(Lev.13:6, 14, 46, Num.5:2-3, Lk.17:11-19)

(Part 4)

Welcome to the penultimate edition of the little things that count. All the texts in today’s edition of The Message Now are all worthy of careful study and deep meditation.

To start with, there is the account about the ten lepers in Luke chapter 17 from verses 11 to 19. At their requests, the healing presence of the Lord made those ten lepers whole. But ever wonder why the Lord requested them to go and show themselves to the priest?

The ultimate answer is in the little things that count. By clear spiritual injunction, certain people and ailments were not permitted to enter into either the congregation or to come near the altar of the Lord during the Old Testament era.

It was a little thing at least to the relations of such people. But to God it counted so much. Lepers in particular were not allowed into the temple or into the camp following Mosaic Law of God (see Lev.13:46 and Num.5:2-3).

The obvious reason was in order to avoid pollution or the spread of such ailments to other people because of their contagious nature. Of course, in the Old Testament, lepers had bells attached to their waist so that as they moved the bells jingled to inform the public that an unclean personality was ahead and passers-by needed to be watchful.

So, in one sense, lepers were outcasts: they were such people without societal acceptance. So then, the Lord knowing that His own healing presence had made them whole referred them to the priest for purposes of confirmation of their present health status, for reacceptance back into the congregation, the removal of untoward public stigma and shame and for the purpose of pronouncing their testimony by the priest.

However, there is always a further mystery in everything the Lord does. By instructing the lepers to go and show themselves to the priest, the Lord was fulfilling and futher encouraging a little thing but which counts so much as already laid down in Leviticus 13:6 and 14.

It is the little thing called medical test and medical confirmation. The human body is programmed by God in such a way that you are well-informed ahead of any physical disturbance in the system.

Vol. 3, No. 17 – Monday, 23rd April, 2018



 Someone has said: ‘life is like a looking glass, and it gives back to everyone the reflection of his/her face’. It is no falsehood that everything we do to others will eventually return at some point to either hail us or haunt us.

Did you really and clearly see that phrase, haunt us? All of today’s texts open our minds to certain truths that we all already know. But perhaps to some of us they are little things. Agreed, some of them may be little things and indeed insignificant, but they really count.

Just holding Moses hand whilst the battle raged on may not mean too much. But take note that that little service of hand-holding was responsible for the great victory won that day. Questioning oneself about hard truths is surely one of the best ways of showing signs of sincerity and a mark of readiness to be better.

So, would you ask yourself the question about the last time you prayed for your pastor or leader? An empty tank is just empty and, such can dispense nothing but emptiness. Agreed, anointing comes from God.

But sincere pastors will always know that it is not by their effort but by God through that pastor’s little efforts, much more from God and the spiritual contributions of that pastor’s flock. If anointing and pastoral success are as a result of his little efforts, God’s great efforts and the contributions of others and those others are equally the beneficiaries of that same anointing, God forbid, should that pastor fail, will he alone be blamed?

Vol. 3, No. 16 – Monday, 16th April, 2018

(Matt.22:36-40, Ps.90:12)

Welcome to this edition of The Message Now. Pray the following prayers with spiritual zest and vigour.

(1) Glorious doors that my character has shut against me, O God, reopen them by your mercy.
(2) Satanic hands shutting breakthrough doors against me, be cut by the sword of the Lord.
(3) Frustraters and detractors around and against me, scatter and your former union and weapons wage war against you.
(4) By the power and the mercy of God, I shall not be a dog that goes back to its vomit.
(5) Activities of the night that render my day useless, stop by the command of God.
(6) O God, issue a command from heaven that will disperse my problems into oblivion and scatter my enemies onto eternal disarray.



Verse 39 of the first text in today’s edition of The message Now reads: ‘and the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself’.

Ever wonder why the Lord admonished us to love our neighbours as ourselves? Would the Lord have been wrong if He raised the bars as high as saying: ‘love your neighbor more than yourself’?

Perhaps one answer is to say that the Lord will not demand from man that which exceeds the limit of man’s ability. Wouldn’t such a conclusion be right? Undoubtedly so.

Perhaps again, another answer is to say that fair balance especially in interpersonal relationships is the fulcrum for equality and the promoter of long lasting friendship. Very true.

After all, the Lord respects principles a great deal. One such principle in this connection is the instructive will of the Lord in Matthew chapter 7 verse 12. This principle reads: ‘whatsoever ye shall have men do unto you, do ye likewise unto them’.

It is an equilibrium principle expressing the ideals of reciprocity. But as I have argued elsewhere and still maintain even here: Scriptures are the only panacea for judging and explaining other Scriptures.

Besides, One Scripture contains multiplicity of interpretations depending on the context. It is as the matter of a coin. It cannot be judged by only one side because it possesses two.

Vol. 3, No. 15 – Monday, 9th April, 2018

(Micah.6:1, Luke.18:1, 1 Thess.5:17)

Welcome to this edition of The Message Now. In a bid to make this spiritual magazine richer and more interesting, we have decided to include a question and answer session at the end of each week’s message. We hope that it adds more to your repertoire of knowledge. But let it not be a priority over and above the spiritual message of each week. Be blessed.



Beloved, is this not already the second quarter of the year? And, so many are your desires and aspirations yet awaiting physical manifestation. Is it not hightime to cry more seriously to the Lord?

Therefore, with serious spiritual agony in your heart, pray the following prophetic prayers expecting to receive from the ever good God.

(1) My name, my honour, be delivered.
(2) O satanic referees officiating the affairs of my life, I sack you today.
(3) Every prison accommodating me and my success story, let your walls crash now.
(4) O forces countering and cancelling out my most fervent prayers, hand of fire from the Lord, go out in rage against them.
(5) You satanic spiritual twin harvesting my blessings, I sack and paralyse you today.
(6) Every enemy of God who is my friend, repent or be disgraced.
(7) Pharaohs of delay, Goliaths of harassment, Herods and Sennacherub of embarrassment, shame and death, I retire you and frustrate you.
(8) O hand of God, do a remarkable thing in my life for which I will celebrate you.
(9) Read Psalm 29 (and say): Foundations speaking evil against me, collide against the voice of God.
(10) Read Ezekiel 37:1 (and say): Pregnant and expecting sisters in this Ministry, receive the touch of Christ’s hand.

(1 Peter 2:9, Ephesians 5:20, Philippians 4:6)


Happy Easter to everyone, in the name of the Lord Jesus, Amen. In this edition of The Message Now, I want to begin by reminding us what most of us do not want to hear because some of us are now so discouraged.
 That reminder is this: 2018 is by far a better and brighter year than the several years past. For many, their best year was the year they got married. And, since that year, there has been no other.
Even your unbelief will not hinder this prophecy from breaking into reality: that by the mercy of God, 2018 will be by far sweeter than that year of your marriage or whatever year before now, in the name of the Lord Jesus.
Apart from the earlier editions of The Message Now (and the divine principles therein stated to be followed), here is a series of topics that will catapult you this year into your greatness. It is the series titled ‘Little Things That Count’.
For today, there is a little thing which counts so much to God but viewed as unimportant to man and by man. The trouble is that this very important thing which counts so much to God cannot be performed by God for Himself but by man for God.
