THE ART OF INTERCESSION OR HOW TO BE AN INTECESSOR

  • • IT IS TIME TO PRAY FOR REVIVAL   HABAKKUK 3:1-2
  • ANY TIME WE SENSE THE NEED FOR REVIVAL ,THERE MUST NECESSARILY BE FASTING REPENTANCE AND PRAYER
  • EVEN IF YOU ARE THE ONE CALLED TO PRAY FOR REVIVAL IN THE LAND OR IN THE CHURCH,YOU MUST START BY REPENTING FROM YOUR PERSONAL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS
  • YOU TOO MUST HUMBLE YOURSELF AND REPENT,FIRST ON YOUR BEHALF AND THEN ON BEHALF OF OTHERS
  • THIS IS TO AVOID PRIDE BECAUSE WE ARE NOT ALLOWED  TO JUDGE  OTHERS  GAL 5:1-5
  •   Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.  Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.  For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.  But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.  For every man shall bear his own burden.
  • JESUS WARNS US ABOUT JUDGING OTHERS  MATT 7:1-5
  • Judge not, that ye be not judged.  For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?  Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?  Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
  • HABAKUK STARTTED BY COMPLAINING TO GOD THAT GOD WAS NOT ANSWERING HIS PRAYERS  FOR THE SALVATION OF OTHERS  HABAKUK 1:1-4:“The burden which Habakkuk the prophet did see.O LORD, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear! even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save!  Why dost thou shew me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and contention.  Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.
  • THEN GOD RESPONDED IN VERSE 5
    •   Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you,
  • GOD IN HIS REPLY TO HABBAKKUK, CONTINUED TO EXPRESS HIS ANGER AT THE UNBELIEVERS AND  THE BACKSLIDING OF HIS OWN  PEOPLE
  • AND THEN  HE SHOWED HABBAKKUK A FINAL VISION OF JUDGEMENTAND THE ANGER OF GOD
  • BY THE TIME GOD EXPLAINED TO HABBAKUK THAT HE WOULD ANSWER HIM WITH JUDGEMENT AND DESTRUCTION ,HABBAKUK GOT THE SHOCK OF HIS LIFE
  • EVERY INTERCESSOR NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND THAT  WHEN GOD COMES DOWN BOTH THE RIGHTEOUS AND THE WICKED WILL FEEL THE HEAT OF HIS ANGER
  • THIS IS WHY WE NEED TO ALWAYS HUMBLE OURSELVES  IN TRUE REPENTANCE AND AVOID JUDGING OTHERS
  • GOD’S RESPONSE HUMBLED HABBAKUK AND DELIVERED HIM FROM HIS SELF -RIGHTEOUSNES
  • HABAKKUK WAS SO HUMBLED THAT HE PLEADED FOR DIVINE MERCY FOR ALL INCLUDING HIMSELF
  •   HABBAKUK 1:1-2;12-19
  • A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet upon Shigionoth.  O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy…….. – Thou didst march through the land in indignation, thou didst thresh the heathen in anger.  Thou wentest forth for the salvation of thy people, even for salvation with thine anointed; thou woundedst the head out of the house of the wicked, by discovering the foundation unto the neck. Selah.Thou didst strike through with his staves the head of his villages: they came out as a whirlwind to scatter me: their rejoicing was as to devour the poor secretly.  Thou didst walk through the sea with thine horses, through the heap of great waters.When I heard, my belly trembled; my lips quivered at the voice: rottenness entered into my bones, and I trembled in myself, that I might rest in the day of trouble: when he cometh up unto the people, he will invade them with his troops.  Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls:  Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.  The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.
  • JAMES 5:16 SAYS:
  • “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.”
  • ALMOST EVERY CHRISTIAN KNOWS THIS FAMOUS SCRIPTURE ON THE POWER OF PRAYER
  • THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT THE  PRAYER  OF THE RIGHTEOUS HAS GREAT EFFECTS
  • WHAT DOES THE TERM “AVAILETH MUCH” MEAN?
  • “TO AVAIL MUCH” MEANS:
  • TO SUCCEED
  • TO PREVAIL
  • TO OVERCOME
  • TO BE ABLE TO DO SOMETHING
  • TO BE STRONG AGAINST AN OPPOSING FORCE
  • TO BE HELPFUL
  • TO MAKE AN IMPACT
  • TO STRIKE AN IMPRESSION
  • TO BE EFFECTIVE
  • TO ACCOMPLISH MUCH
  • THE AMPLIFIED VERSION SAYS “THE PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN – MAKES TREMENDOUS POWER AVAILABLE – DYNAMIC IN ITS WORKING  JAMES 5:16
  • ANOTHER TRANSLATION SAYS AN UPRIGHT MAN’S PRAYER,  IS VERY POWERFUL)
  • SO IF YOU AND I ARE PRAYING AND NOTHING IS CHANGING MAYBE WE NEED TO EXAMINE OUR OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • MAY BE LIKE HABAKUK WE NEED TO ALSO REPENT ALONG WITH THE PEOPLE WE ARE PRAYING FOR
  • THE PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN – MAKES TREMENDOUS POWER AVAILABLE – DYNAMIC IN ITS WORKING SAYS THE AMPLIFIED BIBLE
  • INTERCESSORS ARE PEOPLE WHO OPERATE IN INNER PEACE AND ABSOLUTE RIGHTEOUSNESS AND FAITH IN GOD
  • GOD SPOKE SERIOUSLY TO US ON WEDNESDAY THROUGH PS 37

Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.  For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.  Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.  And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.  Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.

  • THIS IS HOW TO BE AN INTERCESSOR,BE STILL AND KNOW THAT AM THE LORD
  • IF YOU ARE AN INTERCESSOR AND YOU LACK HUMILITY,INNER PEACE  AND THE LOVE OF GOD
  • IF YOU ARE JUDGING AND CONDEMING OTHERS YOU ARE NOT RIGHTEOUS AND SO WILL GET NO RESULTS
  • JAMES 4:6-12
  • But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded  Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.  Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. ¶  Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.  There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?
  • A HUMBLE PRAYER LIFE  IS THE FOUNDATION FOR EVERY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD ALMIGHTY
  • FAITH AND LOVE ARE THE BASIS FOR YOUR FELLOWHIP WITH THE LORD
  • THEREFORE IF YOU WANT TO BE EFFECTIVE IN PRAYER  YOU MUST  HUMBLE YOURSELF AND REPENT
  • YOU MUST   ALWAYS APPROACH HIS THRONE  OF GRACE  WITH TRUST, HUMILITY,LOVE AND MERCY
  • FOR GOD RESISITS THE PROUD BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE
  • ANY ONE  WHO DISCOVERS THIS REALITY WILL HAVE A GREAT AND FRUITFUL CHRISTIAN LIFE
  • WHY SHOULD  I EVEN CLEANSE MYSELF AND BE PRAYERFUL
  • 1 ) PRAYER IS A GREAT ACT OF FAITH
  • YOUR ABILITY  TO APPROACH GOD IN HUMILTY AND LOVE ALSO SHOWS THAT YOU ARE A MAN OR WOMAN OF  GREAT FAITH
  • PRAYER IS ACTUALLY ONE OF THE GREATEST ACTS OF FAITH
  • UNFORTUNATELY  MANY  CHRISTIANS THINK THAT HUMBLE PERSISTENT   PRAYING IS DIFFERENT FROM EXCERSING FAITH
  • BUT JESUS DOES NOT SAY SO,THAT TEACHING IS COMING FROM THE PIT OF HELL
  • ACCORDING TO OUR LORD  A HUMBLE.PERSISTENT PRAYER LIFE IS  THE ABSOLUTE  SIGN THAT YOUR  FAITH IS ONLY  IN THE ARM OF GOD  LUKE 18:1-8
  • “AND HE SPAKE A PARABLE UNTO THEM TO THIS END, THAT MEN OUGHT ALWAYS TO PRAY, AND NOT TO FAINT;SAYING, THERE WAS IN A CITY A JUDGE, WHICH FEARED NOT GOD, NEITHER REGARDED MAN:AND THERE WAS A WIDOW IN THAT CITY; AND SHE CAME UNTO HIM, SAYING, AVENGE ME OF MINE ADVERSARY.AND HE WOULD NOT FOR A WHILE: BUT AFTERWARD HE SAID WITHIN HIMSELF, THOUGH I FEAR NOT GOD, NOR REGARD MAN;YET BECAUSE THIS WIDOW TROUBLETH ME, I WILL AVENGE HER, LEST BY HER CONTINUAL COMING SHE WEARY ME.AND THE LORD SAID, HEAR WHAT THE UNJUST JUDGE SAITH.AND SHALL NOT GOD AVENGE HIS OWN ELECT, WHICH CRY DAY AND NIGHT UNTO HIM, THOUGH HE BEAR LONG WITH THEM?I TELL YOU THAT HE WILL AVENGE THEM SPEEDILY. NEVERTHELESS WHEN THE SON OF MAN COMETH, SHALL HE FIND FAITH ON THE EARTH?”
  • AFTER THIS GREAT LESSON ON PRAYER, JESUS ASKED AN IMPORTANT QUESTION
  • WILL I FIND FAITH ON EARTH?” HE WAS ASKING:
  • WILL I FIND PEOPLE ON EARTH WHO REALLY LOVE TO  PRAY  WITHOUT CEASING?
  • IN OTHER WORDS, JESUS WONDERED WHETHER HE WOULD FIND THIS PRAYERFUL  WOMAN’S SERIOUS  EXPRESSION OF FAITH  WHEN HE RETURNED TO THE EARTH
  • JESUS CLEARLY TELLS US HERE THAT PRAYER IS AN EXPRESSION OF FAITH
  • MAY HE FIND YOU AND I  IN FAITH OR IN PRAYER WHENEVER HE COMES FOR US IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME
  • DON’T YOU WANT THE LORD TO CALL YOU  A GREAT MAN OR WOMAN  OF FAITH?
  • A MAN OR WOMAN OF GREAT FAITH IS A MAN OR WOMAN  OF GREAT PRAYER LIFE AND  EXPLOITS
  • BECOME A GREAT MAN OR WOMAN  OF FAITH BY BECOMING A MAN OR WOMAN OF CONSTANT  PRAYER
  • PRAYER IS ONE OF THE GREATEST EXPRESSIONS OF FAITH IN GOD  HEBREWS 11:6
  • “BUT WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM: FOR HE THAT COMETH TO GOD MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, AND THAT HE IS A REWARDER OF THEM THAT DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM”
  • YOU CANNOT PLEASE GOD WITHOUT FAITH
  • THAT MEANS YOU CANNOT PLEASE GOD AS A CHRISTIAN WITHOUT A POWERFUL PRAYER LIFE
  • DON’T  JUST TRY TO  PLEASE GOD BY BEING AN ADMINISTRATOR, AN  ACCOUNTANT OR COMPUTER WIZARD
  • DON’T  JUST TRY TO  PLEASE GOD BY BEING A PASTOR,AN ELDER,A BISHOP A GOOD SINGER IN THE CHOIR OR A SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER
  • DON’T  JUST TRY TO  PLEASE GOD BY BEING A FAITHFUL USHER OR TITHER OR THE BEST BIBLE TEACHER
  • ALL THOSE GOOD WORKS ARE USEFUL TO THE KINGDOM  AND HELP US TO BE IN GOOD STANDING WITH GOD
  • HOWEVER ,WE  PLEASE GOD MUCH BETTER   BY  DEMONSTRATING FAITH IN HIM THROUGH  PRAYING WITHOUT CEASING
  •   WE NEED TO  REALISE THAT PRAYER DEMONSTRATES AND RELEASES FAITH
  • WHENEVER YOU PRAY, YOU ARE DECLARING THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE FAITH IN THE ARM OF FLESH
  • SATAN OF COURSE DOES NOT WANT YOU TO PRAY EFFECTIVELY
  • HAVE YOU NOT NOTICED THAT EVERY TIME YOU BEGIN TO PRAY, ONE HUNDRED DIFFERENT “THINGS TO DO” COME TO YOUR MIND?
  • SOMETHING TELLS YOU TO MAKE A CALL, SOMETHING SAYS TO YOU, ‘GET UP AND GO TO THE TOILET’
  • THAT “SOMETHING “ IS THE ANTI-PRAYER DEMON THAT SATAN SENDS AGAINST YOUR PRAYER LIFE
  • EPHE 6:10-18  DESCRIBES HOW WE SHOULD BE DRESSED IN THE SPIRIT
  • “Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;  And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
  • BRETHREN IF YOU HAVE ALL THE OTHER PIECES OF CHRISTIAN ARMOUR  LIKE TRUTH,FAITH,SWORD OF THE SPIRIT,PREACHING THE GOSPEL OF PEACE IN PLACE
  • INCLUDING THE BREATSPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNES  WHICH 1 THESS 5 :8 DESCRIBES AS FAITH AND LOVE
  • AND YOU NEGLECT THE LAST PIECE WHICH IS “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; “
  • YOU WILL NOT HAVE  REAL SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY
  • PRAYING CONSITENTLY  WITH PERSEVEREANCE AND HUMILITY   FOR ALL THE SAINTS WILL ACTUALLY PUT ALL YOUR OTHER PIECES OF ARMOUR IN PLACE

2) PRAYER WILL  MAKE YOU INTO A MAN OR WOMAN  OF  AUTHORITY

  • “AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN JESUS HAD ENDED THESE SAYINGS, THE PEOPLE WERE ASTONISHED AT HIS DOCTRINE:FOR HE TAUGHT THEM AS ONE HAVING AUTHORITY, AND NOT AS THE SCRIBES. MATHEW 7:28-29
  • YOU WILL NOTICE THAT JESUS WAS A MAN OF SERIOUS PRAYER  MARK  I :35
  • And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.
  • LUKE 6:12  And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
  • AUTHORITY EMANATES FROM YOUR CLOSENESS TO GOD,THE CLOSER YOU ARE, TO HIM THE MORE AUTHORITY YOU HAVE
  • THE MORE YOU PRAY THE CLOSER YOU ARE TO GOD
  • IF YOU ARE CLOSE TO GOD IT MEANS YOU HAVE MORE AUTHORITY WITH GOD AND WITH MAN
  • AS YOU PRAY PEOPLE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO EXPLAIN THAT INVISIBLE MAGNETIC AURA THAT SURROUNDS YOU
  • THE DISCIPLES NOTICED THAT JESUS HAD SO MUCH AUTHORITY WITH GOD THE FATHER
  • HE HAD SO MUCH CONFIDENCE IN HIM THAT  THEY TOLD HIM ONE DAY “TEACH US TO PRAY” Luke 11:1
  • And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.
  • HOW  DID JESUS BECOME A MAN OF AUTHORITY?
  • JESUS WAS NOT INTRODUCED TO THIS WORLD BY ANYONE
  • HE WAS NOT APPOINTED AS A TEACHER BY ANYONE
  • IN FACT, HIS BACKGROUND WAS QUESTIONED  BY MANY
  • MANY HAD RESERVATIONS ABOUT HIS PARENTAGE
  • BUT JESUS KNEW THE SECRET OF HAVING AUTHORITY WITH MAN
  • HE WENT INTO THE WILDERNESS AND WAITED ON GOD
  • “AND JESUS RETURNED IN THE POWER OF THE SPIRIT INTO GALILEE: AND THERE WENT OUT A FAME OF HIM THROUGH ALL THE REGION ROUND ABOUT. LUKE 4:14
  • JESUS HAD BECOME A MAN OF AUTHORITY,A MAN OF INFLUENCE AND POWER
  • HE HAD NEW , MIRACULOUS POWER, ABILITY, ABUNDANCE, STRENGTHS,
  • VIOLENCE, MIGHT  WONDERFUL  WORK AND INNER PEACE
  • THIS NEW INVISIBLE MAGNETIC POWER AROUND JESUS WAS DERIVED FROM PRAYER
  • THE RESPONSE TO HIS FIRST SERMON IN NAZARETH WAS AMAZING
  • “AND ALL BARE HIM WITNESS, AND WONDERED AT THE GRACIOUS WORDS WHICH PROCEEDED OUT OF HIS MOUTH.” LUKE 4:22
  • JESUS HAD EQUALLY GREAT RESULTS IN CAPERNAUM, PEOPLE WERE SIMPLY AMAZED WITH HIS PREACHING AND MINISTRY
  • “AND CAME DOWN TO CAPERNAUM, A CITY OF GALILEE, AND TAUGHT THEM ON THE SABBATH DAYS.AND THEY WERE ASTONISHED AT HIS DOCTRINE: FOR HIS WORD WAS WITH POWER.LUKE 4:31,32
  • WHERE DO YOU THINK THIS AUTHORITY AND SUCCESS CAME FROM?
  • WHERE DID ALL THESE CROWDS COME FROM?
  • WHY WERE PEOPLE SUDDENLY LISTENING TO THIS THIRTY-YEAR OLD MAN?
  • OF COURSE HE HAD ENEMIES,WHO WERE DECEIVED BY SATAN NOT TO FOLLOW OR LISTEN TO HIM
  • CHURCH LONG AFTER HIS ENEMIES WERE GONE ,HIS AUTHORITY IS STILL HERE
  • MYLES MONROE SAID JESUS WAS THE ONLY MAN THAT STARTED A COMPANY  WITH JUST 12 MEN MORE THAN 2000 YEARS AGO
  • AND LONG AFTER HIS DEATH THAT COMPANY  IS STILL ALIVE AND THRIVING
  • IT  KEEPS MULTIPLYING AND GROWING IN POWER AND AUTHORITY
  • PERHAPS YOU DON’T HAVE ANYONE TO REFERENCE YOU IN THIS WORLD
  • JUST BECOME A MAN OE WOMAN OF PRAYER
  • LIKE JESUS, YOU CAN BECOME, A MAN OF AUTHORITY AND RECEIVE RECOGNITION IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH LONG AFTER YOU ARE GONE
  • HUMBLE PERSISTENT PRAYER MAKES YOU A MAN  OR WOMAN OF ANOINTING
  • WHEN YOU ARE CLOSE TO SOMEONE, SOMETHING RUBS OFF ON YOU
  • WHENEVER YOU SPEND TIME IN PRAYER, YOU ARE SPENDING TIME TALKING TO GOD
  • THE MORE YOU TALK TO SOMEONE, THE CLOSER YOU BECOME TO THE PERSON
  • THE CLOSER YOU ARE TO SOMEONE, THE MORE THINGS RUB OFF ON YOU
  • DO YOU WANT SOME OF GOD’S GLORY TO BE ON YOU?
  • DO YOU WANT HIS PRESENCE AND ANOINTING TO BE ON YOUR LIFE?
  • WE ALL WANT DIVINE PRESENCE AND MANY BLESSINGS  IN OUR LIVES,
  • WE ALL LOVE TO SEE VISIONS AND DREAMS FROM HEAVEN
  • WE ALL WANT AND NEED THAT BEAUTIFUL PEACE FROM GOD
  • I WISH I COULD OFFER YOU AN EASIER WAY BUT ONLY PRAYER WILL BRING YOU CLOSER TO GOD
  • THE EXAMPLES OF MOSES TELLS IT ALL. MOSES WENT INTO THE MOUNTAIN AND STAYED IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD FOR A LONG TIME
  • “AND MOSES WENT INTO THE MIDST OF THE CLOUD, AND GAT HIM UP INTO THE MOUNT: AND MOSES WAS IN THE MOUNT FORTY DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS.” EXODUS 24:18
  • AFTER BEING SO LONG ON THE MOUNTAIN, THE GLORY OF THE LORD WAS EVIDENT ON HIM
  • DEAR BRETHREN,PASTORS,ELDERS,DEACONS ,CHOIR , AND USHERS
  • THIS IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO YOU WHEN YOU SPEND HOURS WITH THE LORD
  • THERE WILL BE GLORY ON YOUR LIFE AND MINISTRY
  • WHEN YOU SING IN THE CHOIR GOD’S PRESENCE WILL FILL THE HOUSE
  • WHEN YOU SHAKE PEOPLE AS AN URSHER THEY WILL BE HEALED AND BLESSED
  • THE CHILDREN YOU TEACH IN SUNDAY SCHOOL WILL REFLECT GOD’S GLORY
  • SHARE THE VIDEO OF A PRAYING 4 YEAR OLD
  • 4)PRAY WITHOUT CEASING BECAUSE PRAYER BINDS DEMONIC ACTIVITIES IN YOUR LIFE AND FAMILY
  • DEAR BRTHREN THE CHRISTIAN LIFE IS NOT A PARTY LIFE,IT IS VERY MILITANT
  • YOU EITHER PRAY OR PERISH FROM THE HAND OF THE WICKED
  • YOU MUST PRAY FOR YOURSELF,YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR  CHURCH ALL THE TIME
  • WE ARE TOLD TO PRAY WITHOUT CEASING
  • WE  NEED TO BIND THE DEVIL FOR SEVERAL IMPORTANT REASONS:
  • WE MUST BIND HIS ACTIVITY THAT CAUSES DIVISIONS AND DISLOYALTY AMONGST CHURCH  MEMBERS AND LEADERS
  • WE MUST BIND HIS INFLUENCE THAT CAUSES BACKSLIDING, IMMORALITY AND SIN IN  THE CHURCH
  • WE MUST BIND THE DEMONS THAT CAUSE POVERTY, DEPRESSION AND OPPRESSION IN YOUR FAMILY AND IN THE CHURCH
  • WE MUST BIND THE SPIRITS THAT RAISE ACCUSATIONS AND SLANDER AGAINST THE CHURCH AND THE BRETHREN
  • YOU MUST PRAY FOR SINNERS TO BE SAVED AND JOIN THE CHURCH
  • WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT, SATAN ALWAYS  ASSIGNS DEMONS TO ATTACK AND DESTROY  YOU,YOUR FAMILY AND THECHURCH OF GOD
  • IF YOU DO NOT CONSTANTLY BIND THE DEVIL HE WILL BIND YOU
  • YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO FUNCTION AND ENJOY YOUR CHRISTIAN LIFE
  • NO ONE WILL REALLY ENJOY PEACE AND JOY IN THE FAMILY OR EVEN IN CHURCH  IF YOU DON’T BIND HIM CONSTANTLY
  • THERE WILL BE A COMPLEX NETWORK OF STORIES, ACCUSATION, SLANDER, AND DISCUSSIONS THAT CONSTANTLY DIVIDE THE CHURCH
  • PLEASE DON’T JOIN THE TEAM OF ACCUSERS OF THE BRETHREN,DON’T LET SATAN EMPLOY YOU
  • RISE UP TODAY AND BIND SATAN AND DEMONS IN YOUR FAMILY AND IN THE CHURCH
  • 5) PRAY BECAUSE PRAYER  WILL ALWAYS CREATE AND GIVES BIRTH TO NEW DIMENSIONS IN YOUR CHRISTIAN  EXPERIENCE
  • “….FOR AS SOON AS ZION TRAVAILED, SHE BROUGHT FORTH HER CHILDREN.” ISAIAH 66:8
  • A VERY IMPORTANT REVELATION ABOUT PRAYER IS THE FACT THAT PRAYER HAS A CREATIVE POTENTIAL
  • IF YOU ARE STARTING OUT IN MINISTRY, IF YOU NEED A NEW JOB,MARRIAGE A NEW EXPERIENCE IN LIFE
  • YOU WILL NEED TO PRAY UNTIL SOMETHING THAT DOESN’T EXIST COMES INTO EXISTENCE
  • CREATING SOMETHING IS DIFFERENT FROM MAINTAINING IT
  • MANY PEOPLE CAN MAINTAIN WHAT HAS BEEN CREATED BUT IT TAKES A MAN OF PRAYER TO CREATE A NEW THING AND KEEP IT SUSTAINED
  • AS A LONG TERM SERVANT OF GOD I HAVE LEARNT THAT FORMING COMMITTEES, ORGANISING MEETINGS  HAVING BIBLE STUDIES AND SHOWING LOVE  ARE ALL GOOD
  • BUT THEY DO NOT CREATE NEW  DIMENSIONS,LIKE PRAYERS WILL DO
  • I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN ESTABLISHING NEW CHURCHES, FELLOWSHIPS AND MINISTRIES FOR MANY YEARS
  • FROM MY EXPERIENCE I CAN GIVE YOU A LITTLE SUGGESTION  FOR A SUCCSSFUL AND PEACEFUL LIFE
  • THE FIRST SUGGESTION IS PRAY, THE SECOND SUGGESTION IS ALSO TO PRAY, AND THE THIRD IS TO PRAY
  • I EXHORT THEREFORE, THAT, FIRST OF ALL, SUPPLICATIONS, PRAYERS, INTERCESSIONS, AND GIVING OF THANKS, BE MADE FOR ALL MEN;FOR KINGS, AND FOR ALL THAT ARE IN AUTHORITY; THAT WE MAY LEAD A QUIET AND PEACEABLE LIFE IN ALL GODLINESS AND HONESTY.FOR THIS IS GOOD AND ACCEPTABLE IN THE SIGHT OF GOD OUR SAVIOUR;” 1 TIMOTHY 2:1-3
  • A MINISTER  OR ANY CHILD OF GOD HAS MANY THINGS TO DO, BUT FIRST OF ALL YOU MUST PRAY!
  • YOU MUST SEE YOURSELF AS AN INTERCESSOR OR A PRAYER WARRIOR BEFORE YOU CALL YOURSELF ANYTHING ELSE IN THE HOUSE OF GOD
  • MY GREATEST DUTY IS TO BE ABLE TO BALANCE THE NEED TO LOOK AFTER THE CHURCHES AS WELL AS MY FAMILY 
  • IT IS NOT ALWAYS EASY TO VISIT ALL THE BRANCHES OR MY FAMILY MEMBERS ALL THE TIME
  • BUT I KNOW I CAN ALWAYS PRAY FOR EVERY ONE NO MATTER THE DISTANCE
  • IF YOU WANT TO PRESERVE YOUR FAMILY,LIFE, JOB OR EVEN YOUR CALLING YOU MUST LOVE TO PRAY
  • WHY DO WE FIND USHERS AND CHOIR MEMBERS WHO ARE NOT ALWAYS FAITHFUL?
  • THEY ARE ALWAYS WEARY AND SITTING DOWN  LOOKING WEARY  THE ANSWER IS PRAYERLESSNESS.
  • DON’ T EVER THINK YOU CAN SERVE GOD ACCEPTABLY AND CONSISTENTLY WITHOUT A FIRY PRAYER LIFE
  • YOU MUST ALWAYS  PRAY FOR YOURSELF AND REDEDICATE YOURSELF TO YOUR WORK IN GOD’S HOUSE  ALL THE TIME
  • PRAYERFULNESS IS THE SECRET OF MY COMMITMENT , HARD LABOUR ,PEACE  JOY AND BLESSINGS
  • I PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING I SEE, HEAR, OR DO
  • I SEE A LOT, I HEAR A LOT FROM GOD AND MAN,AND TRUST ME I PRAY A LOT TOO
  • WHY SO PRAYERFUL AND COMMITTED? 1 COR 3:13-15 AND JER 48:10 AND 1KINGS 20:39-40
  • 2KINGS 13:19
  • OUR GREATEST NEED AS CHILDREN OF GOD  IS TO SPEND HOURS IN PRAYER
  • LET US NOT SUCCUMB TO THE PRESSURE THAT WANTS US TO NEGLECT OUR GREAT RESPONSIBILITY OF INTERCESSION AND SPIRITUAL WARFARE
  • IF WE NEGLECT PRAYER, WHO WILL DO IT?
  • MEDICALLY SPEAKING, A PERSON IS ALIVE WHEN HIS HEART BEATS AND THE BLOOD FLOWS THROUGH THE BODY
  • A PERSON IS ALSO DECLARED TO BE ALIVE WHEN THE DOCTOR CAN HEAR AIR BLOWING THROUGH THE LUNGS
  • SPIRITUALLY SPEAKING, WHEN THE BLOOD OF JESUS IS FLOWING THROUGH YOU  AND YOU ARE ACTIVE FOR THE LORD  AND PEOPLE ARE BEING SAVED
  • WE CAN SAY THAT YOU ARE ALIVE,
  • WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT IS BLOWING THROUGH YOU AND YOU ARE CONSTANTLY SPIRIT FILLED AND ACTIVELY SERVING THE LORD,  WE CAN ALSO SAY THAT YOU ARE ALIVE
  • DO YOU WANT YOUR SPIRIT  TO DIE?
  • DO YOU  WANT  TO BE CLASSFIED AS A SPIRITUALLY  DEAD PERSON OR A GOAT THAT CAN NO LONGER HEAR THE LORD?
  • I HOPE NOT! REVELATION 3:1?:
  • “AND UNTO THE ANGEL OF THE CHURCH IN SARDIS WRITE; THESE THINGS SAITH HE THAT HATH THE SEVEN SPIRITS OF GOD, AND THE SEVEN STARS; I KNOW THY WORKS, THAT THOU HAST A NAME THAT THOU LIVEST, AND ART DEAD.”
  • DO NOT TAKE THE SUBJECT OF PRAYER LIGHTLY! PRAYER IS YOUR  LIFELINE AS A CHRISTIAN
  • IT IS THE LIFELINE TO YOUR FAMILY AND CALLING
  •   THAT IS WHY THE APOSTLES DID NOT GIVE UP THE MINISTRY OF PRAYER EVEN WHEN THEY WERE UNDER PRESSURE

6) PRAY BECAUSE PRAYER WAS THE GREATEST PART OF CHRIST’S MINISTRY

  • JESUS PREACHED AND TAUGHT FOR THREE AND HALF YEARS
  • SINCE THEN, HE HAS BEEN INTERCEEDING FOR US
  • THREE AND A HALF YEARS OF TEACHING COMPARED TO TWO THOUSAND YEARS OF PRAYER!
  • MOST CHRISTIANS HAVE MORE THAN TEN UNITS COMPLAINING AND WORRYING  TO ONE UNIT OF PRAYER
  • PERHAPS YOU DIDN’T KNOW THAT JESUS IS STILL CARRYING OUT HIS MINISTRY TOWARDS US
  • THE BIBLE TEACHES VERY CLEARLY THAT JESUS IS OUR SHEPHERD AND THAT HE CARES FOR US
  • HE KEEPS SENDING MESSAGES, GIFTS AND BLESSINGS TO US THROUGH HIS PRAYERS
  • “WHEREFORE HE IS ABLE ALSO TO SAVE THEM TO THE UTTERMOST THAT COME UNTO GOD BY HIM, SEEING HE EVER LIVETH TO MAKE INTERCESSION FOR THEM.” HEBREWS 7:25
  • “…WHO IS HE THAT CONDEMNETH? IT IS CHRIST THAT DIED, YEA RATHER, THAT IS RISEN AGAIN, WHO IS EVEN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD, WHO ALSO MAKETH INTERCESSION FOR US.” ROMANS 8:34
  • JESUS IS ALIVE! HE IS ABLE TO SAVE US TO THE UTTERMOST
  • IN OTHER WORDS, HE IS RESCUING US FROM EVERY EXTREME AND DISTRESSING SITUATION RIGHT THERE FROM HEAVEN THROUGH CONSTANT PRAYERS
  • DO YOU WANT TO BE NUMBERED THE GREAT AND STRONG IN GOD’S ARMY?
  • MOVE AWAY FROM DEBATES, ARGUMENTS AND ENDLESS DISCUSSIONS. BECOME AN INTERCESSOR TODAY
  • 7 )  BE PRAYERFUL  BECAUSE PRAYER RELEASES CAPTIVES
  • IF YOUR EYES WERE OPENED SPIRITUALLY YOU WOULD SUDDENLY SEE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE IN SPIRITUAL CAPTIVITY
  • THEY ARE CAPTIVE TO DEMON POWERS THAT ARE LOOSE ON THIS EARTH “…..TO PREACH DELIVERANCE TO THE CAPTIVES,” LUKE 4:18
  • OUR DUTY AS PEOPLE OF GOD  IS TO WEAKEN THE GRIP OF THESE DEMONIC POWERS OVER THE SOULS ON THIS EARTH
  • JESUS ALSO TEACHES US THAT OUR GREATEST WEAPONS ARE FASTING AND PRAYER
  • And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.” Mark 9:29
  • MANY DON’T EVEN THINK OF FASTING  AT THE BEGINNING OF EACH MONT
  • NOTHING HAPPENS, WHEN THERE IS NO PRAYER AND FASTING
  • BUT  A LOT HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE FAST AND   PRAY IN RIGHTEOUNESS! ISAIAH 58
  • THAT IS WHY THE DEVIL IS DOING EVERYTHING TO PREVENT YOU FROM  FASTING AND PRAYING
  • EVERY CHILD OF GOD MUST  MUST BE CAREFUL NOT TO  OPERATE IN THE NATURAL
  • THE BIBLE HAS WARNED US THAT WE HAVE NO WEAPONS IN THAT REALM
  • “(FOR THE WEAPONS OF OUR WARFARE ARE NOT CARNAL, BUT MIGHTY THROUGH GOD TO THE PULLING DOWN OF STRONG HOLDS;) 2 COR. 10:4
  • BECAUSE THE DEVIL KNOWS THAT WE ARE DISARMED IN THE NATURAL WORLD HE TRIES TO KEEP US OCCUPIED IN HUMAN, SECULAR AND NATURAL THINGS
  • MAY THE LORD OPEN YOUR EYES TO UNDERSTAND THIS REVELATION OF  FASTING AND PRAYER
  • FINALLY IN ORDER TO DEFEAT OUR ENEMY, WE MUST KNOW AS MUCH AS WE CAN ABOUT HIM
  • WE ALL KNOW BY NOW THAT OUR PRINCIPAL ENEMY IS SATAN AND NOT OTHER HUMAN BEINGS
  • HE IS THE LEADER OF THE HORDES OF DEMONIC FORCES ON THIS EARTH,
  • SATAN , KNOWS THAT HE IS NO MATCH FOR A HOLY , SPIRIT FILLED  AND PRAYERFUL CHILD  OF GOD
  • HE  KNOWS THAT HE DOES NOT STAND A CHANCE AGAINST THE MIGHT OF THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST
  • BUT HE ALSO KNOWS THAT HE HAS A LEASE ON THE EARTH
  • THANK GOD THAT THIS LEASE WILL EXPIRE  VERY SOON AND THE DEVIL KNOWS IT
  • HE IS  ACTUALLY AWARE OF THE EXPIRY DATE ON HIS LEASE
  • MATHEW 8:29
  • “: AND, BEHOLD, THEY CRIED OUT, SAYING, WHAT HAVE WE TO DO WITH THEE, JESUS, THOU SON OF GOD? ART THOU COME HITHER TO TORMENT US BEFORE THE TIME?”
  • HE  KNOWS  THAT FOR NOW  HE HAS A RIGHT TO BE ON EARTH
  • AS SUCH HE  HAS RESORTED TO THE WARFARE OF LIES AND  DECEPTION, TRICKS AND FANTASTIC SCHEMES TO MAKE YOU OPERATE IN THE FLESH;
  • HE SHOWED JESUS THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD AND OFFERED THEM TO HIM
  • AND THE DEVIL SAID UNTO HIM, ALL THIS POWER WILL I GIVE THEE, AND THE GLORY OF THEM: FOR THAT IS DELIVERED UNTO ME; AND TO WHOMSOEVER I WILL I GIVE IT.” LUKE 4:6
  • JESUS DID NOT TELL THE DEVIL THAT HE WAS LYING
  • HE KNEW THAT THE DEVIL HAD THE POWER TO HAND OVER THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD
  • HE DID NOT ARGUE ABOUT THAT, IF IT WAS NOT SO, JESUS WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN TEMPTED
  • IT IS NOT OUR DUTY TO RID THE EARTH OF SATAN AND HIS DEMONS
  • EVEN JESUS DID NOT TRY TO DO THAT
  • YOU DO NOT TRY TO GET A TENANT OUT OF YOUR HOUSE BEFORE THE LEASE EXPIRES
  • YOU KNOW THAT HE WILL FIGHT YOU IN COURT
  • IN THE MINISTRY OF JESUS, HE RELOCATED DEMONS FROM PEOPLE’S BODIES INTO  PIGS
  • OUR DUTY AS GOD’S PEOPLE  IS TO CONSTANTLY WEAKEN THE GRIP OF DEMONIC POWERS OVER THE SOULS ON THIS EARTH BY PRAYING ALL THE TIME
  • ANYTIME YOU DEFEAT WEAKEN OR DISLODGE THE DEVIL, YOU CAN EXPECT A COUNTER ATTACK
  • WHEN JESUS DEFEATED THE DEVIL IN THE WILDERNESS, THE BIBLE SAYS THAT SATAN RELOCATED FOR A SEASON
  • IF YOU WERE THE DEVIL WOULD YOU LEAVE YOUR ENEMY FOREVER? NO! YOU WOULD RETREAT, REGROUP AND ATTACK AGAIN ANOTHER DAY
  • “AND WHEN THE DEVIL HAD ENDED ALL THE TEMPTATION, HE DEPARTED FROM HIM FOR A SEASON LUKE 4:13
  • THE DEVIL DID NOT LEAVE HIM FOREVER,THAT IS WHY YOU MUST ALWAYS PRAY WITHOUT CEASING MATT 12:43-45
  • ONE OF HIS GREATEST TRICKS IS TO WEAKEN DISCORAGE OR STOP YOUR PRAYER LIFE FOREVER
  • EVEN THOUGH WE CANNOT GET RID OF THE DEVIL PERMANENTLY, WE CAN ENGAGE HIM IN DIFFERENT KINDS OF WARFARE ALL THE TIME
  • WE CAN WRESTLE WITH HIM, EPH 6:12
  • WE CAN CAST HIM OUT OF PEOPLE MARK 5:13
  • WE CAN BIND HIM MATHEW 18:18
  • WE CAN PULL DOWN OR WEAKEN HIS STRONGHOLDS 2 COR 10:4
  • WE CAN FIGHT HIS DECEPTION WITH THE WORD HEB 4:12
  • SATAN’S MAIN STRATEGY IS TO CAPTURE THE WORLD INTO GROUPS OF “STRONGHOLD” WHICH THINK IN A CERTAIN WAY
  • THE DEVIL ‘S STRATEGY IS TO MAKE THE WORLD THINK IN A CERTAIN WAY SO THAT HE CAN LEAD THEM INTO SELF-DESTRUCTION
  • MANY TODAY DON’T BELIEVE IN PRAYERS.MANY COMMUNITIES JUST WANT TO ENGAGE IN ALCOHOLISM,IMMORALITIES DIVORCE LOVE OF MONEY ETC
  • THE GREAT PHILOSOPHIES OF THIS WORLD, HUMANISM, ATHEISM, COMMUNISM AND MARXISM ARE MANIFESTATIONS OF THE IMAGINATIONS OF THE DEVIL
  • IT  IS THESE IMAGINATIONS OR WAYS  OF THINKING THAT LEAD MASSES OF PEOPLE INTO SELF-DESTRUCTION
  • AND HE HAS BROUGHT THESE IDEAS INTO THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST
  • HE DOES NOT WANT YOU TO GROW IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD’S WORD
  • HE DOES NOT WANT YOU TO BE HOLY ,AND PRAYERFUL
  • EVERY CHILD OF GOD MUST UNDERSTAND THE ROLE OF THE WORD IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE
  • WE  MUST ENSURE THAT THE WORD OF GOD GAINS PRE-EMINENCE IN OUR LIVES
  • AS THE WORD OF GOD INCREASES IN YOU , SATAN LOSES HIS GRIP OVER YOUR SOUL
  • READ THIS AMAZING SCRIPTURE AND BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF THE WORD

  • THE APOSTLES PRACTISED THIS! THEY SAID “ BUT WE WILL GIVE OURSELVES.” ACTS 6:2,4
  • CONTINUALLY TO PRAYER, AND TO THE MINISTRY OF THE WORD
  • THEY REFUSED TO BE DRAWN AWAY FROM THE MINISTRY OF THE WORD AND PRAYER
  • : THE BEST EXAMPLE OF SPIRITUAL WARFARE WAS CHRIST
  • HE TAUGHT AND HE PRAYED
  • THE WORD OF GOD ALSO WEAKENS AND TORMENTS SATAN
  • DEMONS  SHOUTED OUT WHENEVER  JESUS TAUGHT THE WORD
  • JESUS DID NOT PRAY OR BIND THE DEVIL, BUT THE DEVIL SAID, “STOP IT! YOU ARE TORMENTING ME! YOU ARE HURTING ME!
  • THE BIBLE DESCRIBES THE WORD OF GOD AS A SWORD
  • ANYTIME YOU ARE SPEAKING WORDS, YOU ARE RELEASING SWORDS INTO THE ATMOSPHERE
  • AT BEST OUR SPIRITUAL WAR CAN DISLODGE, DISPLACE OR TEMPORARILY RELOCATE DEMONIC FORCES SO THAT GOD’S KINGDOM CAN GAIN ASCENDANCY FOR A SEASON.
  • THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT THE DEVIL HAS A RIGHT TO BE AROUND AT LEAST FOR NOW
  • THERE IS NO USE IN TRYING TO CAST THE DEVIL OUT OF THE EARTH
  • SATAN HAS A LEASE PERIOD THAT HE  IS EXPLOITING TO THE FULLEST
  • HE REMINDED JESUS THAT HE HAD A LEASE AND A RIGHT TO BE AROUND
  • HE REMINDED JESUS THAT IT WAS NOT YET TIME FOR THEM TO BE PUT OUT OF THE EARTH
  • “….JESUS, THOU SON OF GOD ART THOU COME HITHER TO TORMENT US BEFORE THE TIME” MATHEW 8:29
  • A TIME WILL COME WHEN SATAN WILL BE PERMANENTLY REMOVED FROM THE EARTH
  • WE WILL NOT HAVE TO DO THAT JOB,IT WILL BE DONE BY A MIGHTY ANGEL FROM HEAVEN
  • FOR NOW OUR DUTY IS JUST TO WEAKEN THE STRONGHOLD  OF THE DEVIL  BY PERSISTENT  FASTING AND PRAYER
  • WHY  DID THE DEVIL SAY “HAVE YOU COME BEFORE THE TIME?
  • THE DEVIL CAN ALSO READ AND WRITE AND HE SEES HIS FUTURE JUDGEMENT IN BLACK AND WHITE
  • WHEN THIS HAPPENS HE WILL NO LONGER HAVE THE POWER TO DECEIVE AND TO DESTROY THE PEOPLE ON THIS EARTH REVELATION 20:1-3
  • “AND I SAW AN ANGEL COME DOWN FROM HEAVEN, HAVING THE KEY OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT AND A GREAT CHAIN IN HIS HAND.
