Break The Circle of Adversities  

Break The Circle of Adversities  

victory faith bringsIt just dawned on me that this season last year was characterized by negatives. I was assailed on all fronts. Bad things happened to my family, friends and me.

It was a well orchestrated attack from the pit of hell.

It was likr Job’s situation. Anywhere I turned, it was bad news. I felt so alone, oppressed, dejected and caged-in.  It was a horrible experience.

It stopped when I turned the searchlight inwards. I cried out to God for help and asked for spiritual reinforcements.

I examined myself whether I was still in  the faith. I explored all avenues in order to locate the security breach. What had opened the door to allow so much demonic activity against me? What had made me so vulnerable?

Twas then I discovered anger, resentment and unforgiveness.

Even though my anger was justified, I was nursing it and it gave room for resentment and its relatives to come into my realm of existence.

The battle turned in my favor when  I forgave all unconditionally.

I chose to let go the right to be angry. I humbled myself,  made peace with everyone and set boundaries that kept away toxic people from polluting my mind.

After which I  launched out in spiritual warfare against the forces of evil influencing the persecution and resultant adversity. As soon as tackled it spiritually, peace,  progress and prosperity  came into play.

Then about the same season this year, a similar situation began to happen. But the root cause was not anger this time.

Bad news kept coming from everywhere.

Then it dawned on me that the old Serpent was up to his old tricks again. He was looking both for attention and for whom to devour.

The attack this year was indirectly against me. He went after my adult children. And thus got to me.

After touching home-base with ABBA in prayer, I quickly kicked the devil and his demons out! And went into intercession for my family.

What happened? It almost caught me off guard! This attack came when I least expected it.

I was in repose.

Soldiers are always at alert even while on vacation. This song came to mind :

Christian seek not yet repose,

Hear thy guardian angel say,

Thou art in the midst of foes, 

Watch and pray.” 

The devil is going about seeking for who to devour. We are to resist him by being steadfast in faith.

We are in a war dear friends. We are to be constantly at alert. The devil is a malignant foe. Even while resting, we are to be watchful.

But for the grace of God, the devil would have dealt me a fatal blow. But glory be to the Holy Spirit who made me groan with words that could not be uttermed

I travailed in prayers and prevailed.

What about you.?
What are those troubles that are recycling against you? Break the circle today.

You’ve got to identify the trend and confront them in order to overcome them.

One thing I can tell you is that my next year will definitely be better than this year. I’m moving forward victoriously. I have given myself over to fasting, prayers and searching of the scriptures in order to line up my life to Biblical truths.

And I am praying more for my family than before. I pray for their spiritual growth. They have to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Savior Jesus Christ.

It is not enough that they are born again. They have to be growing and active in the faith.

A growing Christian is a moving target and moving targets are not easy to get down.

The lessons in these recurring afflictions have been learned. Even though the process of learning was painful but it was productive.

We are sealed by the Holy Spirit, therefore no room for similar occurrences next seasons. Glory be to God.

Be wise my friends.
Be aware of what is going on in your life. Confront adverse situations and circumstances. Make them line up with God’s Word.

It is God’s wish that your spirit, soul and body, prospers and be in health.

Remember also that HE causes all things to work together for the good of them that love Him and who are the called according to His purpose.

If you are born again, then that means you.

But if you are not born again simply Acknowledge that you need Jesus Christ to come into your life and save you.

 Believe  in your heart that He died in your  place and rose again from the dead

Confess with your mouth what you believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord and you shall be saved.

 Let us Pray 

Thank You ABBA for the entrance of your Word that has brought light and understanding to our souls

We receive your salvation, healing, deliverance and prosperity in Jesus mighty name.

We also receive your intervention in our present situations  and circumstances: and affirm that you have caused all things to work together for our good, in Jesus Christ matchless name.

We declare that affliction will not come again. We grow in grace and we also rightly apply Biblical Truths to our Realities.  Amein.

The Process of my Deliverance 

fb_img_1503667288217517429303.jpgResist, Persist, and Proclaim your victory.

Dear friend let me share with you how GOD enabled me to deal with unrelenting issues and demons on assignment. My ancestry was plagued with various issues ranging from islamism, occultism, idolatry and religiosity which resulted in curses as well as personality, psychosomatic and genetic disorders.  Including so many other issues which tormented me, until I realized my  rights as a BELIEVER- the ‘born again child of GOD’!

I began to ‘work-out’ my salvation!

If Christ has ‘delivered’ me from the power of darkness why then should I be ‘demoned’ as in being tormented, oppressed, manipulated, controlled/influenced by forces beyond my control?

Why was it that after I became empowered to become a child of GOD, my biological genetic issues continued to manifest?

These and many other questions I wrestled with and found the answers in the Bible!

I discovered that humans operate in 3 realms of existence – spiritual, soulical and physical.

When you get born again, the spirit is reborn and fellowship with GOD is initiated.

When the spirit man controls the soul and body, one would enjoy peace and harmony.

But the issue is that the ‘reborn spirit’ is a baby that needs to be fed and nourished by Bible Doctrines before it can rule over the soul and body!!!

Though I was reborn from above, I was a soulish and carnal Christian. My spirit was underdeveloped and  undernourished.

But my soul was being fed pollutants through my body. I was not of the world but was dominated by the world’s ideologies and beliefs.
The things I wanted to do, I could not and I did things I did not want to do, because my spirit was weak and suffering from malnutrition!

The food of the spirit is the Word of God – Bible Doctrines!

My spirit lacked Bible Doctrines and my soul and body was feeding well off worldly principles which informed my thoughts and behavioral patterns.  And thus allowed  demons re-entry into my world! I was in the scenario Christ described in Matthew 12;43-45  which states :
43″Now when the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and does not find it. 44″Then it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came’; and when it comes, it finds it unoccupied, swept, and put in order. 45″Then it goes and takes along with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. That is the way it will also be with this evil generation.”

So you see my friend, the demons left when i got ‘reborn’ but my evil life style gave them access  into my world.  Then they reinforced their perimeter by inviting more malevolent demons to join them to accomplish mission -‘Kill, steal and destroy’.

My situation got worse after I got born again and worst when I got into Christian ministry. Because my lifestyle was attracting demon activity.

Am being real here.
You need to  know  that unless you change your lifestyle to reflect your Christianity, things would get worse  before it can ever get better.

Don’t give up!
Work out your salvation/deliverance. The demon hordes may get more virulent. You must get more determined to live above them in Christ Jesus.

It’s a mind game

Satan is already a defeated foe.

But you have to do some soul-searching to isolate whatever is attracting demon-activity and the resultant negatives you are experiencing in your circumstances.

Ironically, When I had my issues, I blamed everybody blame-able for my challenges! I never saw me as being the issue!

My body and soul were in a power tussle. The lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life dominated my sensibilities! My eyes were feeding my soul all manner of evils: because I watched wrong television programs and read wrong books.

In my quest for knowledge,  I read all manner of books- from romantic novels, crime, Lopsa Rampa / eastern religious books.

Worst still, I dabbled into the occult. I had kabbala books of magic as well as other occult materials. I got into spiritism and spiritualism and other negative spiritual activity. I was into the occult big-time in the pursuit knowledge. I also wanted  answers to the questions tormenting my soul.

My ears too actively participated on opening my soul to torment through the kind of music I listened. The wrong kind of music  fed my soul more evils to work work with.

I was addicted to reggae, afro-juju, afro-rock, and  hard Rock etc.

My ears  received and fed my soul and my mind processed it all and out of the fullness of my heart my mouth spake -NEGATIVES- curses, swear words etc.

In my counseling ministry, the hardest people to work with are the ‘know it all’s’
They know the Bible cover to cover but to no profit.. They get very argumentative and I let them be because they still have options. When they exhaust all options, they would be well positioned to ‘work out their salvation’.

I was once like that, I could recite the psalms by rote because of my ‘religious’ upbringing.

I had head knowledge of the the Bible. But my spirit did not benefit from such head knowledge. And thus it was malnourished.

But my soul and body were well-fed: My malnourished spirit was no match for my well fed soul and body. Because my spirit was in a weakened state, it had no control over my soul and body. And the war raged for dominance.

That situation made me very prone to demon attacks  And the demons had a field day. They took advantage of my carnality and plagued me with all manner of evils: Until by God’s grace, I came to myself. I cried out to Christ the Ultimate deliverer.

Then Realization hit me.

I got dissatisfied with the status quo!

I desired a change. The torment, the recycling of problems and downward trends  had to end!

I needed to make progress.
Then again I called out to GOD for mercy.
One of my favorite prayer then was ‘GOD please help me, am tired’.

Things did not just change by fiat!
But the process of Deliverance or change began with my full participation and cooperation.
Amein.

First I had to accept responsibility.
Even though it is true that my heredity was not the best, and my environment exposed me to those who took advantage and did bad things to me: the greater Truth is  I got born again!

In Christ Jesus, GOD gave me a new beginning!!A new heritage!!! A New Identity! The past was gone!
You  may have been born into a ‘poor, black, nation, family’ or whatever!
That was in the past!!

As long as you are in Christ Jesus,  DAD owns the world! You are HIS heir with Christ the Savior of the​ world!!! You are Spirit filled, blood washed, redeemed, justified, declared righteous, an extraordinary supernatural being, the poem of GOD!
You are somebody special!

I take back my space from the devil!!!! Get off my case satan!

I came to realize that no one but myself was to blame for my condition. Instead of resisting the devil, I gave him my space and he came in with my permission through my lifestyle and character and settled in!!!!

Timeout devils!!!!! You no longer have space in my realm of existence!!!!!!

Like the prodigal, I considered my options and decided to ‘recommit’ my life to God’.

As scripture states in Isaiah 30:15 :
“In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength”,

Therefore,  I returned to GOD in repentance, and my strength got renewed.

Repentance is work!

Repentance involves action/activity!
It involves all the faculties of the soul and body!

With God’s enabling grace, all the books had to go and the reading habit changed. I made a bonfire of them. by

I began a tour of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation for the first time in my life!
Try it! You’ll be amazed at how ‘alive’ the Bible is.

I also started buying books by Christian writers- I love reading!

My music changed! All those mind polluting and demon attracting meaningless songs were replaced with Gospel, soul stirring, spirit lifting, inspiring with thought provoking and faith building lyrics.
I love music- we are a family of singers and musicians.

Television and the Big screen were affected also. It required discipline, determination and selfless commitment. It was not easy, but it was and is doable.

I had to take my ‘walk’ with GOD to another level and that involved attending regular fellowship with other Believers, which meant I had to ‘commit’ to a ‘church family’, as well as Join a service department in church.

I submitted to the ‘spiritual authority’ of the pastor and of course had to go through the ‘New Believers’ class/foundation school, got re-baptized(I chose to), went through school of discipleship etc.

Whatever was needful to take me out of the quagmire I got myself into, I was willing to do so!
Even though I got born again and Spirit-filled, my spirit man was underdeveloped.

My first major crisis after my rebirth was the death of my mother in 1972 when I was a teenager. It was a very traumatic experience for me. My grief and search for vengeance disabled my faith in GOD.

I did love GOD and grew up knowing I was a chosen vessel, but that did not stop my wrong choices.

I blamed my mother’s death on my paternal family and swore to avenge her death. I lost control and the demons regained control!
I cut off everyone, and left off my Christian community because they preached forgiveness. They counseled me to leave vengeance to God! I was too bitter to heed their counsel.

The devil took advantage of my unforgiveness, bitterness and grief and I reverted to ‘unsaved’ mode.

Those dark years lasted for as long as I allowed it.

As I stated earlier, my deliverance involved a complete turn around in all the faculties of my soul – my will/volition; my mind/intellect; my emotion/feeling had to change.

How I used my physical senses of  sight, mouth, hearing, feeling and smell  had to change also, so as to reflect my NEW nature in Christ .

When the positive spiritual controls the  soul, the soul would control the body, and  character transformation would become evident!

As I started receiving Bible doctrines into my Soul, my thought pattern began to change.
My  mindset/mental attitude changed. My priorities changed as well.

Forgiveness and peace flooded my soul.
My life’s focus became God, and the doing of HIS will. Which was easy because as Bible states:
” it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure” Philippians 2:13.

I had issues with ill-health – asthma, terrible allergy issues, weight loss, volatile temper, ulcers, etc.

I had to unlearn lots of self-defeating attitudes and character traits.

It was a deliverance process which I was determined to follow through!

I remember I submitted to deliverance ministrations once but it was too abusive – the hitting, pushing, turning and shouting I could not accept. I could not relate it with the GOD I had come to know.
Deep in me, I knew deliverance had to be better than all that pushing, shouting and shoving.

Now I know for sure. That deliverance from demons etc is by the Word of God.

As I pondered why some of my issues continued – especially the dream-state sex abuse by evil spirits, with its consequent marital issues, this scripture came alive in my spirit:
‘ whatsoever is born of God is victorious over the world, this is the victory that has overcome the world, even my faith”! 1John 5:4

That verse have had tremendous impact in my life and ministry. It became my ‘mantra’ and I confessed it like this:
“I Hephzibah I’m born of GOD. My dreams, goals and aspirations etc are born of GOD. Therefore, am victorious over- failures, sex in the dream, demonic oppressions, satan’s targeting, witchcraft manipulations, occult projections, family curses, ancestral yokes and burdens, single parenting, failed marriages, wickedness in high places, anger, bitterness etc.”

I confessed the Word over all my challenges, afflictions and character deficits!

Every day, I persevered in prayers as if my life depended on it. Every manifested evil in my family came under the hammer of the Word! I crushed them to pieces!!!! It was warfare.

From midnight to 6 am  daily, I would be in prayers, my prayer ministry was birthed in those days. I prayed all manner of prayers. And the power of GOD came mightily upon me.
Demons ran out of my orbit.
The fire-power was too much for them.

If you are not praying the WORD then you are without spiritual weapons.

Such much power is released at the place of prayer.
As the warfare raged, I would pray for all my children and siblings: mentioning them by name and claiming them for Christ. As I battled in prayer over all my families known challenges, their circumstances changed as well.

Brethren, the Word works and GOD answers prayers.

Deliverance without the Word, prayers and Godly living is an exercise in futility.

Today, we are a living testimony that through Prayer, faith in GOD, receiving and applying of Bible doctrines and with the Help of the Holy Spirit: those unrelenting spirit, soul and body ‘issues’ will be CURED!

Prayer:

ABBA Father, I bring before your Throne of mercy all those who are experiencing a string of bad outcomes as well as those who are being sexually violated by demons.

In the matchless name of Jesus Christ  I declare them loosed from the holds of those evil spirits and oppression.

I bind the forces of evil to never go near them again.

Thank You Father for the liberty we have in Christ Jesus who went a out doing good.

We pull down strongholds and demolish all arguments that is hindering people from advancing in their relationship with God.

Glory be to You Holy God for separating us to You as Holy and untouchables to the forces of evil.

Continue to work in us both to will and to do of your good pleasure, in Christ JESUS matchless name. Amein.

Shalom.

Process Your Deliverance 

Your deliverance is not in the hands of Deliverance ministers. It is in the Word of God.

God sent His Word to heal save, deliver and prosper us. Confront your issues.
I was privileged to serve in a deliverance ministry that specialized in beating demons out of people.
The deliverance ministers were very violent and demon conscious. Every person who had problems were demonized. And were treated as such.
During deliverance sessions, people were turned around until they become dizzy and fall down. During the turning around process, names of demons would be called out and told to leave.
Some People got delivered. But it was a very scary process.
Many people are still going through horrible experiences in a bid to be delivered.

The Good News is that God sent His Word to save, heal, deliver and prosper us.
Deliverance is a done deal. And like salvation, it is received by faith in Christ Jesus.
The Born again child of God is, ‘delivered from the domain of darkness and transported into God’s Kingdom of light, the day you received Christ into your life.

Deliverance is both an accomplished fact and an ongoing process as pointed out by Apostle Paul in the scripture which states:
”… who delivered us from so great a peril of death, and will deliver us, He on whom we have set our hope. And He will yet deliver us,” 2 Corinthians 1:10.

In the past Christ manifested and accomplished our salvation, healings and Deliverance. Done deal!

But all of the above must be appropriated to be effective. You have to receive it by faith. You have to work out your deliverance by applying scriptures to your reality.

Deliverance or Spiritual therapy, is a process whereby we appropriate the victory of the cross in our daily living by confronting our reality with the truth of GOD’s Word that we have received.

The process of Deliverance is like going into therapy, that is, Bible Based and Christ Centered Therapy.

Casting out demons is the least important procedure in deliverance.

The major procedure in deliverance is the feeding of your soul with the Word of God and living a Godly lifestyle. You won’t need to cast the demons out, they will run out. Two cannot walk together unless they are in agreement.

The reason the demons feel at home in and around you is because you are demon friendly. Your lifestyle has created a conducive habitat for them.

Once your mental attitude/mindset changes to reflect your born again status, demons can’t stay.
Stop believing old wives tales. Search the scriptures.

Deliverance is a process because revelation is progressive, and the understanding of spiritual truths is not by fiat.
The more you study, ingest and metabolize Bible Doctrine, the more your spirit, soul and body will be saturated with Divine power, and the more the light shines in you and the darkness in your soul disappears!

The Truth of GOD’s Word that you know and apply is the Truth that will set you free.

The Truth is that Christ died for our salvation, those who Believe and receive the word are saved!
Salvation like deliverance and healing is a done deal but many are still in bondage today because they have not caught the revelation in that area of their life.
Your deliverance is in the Word of God you know and apply.

In the particular area that you apply the Truth of the WORD, it is that day that you get delivered from that particular issue!

From today BEHAVE what you believe.

What area of your life still need the Truth of GOD’s Word.
Search the scriptures and do away with fables and let the glorious light of the GOSPEL shine into your heart.
Shalom! Hephzibah Christly

The Better than yoga exercise for Christians

Yoga is not a Christian form of meditation. Any Christian who practices any form of yoga is deviating from the Christian discipline.  And by doing yoga  you would also be  activating demon spirits who would eventually access your life to cause troubles.

But this Christian form of meditation which is shared with you here:  would keep  you demons free, delivered, victorious and fruitful in righteousness.

Step 1: Choose a quiet spot where you won’t be distracted :Take your Bible, sit down and read a chapter.

Step 2: Still sitting :Close your eyes. Bow down your head in worship. With your elbows on your laps, entwine your fingers and rest your fore head or wrap your hands round your body in an embrace.

Step 3: Let the Words you read from your Bible flow through your mind.

Step 4: Go down on your knees. Lift your holy hands towards heaven and gently away from side to side.

Step 4: Let gratitude flood your soul and flow out through your mouth in songs of praise to God for all your challenges and blessings. Extol God with high praise.
(10mins)

Step 5: In that same mood, open your mouth and speak blessings over your families, friends, church, community, country: and salvation for the unsaved. Make Prophetic Declarations (10mins)

Step 6: Now you can pour out your heart to God. Express yourself freely. You are in the Throne Room. Share your joys, pains, disappointments, expectations – everything troubling your mind with Him. Ask Him whatever you need. Just upload all your problems (take all the time you need).

Step 7: Sit still. Be quiet and confident. And listen to God’s Word that will come to you in your spirit. Have a pen and paper handy to write it all down.

Step 8: Arise! Strengthened, energized, invigorated, empowered healed and filled afresh with the Holy Spirit.

Christianity involves living a life of faith in God, discipline as well as manifesting the fruits of righteousness. It is therefore important that you do this at least once daily for better results.
Shalom from your Spiritual Warfare Strategist – Hephzibah Christly

YOUR CHANGE IS COME

amazing-things-happenDear Sisters in CHRIST, your past may be a chronicle of wrong choices, rejection, abuses, disappointments and abandonment by the Fathers of your children. I am telling you today that “Your change is come”.GOD is faithful. HE will not allow you to go beyond your threshold of pain. HE knows your pain and can translate it to gain. You just have to make up your mind to go his way. Then HIS enabling grace will help you change your lifestyle and relationships.

GOD loves you. HE says in His Word that:

“I have loved you with an everlasting love;

Therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness.

“Again I will build you and you will be rebuilt, O virgin of Israel! Again you will take up your tambourines,

And go forth to the dances of the merrymakers” (Jeremiah 31: 3; NASB)

You are the object of God’s love. HE promises to build your life up again. HE wants you to turn back to HIM and to turn back from pursuing your lovers. They end up hurting you as much as you lust after them.

GOD is love. In HIS love for you, HE gave you the ability to make choices. HE will not violate your free will.  You have the ability to make a choice today that would either transform or deform your life.

The right choice is for you to invite CHRIST into your life. For without Christ in your life, your life will be full of crises. But when you surrender your life to Christ, HE works in you both to will and to do of GOD’s good pleasure.

You can do yourself a world of good today by asking GOD to help you and deliver you from yourself.

Our greatest enemy is the “self”. It is a misconception to think that the devil is our greatest foe. Of course he is an unrelenting foe, but he is already defeated. It is CHRIST who leads us in triumph over him.

But with the self as the enemy, the battle rests with us. The onus is on the Believer to ‘mortify’ the deeds of the human sinful nature.

The Bible puts it this way:

We have an obligation, but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God” (Romans 8:12, 13; BSB)

In order to live life according to GOD’s design, we die to the self.

But if the self is allowed to rule us by our emotions, death would be calling out to us.

I was once in that exact place. I was so full of me, mine and myself. So much so that I even contemplated suicide.

But GOD’s mercy kept me from taking my life.

My life was one big shame, disgrace, hurts pains and abuses. I lost my self-esteem and self-worth. I was ridiculed, misunderstood, rejected, and abandoned. I became hopeless, homeless, jobless, sick and hungry. I was a single parent and full of self-pity. Eventually, I was all alone. Nothing and no one was there for me. But for GOD’s love, I would have been completely lost.

GOD’s love kept me. His voice became the only voice I heard. That downward trend would have continued. But GOD the Holy Spirit made me realize that my life was going south.  It was then and I cried out to GOD for help. I reached out for His loving arms and HE wrapped it round me. HE holds me in His warm embrace. HE promised to be with me till the end of the age. And He did keep His promises.

Wherever you are at, The All-Loving God is reaching out to you as HE did to me.

I was in a terrible state but GOD mercifully intervened and put my life back on course.

Sisters and you who is reading this today, GOD is not finished with you. He loves you and is looking out for the opportunity to turn your life around. All you need do is call out to HIM. Invite Him into your situation. And He will answer you speedily.

HE says in HIS Word through Isaiah that:

“In returning and rest you shall be saved: In quietness and confidence shall be your strength” (Isaiah 30: 15).

To return to GOD involves repentance.

True repentance means that you have to turn around from the way you think, feel and act and begin to go GOD’s way. You begin to think, feel and act in accordance with GOD’s standard. Only then will you find rest for your soul.

Your strength to go on in life will be restored when your focus is GOD and not the self, people or things.

Humans are incapable of meeting your spiritual, emotional, financial or physical needs. Only GOD can. It is true that God designed our sexual needs to be met by the opposite sex. But then, if seek to fulfil our sexual desires outside of marriage, it most often results in hurts and disappointments.

To continue to pursue the love of humans or things is to court disaster. Most often it pushes towards risky and promiscuous behavior such as prostitution, drug doing and drinking of liquor. And if not quickly confronted, it would necessitate the doing of things totally out of character and outside the perimeter of our value system in order to be held in the warmth and acceptance of another, no matter how dysfunctional the circumstances might be. And the end of it all would be suicide or death from other means.

That is not the way dear friends.

JESUS is the way out of the hurts, pains, rejection, disappointment, abuses, homelessness, economic hardship, emotional torment, sicknesses and diseases.

I am a living testimony that in CHRIST JESUS, rejection becomes acceptance; disgrace translates to more grace; frustration becomes fulfillment; abandonment become appreciation, shame become fame, etc.

Jesus Christ turned my life around. HE turned my mourning into dancing and lifted my sorrows. HE restored hope in me. He poured out HIS love into my heart and I stopped hating. HE will do same for you.

CHRIST JESUS also transforms personality. A nympho/pervert gets healed to become a care giver. A condemned prisoner converts and becomes a prisoner of hope. A murderer becomes a missionary. A prostitute stands the chance of becoming a proclaimer of the Gospel.

There is no end to how far the Love of GOD would go to build up lives once HE is put into the picture.

I speak over you now:

I proclaim that your life is being  built up to glorify GOD.  You will greatly rejoice in God for He will cover you with His robe of righteousness just as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. Your Change is come. You will sing a new song my friend. I declare that those who hated you will be attracted to HIS glory in your life. You will be radiant. You have become a burning and a shining light in your generation, in CHRIST loving name.

Read what GOD’s Word is saying to you:

 “Therefore, the LORD will wait, that HE may be gracious to you; Therefore HE will be exalted, that HE may have mercy on you. For the LORD is a GOD of justice. Blessed are those who wait for HIM” (Isaiah 30:18)

GOD will not violate your freewill, so invite HIM into your life today. He wants to be gracious to you. He wants to convert your disgrace to great grace. People treated you mercilessly. Perhaps like me you were physically, emotionally and sexually violated.

GOD wants to surround you with mercy. His mercy will shield you from mean and worthless people who want to prey on your loving nature. Exalt HIM today by inviting HIM to takeover and make-over your life.

GOD bless you and speedily intervene in your life, in CHRIST matchless name.

BEWARE GHOSTS ARE DEMONS IN DISGUISE

demons and ghosts

“There shall not be found among you … one that useth divination, a soothsayer, or an enchanter, or a sorcerer, or a charmer, or one that consulteth a ghost or a familiar spirit, or a necromancer. For whosoever doeth these things is an abomination unto the LORD” (See Deut.18:10-12; JPS Tanakh 1917).

Ghosts are demon spirits who are familiar with a particular environment or family. Because they have been in that family or environment far longer than even the humans, they are ‘familiar’ with the history of the family and the environment as well, and so are able to mimic the person(s) they disguise/masquerade as.

Do not be ignorant of satan’s devices nor allow yourself to be taken in by his lies.“People are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6)

What you fear will always torment you but what you confront will disappear.

Stop listening to lies from the pit of hell that those ghosts haunting your house are your dead relatives. Instead of further compounding your problems by going to mediums, seek out the truth about your issues from the Word of God.

satan takes advantage of people’s ignorance in order to victimize them. Refuse to be preyed upon. You have the victory in Christ Jesus already. He gave you the power over the forces of evil.

God’s Word says,

“Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you.” (See Luke 10:19)

Confront the demons behind the ghosts and command them to leave at once.

You have to understand and realize that, “Every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith” (See 1 John 5:4).

Satan runs a parallel government against God, which is known as the “kingdom of darkness” (See Colossians 1:13)

Even though satan is wise, he is not the Omniscient that God is. Therefore, he counterfeits everything in the kingdom of God in order to deceive the saints into false worship.

One of such counterfeit is the ‘unholy ghosts’ which is a cheap imitation of God’s Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost, as some interpreters have it.

satan’s demon spirits masquerade as ghosts (unholy ghosts) in order to torment, oppress, intimidate, manipulate and control humans; as a means of accomplishing his mission to “to steal, kill and destroy” them (See John 10:10).

It will be helpful for you to understand that demons are bodiless evil spirits. Because of their affinity with humans, they seek to possess the human body where possible, or live in close proximity to humans when possession is not possible.

That is why as unholy ghosts and the devil’s agents on assignment, they haunt either abandoned or inhabited homes as well as other places where humans visit or congregate.

The Bible warns us to:

“Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour” (See 1 Peter 5:8).

We are to “Stand firm against him, and be strong in our faith” (See 1 Peter 5:9).

People suffer unnecessarily because of ignorance. satan takes advantage of people’s ignorance to torment, oppress, possess, depress, control, intimidate, and manipulate them.

But when you know and understand that the devil is at the back of every evil, you would stand firm against him with your shield of faith, to confront and unmask him in defeat.

WARFARE PRAYER:

ABBA Dad, thank You for the gift of your Holy Spirit who lives in us and works with us.

We plead the speaking blood of Christ over our homes and stand against the forces of evil that are intruding into our lives and homes.

We confess as sin disobedience, the bringing in of cursed objects into our homes, occult involvement such as consulting with mediums, channellers, diviners, and necromancers. As well as other related sinful activities.

We know that you are faithful and just to forgive and cleanse us from every unrighteousness, in accordance with your Word. (See John 1:9)

We ask Fatherc that you conduct a search and point us to any object(s) or person(s) who links these foul spirits to us.

We sever our ties to all such objects and persons and reaffirm our faith in you our God and Father.

We command all evil spirits to get off our lives and property now to the feet if Christ, and never come back under any guise or disguise; to torment, oppress, depress,intimidate, vex manipulate, control or obsess us.

We are God’s Children and have no communion with satan and the forces of evil. We refuse to give liberties to satan in our world.

Our homes belong to God and by this prayer we consecrate everything we are and own to the Almighty God in CHRIST name.

We are holy unto God and therefore nothing unholy can come near us.

Thank You ABBA Dad for perfecting all that concerns us and setting us apart for Your use, in Christ’s name we pray, Amein.

UNFORGIVENESS

forgiveness not always easy

“Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.” (Colossians 3:13; NLT.)

I can remember how much I struggled with unforgiveness. People had hurt me so much. Many took advantage of my kindheartedness. A great number repaid me evil for all the good I had done them. There was no one there for me when I needed support. They were all judging and condemning for all my mistakes. But when they made theirs, I was there for them.

I was hurting so badly I got sick. The bitterness in the inside of me was corrosive. It was eating me up. I lost focus of my goals and concentrated on my hurts. You guessed it. Things got worse!

Does that sound familiar?

Unforgiveness is the holding of a grudge against somebody.

“And to hold a grudge is to have a strong feeling of anger and dislike for a person who you feel has treated you badly”

forgiveness no grudges

Forgiveness is a Divine Command. But alas! Many of us Christians struggle with the inability to forgive others. Forgiveness is a grace from GOD. And the grace that GOD has freely given to us we must learn to extend to others.

Unforgiveness is at the root cause of major psychosomatic disorders. Plainly put, Unforgiveness makes one sick spiritually, psychologically and physically.

A person who harbors unforgiveness cannot enjoy the grace of forgiveness from GOD. When a person goes about bristling with anger and resentment, others will keep off as well.

Unforgiveness is counterproductive for it hurts the unforgiving: It restricts them from receiving GOD’s forgiveness. And without GOD’s forgiveness, they will collapse under the weight of their own sins. Sin apart from being destructive, is the major open-door for demon activity.

GOD says in HIS Word that:

“… If you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions(Matthew 6:14, 15).

Forgiveness attracts forgiveness, while unforgiveness attracts unforgiveness.

In John 8:1-11 is the story of the woman caught in adultery. Her accusers caught her in the very act and dragged her to CHRIST. There was no question about it. The lady was guilty as charged. But then, the only difference between her and her accusers was that they sinned different. But they conveniently forgot their own sins and persisted she be judged according to the law.

But CHRIST the Righteous Judge had to make them look inwards before judging her. So HE said to them: “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!”(John 8:7). After proper self-evaluation, her accusers realized they were no better than her: “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of GOD” (Romans 3:23). And so they slipped away and left her alone with CHRIST the Redeemer and forgiver of all sins. CHRIST forgave, set her free and told her to sin no more. Glory is to GOD!

Unforgiveness is a defense mechanism a Christian should never have. It is alien to Christianity.

Dictionary.com defines Defense Mechanism (n.) as : “any of a variety of usually unconscious mental processes used to protect oneself from shame, anxiety, loss of self-esteem, conflict, or other unacceptable feelings or thoughts, and including behaviors such as repression, projection, denial, and rationalization

The Unforgiving Christian is a selfish and self-centered person who is full of crap. And who refuses to confront issues but hides behind the faults of others in a bid to hide their own identity issues.

Basically, unforgiveness points to a lack of spiritual self-esteem.

When you know who you are in CHRIST, the grace that you have received by virtue of your relationship with CHRIST, you can never be unforgiving.

In chapter 18 of Matthew’s gospel is the story of the king who while updating his account discovered a debtor with a huge debt. And when he couldn’t settle his debts, the king ordered him, his wife, kids and all his properties sold to offset his debt. But when the debtor pleaded for an extended period of grace to pay up his debt; the king, filled with pity, not only signed his release, but forgave him his debt.

You would think that having enjoyed such an amazing grace, the debtor would be gracious to his debtors as well. But rather unfortunately he was not gracious at all. He was his old vindictive and vengeful self.

When the forgiven debtor left the kings’ presence, he went to a man who owed about a fraction of what he had owed the king. He grabbed him by the throat and demanded immediate payment. But of course, that was unrealistic. If the man could, he would have paid up his debt before then. Even though he pleaded for a period of grace to enable him pay, his creditor would have none of that! Instead, he had the man arrested and jailed until the debt would be repaid!

Heartless! You might say, but rather unfortunately, most unregenerate humans are like that. And we as Believers should never be like that ever again.

That is not the end of the story. The man’s friends went to the king and rehearsed what had happened to him. You can imagine how anger would have welled up in the king. He sent for the inconsiderate and wicked fella whom he had forgiven and said to him:

“You evil – hearted wretch! Here I forgave you all that tremendous debt, just because you asked me to — shouldn’t you have mercy on others, just as I had mercy on you?’ “Then the angry king sent the man to the torture chamber until he had paid every last penny due. So shall my heavenly Father do to you if you refuse to truly forgive your brothers” (Matthew 18:32-35; TLB).

Read the full story in Matthew 18:21-35.

Unforgiveness begets unforgiveness.

The Bible is very emphatic about ‘seed-time and harvest’ (Genesis 8:22). The principle runs through the Bible. And it is the Principle of ‘sowing and reaping’ which states that: “You reap what you sow”.

In Galatians 6, GOD says to us:

“You should not be misled. Remember that you can’t ignore GOD and get away with it. You will always reap what you sow! Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful desires, will harvest the consequences of decay and death. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit” (Galatians 6:7-8; NLT).

There is no running away from it. If you do no

forgive seventy times seven

t forgive, you won’t be forgiven as well. The Principle of Forgiveness requires that “you forgive others for as many times as they wrong you” (Matthew 18:21, 22.) Because if you don’t, the devil will take advantage of the resident evil that unforgiveness is, to torment, oppress, intimidate and frustrate your Divine destiny. In addition, to the above, unforgiveness facilitates psychosomatic disorders.

Medical science has connected some sicknesses to the state of the mind. It points to how the thought life affects the functions of the body causing it to malfunction. Biblically, we are told that “a person is what he/she thinks” (Proverbs 23:7)

forgive anyway

Unforgiveness is a mental attitude sin; it is an ego and self-righteous, vindictive state of mind which is self-destructive for those who harbor it. Unforgiveness is an evil mindset that should be reset to reflect our relationship with CHRIST.

Although a mindset is said to be “a set of attitudes or fixed ideas that somebody has and that are often difficult to change”, the WORD of GOD is dynamo! And is capable of changing the worst mindset there ever is. But for the Word of GOD to change any mindset, the WORD has to richly dwell in the heart by faith first.

When GOD’s word is studied, ingested, and metabolized, its effect would become evident in our interpersonal relationships and other aspects of our life.

In order to fight against and overcome the mind that is set at unforgiveness, you would need to change your perspective and perception by correctly applying GOD’s Word which is Truth.

From a Biblical perspective, forgiveness is actually to your advantage whereas; unforgiveness places you at a disadvantage.

A close study of Matthew 18:34-35 and 2 Corinthians 2:10, 11 would reveal to you the following:

  1. Unforgiveness nullifies your own forgiveness; and deactivates your Divine immunity;
  2. Makes you culpable thus enabling the prosecution to reopen the charges against you;
  3. It gives the devil and the forces of evil access to your life;
  4. And makes you the target of tormenting demon spirits.

Unforgiveness is resident evil that should be evicted right now.

The dilemma of the Christian should not be whether to forgive but HOW TO FORGIVE

Shalom! -Hephzibah Christly
