Religion never saves
It was quite unusual as I woke up early this morning and when I checked my phone to have an idea whether it is 5AM already, I was amazed to see that it was just barely after 2AM.
Not that I didnt know the reason why I woke up that early but I was really pressed at that moment to pray but I struggled with it for some minutes asking myself what exactly do I need to pray about but the longing to pray was quite heavy on me.
What to pray about, I dont have an inkling but after some few minutes.I stood up from where I lied down and I obeyed my Spirit-man.
Even at the point of standing up and lying on my couch to pray,I didnt have the connection needed to communicate with God but my Spirit-man was just bent on forcing me to pray.
Then, I kept asking myself about what I am going to use as a content or a subject of my prayer but I was bothered that precious time being wasted in the middle of the night when others around are busy enjoying their sleep with the favourable weather we are blessed with recently.
Recently, there have been a continuos unabated downpour since we are in the raining or wet season and wet season in a coastal city or environment are always cool and wet in the real sense of it.Only God knows the last time we have a mild beam of sunshine.Everyday has been filled with clouds with every available space being wet and filled with water and residents have been cautious of putting on cloths that can stand the present realities in order to be prevented from flu and cold or other communicable diseases that accompany wet season.
Back to my subject matter.
Hope someone we read this simple epistle that is a practical addition to my spiritual life.I am putting it down as a prophecy that will serve as a source of building and edification to anyone who is yearning and serious in developing in the realm of spirituality.
After a little period of lying down on my couch,initially I wanted to relieve the burden and heaviness in my spirit that is not allowing me to know what I should prayed about by going into praises and worship as this is what I was taught by many of my spiritual teachers and leaders but I refused because of the fact that if I entered into the realm of praise and worship, I might end up constituting a nuisance to others that are busy sleeping especially my wife and my little daughter.
At the point of thinking about this, my spirit spoke to me that if you want to know about what to pray about, start your prayer by speaking in tongues because this will clear and remove all the clogs that are blocking your sensitivity to what that needs to be prayed about.
Immediately, I yielded to this instruction, there was a free flow of prayer contents and I was able to pray freely without having any resistance and restriction in knowing what to pray about
This experience is one in a million to me.It is a raw personal encounter with the Holy Spirit and this has been my yearnings for long because I desired being led by the Holy Spirit in order to know what to do per time at the appropriate time because this makes someone to live a life that is devoid of errors and mistakes in the physical and in the spirit realm.
Nothing makes our walk with God amusing and less stressful when we are accompanied by the Holy Spirit.This is the reason why Jesus Christ promised the disciples at the point of His exit that He will send the Holy Spirit to them after His ressurrection and the Holy Spirit was called the comforter that will be around to explian other things that are not clear to the disciple, and forty days after Jesus Christ resurrected from the dead, as all the disciples were in the upper room, the Holy Spirit descended on them and they started speaking in a strange language on the day of pentecost.This was the moment of explosive encounter the world has yet to recover from because it is on this day that every believer of our Lord Jesus Christ was endued with power that can subdued principalities and powers of darkness–Acts of the Apostle 2.
Your development and maturity in christianity starts at the point when Holy Spirit is involved in your approach to things that pertains to spirituality.
The Holy Spirit is a teaching Spirit that is commissioned to comfort us in our journey in Christianity and to explain deep spiritual things to us that seems to defeat physical human comprehension.
Everyone who engages the Holy Spirit in seeking the face of God on the altar of prayer will have a smooth and a stress-free prayer life without any doubt because it helps in coveying our request to the throne of Grace directly without the prince of persia standing in the gap to block the response to the answered prayers like that of Daniel.–Daniel 10 verse 13.
Another purpose of the Holy Spirit in our journey in spirituality is that is is a fervent partner that helps in dousing fear and it helps in boosting our faith whenever we are down with doubt and our trust in God seems to be fizzling and fading out.No spirit and tongue filled christian will ever remain fearful and doubtful because the Holy Spirit is a powerful and a fearful force that no demon and principality can withstand His presence when we are on the altar of prayer.
Speaking in tongue is the heavenly language of the Holy Spirit that is an identity of communicating expressly directly with God without any interference with any environmental and territorial demonic forces that might want to stand against prayers of believers.
This is the encounter I had early this morning and it is an addition to my spiritual strength.
Without any doubt, God has been faithful.
The 5th of July 2017 is a precious day in my entire family that I cannot forget as long as I am still breathing.It is a day that is a simple confirmation of the fact that no human on the surface of the earth has any reason to throw in the towel and give up.
Winners never quit and quitters never win.
This is my story.
Are you ready?
Let me share my story with you.
The 13th of December 2017 was a great day in my family as my brother who happenned to be the last born and the last of the three men my mother gave birth to walked down the isle and tied the knuptial knot with his hearthrob.
Though I was unable to attend the wedding due to the nature of my official duty that is quite demanding but the wedding was succesful and everything went the way it has been planned and projected.
It is expected that every marriage must be fruitful after some months into the marriage but this marriage I am writing about failed to produce a child and it became a very sensitive issue that everybody keeps believing God for.
Many stories and incidence of miscarriages became the order of the day and at a point, our hope for this marriage becoming fruitful was out of view.
The only thing we hold on to was our faith in God that has promised never to leave us nor forsake us—Hebrew 13 verse 15.
Days started counting with weeks and months adding up to make a year and years keeps adding up from 2014 up till 2017.The marriage seems to be barren.
In the course of this year,like two months ago,while in a mobile telephone conversation with my sister, she informed me that my brother’s wife is now an expectant mother that we should pray for a succesful delivery.
Since the moment I received this message, I have raised an altar of prayer for the succesful delivery of my brother’s wife.
On the 5th of July 2017, i received a call from my sister who happenned to be the only woman my mum had and the first born of the house that my brother’s wife called me that my brother’s wife is already in the hospital in preparation for delivery and she asked me to pray along but all i told her was that she should not worry that she is coming out of the hospital strong with a baby looking healthy.
Few hours after this conversation, another call was received by me through my sister again that she had delivered a bouncing baby boy.
It was on this incidence that the glory of God descended on us in our family and the barrenness and delay close to three years now was terminated and destroyed.
It would have been three years by 2017 December without an issue but God disgraced the devil and gave the entire family reason to be glad and rejoice.
My brothers and sisters with all my friends,what is that issue bothering your mind and you think all hope is lost?
What you need is to believe in God that is interested in making you happy by fulfilling all promises made by Him.
There is no need to give up as long as we are still breathing.
Giving up is for the cowards but those who are strong and fearless are seen to be brave without loosing any battle.
God is not yet ready to loose any battle no matter how inconsequential and insignificant it might be.
For you to live a winning life, there is a need for you to know and believe a God that has never lost any battle because the battles of life are real and they are quite different from every other battles being fought in the physical.Battles of life are real ,invisible and spiritual but with help of God, they are not invicible.
God is never too late to attend to your situations and turn around your circumstances for your good.God is the omnipresent that is busy doing the right thing that will make you realise the purpose of God for your life.
To humans, God might be slow but in the midst of God slowness, God is busy using time to perfect the situation around you.
God has promised to turn every issue in your life to an occasion of testimony–Luke 21 verse 13.
With this, why do you have to give up when God is just starting with you?
Why are you complaining and murmuring?
Is it becoming too late?
God is never late.
God always answer us at the right time .
God always show up at a time when all hope has been lost.
No matter what you might be passing through now, God is telling you to slow down and look at what He has started doing in your life.
God has done it in my family and God has promised to do more but what is remaining is that you have to be patient to allow God to finish the work HE started in your life.
Just as my family received their bundles of Joy,so it has been confirmed that you will receive your bundles of Joy at the appropriate time and season.
Dont give up!!!
Your miracle is on the way!!!
Just keep trusting God!!!
God has promised to fulfill all His promises concerning you whether the devil likes it of not.
No matter how turbulent the tidal waves might be, God has promised to stay with you and grant you a safe landing at the right moment.
For it is written:
“Those who put their trust in God shall never be put to sahme”—-Romans 10 verse 11.
As it is written concerning my brother having a child after almost three years,everyone of us should remember that those who wait upon the Lord shall be strong .
No matter what it will take,
I will admonish you to wait,
For God to perfect that which that conerns you.
No matter the time,
No matter the wasted years,
It is better to wait now.
Never give up!!!

As parents, guardians, wards, it’s our deepest desire to see our children happy, successful, amiable, virtuous and role models. We would sacrifice anything to see them happy and out of danger. Won’t we?. We would even go as far as denying ourselves happiness, comforts, just to make them happy and succeed in all their endeavours. […]
It is exactly one year that I push this write-up across.I stumbled on it right now and I believed it will have an impart and impacts on my readers in their desire to understand the purpose of life through the message of redemption.
And it goes thus:
The quality of our life is a function of the quality of life we spend with divinity.A life guarded and guilded by rules and regulations of divinity that has its core values derived from God through the throne of grace can never be devoid of authority and influence on earth.
The commandment of God and every other dictates of the word of God was given to us for the purpose of:
Every genuine believer has been commissioned and empowered to be an influence to our world and it is pertinent for all to achieve this feat by relying and living our lifes in accordance to the will of God through the spoken word of God.
Every word of God is a pointer to the essence and purpose of creator for all creation which must be strictly adhered to for every follower of God to achieve the beauty inherent in the destiny given by God.
The purpose of our destiny remained unachievable until it is centred around and programmed around the word of God.
The call for salvation or redemption is not just an appeal for a change of life and, it is not just a call to live in fear and being timid.The call of God is a call to influence every sphere of human endeavour.It is pertinent to point out that the world will remain chaotic and unsettled until every believer has the understanding that they are purposed to influence their environment.
Leadership in the world has been filled with people that knows little or nothing about the purpose of God for humanity because children of God that were destined to be the light of the world are unconcerned with happennings around them while on earth due to the fact that they are busy waiting for the last day when they will be raptured to meet God in heaven.This can be submitted to be ignorance and lack of understanding on their part.
Being oblivious that one of the purpose given to every child of God on earth is duplicating the beauty of heaven while on earth is against the will of God.
Since it is a known fact that everything heavenly stands above all, so every believer that is heavenly conscious must be above every challenge and circumstances on earth because we have been destined to be above all in every ramification of life.
Many child of God give up when God is just starting with them due to their lack of understanding that God’s way are not our ways and God’s thought are not our thought.
It is expedient for every child of God to take up their place of dominion while on earth.No child of God is redeemed to be timid and to be a coward and a push over.Salvation make us to be fearless like a lion and swift like the Eagle.Salvation makes the best in us to be triggered and used for the betterment of the larger society.
The time is ripe and rife for every child of God to take up the role of leadership they are destined for.Being leaders in the church is not enough because our call to leadership and influence permeates every barrier and they are meant for the world in its entirety.
Being a lion in the church but a chicken outside the church is not scriptural and it is against the will of God for mankind.It is an abberration of the purpose of God for redemption and a deviation from the path God laid down for us to tread upon .
God’s intention in its originality at this moment is for children of God to take over the mantle of leadership and rule the world in accordance to the will of God and in accordance to the benefit and elevation of the people.
No doubt about it, I know the purpose of salvation or redemption for my life by having a deep understanding through the word of God and I am living my life in accordance to the manuscripts of divinity for all mankind.
I am redeemed to rule the world.
I am redeemed to silence my enemies.
I am redeemed to be trail blazer.
I am redeemed to be the head but not the tail.
I am redeemed to be above all.
What about you?
Do you know and understand the purpose of God for your life?
Are you living in the reality of the purpose of God for your life?
If yes, congratulations.
If no, you need to discover yourself by discovering the almightiness of God through belief, repentance and a mutual walk with the God of heaven who created all that is available here on earth.
God wants you to be free and become fearless by being free from sins and trangressions that are hindering your efforts and desire to live a sin free lifestyle which is the whole essence of redemption by confessing your sins with a promise that you wont be like the dog that will go back to its vomit.
God is too holy to behold iniquities, so there is a need for every believer to live a life that is free from sin and all its similitude.It is at the point when we are sure of been free from iniquities that the purpose of God for our lifes will emerge for the entire world to benefit fom such emergence.
Without mincing words, the world needs us more than we need ourselves.Going by the myriads of challenges that the world is filled with,it is until when every child of God becomes genuinely responsible to understand the purpose of God for their life that the global peace being yearned for will emerge because men and women that understand what is needed for the purpose of God to reflects and radiates in the life of people in the world would have taken over the mantle of leadership that will channelled every approach needed to birth a society whereby equality of all men and women will be entrenched in the fabrics of the society with various opportunities that will trigger the emergence of a class-less society.
In conclusion, the quality of your life depends on the quality of your time with God.
Stop wasting your time, spend more time with God.
