I trust you were blessed by the last post, and you did not just read, but you have been practicing quiet times with God in your heart. If you have been doing that for sure your Spiritual Mode is been enhanced
Now lets look at something else Jesus did.
Matt 14: 22-25(amp)
Then He directed the disciples to get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent away the crowds.
23 And after He had dismissed the multitudes, He went up into the hills by Himself to pray. When it was evening, He was still there alone.
24 But the boat was by this time out on the sea, many furlongs [a furlong is one-eighth of a mile] distant from the land, beaten and tossed by the waves, for the wind was against them.
25 And in the fourth watch [between 3:00—6:00 a.m.] of the night, Jesus came to them, walking on the sea.
As i highlighted the very next thing Jesus did was to pray, unlike the disciples they went into the boat( did the usually, hustling and busting), but Jesus knew that the season ahead required increased capacity and a way to surely increase this was to pray.
as basic as this may be, lets found out somethings about the way Jesus prayed.
From the scripture above some things can be deduced.
a good question to ask is could he not have prayed in the presence of the multitude or even in the boat with His disciples? at least one can pray anywhere and God would hear. The gospels also revealed how solitary prayer many times was Jesus’ habit why is this?.
a very good reason why Jesus did private prayers is revealed in this scripture
Heb 5: 7(AMP) EMPHASIS ADDED
In the days of His flesh [Jesus] offered up definite, special petitions [for that which He not only wanted but needed] and supplications with strong crying and tears to Him Who was [always] able to save Him [out] from death, and He was heard because of His reverence toward God [His godly fear, His piety, in that He shrank from the horrors of separation from the bright presence of the Father].
His solitary place was the only place where He could not be distracted nor will He disturb anyone, and there he could fully express Himself in the most humble form before God.
His prayers were not the Tush ones we do, He prayed very loudly and passionately.
To be honest with you i too have been asking God for more grace to pray like this, i even recently bought a book on prayer by E. M BONDS, so i can improve in my quality of prayers.
Jesus’ prayers were very passionate and intense, no wonder in the garden of gethesame blood was even dripping like sweat from His body.
May a fresh grace of prayer come upon us , in this season in Jesus name.
2.His prayer was for long hours:
counting from when he sent the crowd away and when he came to meet the disciples walking on water( from afternoon to around 3 am- 6 am), He must have prayed for nothing less then 7 hours,whoops!
This is way beyond our rush hour morning prayer + late night prayer+ prayers during service.
He knew that Spending Quality time in prayer with God will transform and empower Him with dominating power for the new season.
The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].
Oh that we may pray heartfeltly and continuously, and enhance our supernatural mode, and ARISE, SHINE so as to overcome contrary situations of economy and environment this year to enjoy FULL RESTORATION.
THIS IS THE ONLY KIND OF PRAYER THAT CAN ACTIVATE AND ENHANCE OUR SUPERNATURAL MODE!
as we do the glory of God and the Powers of Heaven will baptize us afresh and we will Arise in God’s glory and Dominate all situations and challenges in Jesus name.
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.
In helping many musically creative youth God inspired mewith the idea to start www.unitedsoundarmy.com

THE WORD OF GOD FOR THE YEAR
Gen 1:14 God spoke: “Lights! Come out! Shine in Heaven’s sky! Separate Day from Night. Mark seasons and days and years (MSG) emphasis added.
It is Important to note that God is the founder of Years and He is also fully aware when new ones come. God as we also know, has plans and agendas, so it safe to say that He has an agenda for Year 2014.
From the above scripture we see that there is a Breaking Forth of New Light each year to differentiate one year from another. Light represents “Revelation”(which is insight into the divine to cause changes in the physical realm). If at creation God did nothing until He commanded Light to be, then also we also will not achieve anything tangible this year until we lay hold on the light for 2014, as last year’s Light is not sufficient for this year.
What is God saying?
Pro 14:11-12 The house of the wicked will be overthrown, But the tent of the upright will flourish. There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.
God is saying Year 2014 is Our Year of Flourishing!
However our flourishing is tied to divine insight and following Gods path as if we don’t, we will suffer the same fate as the wicked that will be destroyed this year. Watch out for many wicked people that will be disgraced, and their businesses that will go down, However We the Righteous Shall have wonderful breakthroughs, and striving businesses , new successful businesses from us will also do excellently well this year,
As God at creation after commanding light to be was able to recognize Available resources needed to create all things, I decree that your Spiritual eyes will be opened to discern available human resources, opportunities and knowledge on how to take full advantage of them, you also will know the different types of people God will send your way, and the parts they are to play in your destiny this year, you will walk in uncommon wisdom and also know what to do in every situation so that you will flourish in all that you do in Jesus name.
Hatred is a killer even the world is fully aware. They make statements
like ‘Hatred is cancerous’ it is carrying of unnecessary luggage’ blah blah
In the Church people say stuff like, ‘Faith works through love so hatred
blocks you out of the Realm of faith and pushes you into the realm of fear’.
Also since you can not Receive anything from God without Faith,
hatred will prevent you from enjoying God’s blessings,Basically hatred
prevents you from a lot of things.
Hatred is hatred no matter who you have it towards.
Many Christians have carried this unnecessary luggage by Hating the devil.
This is very evident as all they do is binding, casting out, destroy!
Die, die, die!. Instead of Lord i bless you, Jesus i love you, Father i
bless you. E.t.c.
This has prevented them from enjoying God’s love and experiencing His
Blessing,(check out these kinds of people they are usually,broke and stagnant)
God said be not ‘unaware’ of not give full attention to the devil.
Don’t cheat yourself(2cor 2:11). there is enough depth in the Love of God,
You are blessed!
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!
The State of your spirit determines:
Many Christians quote ‘out of our belly (spirit) shall flow rivers of living water’ but rivers of living water flows out only from a developed spirit!
The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he wills Pro 21:1(ESV).
Yes, we have been made kings and priests to our God but an heir as long as he is a child is seen in the spirit as a slave, Gal 4:1 now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all (NKJV).
Every Christian is a conductor/ channel of Divine electricity but the amount of power they can be let out is directly proportional to level of their spirit. This is why no matter how good a socket is, it is cannot give out more electricity than what its capacity can hold. The electricity in a High tension wire is furthermore way massive compared to what is in a socket.
This is why some of us are doing great exploits and others are doing little or nothing; this can be simply explained by looking at electrical channels. The current that can flow out of socket is not as high as that from a High-tension wire. In fact from what we have discovered on how God chooses, we can freely say that once one’s spirit has been developed to a good level one can work in great power of God and achieve extraordinary results in respect to that level, Selah!
This is the secret behind man used to do Great thing by God. Besides, it is only when something is full that it can even emit freely (Rivers of living water).
This is the mystery behind why the shadow of peter could heal and cast out demons, for the reason that the spirits of the apostles were developed and as such, power emanated out of their spirit into their bodies. That is why clothes wiped with their bodies could generate divine results; the woman with the issue of blood is a perfect example of this to prove this theory.
And a woman who had a flow of blood twelve years (who had spent all her living on physicians, and could not be healed by any)
came behind Him and touched the border of His garment. And instantly her flow of blood was staunched.
And Jesus said, Who touched Me? And all having denied, Peter and those with Him said, Master, the crowd presses and jostles You, and You say, Who touched Me?
And Jesus said, Someone has touched Me, for I know that power has gone out of Me
Luk 8:43 -46(MKJV)
Even the dead bones of Elisha still had residual emanated power from his spirit in it and the current was enough to raise a dead man.
And it came to pass, as they were burying a man, that, behold, they spied a band of men; and they cast the man into the sepulchre of Elisha: and when the man was let down, and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived, and stood up on his feet. 2Ki 13:21(KJV)
Wow! This is truly amazing. If the body of one who God’s spirit did not reside permanently in could do this, imagine we in whom His spirit lives. Give God’s spirit the free hand to brood over your spirit.
The major difference between a christian and any other religious person is not that He/she now has a big guy(Jesus) who they can always call on when they are in trouble, it is that they are Supernatural men while others are just mere men and in fact the christian is the big guy the non believer should run to when in trouble
