ESTABLISHMENT

For several weeks, I have shared with you on the importance of recognizing the various voices in your life. Today, I would like to speak to you on a different subject. This is establishment. “But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you” (1 Peter 5:10). To be established means to make someone stable. You must understand that from this verse, suffering is not forever, it is just for a while. You must become stable and established in God financially, spiritually, and in your relationships. “And Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground. And all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the Lord. And the Lord appeared again in Shiloh: for the Lord revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the Lord.” (1 Samuel 3:19-21). Samuel was established to be a prophet. You can also become established in whatever you are doing. God is going to establish you. If you look at the life of David, “And Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, and carpenters, and masons: and they built David an house. And David perceived that the Lord had established him king over Israel, and that he had exalted his kingdom for his people Israel’s sake” (2 Samuel 5:11-12). God established David as a king. God wants to make you established in whatever you are doing. Whether it is to be a prophet, king, or a Christian, you must be stable and established. To be established is the will of God but it will come after you have suffered a while.

And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom.” (2 Samuel 7:12). In the Bible, we see that God established the seed of David now how much more you? There is nothing more stable than the universe and we can see it in the Bible. “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. (Psalms 24:1-2). God has created a stable universe and He is looking to also make you and I stable. We need stability in our lives. You cannot be a strong Christian, a member of a church, or in a relationship if you are not stable and established. God wants to bless you and stabilize you. In order for God to do this for you, He has to give you understanding. Understanding stabilizes a person “Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not”. (Jeremiah 5:21). God does not want his people to lack understanding because understanding stabilizes you greatly. Understanding is the master key to becoming stable in something. It is only those who lack a deep understanding that become unstable. Receive the grace for understanding! Receive the grace for establishment from today!

THE VOICE OF CIRCUMSTANCES

“There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification” (1 Corinthians 14:10).

The Bible tells us that there are many kinds of voices in the world that influence us. One of these voices is the voice of circumstances. Your circumstances are not what should lead you because God has called you to do great things in this life. Circumstances can appear as the cares of this world. “Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful” (Matthew 13:18-22). You must be careful about being led by the cares of this world. They are not sins but they will not lead you into the will of God. Great people are those who rise above circumstances and do what is right in spite of the circumstances.

When you are led by the circumstances of this life, you will never amount to much for God. You must determine to be aware and conscious of God’s word to you. His word will lead you into the right path. Do not follow circumstances, follow what He is leading you to do. The words “circum” means circle and “stances” means standing around. So, circumstances mean things standing around. Such things should not guide you. Things standing around in your life, should not be a reason for what you do. A person who is just blown around by circumstances will never amount be anything important. Circumstances must not determine your fate. Decide that circumstances at home and circumstances in your life, will not determine what you will do.

You must recognize when God is leading you. “I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name” (Revelation 3:8). A door is something that God opens for His children. How will you know when that door is being opened for you? You will know when it is the only thing working in the midst of all other things not working in your life. Receive the grace to recognize the supernatural doors of your life.

HEARING THE VOICE OF GOD

I am sharing with you in this season about hearing the voice of God. One of the main things that helps us hear the voice of God is to eliminate other voices. Eliminating other voices is a master key to hearing the voice of God. That is why 1 Corinthians 14:10 says, there are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification” (1 Corinthians 14:10). Sometimes to hear the voice of God, you have to tune down or take away some other voices. That is true of every voice. If we are in a room together and everyone starts talking, you may not hear me. One of the keys is to know and recognize the voices that exist and silence them. You will realize that as you quieten them down, you will start to hear the voice you need to hear.

Many kinds of voices confront us daily. Some of these voices include the voice of God, the voice of the mind, which is constantly influencing you, and the voice of the flesh which is also constantly speaking. To do well, you need to quieten certain dangerous voices. “Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea. And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them: he clave the rock also, and the waters gushed out” (Isaiah 48:17-18). God is the one who actually teaches you to do well. It is not the devil, circumstances, the billionaires or philosophers of this world that teach you this. God is the one who leads you where you should go in this life. How will you be led and how will you prosper if you cannot hear the voice of God? Every other voice will lead you astray. That is why you must trust Him to lead you. When you follow the voice of God, He will cause miracles to happen in your life and make the impossible possible in your life. These are the great advantages of drowning out other voices. From today, choose to listen to God’s voice. Allow him to lead you and you will receive unending peace and righteousness. God is working wonders in your life today because you have yielded to His voice and not any other.

THE VOICE OF GOD

Today, I want to share with you about something higher that is going to change your life. That is the voice of God.

Now 1 Corinthians 14:10 tells us that, There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification” (1 Corinthians 14:10). Now this means that all the voices are significant. When something is significant, it means, it is important to you and that is why it is being mentioned. That is why elections ae even talked about so that the average person in town takes them seriously because who you vote for can and does always personally affect you. When 1 Corinthians 14:10 tells us that none of these voices are without significance, it means that all voices will and do have an effect on you whether you think so or not.

The greatest voice is the voice of God which you must believe and listen to. I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it. But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me. So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: and they walked in their own counsels. Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways! I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries. The haters of the Lord should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured forever. He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee” (Psalms 81:10-16). Now why did God not do all these things that He spoke about for the Israelites? Verse 11 holds the answer to this question, “But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me”. Listening and obeying the voice of God is key to your advancement in life. When you listen to God, He will give you the finest of wheat with honey! If you are saying you do not know how or where to hear the voice of God, which will lead you to the greatest prosperity and success of your life, you need to look at Luke 10:16. It says, “He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me (Luke 10:16)”. When you listen to a disciple of Jesus speaking, you are hearing God himself speak. The other thing you can see when it comes to a minister who is speaking the word of God is despisement. The two main responses we have to God’s word is to listen or to set it aside. I have been despised many times. When you preach and somebody sets it aside, you realize they do not value it. To despise is to cast off, set aside and disesteem. In other words, to lower and neutralize. What people do not realize is that when you set aside God’s word, you have belittled it to the words of a man. All you have to do is despise the servant of God and you have despised Jesus and God. It is a chain reaction. There is no station or network that is directly tuned to God’s voice from heave. You will have to deal with people to hear the voice of God. Receive the grace to recognize and know the voice of God in this year of good things.

VOICES

Today, I want to share with you about voices, especially the most important voice of all which is the voice of God. This teaching can also be found in my book “The Art of Hearing”.

“For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: (1 Peter 1:16-19).”

The voice of God is a very important subject because that is where all blessings begin. No matter who speaks, there is a prophesy that is surer which is the word of God. The word of God is not respected by Christians. Unless you use special clichés or phrases, people do not think that you are wise when you speak in accordance with the word of God. However, all these wise sayings are in the Bible but phrased in a different way. The Bible is advertising itself saying that we have a more sure word of prophecy. So, whatever you think will happen, the Bible is clearly predicting that it will come to pass. It says, “whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place” (1 Peter 1:19). When you take heed, it is like a man in a dark place who sees a light shining to show him how to maneuver. If you have ever been in a dark place where you can hurt yourself, you will be grateful for light. That is what the word of God is. The word of God is greater than anything I can ever say or any prophecy I can ever give. You need to be careful of being impressed with the prophecies you receive more than the word of God. The word of God will happen so correctly and exact that it is almost unbelievable. I want to encourage you to stay with the Bible. Believe and be impressed by God’s wisdom. Nobody is wiser above God himself.

All we need is the voice of God to guide us but there are many kinds of voices in this world. “There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification” (1 Corinthians 14:10). Every voice has an effect. If you joke with it, you will find yourself in grave danger. What are these voices?

  1. The voice of God
  2. The voice of your flesh. This is your emotions. Your flesh will resist any form of hardship you attempt to put it through.
  3. The voice of your mind. This is logic and reasoning. You cannot just follow reasoning
  4. The voice of the devil. You must know when the devil is speaking no matter who he is speaking through. Jesus was so in tune with the many types of voices that when Satan spoke through His main disciple Peter, He was able to recognize it. No matter how close people are to you, when you hear certain phrases, you must recognize and rebuke it.
  5. The voice of a prophet. “And by a prophet the Lord brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved” (Hosea 12:13).
  6. The voice of the Bible. The Bible has the voice of God’s words
  7. The voice of your friends. Friends are with you more than your pastor, parents or anybody else. So, they have greater influence on you. If you have the wrong kind of friend, you are doomed
  8. The voice of your parents. Those who fail to listen to the voice of their parents start to descend like an elevator in free fall. Your parents may not be the best according to your standards but I would advice you to listen to them.
  9. The voice of your spirit which is the inner man.
  10. The voice of your spouse. This is another strong voice that can influence you. You can sometimes find yourself in a bad situation because you listened to this voice.
  11. The voice of circumstances.
  12. The voice of your own will.

From today, receive grace to recognize the voice of God in your life!

THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIS WILL

I want to share with you on the very important topic of the knowledge of the will of God. For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the [k]knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding (Colossians 1:9 NASB).

Colossians 1:9 tells us that we need to be filled with the knowledge of His will. Many people come into this world and are advised by their parents to study hard in in school. We are encouraged to know many things but very few people teach and emphasize the importance of knowing the will of God. Knowing the will of God is more important than what you learn in school. It must be, because God is greater than anything in this world. If you carefully analyze, you notice that going to school does not change who you are. That is why you will see a doctor, educated in some countries, eating and surrounded by flies. Knowing what God has made is greater than what man has made. When man has made you a pharmacist, it is far less than God making you a sanguineous person. You cannot change that by going to school. It is important for us to discover the reason why God has allowed us to be alive. When I became 50 years old, I was particularly grateful to God because I felt He had allowed me to see 50 years, had preserved me and still had a reason for me to be alive. There must be something more to my life than eating meat. Whether you do one thing or another, everyone eats meat. It cannot be that the reason for you to be alive is just to exist and be like an animal. There must be a purpose! That is why Paul says that “since the day we heard of it [that you have been saved], we have not ceased to pray for you and ask that you be filled with the knowledge of His will.”

If you do not know the purpose of His will, you become useless. There once was a man who worked for a billionaire. This man went to the billionaire’s yatch and saw another man sitting down on his own personal yatch. In his many inquiries, he found out that the man had been diagnosed with cancer and did not know what to do. He was just waiting to die. When you are told you are going to die, what do you do? When you are not conscious of death, you have little things in front of you that keep you moving. When we come to the world, we are given little “rabbits” to chase. We are given the education rabbit, beloved rabbit, marriage rabbit and many things to occupy our times. However, when you analyze it, you realize that you are really going nowhere.

You are a failure when you are not in the will of God. Why is this? Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture” (Psalm 100:3). The one who has created an invention knows what it is purposed for. God has made each of us for something and we can never say we know better. One day in Mozambique, somebody had a fish farm. In that farm were many fish that came to the top of the water. I asked the people that were with me if they could catch one of the fish. Somebody caught one and put the fish where we were. The fish was struggling as though it was in an intensive care unit because it had been taken out of the place it was destined to be. When the fish was put back in its rightful place, it surged and swam with such ease. That is how you are when you are in the will of God. You are like a magician swimming with ease in the waters. When you are taken out of His will and made to do something you were not created to do, that is when confusion arises. It is so important to know the will of God because it is not so obvious to know what to do. Thank God for the knowledge of school, cooking and much more but desire to know above all those things the will of God for your life. 2018 is your year of knowing the will of God that will lead you into good things!

THE MYSTERY OF HIS WILL

As we enter this new year, we enter into a season of prayer and fasting. During this time, it is important that we pray about the will of God concerning our lives. The Bible says Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself” (Ephesians 1:9).

God’s will is mysterious. A mystery is something you do not completely understand or see. That is why when we say something like the mystery of the missing car, it begs the question how did the car go missing? Now Ephesians 1:9 says “having made known unto us the MYSTERY of his will”. So, the will of God is also mysterious. It is not something that is easy to see or understand. There are many mysterious things in this world that we do not see but yet accept. We have to seek for the mysterious will of God. There is nothing more mysterious than Jesus dying on the cross. How can it possibly be sensible that such a thing should have happened? When Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane, he prayed to God And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt” (Matthew 26:39). In other words, when you are in human flesh, it is not so easy to know what to do. That is why it is called a mystery, because it is not so obvious what is the right thing to do in your life: who to be with, who to marry, who to be your friend, what will make you prosper. It is mysterious. This is why we must believe that God’s will is mysterious and therefore must be sought.

When you think about it, you do not actually know yourself. How much more then what to do? You do not actually know what is in you or the secrets of your heart. If this is true, how can you even know what is right for you? Nobody would have ever believed that Germany could have possibly killed so many people during Hitler’s reign. Who could have imagined so much evil could come from one region? We do not know how evil we truly are. It is only when it touches us personally do we recognize it as being bad. Would you then trust yourself to make the best decisions for your life? Why not trust in God and His mysterious decisions for your life instead? In 2018, determine to live according to the will of God!

2018 OUR YEAR OF GOOD THINGS – THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF SALVATION

The year 2017 has ended by God’s grace! Whatever harassed you in 2017 has ended with that last year. You have leapt out of 2017 victoriously. As 2017 has ended, your enemies that felt as though they had held on to you have let you go. Your long awaited new things and good things are now in your life in 2018.

As you have entered this new year, you must strive to stay connected to God. In order to do this, you must force to live according to the commandments of salvation given to us by God. But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak” (Hebrews 6:9). When you are saved, there are things that  accompany your salvation and God expects you to live by this.

“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works” (Titus 2:11-15). The verse tells us that, the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared. This grace and this salvation has taught us that the first commandment of salvation is denying ungodliness (Titus 2:12). You must learn to say no to all things that are ungodly. The fact that we are Christians is supposed to matter but unfortunately, people do not realize that there are things that accompany salvation. Once Christ is named upon you, there must be something Christ like about you. Christianity goes along with certain principles. It is not just floating along and doing as you please. In 2018, you have received the grace to deny ungodliness.

An additional commandment of salvation is denying worldly lusts (Titus 2:12). Now what is lust? Lusts are animal desires. These desires include sleep, eating, having sex, etc. You have to control your desires. Your desires cannot control you. Another commandment of salvation is to live soberly (Titus 2:12). To live soberly speaks of not being under the influence of something. We must all be under the influence of God and His word. When you are controlled by someone, it is said that you are bewitched (Galatians 3:1). There cannot be something that takes over your life and controls you to make judgments that are out of place. Money, status and education should not influence. Rather, as we have entered into a new year, strive to be controlled by the Holy Spirit and the word of God! Finally, become a person zealous of good works in this new year (Titus 2:14). In 2018, you will do more good works. Serving God and doing good works is your master key to being delivered from your enemy. To be free from Pharaoh is to serve God. Serving God is being free from what captures you and puts you in bondage. In 2018, you will be zealous of good works. In 2018, your life will be a righteous one. In this new year, you will stand into good things. I see 2018 truly being your year of good things! The prophecy you believe is what will practically happen to you!

THE GREAT EVANGELIST IN AFRICA – MOZAMBIQUE EDITION

The year 2017 saw the Healing Jesus Campaign team all over Africa. This year, the door was opened for the team to visit the Southern countries of Africa and they found themselves in the country of Mozambique during their first season.

The first campaign found the team in Maxixe. There were over 30,000 souls gathered to witness the Evangelist deliver the word of God. Many were delivered from devils, healed of their infirmities and a lady who was bent over for many years received her healing and stood up straight for the first time in front of the crowd. Jesus Christ is a healing Jesus and the city of Maxixe has surely been transformed and won for God.

The cities of Xai-Xai and Maputo also graciously welcomed the campaign team with over 100,000 people in attendance in Maputo. There were many notable miracles witnessed by all who were in attendance. Some of these miracles included a little boy who had never walked since birth receive healing and the ability to walk. Countless other people also received healing in their legs and walked away without their wheelchairs. To God be the glory for all the wonderful miracles that were wrought in Mozambique and the beautiful nation will never be the same.

THE LIGHT CONFERENCE – MANILA, PHILIPPINES

I have had the wonderful privilege of ministering at this year’s Light Pastors & Leaders Conference in Manila, Philippines this past week. It was an honor to be at the Cathedral of Praise under the leadership of Pastor David Sumrall. In Manila, we witnessed many miracles and testimonies of salvation, of healing, miracle money, good news and many other things. I also had the privilege of sharing the word of God on several of the days. On one of the days, I had the opportunity to share from my book “The Anointed and His Anointing” and the importance of having the anointing. What a blessed time it was to be in Manila!
