Praying in Jesus Name is so dynamic! It never fails! The Bible establishes that we do not pray to Jesus but we pray to the Father in Jesus name. The name of Jesus wins the attention of God anytime and every time, that is the divine order! Now, Jesus Himself said in John 16:23-24;
“And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will GIVE you.”Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.”
Notice that I chose to capitalize the word ‘GIVE’ in that Bible passage. It is because it has a very remarkable meaning in the original text. The word translated as give in that sentence above is the Greek word ‘didomee’ which means ‘to manufacture’ or ‘bring forth into existence’. This means that whatever we ask the Father in Jesus’ name shall be manufactured for us immediately! The Father is ready to bring forth anything for His children who ask Him in Jesus’ name. Jesus was so sure that we can have whatever we ask the Father, provided we do so in His name. The only condition He gave us in this kind of prayer is to do so in His name. We do not need any extra effort when we ask in His name because all the condition for receiving is already fulfilled in that wonderful name, even your required faith is already present in that name.
The name of Jesus is so complete; He has been granted the most excellent name in existence (Phil. 2:9). The power and benefits of praying in Jesus name is immeasurable! What are you still waiting for? Is it that you don’t know what you can demand as a daughter or son from your Father? Well, thank God Jesus answered that question; He said WHATEVER you ask which means anything at all. Your heavenly Father doesn’t run an earthly economy; He can never be broke from giving. So, demand anything and He still remains the same because He operates an infinite economy. If you don’t limit God, then you’re limitless!
All things are available and all things are achievable because all things are yours (1Cor. 3:21-22). Start making demands from the resources of God in the name of Jesus and your heavenly Father has positioned His angels to manufacture them for you directly on demand! However, failure to forgive those who have wronged you or settle with those you have wronged may hinder your prayers, so settle that and you’re cleared. “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him so that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses” (Mark 11:25-26 NKJV). There is authority over demons, healing power, dominion over sickness, sin and death, supernatural provision, opportunities and all the good things you can ever imagine in the name of Jesus!
On the ninth day in the month of March, the year been 2008, a Hand touched me very early in the morning while I was still in bed at exactly five o’clock. I woke and looked up to see who it was and behold, it was the Lord standing by my bed. He didn’t look any different than He was in all the times that He had visited me, beginning from when I was five. Everything about Him can be summed up in one word; Love. Jesus told me on that day that the Word of God is the soul’s injection. He was signifying to me by the Holy Spirit that the human soul is often sick with all kinds of carnal thoughts and infections. Injecting it constantly with God’s Word is the only way to wholeness. We cannot keep our thinking straight without the Word of God. Ephesians 5:26 speaks of the washing of water by the Word and Jesus said that we are clean by the Words that He speaks to us (John 15:3). And in John 17:17, Jesus asked the Father to sanctify us by His truth and He went further to say “Thy Word is truth”. The Bible in Romans 12:2 urges us not to be gradually changed to the image of this world but to be transformed or transfigured by the renewal of our mind or soul. That renewal is through the Word of God and it is the Word of God that is the still waters that restores our soul according to Psalm 23 and Ephesians 5:26.
The sickness of the soul comes from the infection of the dark thoughts and scenes that we often pick up from the media (TV, newspaper, radio, postal, movies and etc). They also generate from Satan’s suggestions into our minds or the wrong things that we hear people say around us. Now, that takes us to the reason why most of the battle we will face here on earth will be against thoughts in the mind…READ MORE HERE
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 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.
When God created the humankind in the beginning of creation, He created them in both the male and female form and named them the humankind. Now, God spoke the blessing over them and those blessings were not optional, they were compulsory. He commanded them to be fruitful, to multiply, to replenish the earth, to have dominion and to subdue it. The blessings that God pronounced over them was very important to their destiny, it was a series of prophetic blessings and commandments.
The last two words of the blessings however revealed something that was very remarkable to their destiny. God told them to subdue the earth and have dominion over the swimming fish, the flying birds and every living thing that moves upon the earth. Now, if you take a look at those two words (“dominion” and “subdue”) in the original text of the Hebrew language in which it was said, you will be amazed how it suggests that there was an enemy that would want to take the earth from them who must be subdued or conquered. The word translated as “subdue” in the original text also means to conquer or bring into subjection by force. God blessed the humankind with the ability to conquer the earth and bring the earth and the devil into subjection. If there would be no enemy, then there wouldn’t be anyone to be conquered or forcefully bring into subjection, isn’t it?
The Hebrew word that was rendered as “have dominion” in that passage also suggest the same thing; it means to tread down, or subjugate. It also means to prevail against, reign over or take control of. So, the humankind was to do all that on the earth. God saw that the enemy was coming in his tricks in attempts to take the earth from the humankind and He blessed the humankind with the ability to defeat him and subdue or keep him underfoot forever… READ MORE HERE
You have the anointing of God flowing through you if you are born again. The anointing of God is not the Holy Spirit, the anointing of God is the power of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit is God, He’s not an influence emanating from God, but He’s God Almighty for the bible says ” Now the Lord is the Spirit…”2 Cor. 3; 17. The bible also calls Him God in Acts 5:3-4 “But peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Ghost…. thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God”. Jesus Christ also chose the pronoun “He” while promising the Holy Spirit, not “it” “And I will pray the father, and he shall give you another comforter, that ‘he’ may abide with you forever…whom the world cannot receive because it seeth ‘him’ not…” John14; 16-17 The Lord said the world cannot receive the Holy Ghost because it seeth Him not. The reason is because the world is ruled and dominated by the senses. Over the centuries, humanity has trained the brain in the school of the five senses and so the un-renewed mind receives through the senses and found life miserable the moment it get a little beyond the senses. The world must see to believe but thank God we’re beyond the senses. Our own education proceeds within- from the Spirit. We know inwardly but the world sees outwardly to believe. READ MORE HERE
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Love of God, and the COMMUNION OF THE HOLY GHOST, be with you all Amen”
(2 Corinthians 13:14)
The word “communion” here is the Greek word “Koinonia” which means partnership, participation, intercourse, fellowship among others.
Communion with the Holy Spirit is like standing at the edge of a great sea and attempting to reach further. It’s a journey into the deep from the shallow to the deepest until deep calls unto deep.
“Deep calls unto deep at the noise of your waterspouts: all your billows are gone over me.” (Psalm 42:7)
We begin with our feet in the water, and then we go even further. We reach where the water has taken up the knee, but we are not to stop there. We reach further and we are waist deep in the water, but that’s not our destination. We then reach further-we go deeper until we are lost in the sea- caught up in the midst of God…READ MORE HERE
During a thunderstorm a little girl threw herself into her mother’s arms crying, ”I’m afraid!”
The mother tried to quiet the child by reminding her of God’s loving and protecting care… But the little one clung the closer “I know God loves me, mummy,” she said, “but when it’s thundering and lightening, I want someone with skin to love me!”
I believe this is without doubt the reason why God put on human skin and became human being .He intended that we respond not by work, since humanity has become too weak to live up to God’s standard as a result of the infection of the sin virus that got into her system from the fall, back in Eden.
Until Christ the “Antivirus” came, we could not come up with any tangible work from our efforts.
Now, we are to respond only by faith in His finished work-believing in what He has done for our sake. He did it all!
Divinity put on humanity to show the love He is and to reproduce Himself into us in love and righteousness.
He wanted to touch us with His love in a human way. That was the only language humanity could understand.
“And the Word became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacle-fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile-among us: and we (actually saw His glory-His honor, His majesty: such glory as an only begotten son receives from his father, full of grace (favor, loving kindness) and truth. John 1; 14.Amplified Bible… READ MORE
“For God so loved the WORLD” is a wonderful phrase. If God didn’t love us unconditionally, we would have no hope.
John 3:16 gives us a picture of God’s love: “For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life” (The Amplified Bible).
“Whoever” means anybody! The most vicious and vile person you can imagine is a “whoever.”…READ MORE HERE
