The Blessed Life

The Blessed Life

Dearly Beloved,

Love Greetings of Goodwill and Bliss be unto you in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ by whom we have received the mandate to “Preach the Full Message of this New Life” to the peoples of this world.
Welcome to the Month of April: Our Month of the Blessed Life. God ordained the Christian Life to be a foretaste of heaven on earth. Jesus Christ Himself said we should pray, “Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Think about. God wants you and I to start enjoying the heavenly quality of Life from here. See Matthew 6:10
John the Beloved Apostle of Love and Life said, “As He is so are we in this world.” This lets you know that Christianity is call to a better and higher quality of life: Life as God has it. Oh the Love of God so amazing and overwhelming. Why would He want mere mortals to enjoy His quality of Life. Thank you Sir! Thank you so much my Father. See 1 John 4:16-18.
In Paul’s account in the Message Translation, in 2 Corinthians 5:5, Paul said, “The Spirit of God whets our appetite by giving us a taste of what’s ahead. He puts a little of heaven in our hearts so that we’ll never settle for less.” You were meant to enjoy a life of heaven on earth. You were never meant to suffer sickness and affliction. Really? Some may ask? Yes. See Isaiah 53:4-5 YLT; Acts 10:38; John 10:10; 1 John 3:8; Exodus 23:25.
Do you know that under the Old Covenant whenever the children of Israel needed anything that was not available on earth, they could get it from heaven. Manna was angels’s food. Think about it. There was no food for them in the wilderness so God opened the windows of heaven and poured out Manna. God was willing to give His best to people under the Old Covenant how much more we under a Better Covenant. See Hebrews 7:22; 8:6; 11:39-40.
We have a Better Testament in Christ based upon better promises. That means God has opened unto us His riches in glory. Our days of shortage and lack are behind us. Do you not know that you are “Blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” This means all the resources, graces and riches of heaven are available to you. Think about it. See Ephesians 1:3; Galatians 1:3-4: Philippians 4:19; Colossians 1:27-29; Ephesians 3:20; Colossians 3:1-3.
Now you see why Paul tells us to set our minds and our affection on things above. We are not limited to the natural sphere like natural men. We are born from above. Our citizenship is in heaven. So as heavenly citizens. We can expect the resources of heaven to flow unabated in our lives. Please kindly read the Scripture below:
John 1:16 AMPC
For out of His fullness (abundance) we have all received [all had a share and we were all supplied with] one grace after another and spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing and even favor upon favor and gift [heaped] upon gift.
God is not withholding anything from you. He makes all that He is and all that He has available to you through Christ. That’s why the Apostle wrote, “Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours: whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death, or things present or things to come—all are yours. And you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.” See 1 Corinthians 3:21-23; John 17:22-23; 17:26; John 1:16; Colossians 1:19; 2:9-10 AMPC; Ephesians 3:19-20 AMPC.
All things are yours. All the promises of God are yes and in Him Amen. In Christ, we have a Father that is committed to our wellbeing. A Father who wants to give us our daily bread. A Father who passionately wants us to prosper, be in health even as our soul prospers. He wants to give good things to those that ask Him. A Father who freely gives us all things. See Matthew 7:7-11; 3 John 2; Matthew 6:11; Romans 8:32 NIV; James 1:5 AMPC. What a Dad! Abba! Papa! You are too good.
An in-depth study of the Word of God reveals a God far better than we think, more loving than we know, more caring than we can imagine and more concerned about us than we know. Do you know that God thinks about you? Yes I mean you. He constantly thinks about how to do you good. You are His child. His very own child. Your Father cares. Let Him help you. Be free to talk to Him as you would talk to your closest friend. He is waiting. It’s your move.
To be continued….
In His Majesty’s Service,

How To Know God Personally and Intimately

How To Know God Personally and Intimately

Philippians 3:3-10; Ephesians 3:14-19

To know Him. God created you know Him intimately and personally. See Exodus 6:6-7; 8:10; 16:12; Deuteronomy 4:32-35; John 17:3; Jeremiah 9:23-24; 31:31-34; Hebrews 8:8-12; Psalm 82:5; Hosea 4:6; 6:3; Isaiah 5:13; Daniel 11:32

How to know God personally and intimately:
Through the New Birth. When a man or woman becomes born again, he or she receives the capacity to know God personally and intimately. See 2 Corinthians 4:3-4; Ephesians 4:17-18; John 3:1-7; Romans 8:16; Psalm 51:6; Psalm 18:28; Proverbs 20:27; John 1:4-5; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Matthew 11:25; Matthew 13:11; Acts 22:14;

Enim dolore meliore ea mea. Ius ei minim possit intellegat, an sea ornatus appetere. Ei mei scripta intellegat. Verear voluptaria eam at


Through the Word: The primary to know God is through His Written Word. The Written Word, the Bible is the accurate revelation of who God is. It is God’s testimony about Himself. See 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21. God and His Word are one. God and His Word are inseparable. God never contradicts His Word. John 1:1-3; 8:30-32; 2 Peter 1:2-3; 1 Samuel 3:1,7; 3:21;
Through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the agent of Divine Revelation. You cannot know God without the help of the Holy Spirit. He is our Teacher. The Holy Spirit gives us access to the accurate knowledge of God. See John 6:45; 14:26; 15:26. The Holy Ghost never contradicts the Written Word. He guides us in line with the Holy Spirit. See 16:13-15;1 Corinthians 2:9-12; 1 John 2:20,27


Through the Knowledge of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh. Everything He said or did was the Father’s will. The more we know Jesus the more we know the Father better. Jesus was the will of God in action. Jesus did exactly what God the Father wanted done in the way that He wanted it done. He was the PERFECT WILL OF GOD in motion. See John 1:14; 1:18 NLT, MSG, AMPC; 5:19-20; 5:30; 5:37-39; 6:38; 14:6-11
Through the teachings of God’s Word: When we teach and preach God’s Word we make God known unto others. Explanation and Proclamation are the anchors of revelation. See Romans 10:14-17; Ephesians 3:1-9; 1 Timothy 4:6; 2 Timothy 3:14-17. The goal of every sincere teacher or preacher should be to unveil Jesus Christ to others. See 2 Corinthians 4:1-5
Through time spent in prayer and fellowship with the Holy Spirit. As we spent time in fellowship with God, He will reveal deep and intimate things about Himself to us. This happens when we ask Him to reveal Himself to us. See Exodus 33:12-23; Psalm 63:1-2; Ephesians 1:17-19; Colossians 1:9-10; Philippians 1:9-11


Through Visionary Encounters: Divine encounters through visions and revelations transforms our lives, our character, our attitudes and our disposition towards others. See Exodus 3:1-15; 6:1-2; 33:12-34:10; Isaiah 6:1-8; Acts 26:12-19; 2 Corinthians 12:1-10.

God reveals Himself through Visionary Encounters. All encounters must be tested with the Word.


Through Experiential Knowledge: As we walk with God and observe His workings we can tell whether something is of God or not. Walking with God leads to discernment. As you walk with God and engage ins spiritual exercises our spiritual senses are developed. See Exodus 32:15-18; 2 Kings 6:8-18; Hebrews 5:11-14; 1 Timothy 4:7-8


Through Dreams and Revelations: God also reveals Himself and His will to us through dreams and revelations. Every dream or revelation has to be tested with the Word of God. See Numbers 12:5-8; Joel 2:28; Acts 2:16-17; 16:9-10. A dream is a prophetic parable and needs to be interpreted in the light of God’s Word. See Job 33:14-18; Daniel 4:1-37; 7:1-14

This Gospel

Greetings in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ by whom we have received the mandate and the commission to enlighten the peoples of this world with the knowledge of God’s Word by providing, packaging and sourcing for quality programming that inspire faith, refine character and empower change in individuals and societies.

I believe that someday we will launch New Vision TV Europe; a TV station in the New Vision Family of Networks. We have a clear mandate to creatively and consistently present the Biblical message to a new generation without compromising its essence.

We are grateful for the launch of New Vision TV in Yenagoa that feeds and floods our African audience with information, inspiration and insight (with the inclusion of Southern Europe.) God has started something that will never stop. The Bible says, “Of the increase of His government and of peace there shall be no end.” See Isaiah 9:7a

The Gospel of Christ is to be preached to all Nations of the earth

We seek to proclaim the Gospel of Peace in sincerity, simplicity and in partnership with the Holy Spirit. I am passionate about seeing the Gospel dominate this world. My heart yearns to see the Gospel spread rapidly. The zeal of the Lord has consumed me. I have lost my dreams in His dreams. I have taken up His Vision to see souls saved, bodies healed, people delivered from all kinds of oppression. God help me. I have been enraptured with His dreams.

One night I woke up shouting, “My destiny is to preach the Gospel.” I kept on shouting it for a while. That was in October, 1996. It is still burning in my heart. I consider myself a bond slave of the Gospel. Christ’s dream for the world must be achieved in our generation. It must not die. It must not be delayed. It MUST come to pass. “And this Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations.” I am sold out to God’s redemptive plan. I will preach it. I will promote it. Together we will blanket this world with the Gospel. God is with us. He will help us. He will sponsor us. He will thrust us forward. Selah

Christ’s Bond Slave,
