Pastor Odunayo Ketiku
I welcome my readers to this edition. I pray that this week shall produce for you great things of Joy in Jesus name. I have come to proclaim liberty to someone today. I have some good news for us this week.
1) “31 Now judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out. 32 And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself.” (John 12:31-32, null).
The power and the glory that the devil collected from man in Eden in Genesis chapter 3 has been taken over from him. That is the meaning of Satan being cast out.
He has been de-robed. He has been defeated when Jesus died on the cross. Jesus went to hell and collected the keys from him ” and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades. (Revelation 1:18, null When HE was ascending, HE collected the power for us Matthew 28:18 , Mark 16:15-18. HE collected the power on my behalf and on your behalf. They don’t use power in heaven. Everyone is holy, you need power where there is violence. And if this place is described as a battle field, then you really need power.
Check the scriptures and you will find Resist, Fight, prevail, Overcome, Conquer, Occupy – those are battle terms. You can’t accomplish all those terms without power and that’s why HE collected it for us so we can always walk in victory. The grace for constant victory over the devil, his agent and the flesh is guaranteed. All we are required to do is to fight the fight of faith. Implement your victory through faith
And that brings me to the Second good news
31 So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” 33 They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants and have never yet been enslaved to anyone; how is it that You say, ‘You will become free’?” 34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin. 35 The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son does remain forever. 36 So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:31-36, NASB)
Can you see the key for constant victory. Grace to be undefeatable in the battlefield of life like David is Available in Christ. Lets quickly see John 1-14 – And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14, NASB)Jesus is not only full of grace, He is full of the Truth. He is the Truth Personified. What is the Truth? It is the word of God that is revealed to you. As it is physically the bible is a book. Some people have demonstrated their anger against and tore pages of the bible to wrap Indian hemp and smoked it. But there is the LIFE in it!!!! The mountain moving force is in it. the Life giving Force is in it. The Sickness destroying force is in it. The destiny changing force is in it. You can only get it when you obey verse 31 of John 8. Abiding in God’s word means studying it to the point of having an encounter with the Life that is in it. You must understand it and obeying every Instruction it gives you. And Finally making Obedience to Biblical Instructions your life pattern. Not moving to the right or to the left.
Verse 34 of John 8 is the source of the problem. You can’t be a slave of sin and see God’s favor. How will you be Victorious over the devil if he has his property in your custody? Remember a house divided against itself can not stand. 1John 3:8 “He that committed sin is of the Devil; for the Devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil” You can’t be on both sides at the same time now. And He has even destroyed His work on the cross so that sin will not be in charge anymore Romans 6:14 “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. This the truth
–receive it and be free
I command that yoke that past sin has placed upon your destinydestroyed now.
Whatever is opening you down for the enemy to afflict you is crushed in Jesus Name.
There are some truths that entered me in the place of studying and prayer. Lets run through them by fire.
John 3:31 he who comes from above is above all – I am above sickness and diseases, I am above affliction, I am above oppression, I am above principalities, powers and dominion, I am above poverty, I am above lack, I am above anger, I am above bitterness, I am above unforgiveness, I am above evil conspiracy, I am above the wickedness of the wicked, I am above untimely death, I am above sorrow, I am above pain, I am above grieve, I am above all these. They can’t reach me for – I am seated with Christ in Heavenly places. Whatever can’t get to Christ can’t get to me. Its greater grace for me.
2. Hebrew 1:3 makes me to know that HE upholds all things by the word of His power – By that word I declare that I cannot come down. I can’t be molested, I can’t be ridiculed, i can’t be messed up, I can’t be put in shame. The enemy can’t rejoice over me.
3. John 8:32 I shall know the truth and the truth shall set me free and so I declare that I am free from every evil bondage, my soul is set free from every snare of the wicked. I declare liberty to my soul from every sexual sin – pornography, Adultery, Fornication, lust, lying. My eyes are closed against every lust of the eyes. My organs are consecrated and dedicated to God. My body is offered to God as a living sacrifice. I declare freedom from every sin that easily besets me. I decree by fire I am no longer a slave to sin. The power of sin is broken over my life. I will live in purity and honesty. Let God arise and let every wall that sin has moulded in my life crumble now.
Peradventure you have not given your life to Christ, it Can’t work. Please ask Him into your life Now and be set free by His Power.There is no two way to it. His Name is the Only one given for Salvation. HE is God. Join us this Sunday for a life transforming, power impacting service@ 9am. We maintain Social distancing and follow the rules. You can’t regret it in Jesus name in Him Odunayo Ketiku
