Covenant defence!

 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Psalms 91:5-7.

Terror is real, arrows that fly by day is also real. While some celebrate terror, they object to arrows of wickedness. Terror usually co-exist with arrows of the wicked. The level of wickedness experienced in the world today has taken unusual dimensions. The cable network news channels are unable to keep pace with them. A mass shooting incident in Orlando, had a half-life of one day before the murder of the British Congresswoman in cold blood. Mimics and copycats abound that relish such occurrence. Wickedness is perpetrated using terror and arrows. While terror maybe a hate belief that manifests in suïcidal ideation and killing spree of innocent people, arrows are sent to other locations as lone wolf attacks. Your location when the arrows fly or when terror strikes matter. The covenant instructs, directs and commands to miss wickedness. Where hate abounds, a hedge is raised up by the covenant. This is covenant exemption at work; you shall not be à victim. The covenant conquers terror everytime and everywhere.

“Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty. O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise thy name.” Psalms 74:20-21.

We may not be able to stop the arrows that fly by day and terror by night but we are not permitted to be victims. The covenant is the hedge from hate that has gone viral in the world. Arrows of the covenant are stronger than arrows of wickedness. One has to plummet to the ground when the other is on course. Arrows in the hands of a mighty God is every covenant child. You are not permitted to be à victim of terror nor overstaken by the arrows of the wicked. Covenant arrows break every arrow of the wicked. You are that covenant arrow that destroys wickedness in your covenant land. Wickedness is not permitted here, the covenant overtakes the stronghold of the enemy. That is the covenant defence!

“That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;”Genesis 22:17.

Covenant exemption.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Psalms 91:5-7.
Living is not for fanfare but for warfare ;challenging situations abound.
Terror is for the nighttime and arrows fly by day.
Whether by day or by night the forces of wickedness are at work.
It does not depend on location as some erroneously think.
Just like the jews, some persons have prospered more in these challenging times.
Terror can aid your prosperity when the covenant is at work.
Terror is not your limitation neither are arrows stopping your success.
The covenant shields and protects from these days and nights.
The fear of terror does not limit its influence either, the covenant is a shield.
“After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram:I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.” Genesis 15:1
Fear not he says, it’s a commandment to every covenant keeper.
The covenant prospers and protects from terror and arrows of the wicked.
You could live as if the devil does not exist.
The terror may not stop, the arrows will keep flying but not for you.
There is no bullet produced that can meet you as a target.
There is no economic breakdown that could terrorise your business or enterprise.
There is no incantation that is permitted to reach you and yours
Bulletproof, terror-proof,and arrows that fall and fail by the covenant shield.
This shall be your covenant testimony. The covenant is the sure defence.
The covenant shield is the surety and exemption from wickedness.
This is what the lord has wrought by the covenant.
“Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel,
What hath God wrought!” Numbers 23:23.

Squatters to blessing.

Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord:and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. Psalms 127:3-5.

Fruitfulness is the principal product of the covenant. Increase, multiplication, spreading abroad are its manifestation. The covenant is against barrenness, childlessness is not permitted. Everyone that walked with God becomes fruitful, none is barren. Children are God’s heritage, not one connected to the covenant lacks it. Check through the book, the covenant terminates barrenness & childlessness. Surprised that am separating barrenness from childlessness? Childlessness is barrenness of the body in having your own children. Barrenness, however is more encompassing; business, profession, career, Ideas, enterprise etc. You are blessed to be a blessing, children are agents of blessing. Abraham is a classic example of both; at 75years, he was still living in his parent’s house, unproductive, unsuccessful, without a child from his loins. Encounter with the covenant changed everything; from squatting to a blessing.

“Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:”Genesis 12:1-2. Covenant with God changes barrenness to

Covenant with God changes barrenness to fruitfulness in all facets. The barren are turned into a great nation, a blessing and a great name. The covenant is against childlessness also carreer, business and professional and national barrenness. The covenant is the key to supernatural change of status. The end of Abraham gives insight to how far the covenant works. Your current status is a good place to walk with God for a guaranteed end. Anything less than fruitfulness is not of the covenant. From squatters to a great nation, that is the force of the covenant at work. You shall not lack natural and covenant children neither greatness nor blessing. Arrows in the hand of a mighty God.

“And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age:and the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things.Genesis 24:1.

“And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great: For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants:and the Philistines envied him.”Genesis 26:13-14.

Seed as stars

 Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. Psalms 127:3-5.

The stars are a wonder to behold, so also the birth of a child. Imagine the birth of a star,so shall your children be: signs and wonders. The birth of a child is always à happy season, songs and gifts abound. New life, a blessing, a gift from God through you to the world. The birth of a child does not coincide with the birth of a covenant child. The natural birth precedes covenant birth. Encounter with the covenant keeping God is the covenant birth or new birth. Natural children have natural inheritance, covenant seeds have supernatural heritage.; The choice is yours. Unhappy is a father who has children of shame but the covenant turns your seeds to stars. God is a rewarder, the covenant is the platform for rewards and return.

“After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram:I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward. And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them:and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.”Genesis 15:1, 5.

Turn your seeds to stars by the covenant; there is no better package. This is God’s reward to his covenant partners or friends. The reward of the covenant is sure, Arrows in the hand of a mighty God. Lease your children to God, natural children for covenant children. Instead of shame, they become stars on the earth. You will no longer weep over your children, they are Blessed to be a blessing. The force if blessing turns shame around. Children are God’s heritage, by the gift of God they take their place in life. Education is good, but the covenant is sure platform for unusual greatness. Be great, be blessed, your seed greater as stars; signs and wonders to all. After the order of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. “That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the

“That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.”Genesis 22:17-18.

A Quiver Full Of Them!

 Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord:and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. Psalms 127:3-5

Opportunity to travel to places I grew up is usually exciting. From the four storey buildings with penthouse filled city by the river bustling with activity to the hinterlands with palatial mansions hidden by the trees and sparse population, One thing is obvious, housing is a great investment and a source of pride; from the old to the new. Palatial mansions over-grown by shrubs reminiscent of former affluence. One question comes to mind, does anyone live there? What a waste? Even if the owners have passed on, where are his children? The cost of maintaining the houses are enormous, or better still unbearable. Arrows shot into the past, an inheritance but not à blessing. This shall not be the portion of your children. A covenant child is programmed to be greater than his forbears not less.

“Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.”Isaiah 8:18.

Covenant children are given, natural children are Born. The covenant gives rise to children that are signs and wonders. Arrows in the hand of a mighty God, shot into the future. You will never be ashamed of your children! The covenant does not only make great, it makes your children greater. Every greatness that swallows up the portion of the future is not of God. The God of Abraham gave Isaac & Jacob was also given; covenant seeds The covenant is the short cut from generational shame and reproach to greatness. Houses, riches are not gifts for the next generation but a covenant with God. You shall indeed rest in peace happy and fulfilled, your seed is greater. My quiver shall overflow with covenant children; Blessed & multiplied.

“That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.”Genesis 22:17-18.

Share the blessing.

 Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. Psalms 127:3-5.
The covenant ensures that you have children; covenant children or seeds. Children are God’s heritage, he has prepared for them a blessing. One of the heritage of sons is to be greater than their father. Arrows shot into the future, not into the past; gifts from God. The converse is a curse but that is the norm in some society. That is why many bear their father’s name with Junior or II added for distinction. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is one and the same;the next is always greater than the former generation. That is the covenant norm. Isaac is not Abraham Jnr; his covenant path is well defined. This is the difference between natural and covenant children Every covenant child is programmed to be greater than his progenitors. This is the heritage of the covenant & the God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob.
“The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.”Genesis 49:26.
Many have laid down wealth and riches for the next generation not blessing. Very few have blessed the next generation; blessing is not assumed it is covenanted. It is not passive, it is active. Whatever houses, landed properties & bank accounts transfered from Abraham to Isaac was a nothing compared to the blessing. Apart from possesions, they obtained the blessing; go for the blessing. The blessing was successtuly transfered throughout their generation. The former always blessing the latter; children released into the future. Those that reserves wealth and riches only as gifts to the next generation lay up curses instead of blessing. Those that bless the latter always shoot them forward as covenant children; arrows in the hands of a mighty man, wealth and riches remain in their house. Bless your children; the covenant is the surety for generational Blessing. American citizenship is not the guarantee for generational impact. Share the blessing, it is a commandement; terminate the flow of curses.
” Praise ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. Wealth and riches shall be in his house:and his righteousness endureth for ever.”Psalms 112:1-3.

 

Spread abroad.

And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac:the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. Genesis 28:13-14.

Blessing is the signature of God and the covenant, wealth and riches are byproducts. You are Blessed everywhere & in everything by the covenant. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob obtained generational blessing by the covenant. Every one of them walked with God and lived in their covenant city. The covenant leads you to the right place for increase, multiplication and abundance and your children also. Everyone of our covenant fathers have a record of migration. They moved by divine instructions and according to God’s direction. They moved with the covenant blessing, not to convenient places. The covenant makes international & generational personalities. The blessing is not from abroad, the covenant is the key to God’s blessing. Those that go abroad to be blessed end up dissappointed; the Blessed spread abroad without stress. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”James 1:17 The blessing of the covenant is from above, unaffected by national economies.

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”James 1:17 The blessing of the covenant is from above, unaffected by national economies.

The blessing of the covenant is from above, unaffected by national economies. It’s from above,not from abroad! Stop chasing shadows. The covenant is the right place for your generational Blessings. There is guaranteed transfer of blessing from one generation to another. This is God’s plan for your life; the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. There is no nation under heaven that can guarantee wealth, how much more blessing. The blessing therefore,  is generational security and assurance. Going abroad is not the key to blessing, the word of the covenant is it. The blessing spreads abroad, it is not abroad. The blessing of God makes you a nation to be envied. Spread abroad, don’t just go abroad; become the envy of nations. Covenant blessing is at work.

“And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great: For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants:and the Philistines envied him.”Genesis 26:13-14.

Generational blessing.

 And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac:the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. Genesis 28:13-14.

God introduces himself as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. It’s bothersome & repetitive but conveys his most favourite partners. God is proud of these three as an example of the covenant at work. Many of us have become used to that expression, not many understand the implication; the difference between blessing and riches or wealth. For three generations God was working through the covenant. These men walked with God and had so much to show & for our learning. Wealth and riches are not transferable, blessings are generational. The wealthy are not always blessed but the blessed are always wealthy. Blessing is the emblem of the covenant, wealth and riches are the byproducts. They are not blessed alone, their children and Family with them. Watch out for generational, family and lineage blessing; it’s the covenant at work.

“His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.” Psalms 112:2-3.

The covenant is not key to national wealth but to generational blessing after the order of Abraham Isaac and Jacob. There is à covenant location for your green pastures and it is not synonymous with nationality. Blessing abounds irrespective of national prosperity or austerity. Your covenant land is always green notwithstanding the season of the year. What God did in Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, hè is reenacting today. The covenant is not obsolete, it is the same today; same God, same covenant & same effect. The covenant grants generational blessing irrespective of nationality.

“But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God:for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.”Deuteronomy 8:18.

God’s signature.

Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it. Isaiah 58:14.

Abundance is God’s signature and of the covenant. Lack is the emblem of disconnect from the covenant. Whenever the green pastures are not accessible, lack becomes inevitable. The economy is not responsible for lack neither location nor profession. In the same location where you dwell, green pastures abound. Proximity does not guarantee possession of green pastures. Direction and instruction from the good shepherd is key to a green lifestyle. Dryness is terminated by the force of the covenant. The heritage of Jacob is abundance, that is your portion in Christ. When the shepherd speaks, lack is terminated.

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.”Psalms 23:1-3.

You won’t need a change location, just hear the shepherd voice. One word from God is enough for a lifetime of abundance. God is the greatest, he makes men great even in austerity. Lack is not your portion, neither want your possession nor scarcity your heritage. You have a heritage of abundance, accept nothing less Having a good shepherd gives guaranteed access. Those that are connected to the source of abundance never beg for the sauce. Let the covenant take over, invite the good shepherd. When he shows up, lack checks out; that is his signature deeds. The greatest is too loaded, lack cannot survive his presence. Welcome to your season of unending abundance. The lord is My shepherd!

“I am the door:by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”John 10:9-10.
