowing God through His Word and the Power of the Holy Spirit gives you a sense of purpose and destiny. You will know the hope of His calling. Knowing God gives you a sense of meaning and hope. When you know Him you will realize that you will become more hopeful and your future will be secure. See Jeremiah 29:11-13.

As we get into the Word to know Him we begin to discover the good things that God has laid up for us. God has prepared everything you will ever need. You are not disadvantaged no matter what you are going through. All you need is a discovery of what God has preplanned for you. See Ephesians 1:3-4; 1:17-19; 1 Corinthians 2:9-12; 2 Peter 1:2-4.

Knowing God also empowers us. Knowledge emboldens. Knowing God will make you strong spiritually. Your spiritual strength is tied to the depth of your knowledge. Knowledge is a defense. Knowledge is also a story changer. Determine to diligently study the Word to know Him. Spend quality time in prayer speaking with other tongues to receive downloads of insight, wisdom and knowledge. See Proverbs 24:5; 24:20; Isaiah 5:13; Hosea 4:6; Acts 20:32; Philippians 1:9-11; 2 Timothy 2:24-26; Daniel 11:32.

Knowing God Intimately

10:24pm
04-03-2021

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace be multiplied unto you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ by whom we have been adopted into the family of God as sons of God.

God is calling us into a place of greater intimacy with Him. God desires for you to know Him more than. you know anything else in this world. Knowing God is the key to getting anything else you want in this life. Really? Of course yes it is.

2 Peter 1:2-3 KJV
Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

Everything comes through our knowledge of God. We access our inheritance through the knowledge of God and His Word. That’s why Paul the Apostle said, “I commend you to God and to the Word of His grace which is able to build you up and to give you an inheritance among those who are sanctified.” See Acts 20:32

There are many Christians who are going through extreme difficulty who do not know that they can only experience change by getting the knowledge of God’s Word and by putting the Word to work. Revelation without application is a missed opportunity.

Deuteronomy 29:29 KJV
The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

God’s Word is God’s answer to all our challenges and all our questions. God’s Word is a revelation of His perfect will for our lives. If you want to know what God wants you to be, do or have, get into His Word for yourself. See John 5:39; 2 Timothy 2:15; John 8:30-32

There are people who are painfully sick but God wants them healed, well and strong. The Bible is the written revelation of His perfect will. Jesus is the Living Word. He is the will of God in action. Jesus said, “I came to do my Father’s will.” Everything Jesus did was the will of God.

John 5:30 KJV
I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

John 6:38 KJV
For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

Healing is God’s will. Healing is always God’s will because Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. God always heals. God doesn’t want you sick and oppressed and without. Jesus always healed the sick. Jesus delivered the oppressed. Jesus fed the hungry.

2 Corinthians 8:9 KJV
For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.

God doesn’t want you poor. He died to break every curse from your life, to put an end to every demonic oppression and to empower you to do the same works that He did. See John 10:10; 2 Corinthians 9:8; Romans 10:12 ESV; Galatians 3:13-14

Christianity is more than attending churches. It is becoming one with God through Jesus Christ. Christianity is Christ revealed through a man. A Christian should be an embodiment and an expression of the will of God. See John 14:12; 3 John 2; 1 Corinthians 6:17; Ephesians 3:20; Colossians 1:27; Philippians 2:13

The Power of God’s Word

The Power of God’s Word
1 John 2:14 NKJV
I have written to you, fathers,
Because you have known Him who is from the beginning.
I have written to you, young men,
Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you,
And you have overcome the wicked one.
The knowledge of the Word is vital to the quality of life you live and the kind of outcomes you experience.
For instance, according to Isaiah 5:13 which says, “My people are gone into captivity because they have no knowledge….” It becomes obvious that ignorance of the Word has deadly consequences. God told the Children of Israel, saying, “My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge….” Your ignorance of God’s Word has serious consequences. See Hosea 4:6.
It is written, “They know not, neither will they understand, they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.” See Psalm 82:5. All chaos is rooted in ignorance. Ignorance is darkness while knowledge is light. Satan is the prince of darkness. He only rules where there is darkness. Light dethrones him. As you gain more light and knowledge from the Word the more victorious you will be.
Paul the Apostle said, “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” See 2 Corinthians 2:11. Satan’s greatest weapon against any individual is ignorance, deception and misinformation. See 2 Corinthians 11:3; Genesis 3:1-7.
It’s time to get into the Word like never before. It’s time to read it objectively, intentionally and consistently. As you do many good things await you. Time spent in the Word has many rewarding benefits.
The Word of God has Cleansing Power
The Power of God’s Word at work in you cannot be overestimated. God’s Word has transformative power as revealed in the Words of our Lord Jesus Christ in John 15:3, He said, “Now You are clean through the Word which I have spoken unto you.” That means God’s Word has cleansing power.
The more you expose yourself to the Word, the cleaner your mind and your heart. The Word of God is a spiritual purgative as evident in the Words of David the Psalmist, “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way?
by taking heed thereto according to thy word….Thy word have I hid in mine heart,
that I might not sin against thee.” (Psalm 119:9,11 KJV) Time spent in the Word is your greatest deterrent against any sin and bad habits. Fill your heart and mind with it and it will cleanse you from within. The Word in you breaks the power and the influence of sin in your life.
The Word of God Has Healing Power
Psalms 107:20 NKJV
He sent his word, and healed them,
and delivered them from their destructions.
The Word of God has Healing Power. The Healing Power of God is carried in His Word. The more time you spend in the Word of God, the healthier you will be.
The Word received into you has medicinal effect as reported by King Solomon, “My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes;
keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them,
and health to all their flesh.” See Proverbs 4:20-22.
Spending time in the Word does you a lot of good. It renews your mind and fills your heart and mind with the insights, principles and strategies that will facilitate your success in life, relationships and in all realms of your existence.
The Word of God brings blessings
 
Your relationship and fellowship with the Word of God is a major decider of the outcomes of your life. When do what we are taught and act on what we believe we are blessed in our doing.
Luke 11:28 KJV
But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.
James 1:25 KJV
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
Let us not be hearers only but doers of the Word. It is the doer that is blessed not hearers. By thinking, speaking and doing the Word we make our ways prosperous and have good success. See Joshua 1:8. As we let the Word dominate our thinking, it gives us a great sense of peace. See Isaiah 26:3.
The Word also builds faith into us as recorded in Romans 10:17. The more we feed on it, the more our faith grows. Faith flourishes when we stay on the Word. Faith flounders when we are starved of the Word. Feeding your heart and mind on rich Biblical content helps you grow spiritually. See 1 Peter 2:2. It is an absolute necessity for the believer to stay on the Word to receive the many riches made available to us through Christ. See Acts 20:32. Get into the Word and experience for yourself the blessings in the Word. It’s up to you. Don’t procrastinate; Please start now. Selah

A Christian’s Assurance in the Face of Crisis Featured

Galatians 1:3-4 KJV
Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

2 Samuel 24:25 NKJV
And David built there an altar to the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD heeded the prayers for the land, and the plague was withdrawn from Israel.

Christ Jesus has been offered on behalf of the Body of Christ. He has offered Himself without spot to God to cleanse us from our sins which delivers us from this present evil world. Christ’s death was the full payment for all our sins. This was the propitiation for our sins. God looks upon us in mercy and chooses to watch over us and protect us as His own. See 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

The Blood of Jesus Christ has established a New Covenant based upon better promises. The New Covenant is far better than the Old Testament. If God protected those in the ancient times under the Old Covenant, then most assuredly He will see to it that you are safe. See Matthew 11:11; Hebrews 7:22; 8:6.

Remember that God the Father loves you the way He loves Jesus. Think about it. God would willingly and joyfully do for you whatever He would have done for Jesus if He was here on earth. Why? Because as He is so are we in this world. You are the Body of Christ. See John 17:23; 1 John 4:16-18; 1 Corinthians 6:15-17; Colossians 1:24.

You are not an ordinary person. See 1 Peter 2:9; 1 Corinthians 6:1-3. You have a privileged place in God. Get it straight: You are special to God. He considers you a special envoy and an ambassador of the kingdom of God. You are entitled to the protection of angels. See 2 Corinthians 5:20.

Psalms 91:11-13 NKJV
For he shall give his angels charge over thee,
to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee up in their hands,
lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder:
the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

Psalms 34:7 NKJV
The angel of the LORD encampeth
round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.

God has assigned His angels to protect you and to preserve in these times. Fret not, God is faithful, He won’t let you down. He preserved Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. He plagued Pharaoh and his family because of Abraham and Sarah. He closed the wombs of everyone in Abimelech’s because of them too. You are the seed of Abraham. So you can be rest assured that God will preserve you and deal with all those who come against you. Selah

Let the following words comfort your heart:

Isaiah 41:10-13 KJV
Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee;
yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded:
they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.
Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee:
they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.
For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand,
saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.

Rest in the Lord. He will protect you, preserve you and cover you at all times from the evils of these last days. Not one of your hairs will perish. Trust God! He has been doing this for a very long time. Selah

How To Use Your Authority

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace be multiplied unto you from God the Father and from Jesus Christ our Lord in whose Name we have been given authority over devils.

Love Greetings in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ through whom we have an unqualified access the the Father and all the bounties of heaven. See Ephesians 1:3; Philippians 4:19.
Today I want us to look at the subject of authority. Authority in its simplest terms is “Delegated Power.” Authority is the legal right to use power. It is the right to command and enforce obedience. Authority is right, mastery, jurisdiction, capacity etc. See Luke 10:17-19.
Until a believer understands his or her authority in Christ he or she will not be able walk in victory and enjoy the quality of life that God has ordained for him or her.


We live in a wicked world. See 1 John 5:19; Ephesians 6:18; 1 Thessalonians 2:18; 1 Corinthians 16:9. There are spiritual forces that seek to hinder your progress, delay your dreams and destroy you and yours. See John 10:10a. But God has an answer to all of these.
Firstly, we need to know that the blood of Jesus Christ and His vicarious death on the cross did not only fix the sin problem.
Hebrews 2:14-15 KJVForasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
The word destroy in this context means the following:

The Believer has tremendous Authority in Christ
  1. To render entirely idle or useless
  2. Abolish
  3. To do away
  4. To make of none effect
  5. To bring to nought
  6. Inoperative
  7. Inactivate
  8. To cause a person or thing to have no further efficiency
  9. To deprive of force, influence or power

This means that when Jesus died on the cross, He incapacitated the enemy. By virtue of Christ’s death on the cross, all of satan’s power over us is broken. The blood of Christ delegitimizes satan’s authority over us. His authority over us was due to the sin question. The Bible says, “The wages of sin is death.” This means the payment for sin is death. The death of Jesus Christ was the FULL payment for all our sins. See Hebrews 9:14-17; 9:26-28;10:5-13; Romans 4:25; 1 John 3:8; Colossians 2:13-15 ESV.


By reason of Christ’s death we are free people. Satan’s hold or control over us has become illegitimate. The price has been paid. We have been bought with a price. No matter the covenant that our ancestors had with satan or devils, by reason of the New Birth and the efficacy of the blood we are free people. The blood of Jesus has broken our ties with such allegiances. When we say the sinner’s prayer or accept Christ as our Lord and personal savior, we have broken any ties or link with those devils. We have pledged our allegiance to a new King: Jesus is His Name. He is our Lord.
Ignorance is the devil’s greatest weapon against the Church. He will bring up issues of your past against you in order to keep you condemned and under the whiplash of shame, guilt and condemnation. You need to know that God forgives completely and thoroughly. See Hebrews 8:12; 10:17; 1 John 1:9; 5:17.


This is the reason why the Lord sent us to preach repentance and remission of sins. See Luke 24:46; Acts 5:31; 13:38-39; John 3:16-17. When people become aware of the fact that Christ’s death makes satan’s hold over them illegal, they will resist and rebel against his oppressive rule over them. They will become bold to command and demand for their freedom and their liberties from all kinds of spiritual oppression. The blood of Jesus has set you free. The blood has cleansed you. Take a bold stance against the enemy in the authority of Jesus Christ’s Name. Demand your freedom. Christ has redeemed you from the curse. See Galatians 3:13-14; Ephesians 1:3-4.
Isaiah 49:24-25 KJVShall the prey be taken from the mighty,or the lawful captive delivered?But thus saith the Lord,Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away,and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered:for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee,and I will save thy children.
