It was late 2005 and I just gave my life to Christ. I was a few weeks in Christ but still had the challenge of trying to stop smoking. I knew I had a new life and was all glad, saved and redeemed; but I was still surrounded by my gang and had everything the old life presented, still glaring at me. So, for me, smoking was a temptation I was battling with.
The day I accepted Christ, I joined a Service Unit in Church. Serving God is very important if you must grow in your walk with God. Those who just want to accept Christ and go to Church only on Sundays, without accepting His call to serve, will never go far to enjoy the benefits of the Kingdom of God.
If you do not serve, you will not grow. In God’s Kingdom, Sonship without Service is irresponsibility. Christ came to serve and not to be served; what other model do you think we can adopt? If you do not serve God actively, many Covenant blessings will be inaccessible to you, even if your Salvation is genuine.
I joined the Sanctuary Keepers and joined the group to clean the Church weekly. But I did this in faith. I did not just clean the Church; I was serving God specifically with faith in my heart. I knew the Bible said, that my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit; 1Cor. 6:19. So, as I was sweeping and cleaning the Church, I kept telling God; “As I am cleaning your House, clean my life (your temple) of every dirty attitude and negative addiction.” And it worked!
After a few weeks, I was on my way back home from one of our cleaning sessions. As I passed by the spot I used to buy cigarette, the smoke of cigarette passed by my nose and the smell irritated me, I nearly had a running stomach. I immediately knew that I was delivered from the addiction of smoking and drinking.
Before then, I could smoke all kinds of things. But no more! I received deliverance by the mystery of Kingdom Service, and by doing it in faith. Ex 23:25 says, “And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.”
When you serve God, He takes away sickness from your life; and this includes negative addictions such as lesbianism, homosexuality, masturbation, smoking and drinking, stealing, anything that is a stranger to the life that Christ wants you to lead. Serving God in Faith breaks the yoke of addictions.
Since that moment till forever, I am free from smoking, drinking and other negative addictions.
For Kingdom Service to work for you, you must first be a child of the King; you must be born again. So if you have not accepted Jesus into your heart or you are still willfully living in sin, you need to repent now. Say this Prayer from your heart; “Lord, I am a sinner; have mercy on me. I accept Jesus into my heart, as my Lord and Saviour. From now, I am born again and recieve Championship over satan, over win and over the world. Amen!”
Are you struggling with any addiction as a child of God? Is the devil trying to tempt you with the battles of the former life? Go and Serve GOD in Faith. Even if you have sinned, ask God for mercy, then plant yourself in the redeeming Power of Kingdom Service. Those that are planted in Zion, will not lack nourishment. Today, I see God break off every chain of addiction on your life in Jesus name. Amen.

For weeks, I have resisted the urge to write you on this. But it has come as a strong burden, I no longer have a choice! Yes! Every Missionary is burdened. I am not talking about Christian and Non-governmental organizations posing as humanitarian agencies but servicing the stomach of a few. I am talking about Individuals, Churches, Agencies, Ministries, Groups and Non-governmental organizations that have left familiar grounds to answer the call of God. Those who have planted themselves in regions that others are fleeing, and are committed to the One who has sent them. I am talking about genuine servants of God; many of whom are hardly known or recognized.
Every Missionary is burdened! You cannot be a missionary and lead a normal life, little wonder, many do not dare venture into this choice-Call. The demands are high, the sacrifices are grievous, the perils are heavy, the scars are painful, but the glory ahead far outweighs the sufferings therein.
As a Missionary, you cannot think about an accommodation for yourself and family alone; you must think of a facility large enough to house others who will need a place to stay after they have accepted your Jesus on the field. A three bedroom flat can only be a starting point.
A Missionary cannot cater for only his children’s schooling; he better prepares to school the whole community or send many to schools in neighbouring communities where the facility is available. You must cater for those you have been sent to.
A Missionary cannot only pray for the sick. Even when they are healed, there will be need to engage Medical Practitioners – some of whom he will pay – for certain cases that need this attention. This is part of the love that Jesus approves of in Matt 25:44-45; “Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me”
Every genuine Missionary is playing down on his needs, while rejoicing at every little achievement he or she gets in the work committed in their care. For instance, after a series of open-air crusades, there is news of massive harvest of souls and miracles; it may shock you that the person mightily used of God, does not have basic necessities back at home. Some Missionary families are baring burdens that have made their children abhor the word “Missions.” Stop equating the massive displays to personal wealth of a Missionary. Personal Finances and Ministry Funds are two different extremes to a Missionary who has learnt to be faithful to God.
If God has really called you into Missions, you will see money, it is only a matter of time. Some of it will come as test, others as proof that God supplies the needs of His people. Genuine Missionaries handle more money than the way they appear. This is not due to greed, it is a lifestyle they must lead. You cannot be busy on the field and live large. Missionaries prioritize the work and the needs of the flock above their personal needs.
Missionaries are one of the most Financially Intelligent people. From knowing how to make friends in foreign fields, then converting friends to supporters, raising and keeping partners without appearing beggarly; then being entrepreneurial and investment savvy; Missionaries undergo all kinds of training in order to stay ahead of the enemy – spiritually, physically and otherwise.
With these and much more saddled on Missionaries, you are not assured that the people you are sent to, will not try to mock you, or conspire against you or even attack you. The devil is always out, looking for room to attack, but we always have the victory in Christ Jesus. Missions exposes you to the terrors on the field. However, Missions also brings you into the realities of God’s protection as seen in Isa 54:17, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.”
Some years back, one of my daughters called me up requesting for my account details, and that of other Missionaries. Someone she knew needed to send support. It was a huge relief for us because for months, this angel in human skin kept encouraging some of us. God bless them forever.
Is there a Missionary you know? Encourage them! Show up in person or send your support as a surprise. Their burden is not your business, but they are carrying burdens that are not theirs too. We are all here to carry one another’s; so, show up.
Pray for Missionaries. Show up on the field and give a helping hand. Send them resources and useful materials. You can even help to support their children’s school fees. Or, you can send financial support, one-time or monthly.
As I said earlier, I tried to restrain myself from sending you this note. It has come, work with it. I believe God is speaking to someone. God bless you!
Hallelujah! The battles of the devil are believers’ tools for producing and replicating victories we have read about and seen happen in the lives of other people. The Bible says, “…count it all joy when you fall into diverse temptations” James 1:2. This means, battles are meant to bring joy, because they are the stepping stones to victory and serve as raw material for strengthening of our faith in Christ Jesus.
Below are 5 types of battles the devil specializes in using;
These are battles that face a believer because of the choices and decisions he or she has made.
Personal battles are not always the handwork of the devil, but they give the enemy access and foothold to manipulate, punish and sometimes prolong the effects of the battles in the life of the individual concerned.
An example of a Personal Battle is the consequence of sin. Rom 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death…” When a man goes into sin, he has chosen to be enslaved by the devil. He is drawn by his desires and gives himself in. This is a decision, and the devil who specializes in taking advantage of those who fall, will mount other issues into the concerned individual, if confession unto salvation is not done on time.
Every believer must be careful about the choices he or she makes. Because even as children of God, if we make wrong decisions, even in our normal work lives, we will face consequences. Then sometimes, depending on the nature of decisions, these consequences can be grievous.
These are battles raging against individuals but in deception. The devil is a master in deception, he does not like Light, he hates the Truth. Actually, the devil will have loved to do all things hidden.
Unknown battles are wars that rage in such a way that the victims know that something is wrong, but they cannot figure out where it is coming from. These are battles that disguise and manipulate the victims.
There was this brother while we were on campus. When eating, he will just discover that his food was reducing faster than how he was eating it. Someone was eating with him but he couldn’t see the person. This is battle in deception. He could see the impact but could not trace the source.
Unknown battles can only be destroyed by Light. This means, until the power or personality behind the battle is unveiled, the battle continues. You must pray for God to expose every power and force fighting you, then the enemy can be defeated.
Pray like this, “Father, open my eyes to see what is affecting my life in secret in Jesus name”
These are wars passed from generation to generation. You know, the devil is a bastard; he loves to counterfeit the things of God. The devil knows that the blessings of God are generational, so he decided to create household wickedness and inherited curses.
Sometimes, inherited battles flow in the bloodline. Sometimes, they are afflictions and sicknesses that the enemy passes from parents to children using monitoring spirits and strongmen attached to families that have not received deliverance.
Listen to me! If you find yourself going through the battles that your parents went through, you have Spiritual work to do. And if you notice a repetition of certain evil traits flowing in your family, you need to Wake Up and Stop the devil before it stops you.
Inherited battles are overcome by good understanding of your Redemptive Rights in Christ Jesus, and your ability to enforce them through prayers. See, the devil gives way for the man that knows his Rights in Christ Jesus!
These are battles born out of association with the wrong person or people. For instance, if you marry a man or woman with battles, you will share from it. If you enter into a relationship with a man or woman with battles, you will carry part of it. If you enter into Business Partnership with an embattled associate, you will share in the consequences. This is why you must be careful about associations you enter into, including casual friendships.
I remember some years back, I boarded a bus from Makurdi, headed for Lagos. We were still in Benue when the bus had an accident. The bus somersaulted and landed in the bush. But thank God, we all made it alive. One man had major injury, and the Lord told me that, the devil was out to kill that man. We were in the bus he entered, so we had to be in the accident.
Pray for yourself: Father, deliver me from every association sponsoring battles in my life. I will not enter the wrong association anymore in Jesus name. Amen!
These are battles that are enforced on individuals by the devil himself or by his agents. I have seen where people are instruments in the hands of the devil without even knowing.
As undergraduates on campus, I knew a lady who had a sexual-magnet in her life. Whenever she was around a man, the man will be feeling a strong urge to have sexual intercourse with her. The enemy planted this battle in her life and she did not even know. All she observed was that, many guys were interested in having sex with her at any given opportunity.
Enforced and Inflicted battles thrive in the lives of powerless people. When a person lacks the power of the Holy Spirit, the devil can enforce trash on him or her. Be filled with the Holy Ghost for “…..the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” 1Peter 5:8.
Pray for yourself: Father, uproot everything the enemy has planted and enforced on my life, in Jesus name.
How Do You Gain Victory Over These Battles?
Be Born Again
Salvation through Christ Jesus is the only escape route out of the entrapment and battles of the enemy. If you are not yet born again, or if you are just living without total submission to Jesus, pray like this:
“Lord Jesus, I am a sinner; have mercy on me. I believe you died for me to be free. Wash me clean with your Blood. I receive you into my heart as my Lord and Saviour. From now, I am born again. I receive Championship over sin, satan and the world. Amen!”
Congratulations! Now, you are born again!
Grow and Understand your Redemptive Rights
As a new believer, you are a baby in faith. You need to grow so that your Spiritual muscles will be strong enough, or else you may face challenges too hard for you to handle.
There are many treasures available for you in Christ, but they are only accessible through growth. Feast daily on the Word of God. Receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Make prayers your daily and constant habit. Get a Church or Fellowship where the Truth of God’s Word is taught. Then, you need someone to disciple and mentor you.
I mentor and disciple Champions through Arise Network Champions Family (ANCF), a Kingdom community of young vibrant believers from all works of life. Send a Whatsapp message to +234 817 040 7813, requesting to be added to ANCF Online Forum.
Pray and Enforce your Victory
The devil only submits in warfare. Many Christians who are loosing to the devil are doing so because of their inability in warfare. You need to learn to pray and pray through. Basically, praying with the right knowledge is a must. Furthermore, praying in alliance with the right people is very key to gaining your victory.
We started 31 Days PRAYER RAIN from 1st – 31st July 2022. Time: 5.00 – 6.00am (WAT). Join us daily on Facebook Live @champdejidavid, so you can pray and breakthrough. It is time for your Championship, and no power will be able to stop you anymore in Jesus name. Amen!

A Missionary is anyone who is serving the Lord in a strange land, amongst a people not previously familiar to him or her. Missions is not limited to Pastoring and running a Church in a foreign field. Missions cut across various career fields. Today, we have Medical Missionaries; these are Doctors, Nurses and other Medical practitioners who are attending to the health needs of selected people groups and using this to draw men into God’s Kingdom. We have Media Missionaries. We also have Education Missionaries, these are Educators, Administrators, Teachers, etc, who are setting up and sponsoring Mission Schools in rural areas, as a means of winning communities to Jesus. The concept of Missions is very vast, we keep seeing the Lord do new things through this Outreach Enterprise for the rescue of the souls of people across the nations. So, the next time you see a Missionary, he could be a Professional who has set his “Isaac” on the Altar of God, to burn as Sacrifice to win the world.
Missions need support in diverse forms. From Prayers, to Personnel, to Funding, to Visitations; many things are needed to keep the man or woman on the field alive and productive. And, this is the collective effort of the Church, the Bride of JESUS on the earth.
Among others, I will list 4 things that can happen when you withdraw support for a Missionary on the field. This is not to bring resentment or guilt to anyone who has withdrawn help from a Missionary or Missions Agency. This note is to encourage you and the entire body of Christ to Rise Up, because men and women or leaving the field in their numbers.
Recently, I watched as a Missionary’s Performance level kept dropping. I spoke to another Minister of the need to help that young Missionary. The personnel in question confided in me, of how difficult it has been for him to raise funds for the work. He was getting weak, and it was obvious, at least to those who had the experience to see from afar.
Money is not the only thing that Ministry and Missions need. But when this is lacking; frustration, low self esteem and depression can set in. Don’t allow the Missionary you are sent to help, run into weakness.
Apart from trusting God for funds for the work, every Missionary needs support for personal and/or family upkeep. Do you know that there are Missionaries who are running projects that you applaud, yet they lack basic necessities for their livelihood? If your Church congregation support Missionaries, take time to visit your missionaries on the field; these people are trained to play down their needs for the sake of pushing the Gospel; you will be shocked what some of them pass through, while giving you positive Missions Reports.
If funding is low and it continues, many Missionaries begin to doubt their calling, or doubt the possibility of success on the field. Many Missionaries are running for luxurious fields, abandoning their place because of the inability to lay hold on necessary funding and support. How can a man who no longer sees success in his work, survive the harshness of the field?
You hear of pastors who cut corners because they are in your cities. Missionaries are in the bush, some of them cut corners too. Missionaries face the same temptations as pastors, when support is scarce. No one has an excuse for unfaithfulness in this Kingdom. But, the pressures are light when the common wealth is available to all through those sent to do the distribution.
Recently, the Lord showed me a revelation of how people in the church of today are digging the graves of Ministers. When the man is starved, it becomes harder to perform.
If you withdraw support for a Missionary, you have left him to the strong whip of the devil. Your support is encouraging, refreshing and cultivates a sense of belonging for the Missionary and his family.
If there is someone you should not abandon, after Jesus and your spouse, it is the Missionary that GOD has sent you to. Release your support for them.
A Missionary must continue in prayers and in practice to win and retain quality relationships that will keep the support he needs flowing. However, some times, the support does not come, so many Missionaries result into other strategies proven in Scripture, to earn their livelihood and the funding they need.
I believe that God is always true, He will be with us unto the end of the age. No one has the permanent title of “helper of destiny.” If God has blessed one financially and he refuses to give the support he has received from Above, God will send another to help and support Missions.
If you withdraw support for a Missionary, God will replace you! Don’t abandon God’s project committed to your care. Arise!

What God Has Revealed to Me Concerning The Second Half of 2022
Happy New Month of July 2022; and welcome to your Season of Encounters with GOD. Dan 11:32b says, “…but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.”
The second half of 2022 is launching humanity into a Season of Encounters with GOD. People will see God more practically and evidently. His dealings will no longer be far; His judgements will not just be read, but seen. His touch will become real like when a man touches you with his hands. There will be series of manifestations of Heaven and the Supernatural like we have never known it before.
I remember as a young believer on campus, I heard series of Encounters with the Holy Spirit, with Angels, with Jesus and the LORD God Himself. Maturity in Faith is what has helped me to recognize and understand the difference. On one occasion, I was awake, sitting on my bed, praying at midnight. Then, I began to doze and I felt the strong hand of God touch me; it was so real. I woke up sharply and continued to pray. On another occasion, I was praying at night too. This time I lay on my bed and it was not long before I slept off. But I remember I had my wrist watch on, my Bible and a lit candle were beside my bed. By morning when I woke up, my Bible was by my side, but the candle was off and my wrist watch was no longer on my hand but on the Bible. I knew immediately that an Angel had visited me and left me with signs. Ohhh, praise God. Encounters with God are real; and you will begin to enjoy them.
For the Believer, Encounters are primarily to help us “know Him;” and when we know Him, we become strong and full of exploits, Dan 11:32b. Encounters come to Strengthen the Believer. The LORD told me that in this season, Believers will enjoy encounters that will bring Strength to overcome the wave of oppression and oppositions we are facing, but collectively and otherwise. Are you a Child of GOD? He will show up for you this time around. In Acts 4, the disciples were threatened and opposed; then in verse 24, they prayed unto God. In verse 31, the Bible says, “And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.” This was an Encounter with the Holy Spirit, and instead of being intimidated, they were strengthened and boldly continued in the LORD’S work. Are you intimidated? Expect an Encounter today!
The Church of GOD in Nigeria should not be intimidated by insurgency, kidnappings, banditry and jihad. The Church should pray and be bold; rise against wicked leaderships and remove them from office. There will be series of practical evidences of GOD’S presence amongst us from now. Be strong!
Christians who have not been walking in sincerity with God will experience these Encounters in a different light. Saw years back, I saw a research about Jonah in the Bible. The research revealed that, after Jonah came out of the whale, his skin was altered, he became a man of deformed skin colours because of the chemicals in the belly of the sea animal. Those who refuse to obey GOD’S Instructions would experience GOD’S dealings. The LORD told me that some churches, ministers and projects will “go down for a while.” Some big names will disappear from the screens for a while. They must Encounter GOD and learn. Hallelujah!
There will be encounters in the world too. Encounters sometimes come as judgements, and as forceful interruptions. Saul experienced a sharp interruption of his trip to Damascus in Acts 9: 1 – 9. Many people of other religions, who GOD has marked for use, will begin to Encounter Jesus in this manner. Like a wrestling slam, the Lord will pull them down and redirect them into His agenda.
Then, there will be judgements, and more deaths and sudden collapse of some who think they are in power. The political leadership in Nigeria has begun to shake. There will be Encounters, some of them will not be able to survive the wrath of His judgement, while some will survive but with irrecoverable bruises. In whatever way GOD’S encounters leave the wicked, they will submit to His Lordship. They wicked must fall!
People of God, I welcome you again to our Season of Encounters with GOD. What does God require of us? The answer is in Phil. 3:10-11: “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.”
God requires that we increase in the knowledge of His personality. Know GOD! Come closer to Him. Attend to Him, don’t just attend Church. The more of God you know, the more of His Strength and Anointing you will carry. Then you can do more exploits for His glory. Throughout the month of July 2022, I will be teaching on HOW TO PROGRESS IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD! Join our Ministry Online Forum to enjoy these teachings; CLICK HERE!
Knowing God begins with surrendering your life to His Son. Jesus Christ is the only way to GOD, He is the only one that can save you from sin, hell and eternal damnation. Give your life to Jesus now, say this Prayer of salvation,
“Lord Jesus, I believe you died for me and rose from the dead, in order to save me. I confess that I am a sinner; and I receive your work of salvation. Have mercy on me. I repent of all my sin. From now, you are my Lord and Saviour. I am Born Again; I am a Child of God; and I receive Championship over sin, satan and the world. Amen!”
Congratulations! Now, you are a Child of GOD! I like to invite you to join our Ministry Forum on Whatsapp, where I mentor Champions to grow in their walk with Christ. CLICK HERE to Join.
We are running Daily Early Morning Prayers throughout July 2022. Join us for PRAYER RAIN 2022. Time: 5.00am – 6.00am. Like my facebook Page here to participate; CLICK HERE.
God bless you. Arise!

All the glory and praise to God for His Mercies and Threshing Testimonies throughout the year 2021. We enjoyed His making and indeed, He has qualified us for High Flight in the year 2022. To Jesus be all the praise!
Every season carries the womb to birth the next. And even when God manifests a complete change, He does this to His strategies and not to His Covenant. So, no matter what you went through in the year 2021, God did not change His Covenant plans concerning your life. The Prophecies ordained for your life and destiny are still valid. In fact, we have only come closer to their fulfilments. You should be excited!
2022 is our Year of HIGH FLIGHT. Our anchor Scripture is Habakkuk 3:19, “The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.” God’s ultimate agenda for His people in 2022, is Great Lifting; and this will manifest in 3 basic ways;
God’s people will prosper so much that there will be no logical reason for you to envy anyone in the world, no matter how rich they are. Those who serve God genuinely will enjoy prosperity in all works of their hands.
* Great Honour
The LORD will greatly exalt His elects. Believers will enjoy Great Lifting, more like Prison to Palace Testimonies. Across all works of life and in Politics and Leadership, God will break the rank and files, there will be overtaking. He will set His elects in highly exalted positions. Hallelujah!
* 3600 Turn Around Testimonies
There will be Complete Change of Stories for God’s people. I believe this is specifically for those who have struggles for long, yet been waiting on the LORD. There will be Amazing Testimonies of Complete Change of Story for God’s People across the nations.
God told me that specifically as a Commission, and as Champions and Partners, in the year 2022, we will enjoy Speed with Accuracy. The yoke of delay will no longer stay with you. You will gain speed, and every step you take from the year 2022, will be accurate. This means no more error and mistakes in your life. Oh, glory to Jesus.
These are basic things that God will be doing in the lives of His people. However, the LORD told me why He is bringing us on this High Flight.
WHY THIS GREAT LIFTING? WHY HIGH FLIGHT IN 2022?
The LORD brought the image of a mountain to me, and I began to see His people high on His mountain. Then the LORD said to me, “I am bringing you on high, so you do not suffer my wrath coming upon the nations.” The Spirit of God began to give me understanding that for the people of the world, the killings, disasters and tragedies will not only continue but will increase.
2022 will be very horrible for sinners. It is too dangerous to be casual with the LORD. This is not about just making new year resolutions or hanging around Church. If you are not planted in the LORD, you cannot ascend His Mountain Top.
HOW TO COME ONBOARD HIGH FLIGHT IN 2022
Be Genuinely Born Again
It may be worse for those who are in church but not in Christ, because you will see great things happening in the lives of those you thought were too spiritual, but things will be opposite for you.
Church does not save, Christ does. It is the soul that is saved in Christ that the Church can help. John 1:12 says, “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.”
Salvation is empowerment for living like God. You cannot afford not to be fully on Christ’ side. No deceiver will be able to escape God’s wrath in this new season.
Give your life to Jesus now, say this prayer from your heart: “Lord, I am a sinner. Have mercy on me. I believe Jesus died for me, and I accept His finished work on the Cross. I accept Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. From now, I am born again. I receive Championship over satan, sin and the world, in Jesus name. Amen”
2. Be a Dedicated Kingdom Servant
The Spirit of God told me that, “In 2022, there will be a great gap between those who serve God and those who do not.” 2022 is a year of the Reward of God’s servant; those who serve Him in Ministry and in the workplace; those who refuse to seek fetish powers and manipulations to do ministry; those who have stayed in their place and not followed the deceiver. God will reward us. Hallelujah!
NLT version of Is. 52:13 says, “See, my servant will prosper, he will be highly exalted” Everyone who is genuinely committed to God’s work at their appointed place, will enjoy Prosperity and Great Honour. God will prove Himself as the Rewarder of those that diligently seek Him.Where have you been sent to go? Go there!
What have you been called to do? Go and do it!
Go and serve God. Stay in God’s purpose, reward is here.
God’s servants will Rejoice. Hallelujah!
3. Stay Joyful
There will be so much trauma in the world. The nations only saw an introduction in 2021. Those who lack the Strength of the Almighty God that comes by the Spirit of Joy, you will live in sorrow.
No matter what happens around you, you must stay joyful, thankful and praiseful, so that you continue to operate by His strength and at His realm. Do not allow anything steal your joy. Do not allow anyone or anything trick you into murmuring or complaining against God. Keep the atmosphere of praise intact, this is the secret to keep God on your side through the year.
It takes the Oil of Gladness to stay joyful. Ask the LORD to release His Spirit of Joy into you afresh.
I see the year 2022 answer to you in Prosperity, Great Lifting and 3600 Testimonies in your life, home, Ministry and works in Jesus name. You will not be left behind on this High Flight move. You will not lack speed nor precision; and the wrath coming on this age will not catch up with you in Jesus name. Amen!
I like you to join me on Facebook Live, by 12.00noon (WAT) for PROPHETIC SIGNALS FOR 2022. I will be releasing God’s Prophetic Blessing upon you, your family, Ministry and all the works of your hands. CLICK HERE to Like my Facebook Page, so you can join the broadcast.
Happy New Year and Welcome you onboard High Flight 2022 in Jesus name. Amen. We are praying for you. God bless you. Arise!
Recently, I was privileged to talk to a Church Congregation in Lagos about Missions and how the Church can help. It is needful to start by letting you know that this Church is not new to Missionary enterprise. From my research, the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria is one of the Churches that is known to send, give and support missions across the world; and this has been on for decades.
So, when Rev. Akingbade Adeyemi, the District Overseer of Foursquare Gospel Church, Ikorodu 4 District Headquarters, told me to tell his people what they can do to further help missions, I was amazed. I commend his commitment to the Master’s heartbeat. I encourage many more Pastors and Church Leaders to follow suit.
There are many things the Church can do to help Missions. However, in about 10 minutes, I shared these 3 points with my host. I believe these are some of the most important right now….
1. Send ‘Made’ Men
I am on the field and travel very often as God leads me. I have observed that many missionaries are leaving the field. The passion can be skyrocketing at the beginning, but along the line, due to many unfavourable forces, man made and spiritual, commitment can slide down the slope. There are very many reasons why missionaries withdraw from the field. In this season of increasing security issues, many missionaries have paid the supreme price, and this can be very discouraging.
I believe the terrain of missions have changed greatly. Our fields have evolved. Apart from the spiritual forces, the enemy has made the battle more relatable; instead of casting out witches, stand the gun and threats to life. Missions is not for the faint hearted.
The Bible calls us to pray that God will send labourers into the field. It takes labourers to survive in the field today. The Church should be more cautious about the caliber of men she sends to the field. God will rather delay a man of vision than send him into a field where he will not last. We should give more attention to building men, instilling capacity into men before sending them.
2. Pray! Pray!! Pray!!!
While in the service on Sunday, the Senior Pastor led us all to pray for over 30mins. I was excited, that was not the normal Sunday Service that many of us know. If people do not come for weekly prayer meetings, get them praying on Sunday when they come for service.
If we do not pray, we will faint. Any missionary that does not pray will collapse on the field. The Church should pray for us. Pray for Missionaries, Agencies and Ministers in rural and foreign fields. Prayers travel to save the faint and lift the weak. Many times, we don’t know how far our prayers go.
Pray for me, my family and Ministry team.
Missionaries need all kinds of support. Personally, I draw encouragement from the knowledge that someone cares for me and thinks about me. It’s very relieving to be far from the cities but know that you are not alone.
Churches should send support to missionaries;
– Send regular financial supports;
– Send Bibles, literature and other welfare materials that can aid the work;
– Send personnel and staff for short-term and long-term missions work;
– Communicate very often with missionaries via calls, emails, etc. This goes a long way in boosting morale;
– Send training support. Help missionaries with training that can facilitate their capacity to win souls, keep souls and increase their ability to be self-reliant. Pick one or more missionaries and/or agencies you will begin to support from now.
Return All Global Ministry (RAGM) has room to accept, train and send those who perceive God is calling them into short-term and long-term missions work. Missions is key; it is our corporate responsibility. Jesus is winning. Our Championship is inevitable. We Arise!
Hallelujah! Welcome to the Month of August 2021, our Month of FRESH FLAMES, Acts 4:31. Yes, you have toiled and exerted so much Spiritual energy thus far this year. God is aware. For many, 2021 was to begin with new hopes and dreams, but the first half of the year was still a fall out of the stiff pressures of last year.
The Spirit of God has a new agenda for August 2021. Let us consider our anchor scripture for the month. Acts 4:31 says, “And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.”
Before this time, in Acts chapter 2, the Disciples of Christ had their first encounter of the infilling of the Holy Spirit. This dramatic experience led to speaking in diverse tongues and an audacity in the Disciples. Peter stood up to the crowd, preached the Gospel of Jesus and 3000 souls were won. This was dramatic.
However, the continuity of the Ministry of Christ did not happen without stiff opposition. So in Acts chapter 4, after some threats and flogging, they needed a RECHARGE. They needed MORE to overcome what was coming. This is exactly what the LORD is doing in August 2021.
I heard the LORD say, “Get ready for a New Anointing”. In August 2021, the LORD will be releasing FRESH FLAMES for His Church upon the earth. This is necessary at this time when across the nations, and especially in Nigeria, the body of Christ is facing persecutions and many untold hardships.
FRESH FLAMES will be released upon us individually too to overcome the phases that have hindered us. Sir and Ma, the Manifold Blessings and Threshing Testimonies designed for 2021 MUST COME TO PASS. So, we MUST press into them by accessing New Levels of FIRE.
I admonish you to corporate with Heaven, especially now. Acts 4:31 says, “And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.” Though flogged and threatened, they receive Fresh Anointing to forge ahead. They became bold instead of going timid. They prayed into New Depths of the Power of the Holy Ghost. Are you set?
Press further in August 2021. You might have been slowed down, but do not pack up. Get up; a New Anointing and a Higher Grace is coming upon you. The Overcomer’s Anointing is coming on us this month. Your Spiritual position matters. Come UP. Press in. FRESH FLAMES are here. Arise!
Welcome to the Month of March 2021. Better Days are here and your stories of obscurity are rolled away. It’s our Month of BETTER THINGS. NLT version of Hebrews 6:9 says, “….We are confident that you are meant for better things, things that come with salvation.” KJV version of Hebrews 12:24 further confirms that, “And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than the blood of Abel.” Hallelujah!
There is a Prophetic agenda of God for this month of March 2021. This month is purposely designed for those who have experienced delay, setbacks and have patiently waited on God for His promise. I have received a word from God that, “March 2021 is a month of fulfilment of God’s promises.” In Heb. 6:15, the Bible says, “Then Abraham waited patiently, and he received what God had promised.” In this month, God will be visiting everyone who has waited patiently for Him. Those who have waited on God for a marital partner shall receive their answers this month. Those who have been waiting solely on God for the fruit of the womb will receive conception this month. In March 2021, waiting on the Lord shall pay off with public proofs in Jesus name. What have you been waiting in the Lord for? This month, your expectation shall be delivered. Hallelujah!
The rewards of salvation will be evident in our lives. Before now, it was easy for people to scorn you and insult you for righteous living. But from now, you will be the admirable one, because there are better things that come with salvation. God will distinguish His people from pretenders in the house. The power, riches, wisdom, strength, glory, honour and blessing that accompany salvation, shall be evident in our lives from now on. I hear the Spirit of God say, “He will beautify us with the riches of salvation.” Everything that the shed Blood of Jesus won for us, will be on full display in our lives and homes. Hallelujah!
Better days are here; and we have a responsibility to step into them. All of God’s promises deliver on the platform of faith. We must apply ourselves to His word to see them manifest. Better days are here, and this means, we must let go of the thoughts, sufferings and addictions of the perceived good-old-days. God has better things in stock for us. Be willing to cast your nets into new waters as God leads you. Get ready to take new risks. Be prepared to dive into new realms of sacrifice. There is always a higher price for the higher calling. Throw in your faith for new and better dimensions of God in this month of March 2021.
However, it all starts with Genuine Salvation. Better Things come only with salvation. You might have been in church for years but if you are not saved, the Better Things that the Blood speaks about cannot reflect on your life. Receive Jesus today, confess the Prayer of Salvation below;
“Father, I am a sinner and I confess all my sin. Have mercy of me, wash me clean with the Blood of Jesus and make me your son. I confess Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. From now, I am born again, I am a new creature in Jesus name. Amen!”
Congratulations! Welcome to your season of Better Things.

Giving God our first and best, and not our leftovers
As the name implies, First Fruit is the initial income you receive; the first salary for the year or the first/best profit from your business transactions and investments in the first month. It is also the increase you receive above your regular income. First Fruit is not a Ministerial strategy for raising funds, it is a Scriptural instruction.
Please understand that every instruction has covenant rewards. And so, every giving strategy in God’s word, come with specific blessings. For instance, giving your tithe to God faithfully assures you of Open Heavens, Divine ideas for prosperity and the rebuke of devourers.
First Fruit is a clear Biblical instruction. Ex 23:19 – “The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring into the house of the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother’s milk.”
If you study through Scripture, you will realize that God does not joke with the first. In Matt. 6:33, the Bible says, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Whenever you put God first, He puts your needs next on His agenda. For many years, little has been taught concerning this Mystery of Giving, but I believe the time has come for you to apply this Kingdom treasure and begin to enjoy the benefits of God therein.
There are covenant blessings for those who bring their First Fruit to God, and you can begin to engage them immediately. Some of them include;
– First Fruit Attracts Generational Blessing
Whenever you give your First Fruit, you are not just blessed, your entire household is blessed. Ezek 44:30 says, “And the first of all the firstfruits of all things, and every oblation of all, of every sort of your oblations, shall be the priest’s: ye shall also give unto the priest the first of your dough, that he may cause the blessing to rest in thine house.” First Fruit makes your entire household to be blessed; your marriage, children and generation comes under the cover of God’s covenant blessing. Because of the generational effect of First Fruit, generational curses give way for Covenant Blessings when you put God first in your financial income. Hallelujah!
– God Preserves your Remaining Income for the Year
When you give God your First Fruit, it means you have considered Him first in your finances, and anyone who puts God first never comes last. When you put God first in your finances, He makes your finances His priority. According to Matt 6:33, all the things that people are hustling for, they come as additions to you, without sweat or struggles. Giving God your First Fruit will provoke preservation for all other income you will earn for the year. Rom 11:16 says, “For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.” When you give God first, you have set it apart as holy unto the Lord; and automatically, all other incomes in the year are made holy. So God preserves them from waste.
First Fruit provokes God to preserve and secure all your other income throughout the year. You will not be able to waste funds or resources. He will ensure that all that you earn is preserved. Glory to God.
– First Fruit Provokes Overflowing Blessing
I believe that First Fruit is the highest form of financial honour to God. That is why Prov 3:9-10 says, “Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase. So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.”
Giving God your First Fruit launches you into the realms of overflowing blessings. Personally, I discovered that since I started giving my First Fruit, no matter the financial budget of Ministry Project we set out to do in the year, we always accomplish the targets with financial resources untouched. In fact, the last National Retreat we had, we received support from a Ministry Partner for a meeting that had ended. It is a mystery.
First Fruit launches you into filled barns and overflowing storehouses. You begin to experience the more-than-enough order of provisions. You stop struggling to get things done, and after achieving your goals ordained by God, you still have finances and resources untouched. Now, that’s a height of blessing!
Are you ready to take your walk with God to the next level? Will you begin to honour God financially with the First and Best part of your income? Our financial seeds are worthless before God if we are not saved. He requires we first come, giving our lives, before giving our seeds. You may be attending church and even be in a service group, but if you are still living in sin, you need to repent. Return now by confessing the Prayer below, genuinely from your heart;
“Lord Jesus, I have sinned but I return to you today. Have mercy on me and wash me clean from all iniquity. I confess you as my Lord and Saviour. From today, I am born again. I receive Championship over sin and satan. Thank you Jesus. Amen!”
