SEEDS OF GREATNESS (Week 10)
* ABOVE ONLY *
The reason why Christians continually make mistakes and fail is because their spirits, which should guide them, are kept locked away in prison, so to speak. Even in our churches, the intellect has taken the throne.
Any person who shuts his spirit away and never listens to it becomes crippled in life. He becomes an easy prey to selfish and designing people. But the person who listens to his spirit is the one who climbs to the top.
Before I began to learn in 1994 how to follow the inward witness, it cost me financially. I had to borrow money to get things done,Yet God had said I would have money to loan if I would follow the inward witness. But when I began to follow it, I started rising to the top. And I’ve been rising ever since.
(Make your own confession from today’s scripture.)
I pray as we experience the warmth of the season,you and your family will remain above in Jesus name. I pray that God will provide for you this Christmas season. Heaven will supply and you will not lack what to eat,drink or put on in Jesus Christ name. Amen.

* EXAMINE YOUR LEADING *
The Word and the Spirit agree. How can you tell if it is the Spirit of God? If it is in line with the Word, then it is of the Spirit. If it is not in line with the Word, then it is not the Spirit.
I've had people tell me God was leading them to do something, and when I heard what it was, I said, "No, that's not the Spirit of God."
This is an extreme case, but it's true. I heard a story about a man, an elder in a church who once thought the Spirit of God was leading him and another woman to leave their spouses and marry one another. No! That is out of line with the Word!
The Holy Spirit does not break up homes.
The Spirit and the Word agree! The Bible is inspired by the Spirit of God. Examine your leading in the light of the Word.
I am led by the Spirit of God. I examine my leading in the light of His Word, because the Word and the Spirit agree.
I pray as we begin to wind down towards the end of the year ,God Almighty will direct you in all your decision and ways, He will not allow you to stumble or fall. He will keep you and yours in the Hollow of His hands. You will not see shame nor reproach, Evil men and women will not mislead you.You will land safely at the end of this year, and arrive safely into 2023. This week God will direct you to GREATNESS and Great things will He direct your way in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen and Amen.
SEEDS OF GREATNESS (Week 8)
* DIRECTION *
It is not for us to tell the Lord how to lead us. We are to let Him lead us any way He wants to!
But it is for us to find out from the Word of God how He does lead. And He leads, first of all, by the inward witness.
We can also see in the Book of Acts and elsewhere how at times some believers received guidance through a vision; others received guidance from an angel who appeared to them and told them certain things.
Such phenomena, however, didn't happen every day in these people's lives. They occurred once or twice in the entire lifetime of some of them. So that's not the ordinary way God leads - but He can if He wants to.
Often God is trying to bear witness with our spirit - trying to guide us - but we won't listen, because we want something spectacular, such as a vision, or an angel. But we must remember that anything God does is supernatural!
I trust in the Lord with all my heart. And I lean not to my own understanding. In all my ways I acknowledge Him, and He directs my paths.
I pray and prophesy to you in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth that this week and the rest path of this month you will not be misled and misdirected by negative person's or evil forces. God will lead and take you to your place of celebration. I see you ending this year on a fruitful note.It's a season of the BEST for the LAST. Jesus produced the BEST and Sweetest wine for the LAST. Remain expectant. Happy fruitful week ahead.
SEEDS OF GREATNESS (Week 7)
* MOUNTAINS AND VALLEYS *
I hear people talk about being in the valley, and then on the mountain, and then back in the valley again. To tell the truth about it, I don't know what they're talking about.
I've been saved since 1982, and I've never been anywhere but on the mountaintop!
You don't have to get down in the valley. People talk about their "valley experiences." I've never had any valley experiences. Oh, yes, there have been tests and trials - but I was on top of the mountain, shouting my way through it all, living above it. Praise God!
You see, those who say they're in the valleys are looking at life from the natural standpoint - from the physical. They are trying to get a spiritual answer from the physical, and you just can't do that.
Years ago, when I came among the charismatic even been an Anglican, I'd hear them talk about "going through the valley." And when I didn't know what they were talking about, they'd look at me and say, "Your time's coming!"
Thank God, it never has arrived!
No! Get off the negative and get on the positive side of life and you won't have any valleys. You'll always be on the mountaintop!
Thanks be to God, who ALWAYS causes me to triumph in Christ! I ALWAYS triumph! I live on the mountaintop!
I touch and agree with you all today and pray that God Almighty will cause you to triumph in all the test and trials that you go through this season and as the year comes to an end you will continually bask in Victory in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen and Amen.
SEEDS OF GREATNESS (Week 6)
* DON'T LET DOUBT ROB YOU *
Many times a miracle begins in a person's life, and then doubt robs him or her of the full blessing. A miracle began in the life of Peter. He was walking on the water.
But that miracle was never consummated. That miracle never came into full fruition. Why? According to Matthew 14:31, he let doubt get in.
I was preaching along this line one time, and an Assembly of God pastor said, "I understand something now that I didn't understand before. As a young preacher, there were two women in my church. Both of them had cancer of the liver. By the time they both found out about it, they each had only a few weeks to live.
"About that time, a healing evangelist came to the church. He prayed for the sick by the laying on of hands. And both women were gloriously and marvelously healed."
At the time this pastor spoke to me, fifteen or twenty years had passed since the women had been healed. Only one of them was still alive. The other had died. All her symptoms were gone for
Matthew 14:31 "And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?"
Many times a miracle begins in a person's life, and then doubt robs him or her of the full blessing. A miracle began in the life of Peter. He was walking on the water. But that miracle was never consummated. That miracle never came into full fruition. Why? According to Matthew 14:31, he let doubt get in.
I was preaching along this line one time, and an a pastor said, "I understand something now that I didn't understand before. As a young preacher, there were two women in my cause of travelling as an evangelist, Both of them had cancer, one of the breast and the other of the liver. By the time they both found out about it, they each had only a few weeks to live.
"About that time, a popular world renowned healing evangelist (Rienhard Bonke) came to the city He prayed for the sick and declared people healed and delivered. And both of this women were gloriously and marvelously healed too."
At the time this pastor spoke to me, fifteen or twenty years had passed since the women had been healed. Only one of them was still alive. The other had died. All her symptoms were gone for several months.
Then she got up at a prayer meeting and said, "I want you all to pray for me. Those symptoms of cancer have come back on me." Well, they prayed, but she let doubt get in. She grew steadily worse until she died.
I refuse to let doubt rob me of the blessings of God. I shut the door on doubt. I choose instead to believe God's Word. I act on what God's Word says about me.
I prophesy to you and your family that this week nothing will rob you of the miracles and blessings God has for you. Your breakthrough will come and tarry no more in Jesus Christ name. Amen. I see you smiling,rejoicing and testifying.
SEEDS OF GREATNESS (Week 5)
* THE DOMINANT ONE *
Galatians 5:16 "...Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh."
I learned early in my Christian life to let my spirit, my inward man, dominate my outward man. So even as a teenage boy standing alone without the fellowship of other teenagers who believed like I did, I didn't have the problems some do. If there was anyone in my Sunday school class who was saved besides me, I didn't know it. They would cuss, drink, attend,go to party, worldly dances, and they were all mixed up with one another in sexual activities. They'd say to me, "Why don't you do those things?"
First, my conscience wouldn't allow me to do those things. Also, I'd reply to them, "I'm a new creature." And they would ask, "What's a new creature?" (That pretty well proved they weren't new creatures!)
You don't need to be preached to about do's and don'ts; just let your spirit dominate you. God will enlighten you through your spirit. Let the new man on the inside be the dominant one. Don't let your body dominate you. Your body will want to keep on doing the things it's been doing, because your body hasn't been born again yet. Instead, walk by your spirit.
I walk by my spirit. I let my spirit dominate me. I let the new man on the inside be the dominant one. Therefore, I do not fulfill the lust of the flesh. I am not body-ruled; I am spirit-ruled.
I pray for you today that you will always walk in the spirit and stop gratifying the deeds of the flesh. This week will be great unto you. I prophesy Favor on your head;increase in your hands and speed to your feet. Blessings are yours now and forevermore! Amen.
SEEDS OF GREATNESS (Week 4)
* INSIDE HELP *
Acts 24:16 "And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men"
Soon after I was saved and delivered, I returned to secondary school. Now, I don't know how it happened exactly - none of my family cursed - but we had neighbors that could "cuss up a storm," and I guess I picked it up from one of them. So at school one day, I said to one of the boys, "you must be, crazy....."
The minute I said it - and I didn't know a thing about the Spirit-filled life - in my heart I said, "Oh, dear God, forgive me!" What condemned me? The Holy Spirit? No. It was my own spirit. This new creature, this new creation, this new man, doesn't talk that way.
Now, the flesh may want to continue doing some things it used to do, or talking like it used to talk, but you have to crucify the flesh. And a good way to crucify the flesh is to bring any problems right out into the open immediately.
That's what I did when I realized I had cussed. I didn't wait until I was "moved" to repent; I immediately asked the Lord to forgive me. The young man I had said it to had walked away. I found him and asked him to forgive me. He said he hadn't even noticed what I'd said; he was used to people talking that way. But I wanted to get things right with him and with God.
Confession I am a new creature in Christ. I talk like a new creature. I think like a new creature. I act like a new creature. My spirit leads me to do so. I pray that your conscience will be void of offence towards God.I pray for you this week that for your sake the heaven will kiss the earth, Divinity will manifest in your humanity. I decree Favour on your head,increase in your hands and speed to your feet. This week will unfold with your package at your disposal in Jesus Christ name amen. Blessings are yours forevermore!
SEEDS OF GREATNESS (Week 3)
* A TENDER CONSCIENCE *
(1 Timothy 4:2) Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron...
Keep a tender conscience - don't violate it - because it is your conscience, the voice of your spirit, that relates to your mind what the Spirit of God is saying to you down inside. If you don't keep a tender conscience, spiritual things will not be clear to you.
During the mid-90s, I pastored with a church and usually spent Sunday nights in the home of a dear family somewhere on Awolowo Road Ikoyi in Lagos state Nigeria, the mother of the home will always wait for me to come have diiner together with the family by 7:00pm.
She'd always have one of those old-fashioned coffee mug sitting on the dinning table while we dined, the coffee is always very hot. But I've seen her pour that hot coffee into a cup and in one gulp empty the whole cup of coffee into her mouth. The first time I saw her do it, I felt like I was burning all the way down!
How could she do that? I certainly couldn't do it. My mouth and throat are so tender, one teaspoon of hot coffee would have burned me. She couldn't do it either, to begin with. But through the years, drinking hot coffee had seared this woman's lips, mouth, and throat, until it was easy for her to drink the whole cup of hot coffee in one gulp.
The same thing can happen spiritually. Keep a tender conscience. Stop the minute you miss it and your conscience condemns you. Say, "Lord, forgive me. I missed it." Or if you need to, tell someone you have wronged, "I did wrong. Please forgive me."
I keep my conscience tender.
I pray for you all today that your conscience will not loose its bearing in the Lord,that this week will be fruitful to you,you will be productive in all your endeavors.God will help you and keep you and the family safe in Jesus Christ name. Amen and Amen.

* WHEN YOU MISS YOUR CONSCIENCE *
(1John 3:20) For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.
(21) Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.
If you’re a Christian, does the Holy Spirit condemn you if you do wrong? No. It is your spirit that condemns you. This is something we need to learn. We haven’t learned it yet, because we’ve been taught wrong.
The Holy Spirit will not condemn you. Why? Because God won’t condemn you. Study what Paul wrote in Romans 8. He asked, “Who is it that condemns? Does God condemn? No, it is God who justifies.”
Jesus said that the only sin the Holy Spirit will convict the world of is the sin of rejecting Jesus (John 16:7-9).
I’ve found that even when I've missed it, the Holy Spirit in me is the One who shows me the way out. He comforts me. He helps me. He doesn’t condemn me. So it is your conscience, the voice of your spirit that condemns you when you miss it. It is your spirit that knows the very moment when you have done wrong.
My spirit is born of God. My spirit is fed on God’s Word. My spirit is indwelled by the Holy Spirit. Therefore, it is a safe guide. When my spirit warns me of wrong, I obey it instantly. For if my heart condemns me not, then I have confidence toward God. Amen.
September is here. Our month of Taking Delivery of Our Expectations. Please pray that God will keep us as a Nation together as a family together and as a church together, for we are stronger together and United we will continue to stand in Jesus Christ name. And for you reading this today, I decree and declare that this month, Celebration and Jubilation will not cease in your life. I prophesy events that will cause you to Celebrate, I touch and agree with you that every day of this month there will be Jubilation in your home in the glorious name of Jesus Christ. Amen and Amen!

* OBEYING CONSCIENCE *
(Acts 23:1) "And Paul, earnestly beholding the council, said, 'Men and brethren, I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day".
It is interesting to go through the epistles that Paul wrote to the Church and see what he said about his conscience. He always obeyed his conscience.
Once I heard some preachers questioning one of the top evangelists in the world. They asked him, "We know God called and anointed you to stand in this ministry but is there something that you do from the natural standpoint that contributes to the success of your ministry more than any other thing?"
I listened intently to hear what he had to say. I knew he was a man of prayer, and prayer is important, but he didn't mention prayer.
He answered, "Of course, God called me to be an evangelist. But you are asking what has contributed to my success from my standpoint. And the one thing I do that has contributed to my success more than anything else is: I always instantly obey my deepest premonitions."
In other words, what this evangelist was saying was, "I always obey what my spirit tells me, what I get right down on the inside of me."
The Holy Spirit is in my spirit. He communicates with me through my spirit. My spirit has a voice. I obey what my spirit tells me - what I get down on the inside of me.
I took time to pray this morning friends of God,I asked God to help us all to be able to obey our conscience,and that we will be grateful every time we do because of the testimony that will follow after our act of obedience. Amen and Amen.
I love you all.
