THE MESSAGE NOW

Vol. 8, No. 3 – Sunday, 15th January, 2023

(Hag.2:1-9)

I AM WITH YOU

Let me begin with this certification in deed and in truth by noting that the import of the above statement that I AM WITH YOU is such that is yet to be understood by many Christian.

In many instances and in many passages of the Holy Scripture, this statement is replete. How so weighty this statement is. How? First it commits God to any situation or to anyone to which and to whom the statement is applied. Second, it is the signature of the Almighty over any and every situation over which it is pronounced.

Israel’s furnace of affliction in Egypt was so great and so intense that their doom was certain but for the fact that God Almighty was with them. No wonder! It is written: “Behold, the bush burned with fire, but the bush was not consumed”; alas! It is because I AM WITH YOU.

Ask Joseph, the son of Jacob and him who became the Prime Minister of Egypt, how he moved from being a common prisoner to becoming a palace commander and the financial ruler of the greatest civilization at the time. Joseph would provide no other answer other than the fact that God was with him; I AM with you.

Ah! How I wish and at the same time, pray that Christians would understand that merely saying, “Lord, please be with me as I embark on this journey,” “O God, please be with me as I retire to bed tonight,” Or “dear father, please be with me in this marriage or business,” will do the same miracle and would even open up doors of revelations as though one prayed for one hour or more.

Is there no reason why the name of the Lord as was prophesied by prophet Isaiah is Emmanuel meaning “God with us?” Having handed down instructions concerning the great commission in Matthew chapter 28:18-20, The Lord Jesus concluded by saying, “And lo, I AM WITH YOU even unto the end of the world.”

If God was invited into a business, would the business fail? If God was invited into the life of the sick fellow, would there not be a change? How about inviting God into our finances?

The great Man of God, prophet Moses knew too well about the mystery behind “God with us.” Amidst many other fact which he knew, Moses was sure that ‘I AM WITH YOU” means and ushers in the presence of the Almighty (Ex.33:14-15).

IN THE END, NO MATTER HOW TOUGH THE SITUATION HAS COME TO be: SIMPLY INVITE GOD TODAY INTO THE SITUATION. I DID SO IN MY UNDERGRADUATE DAYS ON A DAY THAT THE OUTCOME AWAITING ME WAS DISGRACE AND DISAPPOINTMENT BUT DIVINE APPOINTMENT WAS THE RESULT IN THE END. AND SINCE THEN, IT IS STILL WORKING FOR ME. THEREFORE, START AFRESH WITH GOD TODAY.

 

Question and Answer Section

Question: The great questions again! When was the last time you preached to any soul? Do you serve God with joyful heart or with reluctance? How much hurt is in your soul against that fellow? Won’t rather forgive them and forget their mischief so that you can rightly serve your loving Father? When was the last time you smiled genuinely and truly from your heart about yourself bearing in mind the bright days to come? when was the last time you heard a force praying within your belly without your consciousness? When was the last time you gave something to support God’s work apart from your tithes and offerings? When was the last time you supported any man to fulfill a divine or a personal agenda? When was the last time you put smile on the face of someone?

Answer: Hmmm!

HYMN: Yield Not To Temptation For Yielding Is Sin

O God, I invite you into the following issues of my life.

COVENANT BREAKTHROUGH SERVICE

MONTHLY COVENANT PRAYER SESSION:
VIGIL: July 2023 –August 2023;
Time: 11:30 P.M. to 12:30 A.M.;
DATE: Monday 31st July 2023 to Tuesday 1st August 2023;

Monthly Scripture: Deuteronomy 33:23

FAITH DECLARATION: re-echo these Scriptures (Psalms 59, 64 and 70) in the ears of the Almighty for divine preservation, speedy progress and prosperity for yourself and your loved ones:

CONFESSION: Confess the following decrees and declarations with resounding faith that cannot be resisted nor denied:
The Word of this great Strength of Israel that cannot lie speaks: “For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.” Oh! Is it not also written in the Word of the Mighty One of Jacob that “But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me;my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.” I know and I believe that surely, by two immutable things, it is forever impossible for God to lie. Although He formed man in His own likeness, yet He is not a man that He should lie: neither will He ever be the son of man who can be prone to repentance.
Therefore, God cannot lie and I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus: and He, God, has promised to bless the righteous and also compass the righteous about with favour as with a shield; then by Christ’s mercy, I qualified for the favour of God. In this connection therefore, I cry out tonight for the unusual favour of God.
Let there be, I command, a change of my garment this hour. In mercy, the garment of Joshua the High Priest was changed and another was clad upon him. God is the same in the Old Testament and in the Nerw Testament. So, Thou Spirit of favour, envelope me, overshadow me and clothe me because I am now set for a new dawn. That from the foundation that has tied me down must of necessity let me go and go free now in Jesus name.
O my new dawn, appear by the Word of the Lord! My chariot of progress, prosperity and peace, by the favour of God, appear and soar me up to the next level. O you shackles of failure, disappointment, delay and countless struggles, your time is up and over. Yokes of every kind, evil patterns, negative pronouncements, satanic covenants and curses of all sorts, the dawn of the Spirit of favour has come. Therefore, you have no choice but to release me.
Upon my name, the work of my hands,, my family, my career, my business, my ministry and all that concerns me, the signature of favour has arrived. Spirit of Favour, accompany me; Spirit of favour, abide with me; Spirit of favour, come into my case and situations, and be the active agent of my next level, in Jesus name.

HOUR OF HEAVENLY SHOWER: pick up these Scriptures (Psalms 124, 129, 136, and, speak gladdening and celebratory words to Jehovah with a heart opened up to the Most High for an utterance of the Spirit of the Lord.

Psalm 24:1
Declaration:
“The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” Therefore, since the Lord, the possessor of heaven and earth created all the world, I take charge over this whole environment of my abode now. I demand that every spirit contrary to God go into captivity now. I cease and imprison every power been operated by any evil neighbour now. You glory users; feeding on the glory of God like men feed on loaves of bread, by the One who created heaven and earth, and the authority with which He did so, I paralyse you all now, and I render you impotent. Powers in and around this vicinity that are opposed to the propagation and establishment of the gospel of Christ, the entrenchment of peace and the flourishing of prosperity, because the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein, I sack you all now. O Spirit of the Gospel of God, O dear blessed Spirit that raised Christ from the dead, brood, move and take over all my surroundings, these whole environment and vicinity now. Let every foul spirit and presence disappear now. O blood of the everlasting covenant, the blood of Jesus, spread over and take over me, my world, my home, my family, my entire environment from this day, from this hour and from this week.

The walls of Jerusalem, because of the intervention of the Almighty, were finished before time. Therefore, you covenant of no and slow progress, I terminate your existence. give you every slow moving destiny issue this set time to hit the realm of reality in my life. In six days, God completed the construction of the whole earth; He rested on the seventh day. Angels of Jehovah, begin to lend helping hands to me and my situations. What will take others ten years to accomplish, in my case and over —— programme, situations or projects of my life, I decree this day, this hour and this week, they shall take me only ten month.

Psalm 29:11

Declaration:

“And the Lord will give strength unto His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace.” Therefore, it is written: “The joy of the Lord is my strength.” I give you your due praise dear Jehovah for in it and through it is my strength. Your name, your house, your splendour and your majesty are all worthy. You saved my soul, you redeemed me from lack, losses and every disaster; my praise to you, you deserve. The wonders of your hands towards me are without count or number. Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! Hallowed be your name. O praiseworthy Jehovah, I draw my strength this day, this hour and this week from your kindness. Therefore, from henceforth, my prayer life, receive fresh dew from heaven. My finances, received fresh grace, anointing and strength. Situations and circumstances of all kinds challenging the Almighty in my life collide against the strength of Jehovah now.

Proverbs 5:21-23
Declaration:
“21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and He pondereth all his goings.
22 His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.
23 He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.”
Therefore, “O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end.” You spirit and strength of sin, I break your cords and hold from my soul. You enemy called sin, you are the strongest tool in the hand of Satan used to cause all forms of hindrances, obstacles, delay and all wicked experiences. By the strength of righteous and the finished work of Christ on the cross of Calvary, I defeat you wholly and eternally. O Thou enemy, you actions of the night and day against me are sure sins against God and before the heavenly Father. So, as God, in 1 Kings 22:19-22, allowed a lying spirit to deceive Ahab onto his destruction, so may my heavenly Father cause your destruction to come swiftly upon you without you knowing but by you believing in your falsehood.
Circles of limitation around me caused by sin or by the wickedness of men and Satan, O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end, by reason of this unfailing word, I break free from you now. I shall never return to Lo Debar.
I decree this day, this hour and this week, that the presence of Jehovah visits me afresh. I decree this day, this hour and this week that my spirit man is renewed anew and reinvigorated with the strength of the Most High.
My garment is changed and brightened to blinding righteousness. I move forward this day, this hour and this week in my new heavenly cloak attracting me to God my Father and to everything of greatness and glory. In Jesus name, Amen.

Jeremiah 31:16
Declaration:
“Thus saith the Lord; refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the Lord; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy.” Therefore, this day, this hour and this week henceforth, have I now decreed that my dark moments are finally over. There is an expiry moment to every problem; is it not written that “to everything there is a time and a season under heaven?” Is it not equally written that “weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning?” By the aligning of the written and the spoken word of Jehovah, I terminate every season of weeping in my life. Exceeding joy is my portion. Over —— situations and circumstances in my life, concerning my children, my business, endeavours of all kinds, it is now the turn of celebration.
