1 John 3:
1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:John1:12
23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.1John4:17
5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.John15:5
2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2Cor5:17
6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

Say to yourself: “I refuse to cry. I refuse to sigh. I will use the Word to recreate my world.
I will use God’s Word as my word. I will use the word to move obstacles. I will use the word to shape my future. I will use the word as a messenger and servant. When I say ‘go’! it goes. It will not return without accomplishing what it was sent to do.”
The Word says, “Ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you. If you abide in Me and My Words abide in you, you shall ask what you will and it shall be done unto you. He shall call upon Me and I will answer him.Ps91:15 Call upon me in the 15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.Ps50:15 3 ‘Call to Me , and I will answer you , and show you great and mighty things , which you do not know.’ Jer33:3 24 “It shall come to pass That before they call , I will answer; And while they are still speaking , I will hear. Isa65:24
Therefore I speak the solutions-not the problems. I speak life and not death. I speak healing, health, wealth, prosperity, soundness. As He is so am I. God’s Word will not fall to the ground. My words will not fall to the ground. I refuse to cry, rather I will give thanks and praise and worship my Maker and my God, Who is God all by Himself and able to do exceeding abundantly far above what I can ask, think or imagine, according to the power at work in me. 8 Ask of Me , and I will give You The nations for Your inheritance , And the ends of the earth for Your possession. Ps2:8
3 To console those who mourn in Zion , To give them beauty for ashes , The oil of joy for mourning , The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness , The planting of the Lord , that He may be glorified.” Isa61:3
The Gentiles Bless Zion 1 Arise , shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. Isa60:1 17
Therefore , if anyone is in Christ , he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold , all things have become new. 2Cor.5:17 11
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you , says the Lord , thoughts of peace and not of evil , to give you a future and a hope. Jer29:11
34 My covenant I will not break , Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips. Ps 89:34
5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You , Whose heart is set on pilgrimage. 6 As they pass through the Valley of Baca , They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with pools. 7 They go from strength to strength; Each one appears before God in Zion. Ps84:5-7
A Perpetual Covenant of Peace
1 “Sing , O barren , You who have not borne! Break forth into singing , and cry aloud , You who have not labored with child! For more are the children of the desolate Than the children of the married woman , ” says the Lord. 2 “Enlarge the place of your tent , And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; Lengthen your cords , And strengthen your stakes. 3 For you shall expand to the right and to the left , And your descendants will inherit the nations , And make the desolate cities inhabited. 4 “Do not fear , for you will not be ashamed; Neither be disgraced , for you will not be put to shame; For you will forget the shame of your youth , And will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore. Isa54:1-4
10 And the Lord restored Job’s losses when He prayed for his friends. Indeed the Lord gave Job twice as much as He had before. Job42:10
“Nevertheless,”–As if, notwithstanding all the foolishness and ignorance which David had just been confessing to God, not one atom the less was it true and certain that David was saved and accepted, and that the blessing of being constantly in God’s presence was undoubtedly his. Fully conscious of his own lost estate, and of the deceitfulness and vileness of his nature, yet, by a glorious outburst of faith, he sings “nevertheless I am continually with thee.” Believer, you are forced to enter into Asaph’s confession and acknowledgment, endeavour in like spirit to say “nevertheless, since I belong to Christ I am continually with God!” By this is meant continually upon his mind, he is always thinking of me for my good. Continually before his eye;–the eye of the Lord never sleepeth, but is perpetually watching over my welfare. Continually in his hand, so that none shall be able to pluck me thence. Continually on his heart, worn there as a memorial, even as the high priest bore the names of the twelve tribes upon his heart forever. Thou always thinkest of me, O God. The bowels of thy love continually yearn towards me. Thou art always making providence work for my good. Thou hast set me as a signet upon thine arm; thy love is strong as death, many waters cannot quench it; neither can the floods drown it. Surprising grace! Thou seest me in Christ, and though in myself abhorred, thou beholdest me as wearing Christ’s garments, and washed in his blood, and thus I stand accepted in thy presence. I am thus continually in thy favour–“continually with thee.” Here is comfort for the tried and afflicted soul; vexed with the tempest within–look at the calm without. “Nevertheless”–O say it in thy heart, and take the peace it gives. “Nevertheless I am continually with thee.”
They wrote him off but God wrote him in. They put him in a special needs pigeon hole. They said he could not read or speak well and needed early intervention -confined to a special school.
But God put him in a different league of excellent achievers. His father and group pastor of Christ Embassy, Pastor Nelson, refused to accept their report but believed and confessed God’s report over his son.
Now see what the Lord has done.
Joshua Ngoka has turned out to be a computer Whizz kid and King’s kid and built a computer at 11.
All things are possible.
Have you been written off? Have you been discarded into the rubbish bin of life by those who are focusing on the externalities they see. Refuse to take sides with them. Whose report will you believe? Hold on to the word of God concerning you. He will perfect that which concerns you. You too will come out on top. You are a masterpiece regardless of your present station and circumstances.
Refuse to accept the lies of the enemy concerning your children, your family, your finances, your career or ministry. God has the final say. He is working in you both to will and to do according to his promises. Fix your eyes on Jesus- the author and finisher of your faith.
8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you , that you , always having all sufficiency in all things , may have an abundance for every good work. 2Cor.9:8 9 And He said to me , “My grace is sufficient for you , for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities , that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2Cor12:9
Expense 5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves , but our sufficiency is from God , 2Cor.3:5 14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ , and the love of God , and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen 2Cot.13:14 19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Phil4:19
9 For I am the least of the apostles , who am not worthy to be called an apostle , because I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am , and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all , yet not I , but the grace of God which was with me. 1Cor 15:9-10
Christ has grace without measure in himself, but he hath not retained it for himself. As the reservoir empties itself into the pipes, so hath Christ emptied out his grace for his people. “Of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.” He seems only to have in order to dispense to us. He stands like the fountain, always flowing, but only running in order to supply the empty pitchers and the thirsty lips which draw nigh unto it. Like a tree, he bears sweet fruit, not to hang on boughs, but to be gathered by those who need. Grace, whether its work be to pardon, to cleanse, to preserve, to strengthen, to enlighten, to quicken, or to restore, is ever to be had from him freely and without price; nor is there one form of the work of grace which he has not bestowed upon his people. As the blood of the body, though flowing from the heart, belongs equally to every member, so the influences of grace are the inheritance of every saint united to the Lamb; and herein there is a sweet communion between Christ and his Church, inasmuch as they both receive the same grace. Christ is the head upon which the oil is first poured; but the same oil runs to the very skirts of the garments, so that the meanest saint has an unction of the same costly moisture as that which fell upon the head. This is true communion when the sap of grace flows from the stem to the branch, and when it is perceived that the stem itself is sustained by the very nourishment which feeds the branch. As we day by day receive grace from Jesus, and more constantly recognize it as coming from him, we shall behold him in communion with us, and enjoy the felicity of communion with him. Let us make daily use of our riches, and ever repair to him as to our own Lord in covenant, taking from him the supply of all we need with as much boldness as men take money from their own purse.
Here are some Special sermons and songs and prayers that will impact, propel you, and wow you. Be blessed. Freely I received, freely I give. These represent a tip of the iceberg of what God has done in my life. He can do the same for you and with you if you will let Him. Share them with your friends and family. Store them and pull them out in time of need. God is good all the time. You can partner with the ministry to share in our reward. The greater the challenge, the greater the glory.
From breakthrough to breakthrough
Through our God we can do valiantly, our trials can thrust us into triumph; our tests can bring testimony battles can birth miracles and burdens can translate into blessing. This message will revive you as you open your heart and let the truth of God permeate, saturate and set you free. 2Sam5:17-20
17 But when the Philistines heard that they had anointed David king over Israel, all the Philistines came up to seek David; and David heard of it, and went down to the hold.
18 The Philistines also came and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim.
19 And David enquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I go up to the Philistines? wilt thou deliver them into mine hand? And the LORD said unto David, Go up: for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand.
20 And David came to Baal-perazim, and David smote them there, and said, The LORD hath broken forth upon mine enemies before me, as the breach of waters. Therefore he called the name of that place Baal-perazim’
When your back is on the ground, you can only look up. David was here in Ziklag. But he encouraged himself, sought God’s face and God gave him the Word: pursue, overtake and recover all. With this word David was emboldened to fight with his ferociously with his men and they recovered all. You too can recover all you have lost if you seek God’s face and receive a strategy from Him.
Exceedingly great and precious promises from God for those who dwell in the secret place; who abide under the shadow of the Almighty. This is river of life, a bread basket, a comfort when you are threatened by principalities and powers. These promises are not for those who are occasional visitors but for those who cherish His presence.
This is a breadbasket, river of life, a balm in times of trouble, comfort in times of storms, light amidst darkness. In this psalm you will find security, prosperity, key to provision and protection, power of the Spirit and the presence of God and triumphs in trials. If the Shepherd presides He will provide. Again that He is your Shepherd does not mean you will not suffer. We are called to suffer with Him as to reign with Him. He trains us and prunes us so that we can give Him glory. Furthermore, if He is your Shepherd You must hear His voice because His sheep hear His voice.
When you have been behind the queue for a LONG time, you may think that God has forgotten you and it is over for you. When almost everyone you know has run ahead of you and you are trailing and your strength and resolve are waning and failing God has a surprise up His sleeves: the Last shall be the First!
Hold on to the horns of the altar. Do not give up on God because He has not given up on you. You are coming back with a bang! Those who knew you before will not recognise you. God will do a new and quick work in you, give you beauty for ashes the oil of joy in place of mourning, the garment of praise in place of the spirit of heaviness because you are a tree of righteousness- the planting of the Lord, called to glorify Him.
God is our Refuge, our fortress, Our hiding place, our security. You and I need to know this beyond doubt especially when your back is on the wall or on the ground. From time to time your strength will fail you; friends will fail you; your relatives and even parents will fail you. There will be occasions when it will seem as if the earth is caving in right before your eyes. You need to know God as your Refuge, your Bulwark, your impenetrable Wall. God is your Refuge!
You cannot depend on your strength, spouse, Family, Friends, the Church, the government, your finances your talents or treasures or connections or your prowess, intellect, six packs or model looks. All these are futile- the arm of the flesh which will fail you in the day of trouble. Your help is in the Lord and the Lord alone. So lift up your eyes to the hills- symbolic of the Most High, where your help comes from.
God is not a man that He should lie. His promises are ‘yes and amen’ in Christ Jesus. It is true that Goliath will threaten, torment and taunt us as we hold on to the promises of God but we must continue to see our problems through the eyes of God, like David. When David did he was able to bring down Goliath and turn on the light for the whole of Israel. Goliath can be a family or Church bondage or an addiction that keeps daring you. Do not throw in the towel but stand until it falls. Submit yourself to God and resist the enemy. Stand on the promises- the New Covenant established on better promises.
God’s word is as fresh as ever- new every morning. May you be refreshed, energised, and rebooted step on the water of His word to you and enter your promised land ins Christ.
Stand to face your Goliath and he will come crashing down in the fullness of time, in Jesus Name.
It would be great to hear from you if the Lord uses this message to confirm what He is saying or had said to you.
This is a prayer prayed during a spiritual warfare to encourage myself like David did in 1Sam.30:8. It is long but also power-packed and one that I intend coming back to, to meditate upon and be renewed , inspired strengthened and charged to go from glory to glory. It is also prophetic not only because it is full of over 100 scriptures but you will find it prophetic as the Lord also comforted me during this time of divine encounter, using the scriptures also. So it’s a two- way communication as every meaningful communication should be. at the end it is concluded with scripture songs which if you learn would enable you memorise the scriptures effortlessly.
I had to push myself to see how far I can go and I was not disappointed.
For those who want to increase your memory bank of the scriptures, tis a scripture memory aid. Note the scriptures you want to memorise, arrange them thematically, quote the reference three times, then recite the scripture three times and quote the reference to end with. Later on go back to your recording and as you play your recording back try and recite the passage as the reference is being quoted before you hear the full verse. Accompany yourself and recite the verse. Now do it all by yourself, starting and ending with the reference.
Apply the scripture in prayer: say it and pray it. Use it at the earliest opportunity and frequently. The more you use it, the more it will be registered in your heart.
Unique Twin service and product; song from struggles; lemonade from my lemon; faith fuel; song in the night to cheer those who tear. God prepares a sumptuous sup for us as we go through the valley of the shadow of death and in the presence of our foes. He fights our battles as we look to Him, so we can hold our peace. He makes a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
You can also find a new song in the book that inspired this sermon.
On the Road to Good Success you will find Goliath, lions and bears. As you embark on this road, Pharaoh will pursue you and frighten you. You must keep your eyes on Jesus and refuse any distraction. and follow the prescription God has given: Anchor your soul on His word, meditate on it day and night, eat it, digest it, speak it, believe it, do it- all of it. Then you will make you way prosperous and then you will have Good Success. Know the difference between godly success and worldly success and choose Good Success- not goods success.
10 Today I am who I am because of God’s grace, and I have made sure that the grace He offered me has not been wasted. I have worked harder, longer, and smarter than all the rest; but I realize it is not me—it is God’s grace with me that has made the difference.
GRACE: God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense
Grace is no licence for a life of disgrace
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.1Cor1:3
16 And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. John1:16
11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, Tit.2:11-12
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.Eph2:8-9
.15 But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many
17 For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.) 20 Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound.But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,21 so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Rom5:1-2
.5 Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name, Ro1:5
7 To all who are in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, Ro3:24
“4 Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt.16 Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all Ro4:4,16
14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. Ro6:14
15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! Ro6:15
And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work.Ro11:6
Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith;Ro12:6.10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. 1Cor15:10
20 And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly.
9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.
.8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 2Cor9:8
9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
