In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day (Gen 1:1-6)
Economic woes, Hardship, Chaotic conditions, High Inflation are not new events; they have happened in times past and will continue to happen. What is important is; WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
Many Believers will say, they will PRAY UNTIL GOD CHANGES IT! As good as this intention is, this alone will not change the situation. As the Law of Inertia states: Matter will continue in motion or remain in a state of rest until an external force is applied.
Unfavorable Matters will definitely continue until something is done. A keen look at the scripture above reveals that during this unfavorable and chaotic condition, God did something about it. His action turned things around and produced a beautiful planet with a self-sustaining garden with magnificent creatures. He did not just make things better but went on to create things that never existed before.
PONDER: One profound fact is that He did all these without any external resource, Heavenly aid/bail out but used what was already available.
How did He achieve this?
From Verse two (Hovering over the face of the waters) we see that He was scanning the environment (covered with waters). This He must have done in order to assess the whole situation identify resources and creatively brood over positive possibilities.
We are not told for how long He did this, but we can see that as soon as He had an Idea (Let there be Light). It created the First day of a Favorable and Glorious future.
#Wiser: You don’t wait to get into the future; you produce your future from the resources of Today.
For you to turn situations around, strategic and creative thinking is the first step.
This thinking is to:
After this has been done, one must then go into action and start creating, inventing and implementing these solutions. This will usher in the Beginning of a personal Favorable economic year for such a one.
In the city of Lagos in Nigeria, there are at least 10,000 shops to one industry. No wonder we are the Market for more Creative Nations. We rather sell goods/products than Create, even the resources we have we export them to be reprocessed and imported back to us. There is no way we can be Economic giants if we continue this way.
Great one, stop complaining about the present economic condition, Reason with God and get Inspired to Create New products and services. This products and services will bring about a transformation in your finances and in your life in General.
“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.
If you are willing and obedient,
you shall eat the good of the land
You are blessed!

What is Ministry?
Ministry is a God ordained channel or Endeavor that positively meets either the Spiritual or Physical needs of men. Many till today still think that is always has to be a church or para-church Organization but that is not the case.
Here is proof:
The First Man named Adam that was given a divine assignment was not a pastor nor was he an evangelist; he was simply a garden caretaker.
Even our father of faith Abraham did not have a congregation that he was feeding with the Word of God regularly.
Esther was not a prophetess but she was still very instrumental in the preservation of the divine destiny of the Jews
David used his music in the palace of Saul not to praise God but to attend to the Kings needs to list a few.
Certainly there are also people like Jeremiah, Isaiah, Samuel,Pauland other apostles that met Spiritual needs.
If you look at Genesis chapter one you will find out that God used only two resources to create everything visible including you. These resources are’ Water’ (Gen 1:20-21) and ‘land’ (Gen 1:24).
Water represents Spirit, and Land Represents commerce.
He said to me sometime last year that every man has a divine mandate to meet both physical(things that pertain to Life) and Spiritual needs(Godliness) and our success is tied to the degree to which we achieve both. That’s why He calls people twice.g Saul Saul (Acts 9;4) Jacob, Jacob(Gen 46;2) Moses Moses(Ex 3;4)
Many of you that are not familiar with my history may not know that before my encounter with Christ I was a Music Artiste, I used to sing,rap and even produce, it still amazes some of my flock when they see me rap with ease and when they hear my beats. Even till now Music holds a very special place in my heart. In fact asides from preaching the word, Music is my passion!
God has however given me a passion and mandate to help in the propagation and support of Good decent Music. I don’t know if you are like me but am sick and tired of the crap I hear on radio, Music videos are even now strip tease. If you do a little research you will be amazed to find out that most of these guys grow up and started in the church but in other to sell they have compromised and even many have gone overboard.

The dispensation of the finished work of God
A wise football coach would execute all his tactics before the end of a match to ensure victory, if a man would do this, How much more God, the embodiment of Wisdom. He also must finish His work on earth before the end of the world. Interestingly since the Spirit is His Super Sub; it means His work is finished (the Holy Spirit has been given). The custodian of His revelation in this last times even said on the Cross ‘It is Finished’. In view of the fact that He also is the Truth it is right to say that we are in the era of God’s finished work!
For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceasedfrom his own works, as God did from his Heb 4:10(KJV)
Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and thewilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest Isa32:15(KJV)
We are in the dispensation of the finished work of Godand not in the doing (Active work) of God!
The only thing God is doing for us now is resting andwatching. In fact you can liken the bible to a movie titled’ theSalvation of Man’, the movie was written, produced, directed and evenstarred God as the lead actor. If you study the bible you will see that Jesuscame to play a Script. The word Scripture is a Combination of two words,’Script’ and ‘creature’.
Every Script of God requires fulfillment by a creature, eventhe coming of Jesus establishes this truth.
For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and ofgoats should take away sins.
Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith,Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:
In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hasthad no pleasure.
Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it iswritten of me,) to do thy will, O God
Where He was born, all He did, even to His speech wasforetold.
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice,saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is to say, My God, my God, why hastthou forsaken me? Matthew 27:46
These exact words were even prophesied in Psalms 22:1 MyGod, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Why art thou so far from helping me,and from the words of my roaring?
However when He Said ‘It is finished’ what He the directorwas saying is ‘CUT IT’S A WRAP. TheImplication of this is that the baton has been passed to us, Sons of God and He(God) has seized to be the lead actor!
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, andpreach the gospel to every creature.
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; buthe that believeth not shall be damned.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; in myname shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
They shall take up serpents; and if they drink anydeadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, andthey shall recover.
So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was receivedup into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God- Mark 16:15-19(KJV)
Lots of people stillpray prayers like; God come and fight forme, Lord Come and heal our land and many in this light of God come dos. Now if God is stillfighting for us why will he give us armor?
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God thatye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about withtruth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospelof peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith yeshall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of theSpirit, which is the word of God: Eph 6:13-17(KJV)
You see thisscripture shows that we are the ones doing the fighting and the only thingconnected to God is the armor which he gave to us. This armor is the same oneGod was using then when He was the one fighting for those under the oldcovenant.
And he saw that there was no man, and wondered thatthere was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and hisrighteousness, it sustained him.
For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and anhelmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance forclothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloke.
In addition, why would His word say that ‘He has given us all authority to overcome all the works of the devil…? And He still, will want to be the active one on earth? When Authority means, lega lright to act, control and rule without asking for permission, that just does not make sense!
Jesus said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me. Joh 14:6 In the above scripture Jesus made a bold statement that no other person in History has ever made. not even Moses, elijah or the rest could say this, and no other man alive has been able to say this. He not only said this but has also proved it to be true. For only one who is life Himself can die and come back to life. I would have talked about how is the way and the life but my emphasis today is on‘ I am the Truth’ If He has proved He is the way and the life, it also means that He is really THE TRUTH! So what is He the truth about,
He even went as far as saying later that: All who came before me are thieves and outlaws: but the sheep did not give ear to them in John 10;8.
This is because He alone is the truth about:
1.Who we really are(Sons of God, not servants or friends only). that’s why He alone remains our perfect example, no Israelite, not even the Disciples or the apostle will do.
2.How we should operate. We should always be in command of situation and other spirits, We should allow problems , or challenges take us to God, but we should attack them not from the perceptive of need but from the Mentality of God in us. He never asked God to do anything, He simply addressed situations
3, How we are to God and How God feels about us.
Let me stop here for now, because i have to dash off for a Vigil.
You are blessed!
