Blessed first

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 first thing bestowed on man soon after creation is the blessing. That gives credence to the import of being blessed in life and having blessing first.
It’s imperative that blessing has only one unique source and that is God.

Man is blessed before receiving his assignment on the earth. Blessing is empowerment to prosper, increase, multiply, grow and dominate. You’re not blessed by what you have or have not but by the word of God. The word of God says “Be fruitful and multiply” that is not a suggestion but a commandment.

Many are not fruitful nor do they multiply being disconnected from the source of blessing.
This commandment does not require a conducive atmosphere nor is limited by political correctness.

“And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar. And the Lord appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:”Genesis 26:1-2.

I think that one of the travesties in this generation is poverty in spite of politically correctness.
Prosperity does not have political affiliation neither poverty. I was gleefully informed by a close friend and relative that he has prospered the most under the most economically naive government in town.

This I have always believed that austerity is opportunity for prosperity by the covenant. The covenant blessing is beyond economics, politics, profession, location, gender, race and ethnicity.
The blessing is validated even in drought, famine, economic bust and scarcity.
The blessing is not in Dollars neither is poverty in Naira, the blessed are the best everywhere and anywhere; be blessed first.

“And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.”Deuteronomy 28:2-4.

Dear father, it’s so pleasant to know that I am blessed, not by anything I have done but by your design and desire. I am blessed anywhere and everywhere in Jesus name.



The cure; one word from God.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. John 1:1-3.

My learning and knowledge of science fail me sometimes. One seed from the man is needed to fertilize the seed of the woman. Yet, millions are deposited by the man for one to fertilise the woman. Is nature that wasteful? Why give out so much instead of one. A man with some thousand of seed is said to be unable to fertilise a woman. Thinking about it defies logic. Contrariwise, one word from God is all it takes to become pregnant. Creation is by his word, procreation is his word at work. The word of God is the seed of fertility and the cure for infertility. That is God’s help to man and the cure for barreness. One seed from man is all that is needed, one word from God is all it takes.

“He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.”Psalms 107:20.

Life starts when God speak, science creates nothing, it observes all things. Can an observer be compared to the creator? The empirical evidence is from what is obvious, the explanation can be flawed. Creation is by his word, the same word recreates. Science observes, the word creates, recreates and correct errors. Babies are made by the sent word; it becomes flesh. “The word of God is preventive, curative, surgical and corrective” Damaged fallopian tubes, womb, hormonal imbalance are healed by the sent word. The word is the cure, One word is enough to penetrate, cure and correct. Get the word, thats the cure. The seed of fertility.

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight:but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” Hebrews 4:12-13.

From strength to strength.

When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday. Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me?hope thou in God:for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance. Psalms 42:4-5.

Where God is present, his hand is present; help is also present. Multitudes present themselves to worship, everyone is not in touch with him. Worship service centers abound in town, those that connect collect his help. Those that keep a holyday are happy but joy & praise is for worshippers. Help is always available in his presence; joy is the sauce of the saved. His presence is the service station of the redeemed, Help is the health of the countenance of many. Fear makes sad, dissaoppointment grants gloomy faces. Joy is the assurance that the helper is always present. His presence is the recharge station and our ever present help. Joy is a prerequisite to obtaining help in his presence.

“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.”Isaiah 12:2-3.

God has not outsourced the ministry of helps to another. In Zion, the wells of salvation abound with abundant supply. There is more than enough help for all that come to service in Zion. The number has not overwhelmed the helper, the connection guarantees you are helped. Joy is a ticket, an invitation to his help; it is also a tonic provided in Zion. As we meet with multitude that come to Zion never miss the help of his hand. When help clicks, the countenance changes. Those that cannot be helped from Zion, remain ever helpless. There is no help too big for his hand, no number too great for this service. One helper for all helps, one place for every help. Those that drink from the wells in Zion go from strength to strength.

“They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.”Psalms 84:7.

Changed in his name

And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us. And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. Acts 3:4-6.
Beggars are common sight in towns and vilages around the country.
Beggars on the street,parks, markets, event centres, traffic jams, everywhere asking for alms.
“At all at all, na em bad”. Twenty Naira is not too small and One Thousand is not too big. Some give and move on.
This has become the norm rather than the exception.
Alms are given for diverse reasons, even when we know that alms-giving is not the solution. A well child needs a home and education not a bowl or leading am elderly blind beggar daily.
Peter and John saw a man needing more than Silver and Gold.
Jesus was their highest treasure and healing was the beggers highest desire. The creator and giver of silver and Gold was their offer to this beggar. Much Silver and Gold has been given to this beggar over the years without change of story. He remained a beggar.
Alms are never enough; Christ is always more than enough. His look on them delivered Christ’s touch to his body.
In the name of Jesus, a man, lame man from his mother’s womb walked, leaped and praised God. His name turned a lame beggar to dance and praise God. His name turns shame to glory, disease to health, and death to life. In Jesus name a turnaround is yours now!
The name of Jesus gives treasure for every trash situation of life.
His name changes things, persons, lives and situations.
“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”2 Corinthians 3:18.

Healed at once.

And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? Mark 5:30.

Not longago, I heard a testimony of a man healed by God after hearing an audible click on his back and his broken backbones straightened. He was wearing a waist brace until that day.

He testified of the tangible touch on his back after touching the clothes of an anointed man of God who was passing through the crowded aisle to the podium.
When this testimony was shared by the man of God, he explained that until the fellow testified, he was unawares of that healing.
When the woman with the issue of blood touched Jesus, he knew that virtue left him. The virtue was his own. When they touched him, he knew not because the virtue was not his own.
That was instructive. The virtue for healing is Christ’s. Those that touch him experience it.
Jesus knows your condition and has the virtue for your healing. Faith in him releases the flow of virtue. His name is the current and eternal password for his touch. Those that call on his name must believe in what that name carries. Those that have him use his name for healing and wholeness.
The name of Jesus is the summary of all the scriptures. It releases the power of the Cross, and resurrection at once.
