    “Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them: for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.” Luke 23:34

    Jesus came with a Mind-set to forgive the world. This season we remember His spirit of the forgiveness He brought to our world. With all the pains and rejection He went through, that did not change His Mind-set for you and me.

    The cross is very significant to Christian faith. Without the cross, there is no salvation, no forgiveness from sin, no deliverance from the captivity of Satan, no healing from sickness and diseases, no inheritance of the common wealth of Zion/Israel and there will be no hope of eternity with God.

    Thank God Jesus did not change His Mind-set concerning us. That is why today, His name is above all names. His suffering took away our sufferings and sorrow. His humiliation brought grace and glory to our lives. His poverty brought riches to us. All these and much more were made possible because His Mind was focus on the assignment of the Father. John 4:34

    I know of a pastor that forgives in advance because he has set his Mind to do so. This is because he set his Mind on the forgiveness he has received from Christ ever before sinning against God. Therefore, he daily receive grace to forgive others ever before they offend him.

    Christ forgave your sins ever before we were born into this world. He died for you and me. He set His Mind to do the sacrifice we could not do for ourselves and did it on the cross. We are all born into this world to know sin without been taught. So we need forgiveness from sin and Jesus came to fulfill that. Praise God.

    The question is, as a Christian, can you forgive like Christ? It is possible through the sacrifice of Christ. You and I must appropriate the forgiveness of Christ into our Minds first. This season is the season of forgiveness. It is the period to remember and reflect on what Christ has done for us. If we truly reflect through a personal retreat, the Mind-set of forgiveness that is in Christ will live in us and it will be easy to let go of offences.

    Is it possible to also forgive others and forget the offences? Yes! Only God can truly forgive us and forget our sins in the depths of the sea. Micah 7:18-19. But as Christians, whenever we remember the offences of others to us, we are only remembering the forgiveness we have given them concerning the offence. That is the Mind-set of those who have been transformed by the forgiveness of Christ.

    Christians don’t replay offences. God does not replay our offences. He does not even ask you to explain why you did this or that. He simply as you to confess and forsake your sins. He ask you to go and sin no more.

    The forgiveness of Christ in advance, is not a license to sin. It is not eternal security. Christ did not die and forgave you your sins because He knows you are going to sin in the future. He forgave you because He knows you are a sinner.
    Christ set His Mind on this because He knew we will always need help. That is why we can go to the throne of grace with boldness as heirs of His kingdom from time to time and obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

    Live with the Mind-set of forgiveness. Remember only how you have forgiven those who offended you.

    I pray for you today, that the forgiveness that Christ accomplished for us on the Cross will be real in every life. Christ forgiveness will not be missing in your life and home. The lifestyle of forgiveness will be your lifestyle. You will not operate Christ forgiveness in error. The blessing, the miracle, the deliverance, the healing and wonders that comes will forgiveness of Christ be yours in Jesus name, amen.

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God wants to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    Your Transformation is my concern

    Fulfilling purpose keeps me excited

    I celebrate you! Be healthy and wealthy in your mind!

    What A Sad Story:

    March 25th, 2018

    Ten years before the Titanic left the shores of the United Kingdom, a smaller unknown ship left that same land en route to the new land of unlimited opportunities – The United States of America. Inside it was Mr. Edward.

    Mr. Edward was a struggling poor man that considered himself a victim of the British Establishment. He hardly got by and had done all manner of menial work that fetched him little money. His misery was accentuated by the astronomical increase in taxes being levied by the British Government at the turn of the twentieth century. He was as psychologically, emotionally and physically defeated as he was financially. It was at the height of this predicament that he made up his mind to leave England for America.

    He was the happiest man on earth the day he accumulated the last penny that completed the cost of buying his ticket to the New World! He bought himself a dozen loaves of bread and a few bottles of water. Once inside, he locked himself up in his cabin, determined not to bother anybody so that he will not incur any additional cost since he didn’t have any penny left. He used the conveniences of the ship at queer hours, when nobody will see him.

    For the 53 days the journey lasted, Mr. Edward minded his business by himself, living solely on bread and water. He was emaciated and dying when the ship berthed in New York. The ship officials were crying when they heard Mr. Edward’s story. Unbeknown to the poor Mr. Edward, his ticket entitled him to three well-prepared meals every day throughout the journey!
    How many Christians know their rights in Christ? How many are like Mr. Edward?

    Hosea 4:6 – My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:

    Are you an heir in His kingdom and you don’t know your Rights/Benefits in the Kingdom?

    If you don’t want to be like Mr. Edward, then you need the following ESSENTIALS in your Christian Walk:
    1. Faith in Christ. Matt 21:21
    2. Knowledge in Christ. Isaiah 5:13, Hosea 4:6
    3. Righteousness in Christ. Isaiah 54:17
    4. Power in the Spirit. Acts 1:8, Lk 10:19
    5. Courage in persecution Dan 3:15-17, 20-26
    6. Faithfulness in prayer. Daniel chapter 6. Daniel was faithful in prayer because that is the source of grace.
    7. Understanding in Christ. Eph 1:17-23

    Would you like to be part of the Heirs of His Kingdom? Are you an Heir of His Kingdom but struggling to get by? Do you lack the interpretation of what rightfully belong to you in Christ?

    There will be a Gathering of Heirs of His Kingdom this week from March 29th-April 1st

    Would you be willing to sacrifice Three Days to grow and exercise your FAITH with others, to claim and possess all that rightly belong to you in Christ?

    I am willing to sponsor you in Lagos and Abuja to this Gathering of Sons of God.

    Kindly ask for more information or send me a private message for the sponsorship to Lagos or Abuja venues of this Great Gathering.

    “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. 17. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. 18. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.” Daniel 3:16-18

     

    What a courageous Mind-set by Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego even in the face of death? They had a very strong conviction and absolute trust in God with all their Mind. A courageous Mind-set, is a winning Mind. There are people whose courage is all about evil. Their Minds are set to do evil without any remorse for it. As children of the Most High God, our level of confidence in Him must be higher than that of the evil doers.

    The three Hebrew children in our text, could challenge the highest authority in the land, could surrender to death penalty, could say No to the god of Babylonian kingdom, chose God’s will in case God decide not to deliver them from the burning fiery furnace, they saw through the eyes of FAITH that God will deliver them because their MIND was set on Christ the four man with them in the burning fiery furnace. Praise God!

    As Christians, we sometimes compromise our stand in the face of mere challenges and persecutions of this world. To overcome this, we need a courageous Mind-set like that of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. If they could challenge death penalty, we can also overcome every evil person/authority/things that want to stand on our ways from worshiping and pleasing the true God. Let’s set our MINDS on Grace that much more abound in our time.

    I love this verse; 17. ‘’If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.’’  SOME PEOPLE NORMALLY SAY, IS ONLY GOD THAT KNOWS THOSE SERVING HIM. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego knew they were serving God because their Minds have been transformed. The Bible says in 1John 3:21 ‘’Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.’’ A transformed Mind that is daily renewed by the Spirit witness Romans 8:16, enjoys grace to please God. On this premise, did Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego stood their ground not to compromise their service unto the living and true God. The Minds that are not in relationship with God will fall for anything because it is all about what self can get.

    A courageous Mind in God, will never be disappointed. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were not left alone to face the battle of life. God saw their courageous Mind, and through their uncompromising Minds, Christ Jesus (and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God) was introduced to the Babylonian kingdom. Please read Daniel 3:26-30.

    King Nebuchadnezzar in verse 29, made a decree, that all language, people and nations of the world must not speak anything inappropriate against the God of the three Hebrew children. You never can tell, what your decision to serve and please God today will birth tomorrow. Our fathers in the FAITH have been holding on that is why you and I get to know about the gospel.

    Will the coming generation find faith on earth before Christ comes? They will find real FAITH in their generation if we pass it on with a SPIRITED MIND-SET.

    Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego got promoted by the king that planned their death. Fortify your Mind daily by the word of God, power of the Holy Spirit, set your Mind focused on Christ, wear the whole armor of God and operate your life under the influence of grace. Victory is sure.

    Promotions await every courageous Mind in Christ.

    I pray for you today, that you will be strong and courageous in your Mind. You will not surrender to all the persecutions against your faith in God. May your service to God be rewarded speedily and when you need it most. May you not receive disappointment in your walk with God. Your stand for the righteousness of God, will bring others to know Christ. Those that want to see your shame and destruction, will see nothing but the glory and promotion of God in you and your family in Jesus name, amen.

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God wants to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    Your Transformation is my concern

    Fulfilling purpose keeps me excited

    I celebrate you! Be healthy and wealthy in your mind!

    “And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me? 33. And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he swear unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob. 34. Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.” Genesis 25:32-34

     May our Minds not deceive us to negotiate for things that have no eternal value in Jesus name, amen.

    Esau came back home hungry. He needed food by all means. He could not control his appetite for food. He therefore set his Mind on the pottage of Jacob his twin brother. He wouldn’t go to the kitchen to find food for himself. He was too lazy to do that. How our lazy Minds have made us sell precious things in our lives. The Mind of Esau did not value his birthright again because of lunch. WHAT HUNGER DO YOU HAVE NOW THAT YOUR MIND IS SET TO LOOSE PRECIOUS THINGS THAT GOD HAS ENDOWED YOU WITH? THINK ABOUT IT!

    In verse 32, there we saw the Mind-set of Esau. ”And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?”

    Does skipping lunch kills? Ordinary lunch Esau? What are you passing through right now in your life, family, business, career, ministry that your Mind is telling you the end has come to your life? Do not fall to the deceit of the devil. Don’t fall to self-deception. Don’t fall to the pressure of men to set your Mind to do evil. Don’t give up on that opportunity just for the enticing opportunity of the moment.

    Don’t you think is possible that the Mind of Esau has been wanting the bread and pottage of lentiles of Jacob all along? It is possible. Therefore, he was ready to sell whatever Jacob will demand from him for just the enjoyment of the moment.

    There is so much in Christ Jesus than bread and pottage of lentiles. If you have received Christ into your life, I congratulate you. But if you set your Mind to sell your privilege and portion in Christ for the mundane things of this world, that will be unwise. YOUR MIND IS THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON THAT YOU HAVE. Our Minds can make or mar us. What is in a Red Pottage that made Esau forfeited a profitable birthright? Don’t be quick to judge Esau. What is your Mind craving for that you think is more profitable than your relationship with God? ‘’For what will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, and forfeit his life?’’ Matthew 16:26. Is it possible to gain the whole world? It is not possible. Free your Mind from all the deceit that comes to it.

    The forfeiture of the birthright of Esau was foretold before his birth. Should ‘negative’ prophesies come to pass in our lives? No. A transformed Mind, the Mind that is focused on Christ, the Mind that value the purpose of life more than pleasures of the world, the Mind that sees a bright future in birthright, the Mind that knows that forfeiting birthright is equally forfeiting the blessings and benefits in it, are the Minds that can overcome ‘negative’ prophesies.

    True, the purpose of God for Jacob to be the head while his brother Esau serve him must be fulfilled. My approach to this passage, was the Mind-set displaced Esau. Jacob Mind-set of deception, is the topic for another day

    It is possible your Mind has deceived you to sell your Birthright and missed your Blessing like Esau. Hebrews 12:15-17. Since you are alive to read this, it means there is hope for you. Don’t write yourself off. Our God is a merciful God. Your Mind can be changed and there will be a restoration of lost glory, opportunity, life, family, integrity, ministry, career and whatsoever plan God have for your life can still be fulfil. Turn to Jesus today because he has the Power to forgive your past foolishness and give your Mind the Power to go and sin no more.

    Beloved, your Birthright in Christ has infinite value. Our birthright in Christ makes us joint heir of the covenant of the kingdom. Let’s keep our hearts with all diligence to enjoy this incomparable reality.

    I pray for you today, that negative prophecies will not come to pass in your life. Whatever God does not want in your life, you will not want it. Your Mind will not deceit you to value the pleasure of a moment for the forfeiture of eternal pleasure. The Mind that wait on the Lord to have the right things of life at the right time, will be your portion. Your hunger will be for righteousness and not things that will steal the glory of God from you. You will enjoy your birthright and the blessings that comes with it in Jesus name, amen.

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God wants to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    Your Transformation is my concern

    Manifesting Mindset (10)

    “And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? 18. And he said, this will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.” Luke 1:17-18

     This passage of the scripture, was a parable that Christ gave about a certain Rich man Mind-set. Luke 12:16-31. He manifested a foolish Mind-set. A person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich/robust relationship with God.

    In verse 19, the Bible says; ‘’And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink and be merry.’’ He manifested his Mind-set towards things he does not have control over. He does not have control over natural disaster that could happen and destroy the store house where he kept the goods and fruits. He does not have control over the numbers of years he will live on earth. He does not have control over his soul.

    Manifesting our Minds just towards the riches of this world without a sound and solid relationship with God, has eternal consequences of separation from God. We are established in God’s RIGHTEOUSNESS NOT IN RICHES says the word of God.

    It is good to think and plan for the future. It is good and safe to save and invest towards the future. It is wisdom to upgrade our career and profession towards the future. It is not out of place to attend courses, seminars, workshops, conferences to be better at taking strategic decisions for our future business growth. But it is dangerous to leave God out of our plans. The rich man Mind-set left God out of his plan. He never consider God who gave him the resources to be rich in the first place. Is Mind was carnal and destitute of spiritual value.

    Is it wrong for a Christian to be rich? No. is it wrong for a Christian to crave to enjoy financial and material prosperity? No. But it is wrong for our Mind-set as Christians to only pray, plan, focus and labour for earthly riches at the detriment of godly virtues, fruits of the Spirit, lifestyle of faith in the living God, and being occupied with eternity in view.

    The rich man never set his Mind on helping people with the resources that God gave him. His Mind-set was all about SELF. Christ manifested the Mind-set of selfless sacrificial love for humanity. He laid down His life for us. The rich man could not lay down his riches to bless others. All he wanted was just to eat, drink and be merry. The rich man never thought of how to use his riches to establish institutions, businesses, charitable foundations to help others, but he was rather stingy in his Mind. The mouth speaks, the body acts based on what has been programmed into our mind.

    Though this was a parable, but is this true about your Mind-set today? Remember, your life does not consist in the abundance of the things you possess. Set your Mind on the Giver of life.

    What is your Mind telling you to do with the riches that God has given you?

    What are you planning to do with the opportunities of life that you are privileged to have?

    Is your Mind mindful of the fact that all perfect gift is from above (God)?

    Is your Mind glorying God with all that you are blessed with or you are using it to oppress people?

    Has pride fill your heart because of all you have received by grace, and mercy of God?

    Is your Mind telling you to forget offering your time, talent, treasure/money, gifts, and resources to promote kingdom agenda?

    Is your Mind-set helping you to walk and work on the path of wisdom or foolishness?

    The soul of the rich man was deceived through self-deception and that same night his soul was taken from him by the Owner. Your heart can be regenerated and your Mind can be transformed today by the owner also. God is the owner of our lives and all things that we possess. Acknowledging Him with all our resources, is the sure way to have more and live long in good health to enjoy them.

    Start today by setting your Mind on what God want for your life. Luke 12:31

    I pray for you today, that you will not act like this foolish rich man no matter the level of your riches here on earth.  May your soul crave for riches towards God above earthly riches. The riches and prosperity that you receive from God will not make you forget Him. Your riches will be use to expand the kingdom and bless humanity. In all your pursuit in life, you will not leave God out of your plans. Your Mind will not wander away from the true God in Jesus name, amen.

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God wants to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    Your Transformation is my concern

    Fulfilling purpose keeps me excited

    I celebrate you! Be healthy and wealthy in your mind!

    Manifesting Mindset (9)  

    February 26th, 2018

    “And Abram said unto lot, let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren. 9. Is not the whole land before thee? Separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I wilt go to the left.” Genesis 13:8-9

     What made Abram (Abraham) to make such statement? His Mind-set. His Mind got transformed at Bethel, Genesis 13:1-4. When the life of a man is transformed and reprogrammed, the daily renewal of the mind with healthy and godly resources helps us to think right to act right. This was the case of Abraham. God called Abram not Lot. He could have use his authority as the called man to make choices for his brother’s son, but his transformed Mind would not allow him to do that. Others MUST see Christ in us if truly we have been transformed by grace through faith.

    Lot followed Abram his uncle everywhere he went. They were in the same trade. God prospered both of them. The prosperity was so much that the available land to them at that time could not contain them and there substance anymore Gen 13:6

     Abram said to Lot, ‘’Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee’’ His Mind-set was to maintain a godly relationship between him and Lot. Therefore, there was a need for a separation. Separation from some people in your life could be necessary to keep the bond of peace, fellowship and unity with them. Separation helps us to avoid strife. But it is painful that some people’s Mind-set still keeps animosity with people they have separated from. For as long as the separation is for good, free your MIND from the pains of the past and move on with your life for the best ahead.

    Abraham allowed Lot to choose where to settle first. WHY? Because Abraham Mind was waiting on God. He knew the earth is the Lord and the fullness thereof. He knew His transformed Mind will profit from any land. Because Abraham knew it did not matter the kind of challenging land you gave to him. What he was carrying in him was enough to make it fatter. He knew it was not the land that needed to be fatter, it was the blessing in him that needed to come upon the land. Whatever the land was, it will yield. The day we realize who we are in Christ, our position, privilege, portion, possession, that’s when the blessing of the finished work of Christ in us will begin to manifest out through our transformed MIND.

    It does not matter what that line of business or carrier is. It doesn’t matter the company you are in. The Bible says, it is the blessing of the Lord that maketh rich and added no painful toil/ no sorry to it. Therefore, it is not the right grade/certificate. It is not man know man Mind-set. It is not the right connection or family privilege. It is the blessing, the Mind of God in you that compel the favour, that makes the doors open, that brings the right strategy, which brings the wisdom, that opens the door and not toil. Therefore, Abraham needed not strife with Lot because he was a carrier of the blessings of God. In Genesis 13:14-18, God release more blessing into the life of Abraham. In verse 17, God said to Abraham; ‘’Arise, walk through the land’’ and take possession.

    How does our Mind possess the land?

    Walk in uprightness through the land that the Lord has given you

    Work in the land don’t be idle

    Worship and praise God for the land He has given you

    Word confession and Christ lifestyle must be our daily focus and practise in the land

    Welfare of the people in the land must be our focus. Give to charity in the land. There is a purpose for your prosperity

    Warfare engagement with all the forces that want to war against the law of God in your MIND in the land

    Winning with the right associations and contacts in the land. Win and keep building your Mind-set with the right People and right Books.

    As a child of God, deliberately allow your Mind to focus and mediate on the promises and wonders of God in the past. I am sure Abraham was busy mediating on the book of God, God’s covenant and promises to him, and simply saying; God let your will be done in my life.

    Setting our Minds on God’s Choice, is the Best CHOICE.

    I pray for you today, that you will allow God to choose for you. I pray that your Mind will constantly remind you that you are the blessing and when you declare possibilities on any challenging land or situation, miracle will follow in Jesus name. Lord Jesus, help us to get occupied with the opportunities you have given us in the land. Help us to WIN with your word daily in Jesus name, amen.

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God wants to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    Your Transformation is my concern

    Fulfilling purpose keeps me excited

    I celebrate you! Be healthy and wealthy in your mind!

    Manifesting Mindset (8)  

    February 19th, 2018

    “And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.” Luke 22:31-32

    The scripture above says much about the Mind-set of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Satan has desired to have Simon Peter. He wanted to make him nothing when Christ has already declared him somebody. Satan goal is to sewer the good out of every living soul.

    In Matthew 16:16-19, Simon Peter just declared that Christ is the Son of the living God. Upon that declaration, Christ gave a life time task to Peter to build His church (Redeemed people of God) and gave him power and authority that the gates of hell (Satan kingdom) will not be able to prevail. Satan knew that with the transformed mind of Simon Peter and the authority given to him by Christ, his kingdom was in jeopardy. So, Satan would rather rob Peter of the perfect gifts given to him by the Lord.

    The Mind-set of our Saviour Jesus Christ is my focus. If I told you that God has made you somebody but Satan want to make you nobody, what will be your reaction? I can guess what your reaction will be. You will be angry in your spirit against the devil. Before I raise prayer points for you, you will be praying already. But Jesus would not want you and me to focus on the devil. Why? He want us to focus on FAITH. When we build our FAITH on the living God, Satan has no choice but to bow. Remember, ‘’For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our FAITH.’’ 1stJohn 5:4   

    Jesus did not start binding the devil. He did not start describing how wicked the devil is. He did not put fear in the heart of Peter. He did not magnify the desires of Satan against Peter. He did not give Peter prayer points on how to nullify the desires of the devil. HIS MIND-SET WAS TO BUILD THE FAITH OF SIMON PETER. So let the Mind of Christ dwell in you richly. Colossians 3:16

    As ministers of the gospel, are we building Faith in people in the living God or building fear in the people of God?

    As a minister of the gospel, are you praying for the Faith of the people to grow or you enjoy them coming to you from time to time for prayers for Cockroach to leave their apartment?

    Are you a Faith-Builder or a foundation of the people’s problem digger?

    As a child of God, do you focus on the proposed plans of the devil or your focus is on the finished work of Christ for you?

    Is your Mind on strengthening believers’ Faith and Trust in God or you enjoy establishing Facts, Fallacies, Falsehoods and Fears in all your meetings?

    Focusing on the essential thing (FAITH) is what our Lord prayed for. If our Faith fail not, when temptations, trials and buffeting of the devil comes, we are sure to overcome. FAITH IS ABOVE ALL… Ephesians 6: 16 ‘’Above all, taking the shield of Faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.’’ FAITH is above all the other weapons because we need FAITH to possess them in the first place. Jesus knew this and He set the Mind of Peter on this major ingredient in our Christian walk.

    In Luke chapter 10, Jesus appointed and sent seventy disciples to go and preach in the cities. The seventy returned with joy that the devils submitted to them Luke 10:17-20. Our Lord gave them power over the devils. It is the power of FAITH. In verse 20, Jesus set their MINDS on one essential thing, ‘’But rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.’’ In Ephesians 2:8, we are saved by Grace through FAITH. The salvation of our soul is more important than the numbers of devils we cast out.

    The Mind of Christ is the Mind of FAITH. In fact, in the scriptures He says, will He find FAITH on earth when He returns? He is talking about you and me. Will Christ find Faith and Faithfulness in you and me? The Bible says, ‘’Let this Mind be in you which was also in Jesus Christ.’’ It is the Mind of Faith! It is the prayer of Faith! It is the Preaching of Faith! It is the Lifestyle of Faith. Read Hebrews chapter eleven (11) and you will discover that, Faith is the only essential thing required in our Christian life. We live by Faith Galatians 2:20… The righteousness of God is revealed from Faith to Faith. James 2:5

     Jesus focused the Mind of Simon Peter on FAITH, Prayer of Faith and not on mere desires of Satan. Jesus gave one singular assignment to Simon Peter and that is the same assignment He has given the church, TO STRENGTHEN THE FAITH, EMPOWER FAITH, BUILD THE FAITH OF BRETHREN.

    I pray for you today, that your FAITH will not fail in the trials and battles of life. I pray that your Mind will be focus on the finished work of Christ and not on the mere desires of Satan concerning you. I pray that God increase you power and authority of FAITH to stop all the devices of the wicked (Satan). The prayer of Jesus will be your prayer points. Receive grace today to build the FAITH of brethren in Jesus name, amen.

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God wants to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    Your Transformation is my concern

    Fulfilling purpose keeps me excited

    I celebrate you! Be healthy and wealthy in your mind!

    “And David inquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I go up to the Philistines? Wilt thou deliver them into my mine hand? And the LORD said unto David, Go up: for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand” 2Samuel 5:19

    King David was a man of war and the Philistines were set of people he and his team had conquered in battle before. He defeated their capital, Goliath, in battle. The nations around Israel were afraid of them because of the man David who was skilful, strategic and strong in battle because the Lord God was with him.

    The Mind-set of David was not to rely on his victory over the Philistines in the past but yet sought the face of the LORD on this new fight against them. Many are falling today in Christianity and Ministry because they rely on the victory of yesterday to fight the sophisticated battle of today. The sophistication in technology and all forms of devices available today, are not stronger and more powerful than our Saviour. But wrong Mind-sets in fighting the battle over our enemy could lead to defeat.

    Yesterday’s grace is not sufficient for today.

    Yesterday’s anointing is not fresh for today’s battle.

    The faith of yesterday needs to be further built to win today.

    Victory of yesterday does not guaranteed the victory of today.

    The prayer of yesterday is not enough for today

    The Bible study of yesterday is not enough for today.

    The methods and strategies of yesterday may not be necessary for today.

    The weapons of war of yesterday are not the same weapon used in today’s war.

    The knowledge and wisdom of yesterday, is not sufficient for today. We need a better and higher understanding today.

    Our God of yesterday, is the same today and forever. But is ways, methods are not stereotyped.

    As David set his Mind to pray, believers must do the same. Our mind must seek the Lord at all times in all things. The smallest matter in our Christian walk, should be taken to God for His view about it. The Mind-set of saying, LORD, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE ME TO DO ON THIS MATTER

    Sometimes as believers, we rush to make decisions. It is a function of our Mind. The Mind manifest what has been programmed into it. The training we have given our Mind is what it act on. As believers, we must know how to use the word, I WILL GET BACK TO YOU in our relationships. People will come to respect us when we don’t rush into taking decision just on the sport. You don’t have to necessarily tell them you want to go and pray about it. Since they know you are a Christian, it is natural for them to think you want to go and pray about it. IT IS A GOOD MIND-SET IF YOU PRAY AND THINK THROUGH ON ISSUES BEFORE YOU GIVE YOUR ANSWERS ON THEM.

    Did King David and his men had the victory over the enemy because the King set his Mind to seek the Lord….VERSES 20-21? Now you will agree with me that our God is a dynamic God and His sons and daughters must follow the same Mind-set.

    In the same chapter Verses 22-25, the Philistines came yet again to fight with the Children of Israel and God gave King David another strategy when he set his Mind to seek the Lord… 2Samuel 5:23. The same method will not always be the solution all the time. God’s strategies are gotten in the place of PRAYER AND MEDITATION

    Your ministry needs a new strategy. Your family needs a new method to handle that challenge or project. Your business needs a new approach in marketing, management, branding, profit making. Your church needs a new programme to attract souls to the kingdom. Your personal evangelism needs a new revelation from the Holy Spirit on the chariot to join to win the Ethiopian eunuch. All these and much more will be taken care of, if we set our Mind to seek the Lord and not rely on our own understanding.

    Stop doing things as a child of God without checking through. Think Through! Pray Through!

    I pray for you today, that you will daily receive empowerment and wisdom from God. Your mind will be set to inquire from God in all things. You will not fall prey of relying on your own understanding. May you find the time to pray and think through. I pray for you today, that all the mistakes and consequences of wrong decisions and actions of the past, receive forgiveness, healing and deliverance from them in Jesus name, amen.

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God wants to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    Your Transformation is my concern

    Fulfilling purpose keeps me excited

    I celebrate you! Be healthy and wealthy in your mind!

    “And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money. Saying, give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost” Acts 8:18-19

     

    Simon demonstrated a wrong Mind-set after believing in Christ (Acts 8:13). Simon was a man that used sorcery to bewitch the people in Samaria, (Acts 8:9) before his encounter with the gospel through Philip. Seeing the miracles, signs and wonders done by a genuine servant of God, is not enough to transform a satanic Mind-set to that of the type of Christ.

    Simon thought salvation, holiness of life, Holy Ghost Baptism, Fruits of the Spirit, Gift of the Spirit, Righteousness, Nature of God, Eternal Life, Healing, Deliverance, Financial Prosperity etc. could be bought with money. What a Mind-set?

    Do you also think by paying of Tithes and Offering and all kinds of offerings that will right your wrong doings without genuine repentance and turning away from your sins? Sowing the seed of money cannot take the place of sowing the seed of righteousness and holiness. Simon wanted the Power of the Holy Spirit not through entire consecration, holiness experience and faith in God. There is no short cut to the things of the kingdom and things of eternal value on our walk with God. Set your MIND on the right things.

    Simon Mind-set, was set on self-glorification. ‘’saying, give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost” When a man wants anything, he can set his mind to have it by all means. When our transformed mind is set on pleasing God, the transformed man will appropriate GRACE by all means to bring glory to God.

    Are there no servants of God today that have been influenced by the Mind-set of some of their congregation because of money?

    Are there no churches today, which are run solely on the Mind-set of making money?

    Are there no individuals in the ministry today with the mind of seeking their own glory with the gifts of God on them?

    Do you think you can use your money to get favour from the Lord without having personal encounter with Him? God does not need your money. Your financial capacity has limitation. The Holy Spirit is the Game Changer not your money.

    Why do you offer the services you render in the church of God?

    Thank God for Peter who understood the things of the Spirit. In Acts 8:20-23, Peter rebuke the man sharply. Peter was a disciple of Christ who was not ready to compromise the standard of God because of money. In verse 20 Peter said; ‘’Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.’’

    I wish I have also the time to expatiate on this verse 20. Any money you give to God’s work with a wrong Mind-set, will bring destruction on you if not repented of. The gift of God, the favour of God, the blessing of God, the miracle of God, the life of God, the peace of God, the joy of the Lord, the protection of God, the prosperity of God, the promotion from God cannot be bought with money my friend.

    When you give your money to support God’s work, it will not give you the gift of God automatically if you have not been transformed in your mind. In verse 21, Peter said to Simon; ‘’Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.’’ YOU DON’T HAVE THE GIFT/BLESSING OF GOD BECAUSE YOU GIVE MONEY, FOR YOUR HEART, MIND, SOUL, AND MOTIVE IS NOT RIGHT WITH GOD.

    Romans 12:1-2, tells us the kind of mind and lifestyle that is acceptable to God. After the initial repentance and transformation of our hearts through the acceptance of the sacrifice of Christ, the Lord require us to daily examine our lives, daily transformation of our minds by renewing our love, commitment and loyalty to Christ and Christ alone. This will help us to prove what’s good, and acceptable and perfect will of God is.

    You can be free from every wrong Mind-set making you to seek the gifts and the blessings of God with MONEY. Remember, you cannot use your money to corner God. If you are running ministry because of money, repent today. Peter counselled Simon in Acts 8: 22-23 to repent.

    I pray for you today, that true transformation of heart will be your portion. Your mind will not be deceive through money bags. I pray you will stop seeing money as a means to connect with God today in Jesus name. All the influence of money on you to compromise God’s standard, will not overpower you. Your heart will seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and not self-glorification in Jesus name, amen.

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God wants to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    Your Transformation is my concern

    Manifesting Mindset (5)

    “But there came a messenger unto Saul saying, Haste thee, and come; for the Philistines have invaded the land. Wherefore Saul returned from pursuing after David, and went against the Philistines: therefore they called that place Selahammahlekoth.” 1st Samuel 23:27-28

    King Saul anger against David was very obvious to all Israel. King Saul set his Mind to pursue David for no just cause. His Mind-set was not to appreciate the gifting and calling of David but to be envious of him. God has used David to conquered Goliath in chapter 17 of first Samuel. Instead of him to be grateful to God for raising a youth among the people that will succeed him, he would rather seek to kill him.

    Why are you fighting and killing the dreams of young people around you today? How many lives have been wasted because of wrong Mind-set against them? God be praised today that if you focus your attention on Him, like He delivered David from the wicked Mind-set of Saul, because David maintained his ways before the Lord, He will protect you and your dreams from been short-lived in Jesus name.

    God has made His children kings and priests and He expects us to focus on the kingdom and our priesthood office. Saul’s Mind was off the kingdom. He left the caring of the subjects of the kingdom for self-serving purpose. He would rather debase himself because of David than remain in the dignified throne and administer justice, love, peace, the common wealth of Israel and God’s Mind to the people.

    IS YOUR MIND LEAVING THE ESSENTIAL AND IMPORTANT FOR THE NONESSENTIAL AND UNIMPORTANT?

    Are you pursuing a wrong cause like Saul?

    Is your Mind running after what might imprison, kill and destroy your dream?

    Is your Mind envious of others success in life?

    Is your Mind deceiving you to leave your exalted kingdom position and pursue the mundane things of this world?

    Why do you think you will succeed fighting God’s approval?

    Why is your Mind against your supporters and helpers in life? David was a helper in the kingdom but because God has chosen him to be the next king in Israel, Saul would rather want him killed than reign in his stead.

    Why would your Mind be against your neighbour when Christ admonish us to love our neighbour like ourselves?

    The anger of Saul against David was so much that anyone that identify with David was in trouble. 1st Samuel 22:17. Whenever a man set his mind against a member of a family, his mind is automatically against all the members of that family. Check your Mind-set against that man, that woman, that child in your neighbour family. Can you say 100% your hatred for one is not for all?

    There is always a consequence for manifesting a wrong Mind-set. A messenger brought the report of the consequence of Saul evil Mind-set. The Philistines have invaded the land of Israel. Saul Mind-set made him to pursue an individual (David) at the detriment of a whole nation. Anger, jealous, envy will make us leave our exalted position to pursue the things that does not matter to God’s kingdom. Beware!

    In chapter 24:1-2, Saul continue to pursue David. We are told he returned from following the Philistines not that he and his men have conquered them. He would rather pursue hard on David with three thousand men than to pursue the Philistines the obvious enemy of Israel. WHAT A MIND-SET? In verses 16-22 of chapter 24, is as if King Saul had repented from the wrong Mind-set but in 1st Samuel 26:1-2, Saul left his throne and started pursuing David again. He was supposed to appeal to David to come and support him against the Philistines the enemy of Israel.

    The devil is the real enemy not your brother, your sister, your uncle, your parents, your partner, your boss at work etc. The envy against a true child of God will not stand. Whoever set his/her Mind wrongly on a chosen child of God, will fall for it expect he/she repent.

    King Saul eventually died when the Philistines pursued after him with a strong determination to see his end. Jonathan and many strong men of Israel died in the battle because they had a king whose Mind was diverted from the real battle. Saul killed himself. He could not face the shame of been killed by the enemies he was meant to pursue initially.

    Wrong Mind-set will lead to sudden death if not repented of. There is need for transformation of the heart. No matter how wrong, wicked, callous your Mind has been, Christ Jesus have the power to save, heal and transform your heart today.

    I pray for you today, that your mind will be set on the right things. Your mind will not deceive you to ruin you. Your mind will not drive away your helpers. I pray for you today that you will not abandon your exalted position. You will be a David with the right Mind-set that will bless your enemy and allow God to intervene for you in Jesus name, amen.

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God wants to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    To your Transformation

    I am alive for this purpose

    I celebrate you! Be healthy and wealthy in your mind!
