You need the name of Jesus and you need the Fire of the Holy Ghost. Jesus said He will baptize us with Holy Spirit and fire and the Bible says that God will make His ministers flames of fire. The manifest presence of God is what protects and delivers, and it is the anointing. It was that same presence of God that went with the Israelites and as cloud and fire. Always pray for the fire of the Holy Spirit to fill you up and surround you.
Jerusalem will be a city without walls because of the great number of people and animals in it. And I myself will be a wall of fire around it,’ declares the Lord, ‘and I will be its glory within.’ Zechariah 2:5
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him. Acts 10:38
Jesus was anointed with the Holy Spirit and power. That was why He lived a constantly victorious life. You can be anointed with the Holy Spirit without being anointed with power. You can have all the fruits and so many gifts of the Holy Spirit yet, not be anointed with power.
Power gift is usually seen operating in the lives of Apostles and Evangelists. Some Prophets in the Old Testament had power gifts. Moses and Elijah are example of those who had fire or power from God. Joseph had the Spirit of God but he did not have power gifts.
So Pharaoh asked them, “Can we find anyone like this man, one in whom is the spirit of God?” Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has made all this known to you, there is no one so discerning and wise as you. You shall be in charge of my palace, and all my people are to submit to your orders. Only with respect to the throne will I be greater than you.” Genesis 31:38-40
The Spirit of the Lord was upon Jesus, to manifest love and mercy through Him. The same Holy Spirit is with us today, to manifest love and mercy upon us and through us, by His power.
May we cooperate with the Holy Spirit in His ministry of teaching, healing, deliverance and help. May we always recognize that it is only by the power of the Holy Spirit, that the church can be fruitful and effective.
And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18
All of us, then, reflect the glory of the Lord with uncovered faces; and that same glory, coming from the Lord, who is the Spirit, transforms us into his likeness in an ever greater degree of glory. 2 Corinthians 3:18
Know The Holy Spirit
The Lord is the Lord and His glory is His glory. He is a person and His glory is His very blood, substance and essence. Some people confuse the two but they are not the same. We have a wonderful person with a wonderful personality and we have what emanates from Him and comes out of Him. He is a person.
The glory of God can be compared to sperm in a physical man. ( It can also be compared to water, food, cloud, smoke, blood, rock etc. ) There is spiritual sperm, blood, food etc. Demons also release their own filthy and dirty sperm into people and it destroys them.
A man releases sperm and babies are made and God releases His glory and life is created. Miracles, supernatural healings and deliverance occur. There is a natural glory of God. The Bible tells us that the whole world is full of His glory. Every good thing you see in nature reflects the glory of God. Even in my example of a man making a baby with a woman, the natural glory of God has to be with that couple for that to happen. When a human is under a curse, the natural glory and protection are reduced and diminished in their lives.
When the natural glory is absent, a man will be with no natural hedge or protection and plenty of demons will then inhabit him. He becomes like a public dustbin or toilet where people dump their problems and enter him to refresh, heal and cleanse themselves. People in this condition are the sacrificed humans who were turned into shrines and gods by human priests. The priests, including Catholic priests are clothed with demonic power that they use to force those humans to save humanity. Some have boasted to me that it is a good thing however they will never allow themselves to be the sacrificial victims. Man is naturally a wicked being. Only God can make man good and holy. A lot of pagan “good men” that you see are evil. I know this because God shows me people’s aura and spiritual coverings. Man looks at the external but God looks at the heart and He shows me the heart.
Now, a lot of people are interested in the glory or power that comes from the Lord but they are not interested in the Lord. They desire the gifts but they don’t desire the person. They treat the Lord like an object. The Lord once said to me, “I am not an object, I am a person. Most people treat me like I am an object but I am a person.” An object is something you can use to get your wants and please or satisfy yourself. An object has no emotions but a person has emotions. The Lord is a person with emotions and He can be hurt and grieved. We need to realize this.
When we desire what comes from the Lord without wanting fellowship, communion or relationship with Him, we leave the Lord cold and are not able to move Him. The Lord has chosen to be awakened and turned on by us – it is an honor not a burden. It makes relationship very sweet for the otter person to know your heart and how to move your spirit.
To turn someone on is to please, move, arouse, stir or excite that persons spirit to action and not necessarily sexual action. If you don’t move the Lord and turn Him on like how you turn on a light, you cannot experience or enjoy Him. You can also turn the Lord off or move, arouse, and stir Him to anger or jealousy.
For they provoked him to anger with their high places, And moved him to jealousy with their graven images. Psalm 78:58 ERV
They angered him with their high places; they aroused his jealousy with their idols. NIV
For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images. NASB
For an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted. John 5:4
The water in John 5:4 symbolizes the Holy Spirit because He is often refereed to as the water of life or living water. Because He is spiritual water, we are advised to thirst for Him.
Treating the Lord like an object is just like having a very cold husband or wife. Imagine a wife who just wants a man’s wealth for comfort, convenience, wealth, societal title, privilege and children. She even prefers to get sperm from him for artificial insemination but does not want any other kind of fellowship with her husband. She hates any form of intimacy with him – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. She simply wants to be a Mrs. She wants the children and wealth of the rich man but does not love or desire that man. It might sound cold and cruel but some people do not love their partners. They entered into the relationship for their own needs, comfort and convenience.
We cannot use that kind of attitude and mindset with the Lord because He knows everything. He sees through our schemes and cold hearts even when we are not even aware of our coldness and lukewarmness. The heart of man is very deceptive even to the owner of that heart. A lot of humans revel in pretense and are blinded by the same pretense and fakeness.
But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! Revelation 3:16
The Lord courted and chased us by dying for us on the cross. I have found out that the Lord has a lot of love and passion for man but He holds that passion in check because He perfectly in control. He exposed Himself emotionally and physically when He came to this earth to die for us and save us. He laid His love and passion bare for us to see. He was naked before us with nothing hidden.
When you expose your love and affections for someone you are naked before that person, that is why a lot of immature and insecure people hide their love. People hide their love because, If that person that they love is an immature person, he or she will begin to abuse, use and exploit them. If care is not taken, they will end up broken hearted and suffer from love sickness. A sick heart can kill a man. That is why the Bible says we should guard our hearts jealousy because out of the heart issues of life flow out.
That same attitude of using is the same attitude that most of us take with the Lord but fortunately, we cannot use the Lord, abuse Him, or exploit Him because He is very strong and powerful emotionally.
He is in firm control of His emotions and the fact that He loves us will not make him weak and let Him subject Himself to us to be used, controlled, abused and enslaved. This is one of the Character traits that I love most about the Lord. He is so strong, firm and loving. There is just no fault in Him. The Lord cannot be used but demons, on the other hand, who pretend to be gods can be controlled and used.
Since it is the Lord that gives the glory or supplies the glory, should we not try to make ourselves more compatible with Him? We should make ourselves more beautiful by being more submissive to Him. We should sincerely try to get to know Him as a person – His likes, His dislikes His desires, His word and His will. The more we know Him as a person and seek Him with worship, obedience and desire, the more He will release His presence and blood to us.
Jesus is Lord, the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ is Lord on earth here. Our success as Christians depend on how much we submit to the Holy Spirit and let Him work through us, as vessels of honor and glory. He is the Lord and His glory is available to us if we know how to have a working, active relationship with Him that is based on love and respect.
He wants to be loved, sought after and run after just like a bride seeking her beloved fiancé or husband. He wants us to respond to His love and passion with love and passion. When we get to Heaven, we will see the Lord Jesus as He is, and enjoy Him for who He is. What a wonderful place that Heaven is. To constantly behold the face of the Lord and enjoy His glorious presence and worship at His face, face to face.
While we are here on earth, we should be like the virgins that had oil in their lamps. Your spirit is the lamp and the oil is the degree of glory that resides in you. The Lord wants us to be full of oil and glory. Decide to seek the the Lord today so that you will enjoy Him the same way that you will enjoy Him in Heaven.
When I fellowship with the Lord and I enjoy intimacy with Him, it is indescribable. I am totally lost for words and smitten with love and adoration for Him. He has told me that what I enjoy with Him will be how heaven will be but at a much deeper and higher level.
The Lord is sweet, beautiful and interesting. His glory should be our number two quest after quest to know Him, love Him and obey Him. May we seek Him and know Him.
May great grace be upon us in Jesus. May grace, mercy and peace be ours in full measure.
Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked,
Out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man. (Psalm 71:4 NKJV)
Yes, some men are unrighteousness and cruel. If they combine that with supernormal powers, then their victims remain in their net until superior power descends. This is not a joke. A man can hold a man or many men in spiritual slavery, torment and pain. The Lord knows all this that is why Jesus is our deliverer.
As it is written: “The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob. Romans 11:26
The truth is that some people cannot fulfill their destinies until the cruel men holding them captive have been torn down and defeated by the power of God. God is always happy to deliver but how do you help someone who is in denial?
Some people think that because Jesus has delivered them by His sacrifice, they do not need to wait upon the Lord or seek His face. Error! His face is His power. If you do not acknowledge that you need His power or seek His power and if you do not ask God to manifest His power and deliverance which Jesus purchased for us, you are seen by God as proud. You are seen as proud because you are unknowingly depending on your own power to save you.
Run into the saving arms of Jesus today. Go to Jesus for the cleansing power in His blood. His blood is his life, glory, mercy and grace. It is His manifest presence and He has made it available when He shed His blood through His death and sacrifice. You must drink His blood and eat His flesh in order to be whole and have abundant life. To drink His blood and eat His flesh is to experience His glory.
Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. John 6:53
Seek the Lord’s face and His glory and watch Him raze down, tear down and defeat the arrogant cruel men and Pharoahs holding you in captivity. We Christians, exist to fight in the place of prayer and if we do not fight we have quit. Our father is a great warrior so we are not supposed to be quitters. He fought, He won and He conquered death, hell and the grave!
God is pleased with those who can fight. He trains our fingers to fight and make war, and He is a man of war. Fight, fight and unveil the glory of God! May God deliver us from the hands of wicked and cruel men. May we fulfill our destinies. May great grace be upon us in Jesus name.
Sometime ago, the Lord spoke to me and spoke these words, “All that matters in life is power. It is power that defeats power and people with less power are always slaves of people with higher power.”
If you search throughout the Bible, you will see that God accomplished everything by His power and people who did exploits and great things did so by the power of God. God had to destroy the gods of Egypt by His power in order to deliver the Israelites. Power must swallow and supersede power.
Nowadays, people confuse biblical terminologies. A lot of people confuse faith with power but that is spiritual foolishness and confusion. Faith is faith and power is power. Jesus, the prophets and the apostles never confused faith with power. This is because they experienced both. They are two separate experiences.
Faith precedes power and is the foundation for power. Without faith, you will not experience the power of God but faith is not a stand alone concept. It works with other variables like prayer, obedience, persistence and worship. Faith should take us somewhere – the presence of God. We go into the presence of God with confidence on our waist. Any faith that you have that limits your ability to wait upon God or does not motivate you to wait upon God, seek His face or power and experience the presence of God is self deception and self dependence. Jesus, the power and glory of God is the face of God that we must seek and pursue daily.
The Bible should always be our example. Great men of the Bible that had faith experienced the power of God. It was not all talk and nothing else. Faith is our mental attitude and belief towards God. Power is the material essence of God – His blood, fragrance, flavor and aura. Jesus is that power of God. Jesus is the glory of God. We must eat Him and drink Him in order to be protected and victorious. Eating Him and drinking Him means experiencing Him. The Israelites ate and drank the cloud – the living rock that went with them and that rock was Christ.
You can see why it is idolatry and spiritual foolishness for people to take bread during mass, water, oil and other physical materials and call it Jesus. I have seen people bless water and call it the blood of Jesus. I have seen people bless oil and call it anointed meaning power. Jesus is the anointed one and He anoints us. Oil can never be anointed. It can be used for anointing in a symbolic form and the prayer of faith will heal the sick. God can never live inside a bottle of oil. Can you take Jesus and cage Him in bottles, bread and mantles? I weep. This hurts the Lord greatly, He has told me that no one can put Him in a box to release Him at will.
That is witchcraft and idolatry and people who think that way about God cage demons and release them at will. Those demons go ahead to rape, steal from and kill others. That is what God revealed to me. Some know it is witchcraft and others do not know that they are practicing witchcraft- they are blind witches. Appalling.
I am not sorry to say that people who engage in these things will go to hell if they do not repent. That is the message I was called to preach. It is better I say it and save souls from destruction instead of being lily livered like some ministers because they fear men and don’t want to offend men. The devil loves men who fear men and do not fear God. Church we need to be very careful.
God is present everywhere but His manifest presence is not present everywhere. It is that manifest presence that is the power we need everyday. We need Jesus everyday. The manifestation of the Spirit is Jesus Christ Himself.
Our spirits – the temple of God must be filled with His glory. His mercies are new everyday so we must renew the glory daily. There are levels and degrees of glory and we are to be transformed from glory to glory.
If the glory and light in us is very small, we will be oppressed, weak and defeated. That is why you see worldly people with demonic powers ruling over some Christians – the princes and princesses of God that should rule and manifest in this world as lights of the world. Until we learn how to seek God’s face and power and be constantly filled with His glory, we will not know the full meaning of sonship and the full statue of Christ.
Power is all that matters in life. Funny enough, the world understands this simple principle but the Church of Jesus Christ is being deceived by naked teachers who know nothing about the power of God and have been hired by the devil to deceive and delude. They deceive believers into mental philosophies that cannot lead us into the very presence of God.
Power only comes by the stubborn faith that remains in the place of prayer, seeking God’s face and waiting upon Him. That was how Jesus our example lived. Faith that talks and talks and does not wait upon God is not faith at all but deception. True faith must believe, obey and wait upon the Lord to seek His face, power and glory.
“But we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” (Acts 6:4 NKJV)
And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people (Acts 6:8 NKJV)
Stephen was full of faith and power. Note that the Bible separates faith and power as two different things. Faith is not power and power is not faith. However there is a link. There is a third component of these variables known as prayer.
Faith is of the soul and it is given by God through the word of God. Power is a spiritual substance which God decorates His vessels of honor with. We put on faith when we go into prayer to seek God’s face and power. Power is released as the ultimate gift from heaven, however, faith and prayer must precede power. There is no short cut to the power of the Holy Spirit. Prayer should be fervent and effectual accompanied by righteousness, persistence and patience.
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16
Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. Luke 18:1
We are to approach God’s throne with faith and confidence in the place of prayer, putting on the complete armor of God. If we are persistent and we do not give up, God will defeat all our enemies and anoint us with the Holy Spirit and power.
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57 NKJV)
Who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us, (2 Corinthians 1:10 NKJV)
God has given us victory by redeeming us, and delivering us from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of God. The same God gives us victory and will give us victory. God is not a God of past tense alone. He is God of past, present and future. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.
The same Jesus that saved us with His blood is waiting for you to call upon His mighty name. At the mention of His name every knee must bow. He is the high priest that meets our needs, and our God will supply all our needs according to His riches in glory.
Do not relegate God to the past alone. Go into the throne of grace where there is help with faith, worship and thanksgiving and the God of all grace will meet your needs, as you present your petitions to Him. He is a God that answers prayers and our prayers go up like incense before Him.
The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of God’s people, went up before God from the angel’s hand. Revelation 8:4
He is a God of yesterday, today and tomorrow who gives. He is the one that gives us the victory and He will give us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Glory to God, our God reigns with glory and power.
