No one is meant to be an island in this world. Whether you are working on a project or you are walking on the Christian pathway, you need someone to help you achieve your goal or to reach your destination. Life is a continuous battle against your arch-enemy, the devil. He wants you to fall; he wants you to fall in your life endeavours and in your Christian faith. God’s word says, “…your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5: 8). Satan engineers sin, failure, calamity, sickness, family problems and a variety of negative circumstances to bring discouragement, disappointment, sorrow, pain and pangs, grief and torment. You need help of a friend whose strength and might is infinity greater than the power of your formidable foe.
That friend is Jesus. He is a friend of inestimable value. His love is…

‘REACHING OUT…STOP DOUBTING AND BELIEVE.’ (John 20: 25).
New Christians aren’t the only ones who struggle with doubt; sometimes seasoned believers do too. One Christian author calls them “doubt storms … commotion” days when the enemy’s too big, the task too great, the future too bleak… and the answers too few. Thomas said, ‘Unless I … put my finger where the nails were … I will not believe …‘ [Jesus] said … ‘reach out your hand … stop doubting and believe.’ Thomas asks the question we all ask when we’re struggling, ‘If God is so good, why do I feel so bad? If His message is so clear, why am I confused? If He in control, why do good people wrenching problems? … You’d rather be a philosopher than a hypocrite, so you.. pray with one eye open and wonder … about starring children .. the power of prayer … the depth of grace … Christians in cancer wards … and who you are to ask such questions anyway.’ True faith only goes into operation when there are no answers.’ God says, ‘My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways (Isaiah 55: 8). The truth is, God doesn’t think like us. He sees the big picture and works toward a specific end. In a conversation with His disciples Jesus said, ‘I have many more things to say … but they are too many for you now’ (John 16: 12). When you find yourself doubting and questioning God, pray: ‘Lord, believing isn’t easy when I’m hurt and confused, and You are silent. Like Thomas, I want proof that You love me. Help me see beyond my desire for peace and comfort, beyond my doubts and unanswered questions, and grasp the truth of Your unfailing love and grace. ‘Then you are on with the answer from Him at any moment. Shalom!
“If you…believe in your heart…you will be saved.” (Romans 10: 9).
A newly born again believer writer, ‘I’ve accepted Jesus as my Saviour. But then I slip, and end up wondering if my faith is strong enough. If I’m really saved why doesn’t God talk to me like He talks to other people? You’d be surprised how many of us walk around harbouring doubts that steal our peace and assurance.
The Bible says: ‘if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.’ Are you trusting in Christ? Have you confessed Him as your Saviour? Then you’re saved! Jesus said, ‘He who believes in Me has everlasting life’ (John 6: 47). Doubts always arise when you go by your feelings instead of God’s Word. Your emotions will change like the weather. The enemy will use them to tell you that salvation’s fine for other people but not for you. Apostle Paul said, ‘I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him.’ (2 Timothy 1: 12). The One you’ve committed your eternal well-being to, is committed to saving and keeping you. ‘Faith is the simplest, easiest, plainest thing in the world… it’s simply believing God.
When your faith feels shaky, pray, ‘dear Lord Jesus, I’ve placed my trust in You. Your Word says I can know I have eternal life (see John 5: 13). It’s not a matter of feeling, thinking or wishing; it’s matter of believing and knowing that You keep Your Word. So I choose to doubt my doubts, and believe YOU Lord!’ so, help me Lord in Jesus Name. Shalom!
Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. (Pro.16:18)
The spirit of pride is the spirit of the bottomless pit of hell. The hordes of the darkness had short the arrow of pride into the church and against leaders and the followers in Christ. The arrow of pride was launched in to the church because of the weakness of the leaders and disciples, they are fearful in the spirit, yes! The investigator spirit finds out the course of the church weakness. And they choose the pride.
On earth there is nothing like him, Which is made without fear.
He beholds every high thing; He is king over all the children of pride.” (Job 41:33-34)
The enemy affects the sky first before attacking the believers; they govern the realms of the sky in the spirit, that’s the communication to the territory areas. Enemy likes to slaves’ mankind, enemy likes to work against the rules of God Almighty to afflict the mankind.
The highest power of the enemy against our Kingdom is pride; he is the spirit of delusion. The church must be at this moment be alert to hear the sound of the trumpet blowing by the voice of the seer. Pride is the hardest enemy to see when we put off the CLOAK of humility. Without spiritual Cloak no one can see the hidden enemy in the journey, instead they will be fighting any one correcting them in the Kingdom. Any one possess the spirit of pride will uses his or her sword against his brethren. The Lord is very closer to the homeless than the king living in the castle. The power of pride had eaten up many generational leaders in this century. They are blind with this because the devils gave them thought against the cloak wisdom to never it put on, because the enemy knew the cloak of humility open eyes. Enemy had short the arrow into the air to pollute the atmosphere of the believers.
God is always willing to speak or reveals many things to us. He loves to communicate with us than to always listening to us. But as for those who obey Him, He keep encourages to be always stand firm in the rules of His command.
Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: (ps.31:20)
As soldiers of Christ we should always stay close to HIM, inquire of the Lord before making major decisions and keep that mantle on ourselves. The cloak mantle of humility. Then the enemy will not be able to easily blind side us as he did too many of our people in the Kingdom.
Too many of us thinking that some elders and leaders in this journey race as hold their stand not knowing that they are on the ground falling in the race of the last day set ahead of them because of the spirit of pride in them.
Holy Spirit told me and warned me long time ago, saying “never allow pride and fear and the day you allow they are the last relationship with genuine word from Me” this is the Word from the Lord in those day of my schooling spirit, then I separately create a memorial mind to pt thing like this in case of forgettable period.
The arrow of pride cause bleeding wound than any other weapon enemy use against the believers. Enemy like divisions in the church and this division can come through the arrow of pride.
The Lord is willing to always support who go forth to do the WILL of the FATHER, He wills never leaves us or forsake us. He is will all the warriors just as He is with them in the days of the Bible war, to accomplish His will and to have the wisdom of His Son.
THE POWER OF PRIDE
I will break the pride of your power; I will make your heavens like iron and your earth like bronze. (Lev.26:19)
This is the reward of those who walk in the circle of pride and punishment. This verse of the scripture marks and remove the veils in my eye when I got it, and quickly get the message in it. The enemy hardest work is to kill the man with his glory by pride. The church stated: “…I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing…” the church (God family) had never witness any of His move in this century but increase and improvement of the knowledge’s He gave to them since He created man. There is a lot for as many that had prepared and persistently waiting working with Him in this journey. The war is on the rages, the battle is hot, the front is too strong for the simple in the Kingdom, yet many had received the bottomless pit spirit called pride into their lives. They may not know because the spirit of pride work and blindfold eye mind their victim in the battle. “But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”(2 Cor.4:2-4) mind eyes is blind to see the wondrous things of Heaven had prepared to move into many soldiers (the believers) that want to see the Lords perfection in the starting work. The battle against the spirit of pride can only be won by the CLOAK of humility. Many visions, glory and potentials has been perish at the junctions of pride, pride in words action, pride in service, pride in dressing, pride in giving, pride in attendance to the church services and many ways this spirit occupy in the believers lives and attitudes characters.
He is coming to break this spirit as His promise to the church. Many gives to see their pastors as their mate, many educated speaks against their pastors because of illiterate in pronouncement, yet they cannot know when God is speaking to them because of the spirit of pride in them, pride had rob many of their destiny on earth. “I got this massage yesterday night from the Lord, leaders should be careful in 2014 in a year of desperation of the Lord”. Shalom!
Almighty God, the one true God, created the universe. He created the earth: then He put man on the earth and actually gave him rule over it. He also made man His companion and friend.
But the evil forces, satan, deceived man and took dominion over the earth by tempting Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, to disobey the command of God. When man yielded to temptation he brought sin into the world. Because God is good perfect, He cannot fellowship with sinful man; thus man separated himself from God. Furthermore, satan snatched the dominion over the earth from Adam and became the ruler over the earth.
God is a good and perfect God. He is merciful, but His also just. He had told Adam that if Adam disobeyed Him, the punishment would be death and eternal separation from God. Death would come to the physical body, and the spirit (which can never die) would be cast into darkness and loneliness, eternally under the domination of evil forces-a terrible domination for man who was created to be a friend of God.
But God loved the man whom He had created, and He knew all things before they happened. So long ago He made a plan whereby man could be brought back into the presence of Almighty God, and the power of satan would be destroyed.
Thus God put a redeeming plan into effect. Thousand of years ago the Spirit of God cause holy prophets to write the Good New-that the only begotten Son of God would one day come to the earth and actually take the punishment for man, so that man might be restored to the favour of God. Through this plan, when our lives are finished on earth, we will go to live in the Kingdom of Heaven where God rules and reigns.
Thus more than 2,000 years ago, Jesus the SON of God, was born of a virgin into the world, and He loved man just as God His Father des. Because of His great love for every man, including you and me, He was willing to suffer death in our place. He took the punishment that was to come upon us, and God forgave us for Christ’s sake. Not because we deserve it, but because our creator loves us.
False religious leaders saw how the people were drawn to Jesus and how they worshiped Him. They became so jealous and envious that they put Him to death by crucifixion. They did not know that in so doing they were fulfilling the awesome plan which would redeem man from his falling state.
So in the spirit and soul of Christ were placed the sins of the entire world from the beginning to the end. In the terrible agony of that hour, when Christ took the sins and sorrow of the world upon Himself, God turned His face from His Son. Because God cannot look upon sin, He turned away even from His only begotten Son, so that even Christ Himself cried out, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”
Christ paid the penalty of death and separation from God so that man once again could have fellowship with God. When Christ had finished His work, He arose from the grave after three days, He talked with many of His followers and disciples and told them again that all who would accept Him as savior and Lord would find that He would come and dwell in their hearts.
Then, as He was talking to His disciples, He ascended into Heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Farther. But before Christ ascended into Heaven, He made another great and startling promise: He said He would come again and take those who are living and watching for Him, to Heaven! In other words, some may die before Jesus returns, but will instantly be taken to Heaven and given a perfect and immortal body-not the one we now have. Even before Jesus revealed this event to His followers, some of the great of old prophesied of this second coming of the Son of God (even before Christ had come the first time).
From these prophecies and from the words of Christ, we can know of the many signs which show that His coming is very near. When He will returns for those who believe and trust in Him, the bible tells us those still on earth will go through seven years of great tribulation as satan, in revenge and ager, unleashes his terrible evil upon the earth. He will have his own ruler, called the antichrist, who will kill many who want to live for Christ. After seven years Christ will set up the Kingdom of God on earth. Satan will be bound; wars will cease; and golden age of history will begin. Those who faithfully live for God and look for Jesus’ return will live with God forever and rule with Him in His Kingdom.
A careful study of the bible reveals much information concerning the time of Christ’s return. Although no one is to know the day or the hour, no not angels, neither Christ Himself, but only the Father “32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.” (Mark 13:32), God’s people are to know the times and the seasons, fort the day is not to overtake them unawares as thief, “4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.” (1 Thess. 5:4).
Yet even the closet followers of Christ were not altogether clear as to the time the Lord would return. Some though He would come back in their lifetime. However, Christ taught that the time of His absence would be long. He declared His going away would be as a man “travelling into a far country” who would return “after a long time” “14 ¶ For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods…19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.” (Matt. 25:14, 19).
12 ¶ Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:12 says:
To delay means to retard, to hinder to prolong, to postpone until a later date, to slow something down longer than expected or to be confined to waiting room of life. It means to arrest, to detain, to suspend or to withhold. Generally, it is to slow down, this is why I keep telling people to beware of certain dreams such as picking snails, picking tortoises etc. these are terrible dreams of delay. There are several kinds of delay.
Destiny is a foundation of time. Destiny is an interest of God that is why He created it. Destiny is an interest of man because man want fulfillment. Destiny too is an interest of the devil because he targets the destiny of people. Satan troubles a person because of his future. So, most times, when the devil finds that he cannot derail a person because’s destiny, he will delay it, believing that when that happens, the person will be destroyed. The first foolish virgins delayed the purchase of their oil. They bought what they should buy at the wrong time. They delayed and the door was shut. The door of destiny can be closed when it closed; it is finished, decree by the decree of Heaven that you will not regret, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Delay is a destruction, God knew this when He asked the angels to drag Lot out of Sodom. Most delay is programmed by the enemy.
There is only one good type of delay and that is divine delay. All others are bad. God sometimes delays deliverance and breakthroughs for His own specific purpose. For example if God knows you arte going to be involved in a motor accident in future, He may decide to puncture your tyre now so when you are busy fixing the tyre, the tragedy will happen without you being involved. There are people who, if they caught up with a car at Motor Park, they would not be alive today. But something delaying or prevented them from getting to that place and the time they got there, the vehicle they were rushing to catch up with had crashed. So, by divine intervention, they were delayed. That is the only good delay.
Delay can be categorized as follows:
- Divine delay
- Personal delay lives in the case of Lot. 15 ¶ And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city. 16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.
- Programmed delay
- Inheritaged delay
- Witchcraft delay
- Unconscious delay. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. The delay caused by their no acquiring exral oil made the door to be shut against them. I decree by the decree of Heaven that every limitation, stagnation and staleness that the enemy has fired into your life should die in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
- Hidden delay
- Marital delay
- Prosperity delay
- Progress delay
- Strongman delay. This is when a strongman is assigned to detain and delay a person
- Evil dedication delay
- Evil covenant and curses delay. But one fact I want you to know that most delays in good things are sponsored by the enemy. Most of these delays are programmed by enemies of our destinies and this is very serious.
Most of delays are programmed by the enemy. When you do the right thing at the wrong time, it is not good enough. When you begin to suffer postponement of blessing, unnecessary hatred by people who should help you, inability of destiny helpers to locate you, retardation in business or career, repeat sickness that lingers on until it renders you financially useless, deferment of appointments for good things etc are forms of satanic delay. Perhaps satanic delay has brought to a situation where the enemy is laughing at you, you have come to a place where delay is now leading to bitterness, anger and provocation, it is causing you weeping and making you wearing and uncomfortable, it is bringing accusation and counter accusation, and you are being called witch or wizard, you need to pray. Some people have backslide completely as a result of this; they have left Jesus Christ. Some, while seeking alternative solution fall victims with wrong religious cage of eternal problems. “A woman who was looking for the fruit of the womb, Her-in-law wanted to throw her out, she went to ‘a man of God’ which said she should of her cloth for crosscheck if the anointing to bear children is still in her body and she did,” delay pushed her into that kind of a thing. I pray that anything the had programmed into your life that is making your life forcerated will lead to your breakthrough. The power of God crushes delay now in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. There is an enemy at the gate that does not want believers to possess their possessions.
CAUSES OF DELAY
- Sin and disobedience: delay has some causes; the greatest of them is sin. If you are living a life of sin, God will abandon you, HE says, psalm 125:5 ‘As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: but peace shall be upon Israel. If you are living in disobedience and sin, you need to repent.
- Idolatry delay
- Evil covenant and curses
- Satanic background
- Satanic dedication
- Demonic arresting a person to one spot. 1 ¶ Then we turned, and took our journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea, as the LORD spake unto me: and we compassed mount Seir many days. 2 And the LORD spake unto me, saying, 3 Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward. Deuteronomy 2; they were roaming around the same place. The spirit of delay and beating about the bush had caught up with them.
- Spiritual ignorance. There are so many young people who say they are born-0again but have not started praying yet.
- Heavy loads. Delay can be caused by what we call heavy loads. When the enemy sees that somebody is progressing too fast, he will put a heavy load on his lead so that it can slow down. Nay young brothers and sisters do not understand that sex outside marriage is a heavy load which the enemy is putting on them to slow down their destiny, before they realized it, the enemy would have put a trailer load of luggage on their heads and they cannot move again.
- Helpers famine
- Spiritual indecision
- Wrong use of tongue: using your tongue wrongly can cause delay. Those men said they were like grasshoppers in Numbers 14 and God said, ‘so shall it be since you said it with your mouth that you are like grasshoppers.
- Fear of the future
- Closed gate. God gave the Israelites Jericho but the enemy had closed the gate. Do you find it difficult to start or finish a project? Do you do profitless hard work? Are divine helpers that are supposed to help you rejecting you? Do you have a very bad job or you are even jobless? Are you attacked in the dream with cobwebs, snail, chains, being tied down, getting into hole and not coming out? All these are evidence that you are being tied down.
WHAT IS WAY OUT
- You must ensure that there is no sin in your life: any sin in your life will delay your miracle: any sin in your life will make God to tarry in coming to you aid. The Bible says that His hands are not short so that He cannot help but your sins have made Him to go far away from you.
- You most have faith: you most have faith, patient and steadfastness, if the delay is from God, you must pray enquiry prayer to know whether God is telling you to wait or saying, ‘no, this is an attack, treat it like of war, ‘and then with violent prayer, you seek for divine intervention. From the book of exodus chapter 4, God was telling pharaoh, “let my people go” and He continue all through the chapter 12 that the yoke of delay was completely crushed.
Violent prayer is the only way out of the yoke of satanic delay. Violent prayers have the ability to break through closed doors. Violent prayer is the only prayer that violates the law of gravity, it takes it by force, and it will break through to Heavens itself. Violent prayers will break every ritual and formality. Although violent prayer sound offensive in many ears like it happened on the day Jesus Christ stood, “Lazarus, come forth.” It was very offensive.
There is an enemy at the gate that does not want believers to possess their possessions but with violent prayer they will be destroyed. Violent prayers are relentless prayer that shakes the gate of hell. God is happy when He sees someone who can pray that kind of prayer because the Bible say, you who remain Jehovah give him no peace until He has made Jerusalem a peace in the land, it says give Jehovah no peace, continue to bombard and pound the Heaven with prayers.
The prayer point now have be prepared by Holy Ghost and as you being to pray them, strange awesome things will begin to happen and what the enemy thinks’ he has already concluded will be reversed by he overhauling power of God and there will be a way.
However, if you have not surrendered your life to Jesus Christ, do not bother to pray this prayer because they will not work. If you are ready to give your life to Christ, say this prayer, “Father, in Jesus name, I come before you now. I confess my sins and repent of them. Forgive me Lord and cleanse me with your blood. Lord Jesus Christ come into my life and takes over my life in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen

- Arrows of backwardness fired into my hands and legs come out and die in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth
- Chains of stagnation break in my life in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

- Satanic decree over my picture, catch fire in the name of Jesus Christ.
- Every agent of delay assigned against me from this direction, I command you to die in the name of Jesus Christ. (pray this prayer pointing to the north, south, east and west, then point top the ground and Heavens)
- Every all of Jericho blacking my way, scatter by fire in the name of Jesus Christ.
