Covenant walk

Guaranteed fruitfulness.

 O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the Lord. Thus saith the Lord, Write ye this man childless, a man that shall not prosper in his days:for no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting upon the throne of David, and ruling any more in Judah. Jeremiah 22:29-30.

Curses are real, so also are blessings. They are neither assumed nor imagined; they are present or absent. Curses kill, blessings make alive. Curses have a pattern, blessing also has its own pattern. When death, decay, delay and denial are at work; a curse is present. Increase, multiplication, advancement, prosperity are signs of blessing. Blessing is a covenant, an eternal commitment by God to man. Blessing make life worth living; without them, the earth becomes uninhabitable. The earth harkens to the word of God, the womb was created from the earth to be fruitful. The word of God is familiar, it was the first thing it ever heard It is the best thing it ever knows. Curses came late, long after the blessing was pronounced.

“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it:and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” Genesis 1:28.

The word of God is the packet of blessing on the earth. The earth is quick to respond to every word of God. Blessing is her delight,life is her desire, increase & multiplication the design. Every word of God has the wherewithal to bring about the blessing. The word of God is the title deed of the covenant of blessing. Speak it, let the earth soak up the familiar word of God. Every unfamiliar curse is terminated for your seed to germinate. The word is the master key to a world of blessing. Purge your earth of every activity that hinders productivity. Replenish the blessing stores of the earth. Your fruitfulness is guaranteed.

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.”Psalms 23:6.

The law of life.

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it:and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Genesis 1:28.

From Creation, fruitfulness is commanded as the law of life. God cannot ask man to be what he has not prepared him for. Fruitfulness is God’s will, not the product of chance but by choice. None was created barren, fruitfulness is a must, not by chance. Fruitfulness is of the blessing, barrenness is a curse. With the fall of man, many virtues of the kingdom were corrupted. Some have been born barren due to the works of the Devil. Others became barren by lifestyle choices and decisions. This is where Redemption intervenes for their restoration. There is therefore now no condemnation; the curse is broker in Christ.

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”Romans 8:1-2.

Redemption is not the upgrade of humanity but a new creation in reality. The reasons for barrenness are valid but the condemnation is terminated. The law of death provoked by sin is terminated by the law of life. The condemnation which is lawful is replaced by the conversion to life. Medical science cannot delete sin neither can advances cure death. The spirit takes residence to vitalize or quicken the new creature. There is a way out of barrenness or fruitfulness, the gift of life. Life is not by chance, it is a right; have life. Those that have the new life give life; it’s free, it makes free. What was terminated in Adam is resurrected in Christ. Redemption is the master key to new creation. Redemption is free, it makes free, without a fee; the law of life.

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;” 2 Corinthians 5:17-18.

The spirit of Daniel.

He delighteth not in the strength of the horse:he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man. The Lord taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy. Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion. Psalms 147:10-12.

Have you heard this saying before? “Heaven help those that help themselves” sounds familiar? This statement or cliché at least acknowledges that there is help from heaven. I seem to like that just like many others; But the statement is not scriptural, it’s not from the good book. It’s from the play book of advocates of self help first before the help of God. What God does not conceived, he neither helps or supports. He does not support your agenda, he has hie own will to support. This is why many projects & programmes are unsupported or unfit for support. He does not delight in self help, but in the help of the Holy spirit. The holy sprit is the helper. Help has emigrated from a desire to a person.

“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him:but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”John 14:16-17.

The helper is within, help is not without. Quit seeking for the legs of man popularly called long leg syndrome or the strength of the horse- mercenaries. The Holy spirit is all the help needed for life. Long leg is now the restriction, mercenary becomes the humiliation. The holy spirit supports, helps and beautifies destiny. That is help personified and divine support completed. First is not reserved for those with long legs, mercenaries are their undoing. Welcome to life of unlimited opportunities with the anointing to be first. Flesh versus spirit, you don’t stand a chance. Be first among the best with the help of the holy spirit. That is the spirit of Daniel; your personal helper.

The holy spirit is Heaven’s gift, his gifts are all the help needed.

“As for these four children, God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom:and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams. And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm.”Daniel 1:17,20.

Help comes!

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. Psalms 121:1-2.

I have an elder sibling whose name is “I go manage” That obviously was not the name given by my parents. He is an Auto Engineer and driver in a multinational company. When the access road to their facility was bad due to rains, many of their trucks get stuck. Workers in the field will be stranded on their way back to base. Apart from towing trucks that are stuck in the mud, he always got back to base without needing any assistance.

When his superiors complain that the terrain was treacherous, he has this kind words “i go mange” hence the name.  Driving is his gift, trucking is his blessing; never stranded, always on time.

Helpers are men and angels but the source of the gift is God. Grace empowers to do the extraordinary, mercy strengthens for the impossible. Greatnes is the byproduct of these integrated helps from God. The help of God transforms humans to heroes, the weak to gods among men. The size of your helper determines the type of help obtained.

“Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”Hebrews 4:14,16.

Your helpers must have been helped to become a helper; help comes! Help is from those that have been helped by God; help becomes a lifestyle. Blessing is from them that are blessed of God; the seed of Abraham. The giver of both is not the hand outstretched but God who is the source of all. Those that look up never lack help; you will never lack helpers. Stop looking around, none can help you without God’s help. God has sworn to help you; everyone,everything helps when God is at work. Never hopeless nor helpless, helpers along the way and everywhere. Every look up invites strange helps from above; it’s key to be above only.

Blessing is God’s package for man’s help always. From heaven to the earth & the deep; increase, multiply without restrictions. Covenant help on every side; help comes!

“Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:”Genesis 49:25.

Not without blood.

 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. Hebrews 12:22-24.

Blood is thicker than water is a cliche: so what is thicker than blood? The best is only good enough for Zion. Even though the blood was mentioned last, it is the ticket to Zion. It is the seal to come unto Zion; no blood, no entry. The blood of Jesus is the purest, it purges all from sin and death. The purest is not isolated from the villest but translates & justifies them. Everyone in Zion arrives with the help of the blood of the new covenant. No one enters Zion without the purging effect of the blood of Jesus. The spirit of just men perfected; that’s what the blood achieves. Perfection is a direction but a destination gift in Zion by his blood That’s how thick and generous the blood of the Jesus is. Only those that cross the blood line can be rescued and exempted from all evil.

“As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee;” Zechariah 9:11-12.

Without the blood of Jesus the covenant cannot be activated. The covenant delivers and sets all free from every captivity. No one is bound in Zion, everyone is free; liberty from captivity is guaranteed. That is the stronghold, where your inheritance is restored & destiny affirmed. The covenant rescues, delivers and exempts all and from all. Those that have a covenant with God run to Zion, they do not just come. That is the covenant place for safety, security & restoration. The blood of the covenant is ever present to speak and be sprinkled. In Zion God is always present, his acts manifest by the sprinkling of blood. Nothing & no one passes through the blood in Zion and remains the same. The blood, the lord and our God awaits you in Zion today.

“His foundation is in the holy mountains. The Lord loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.” Psalms 87:1-3.

This is Zion.

  •  Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord. The Lord shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life. Yea, thou shalt see thy children’s children, and peace upon Israel. Psalms 128:4-6.

    The blessing is upon people not upon nations. Every covenant blessing runs in families. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is our example. The same generational blessing is still being contacted today and transferred. The next generational have something to show of their progenitors. Not only a surname but a great name and a blessing. This is the portion of everyone that is blessed of the lord. Zion is where the God of Jacob dwells, every good thing is available. Zion is the connection to generational blessing. Everyone in Zion has it. As long as Zion is not removed, their generational blessing is sure. The blessing upon them transforms these individuals to nations. Every one connected to the God that dwells in Zion experiences Abrahamic order of blessing.

    “They go from strength to strength,every one of them in Zion appeareth before God. O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.

    The covenant is magnetic, blessings are attracted. Everyone that appears before God in Zion in spirit and truth obtains his portion. Zion is the place of covenant encounters; the making & renewal of covenants. Everyone that appears before God in Zion is Connected. Those that obtain covenant attaction magnets blessing and repels curses. Abraham cannot be forgotten even today, The blessing still speaks. Zion, city of the living God, the covenant continues. More blessing, no Curses; no more loss, dryness or scarceness. You are Blessed, your children and your children’s children.

    “The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee; Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion; Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.” Psalms 20:1-3

Sprinkle and speak.

 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. Hebrews 12:22-24.

Blood is essential in the covenant, its one of the forces at work in Zion. It is a blood covenant! A sacrifice that is ever present before God. His blood gives life, health, vitality, newness.goodness & Greatnes. The blood of Jesus is the purest, hence the standard in heaven. He is the first and last, alpha & omega, beginning & end of sacrifices. The blood of Jesus gives entrance to Zion, purges & purifies all. Jesus is the mediator or go-between God and man, heaven and earth. The blood is the living witness of the covenant sacrifice; alive & active. The blood speaks as it is sprinkled or invoked. Whenever the blood is sprinkled, it’s effect is seen in all the earth. The blood of Jesus translates ordinary people to heavenly citizens. Everyone born in Zion is a partaker of the blood covenant in Christ. The process of translation begins at redemption and renewed in Zion.

“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us:for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” Galatians 3:13-14.

The blood covenant is the basis of redemption; the blood is domiciled in Zion. Redemption is our ticket to the blessing of Abraham through Christ. This is very important to many of us gentiles, with no natural ties to Abraham. The blood of Jesus rescues from the curse of sin & death to the blessing. The blood is now a weapon in our hand to sprinkle and speak. Everything procured by the blood of Jesus is ours to enjoy. Redemption is our elevation from terrestrial to celestial living. We are now citizens and partakers in Zion city of our God. The blood is sprinkled and speaks for us too; I am born there. The earth responds, the devil is overcome by the word and the blood.

No longer a victim, now a victor in Christ Jesus. Sprinkle and speak!

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelation 12:11.

Living witnesses.

 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. Hebrews 12:22-24.
Zion is a place of encounter with the ancient of days for living witnesses. The former meets with the latter for a current living-proof. One church, between the saints departed and the saints on the earth. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob &David meet with Enoch Adeboye’s & David Oyedepo’s; the same God! Whatever the covenant has done in the past is repeated in the present. The covenant ensures that living witnesses arise in every generation. The former acts of God by his covenant is not the end, but the beginning. The same God, the same word, the same covenant, the same effect & result. Zion is the place for overnight turnarounds. Where heaven meets with the earth, every good thing happen with speed. In Zion a dual nationality is granted, the past and the present meet to create the future. Greatness explodes when heaven meets with the earth in Zion. Zion is the covenant place for a forceful change of levels in life. Every encounter with the living God by his word turn men to living witnesses. Get set for the unusual, leave the usual behind.
Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.”Acts 14:17.
Everyone born in Zion has this testimony of overnight turnaround. The roll call will not be complete without your name added. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob was born there, David, Solomon, was born there. They all have the testimony of greatness rooted in covenant encounters in Zion. The same platform is presented today to thee that call on his name. As long as the work of the covenant is on, Zion is still available to you. Living witnesses are still being born today in Zion. Your are next in line to be a living witness to this generation. It’s the exclusive preserve of everyone that meet with God in Zion.
“The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble;the name of the God of Jacob defend thee; Send thee help from the sanctuary,and strengthen thee out of Zion; Remember all thy offerings, and accept thy burnt sacrifice; Selah.”Psalms 20:1-3.

Covenant word encounter.

But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. Hebrews 12:22-24.

Zion is the birthplace of nations and generations of greatness. These are persons that never die,their foot prints endure for many generations. They are born in Zion. Zion is the place of encounter with God; it’s the covenant launch pad. It’s not encountered by chance but by choice. It is a mountain of voices, a city of personal encounters. You are not part of the crowd, you have a special connection with the lord. Every covenant father has a dramatic documented encounter with God. That is why they are sure of their covenant relationship with God. Living-proofs are byproduct of definite encounters not guesswork. There is no silence in Zion, everything speaks; hear what the lord says. From the innumerable company of angels that have personalized messages to the God of all the earth and the Spirits of just men made perfect; everything speaks and the words are without confusion. The blood of sprinkling also speaks; never leave Zion without a word from God. Covenant word encounter.

“And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not. And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.” Genesis 28:16-17.

Every encounter with God is known, it is not assumed. One encounter is all it takes to be on top of your world. His word is his bond, he says it as it is; the word of God in Zion comes to pass. His word is backed by heaven for performance, its the carrier of heaven’s virtue to the earth. Word encounter guarantees the continuous flow of blessing. Welcome to a world of better things and blessing by the covenant word.

One word from God is all it takes to bless and to be a blessing. Made in heaven, but enjoyed on the earth; the covenant word encounter.

“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 28:14.
