Prove Your Own Self, by Pastor Samuel Obafaiye

Text: 2 Corinthians 13:5-6

Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.

There is a practice that I have seen in this country, especially with the Council. That at least once a year, an appraisal of one’s work is conducted. It was somehow shocking to me the first time I had to experience it as I was given the opportunity to first score myself before my manager would later review and assessed my scoring. Supposing my score was not objective, it would have been shameful going through it with my manager.

Also, the athletes who compete in championships and Olympics have to subject themselves unto rigorous self-trials before their competition. That is why you see that for some athletes, PB is written in front of their time.

Tests and examinations are phenomena that are familiar to all of us. They are ways of checking what we have learnt and mastered over a period of time. Academically, I know that some students do not like tests and examination; however, there is no way we can demonstrate that we have understood and mastered a taught process, except we are examined somehow.

Fact of life, we can’t live without tests and examinations. As a matter of fact, God is the Originator of test and He will be the Terminator of it. Tests commenced from the Garden of Eden, and it will possibly end at Armageddon.

Sources of tests

From God e.g. Abraham (Gen. 22: 1-2).

From Satan e.g. David (I Chronicles 21:1-4).

From People: (spouse, family, brethren, friends, establishments, society, etc.) e.g. Joshua by the Gibeonites (Jos. 9:3-15).

From Self: e.g. Apostle Paul (I Cor. 9:27; Rom. 8:38-39); Job (Job 23:10-13).

Areas to administer tests

Your salvation (Mt. 7:21; Phil. 2:12).

Your disposition towards the word of God (I Thes. 2:13; Mt. 13:1-9, 18-23).

Your character (Mt. 7:15-18).

Your extent of sacrifice and faithfulness (John 21: 15-17; James 2: 26; Mt. 24:11-13).

Your purpose in life (John 18:37).

As believers, I see it that a crucial examination we must constantly go through is self-examination. This will ensure that we are not caught unaware or unguarded by other tests, and we don’t receive condemnation and punishment.

I Cor. 11:28-33).

There is a danger of falling into grave error if one doesn’t examine himself often.

David fell into serious error – (2 Sam. 11:2-4; 12:1-14).

The five foolish virgins fell into grave error –   (Mt. 25:1-13).

Jesus taught His disciples to practise self-examination

Matthew 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.

Matthew 7:12 – Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them:for this is the law and the prophets.

Matthew 5:20 – For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Method of self-examination

Ask God to reveal yourself to you (Psalm 139:23-24). Psalms 139:23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Align your life and ways with the word of God (James 1:22-25). Doer of the word…, check against life and amend.

Do a scale of preference for your life and consider your priorities (Lk. 6:38 seek ye first; Luke 12:33-34). Lay up treasures, for where your treasure is, there your heart will be.

Compare and contrast your way of life before you confess the lordship of Jesus Christ with what you are now (2 Cor. 5:17).

Zacchaeus was a sinner. But when Jesus met him and he received salvation, the first thing he did was self-examination even Christ has not asked him yet (Lk. 19:1-10).

If we want to be sincere with ourselves, there must be areas of our lives that we might need to make amends after careful and thorough self-examination. It is my prayer that we will not deceive ourselves.

Can a man/woman deceive himself/herself? Yes. Samson was a good example. All his escapade with Delilah was a self-deceit.

Delilah was doing all what he said would let his power leave and also called his enemies on him. Yet he eventually told her his secret. He still thought he could shake himself as aforetime. How possible? He has already failed his examination.

How is your current faith? As a child, as a wife, mother, husband, father, as a child of God and a follower of Christ. Will you say you are more fervent in faith than last year for example? Or have you left your first love? Will you prove yourself? Or are you prepared to deceive yourself? Talk to God right now.

Prayers

Hebrew 4:1 – Let us, therefore, fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.

– Father, let me not come short of your promised rest.

– Father, let me do what it will take me to enjoy your promised rest.

Hebrews 4:9 – There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.

– Father, let me be a partaker of that rest that remains for God’s people.

Hebrews 4:11 – Let us labour, therefore, to enter into that rest, lest any man falls after the same example of unbelief.

– Father, let me not be a victim of unbelief or partial faith.

Power From On High, by Pastor Samuel Obafaiye

There are many things that we contend with as believers: Satan, world order, those who hate and despitefully use us, our flesh, wicked spirits, etc.

One of the most sought-after thing/substance on earth is power. To the extent that even in heaven, where order prevails, the quest for power had become an issue before. Whether at an individual, group, state or national level. We all want power. We all need power.

So how can we rightly obtain power? From God obviously.

What is Power?

Power is an English logical construct that refers to a variety of ideas relating to ability; capacity; authority; might and strength.

The objective of this discourse is for us to know how to live a victorious and not a defeated Christian life, despite the above challenges. We must, however:

  • Hunger and thirst for the power of God;
  • Cherish and place value on this power in our lives;
  • Deploy and put to use the power made available to us.

Luke 24:49 – And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

Mt. 10:16  – Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

Sources of power

  • God (Heaven; On high; Above)
  • Satan (Hell; Below; Beneath)
  • People (Around)
  • Self (Within)

Sources of power – God

Mk 16:16-18 – And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Acts 10:38 – How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

Sources of power – Satan

– He was the Anointed cherub (Isaiah 14: 12-17).

– Used by The witch of Endor (I Sam. 28: 3-19).

Lucifer was able to withstand Angel Gabriel for 21 days (Dan. 10: 1-13).

To understand the power that Satan has, consider the power of one angel – 2 Kings 19:20-35.

Sources of power – People

Saul’s unlawful sacrifice because he relied on the power of the people to protect him (I Sam. 13: 5-14).Saul’s partial obedience, again because he did not want to offend people (I Sam. 15: 10-21, 30).

Some know how to harness the power of the people and thrive in it. Usually, it is that same power that brings them down.

Sources of power – Self

Goliath of Gath (I Sam. 17: 4-11)

The rich fool (Luke 12: 16-21)

Kinds/Spheres of power

Political (Legislature/Executive)

Economical (Global lenders)

Monarchical (Decrees)

Religious (Revere as  a god)

Academic (Bad example – Charles Darwin)

Civil (Police, Enforcement Officers, Judge; Examiners; etc.)

Divine Power further explained

  1. Power is an inherent characteristic of God (I Peter 5: 11).
  2. God delegated this power unto Man at creation (Gen. 1:26-28).
  3. Satan hijacked that power when Man fell in the Garden of Eden (Rom. 6:16).
  4. Jesus as God incarnate exercised Divine power when He came (John 5:26-27; Lk. 4:18-19, 36).
  5. Jesus, in turn, delegated this Divine power to those who believe in Him (Lk. 10:19).
  6. Divine power does manifest in two forms. E.g. Jesus was given:

Exousia – Authority (Mt. 28:18)

Dunamis – Supernatural Ability (Acts 10:38).

For us as believers: (Mk. 16: 16-18; Acts 1:8).

However, Satan still parades himself as if he has power over the believer when he doesn’t.

He seeks to instil fear in us, so as to steal, kill or destroy.

The Believers’ Arsenals

The name of Jesus (Phil. 2:10-11)

The blood of Jesus (Rev 12:11)

The word of God (Mt. 4:4,7,10).

Invoke the Fire of the Holy Spirit (Heb. 12:29; Num. 11:1; 2 Kgs 1: 9-10).

Condition of usage

Ephesian 6:10-18 tells us that we must:

  • Gird our loins with truth;
  • Wear breastplate of righteousness;
  • Put on the shoe of the gospel of peace;
  • Carry the shield of faith ;
  • Wear the helmet of salvation;
  • Hold the sword of Spirit;
  • Praying always with all prayer in the Spirit;
  • Interceding for other saints;
  • Stand firm, therefore.

Can the Divine power work for every believer?

Yes. Though the power is available to every believer; sadly it may not work for everyone. Especially:

  • Those still living in sin. For example, 7 Sons of High Priest (Acts 19:11-17).
  • Those not genuinely born again. E.g Simon the sorcerer (Acts 8: 9-24).
  • The doubtful. The apostles (Mk. 11:21-23).
  • The ignorant. The disciples (John 6: 48-69).
  • The prayerless and non-faster. The apostles (Mt. 17: 14-21).

Biblical examples of those who were endued with power from on high we can emulate

  1. Elijah (James 5: 17-18).
  2. Joshua (Joshua 10:12-14)
  3. Peter (Acts 3: 1-10).
  4. Paul (Acts 13: 4-12).
  5. Contemporary examples: Pastor Adeboye; Rev. Kumuyi; Rev. Madugba; Rev. Lawon; etc.

Caution: I John 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Prayers

Father, demonstrate Your power over me and in me.

Father, demonstrate Your power through me and by me.

Father, help me to use the power You have invested in me.

Father, help me to be a true representative of Your Spirit on earth.

Removing Hell’s Testimony Against Us, by Apostle Isaiah Lawon

Satan’s effort to connect our bloodlines to delays or deny our blessing before God’s throne!!

The Kinds of Prayer:

  1. Personal Prayers and Requests – Luke 11:1-4
  2. Intercessory Prayers (on behalf of others) – Luke 11:5-11
  3. Entering the courts of heaven in God’s Presence – Luke 18:1-8

Distinct realms connected to our blood lines that provide the devil with testimony or evidence against us. These are five:

  1. Rebellion.
  2. Trades,
  3. Covenants,
  4. Dedications
  5. Words.

 

  1. REBELLION

2 CHRON. 16:1-12

2 Chronicles 16:1-12.

We see this in the life of Asa, King of Judah. Asa served God and had good success. The success caused arrogance and pride to come into his life. Asa counted on other nations, rather than God to defend Israel. The prophet came to call Asa to repent and instead of repenting Asa punished the prophet. (2 Chronicles 16:10) Asa became sick. He did not seek the Lord. He continued in his rebellion until he died. Rebellion and stubbornness connect us to demonic things. If people in our bloodline walked in rebellion against the Lord, this gives the devil the legal right to afflict us. We must repent of anything or in anytime our ancestors walked in rebellion and sinned against God.

  1. TRADING

Trading is an activity in the spirit realm. It is possible to trade in god’s economy. It is possible to trade in the devil’s realm. Everything is a trade in the spirit world. The cross of Jesus was the greatest trade of all. 2 Corinthians 5:21 says for he made him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of god in him.

Jesus traded his life of righteousness for us. As a result of this trade we have salvation.

JESUS’ DIVINE TRADING

ENEMY’S AFFLICTIONS             PROVISIONS OF THE CROSS

  • DEATH • LIFE
  • SICKNESS • HEALTH
  • POVERTY • PROSPERITY
  • SIN • RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • SHAME • GLORY
  • CURSES • BLESSING
  • SEPARATION • RECONCILIATION

Luke 19:15 says: – 5 “And so it was that when he returned, having received the kingdom, he then commanded these servants, to whom he had given the money, to be called to him, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.

The servants were supposed to take the currency that had been given to them and to trade the currency to produce something greater.

Currency can be much more than money. We have been given time, gifts, energy, favour, anointing and many other valuable things. How we trade with these currencies determines what is produced and gained. We trade every day. In 2 Corinthians 12 verse 15 Paul speaks of spending himself. And I will very gladly spend and be spent for your souls; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I am loved.

Paul says he would trade himself away for their betterment. In the natural, we take money or gold and trade it for other things. Paul said he was taking spiritual currency and trading it for the benefit of others. Our actions, attitudes, sacrifices, and gifts are being acknowledged in the spirit realm.

  1. TRADING CREATES COVENANTS; IN ANY AND EVERY COVENANT MADE THERE IS A TRADE.

TRADES CREATE COVENANTS

In the marriage covenant, people trade rings and vows and promises. Once we have dealt with any trades used, we must also undo any covenants that have resulted from the trades.

Genesis 21:27 – 27 So Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave them to Abimelech, and the two of them made a covenant. The trade signified their entering into a covenant or agreement.

People in our ancestry may have made covenants with demons for protection so that they would prosper or have power. These covenants were made through sacrifice or trades. Many times they were made using the sacrifice or trading of blood. Sometimes even the blood of humans. Once the sacrifices or trades were made the demons claimed the people as their own according to what was dedicated to them when the trade was made. In this way, individuals, families, bloodlines, cities, nations and entire cultures were given over.

These covenants created in the spirit world remain active until someone annuls them. Whatever the devil owns will eventually be destroyed through sickness, disease, poverty and tragedy. This is why many people are sick today. Somewhere in their bloodline, demonic powers have been given the right to own them. These rights have to be revoked. When this happens, the demons lose the right to hold the people in sickness.

“Lord Jesus I come repenting of any trade I have made with the devil and any covenant that has resulted as a result. I repent and I ask for the blood of Jesus to annul this covenant. For any place where my ancestors or I have gotten into an agreement with demonic powers, I repent. Whether this came through sacrifice to demonic powers or activities of rebellion and sin, I repent. If I have not only made covenants with devils but also broken covenants with man, I repent. I repent of any time I have been a covenant breaker, dishonouring or abusing authority. Lord, I ask that your blood will now speak for me according to Hebrews 12:24. I ask that Your blood would testify before the courts of heaven to annul every covenant with the powers of darkness. Lord, I ask that Your court now set in place all that You did for me on the cross. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for securing my healing by Your atoning work.

I now receive the effects of the anointing of the Holy Spirit into my body. Holy Spirit, come now to heal and restore any diseased part of my being, I ask, Lord Jesus, that any sickness operating against me now be judged as illegal from Your cross. I ask the Holy Spirit to touch me and make me whole. I receive everything you died for me to have. Thank you so much.

  1. DEDICATIONS OR CONSECRATION

THE REALMS OF THE SPIRIT COMES TO DEMAND FOR WHAT IS CONSECRATED TO THEM.

Just because you have prayed a prayer of salvation it does not mean that the conflict is over. This is when it begins. Satan will begin to build a case against you. This is especially true if you accept Jesus as saviour and not as Lord. When we accept Jesus as saviour we want the benefits of who He is and what He does. When we make Him our Lord we are declaring His ownership over us. This can be a fundamental reason the devil is still claiming ownership over us as a result of some dedication in our history.

Lord Jesus, we declare that we and our bloodlines belong to You. Any and every dedication made to the devil of our family line we now ask to be annulled by the blood of Jesus. We repent of any and every place we were dedicated to satanic powers through sacrifice. We ask that these sacrifices be annulled and the dedication rendered ineffective.

Lord Jesus, we acknowledge Your Lordship. We agree with the testimony of God as Judge, the Holy Spirit and all of Heaven that You are Lord. We now come under Your Lordship and declare that we belong to You. We are no longer our own; we are bought with the price of Your blood and sacrifice.

We invite the power of the Holy Spirit to exercise the Lordship of Jesus in our lives. We agree that everything Your blood purchased we now possess by the Holy Spirit. Every area of our lives we now surrender to you.

We now declare that any and every right is given to the powers of darkness through dedications to own us is now revoked. We belong only to the Lord Jesus Christ. Any and all sicknesses, diseases and pains afflicting us because of this previous ownership is now revoked and removed.

  1. WORDS

When someone with authority over our life or someone with authority in the spirit realm speaks evil of us, it can set things in motion. The demonic forces can take these words and build a case against us in the spirit realm. These words can give the devil the legal right to work against us.

People who are in authority can be parents, employers, bosses, leaders, pastors, elders, husbands, and anyone who has a position that gives them authority. Their words can be used in the spirit realm to bless or to curse.

People who have authority have been granted influence in the spirit realm. Because of a gift, office, call and history with God, they carry authority in the spirit realm. These people must be extremely careful with their words.

In 2 Corinthians 10:8, Paul speaks of using his authority correctly: For even if I should boast somewhat more about our authority, which the Lord gave us[a] for edification and not for your destruction, I shall not be ashamed—

Paul knew that his words had the power to build up and tear down.

There are 4 steps to undo words working against us.

1.) We must repent for every time we have spoken critically of others. We should also ask that any damage the devil has found a right to do to another because of our words be undone.

2.) We should repent for any instance where what others have said about us could be true. Sometimes their words against us are based on reality. We must acknowledge this and repent. We should ask for the blood of Jesus to speak for us on our behalf.

3.) Ask for the words to be annulled so the devil has no legal right to use them. We can ask for the blood of Jesus to revoke and remove these words from record within the Courts of Heaven.

4.) Declare that only what is written in the books of Heaven about us can happen. (See Psalm 139:16)

Let us pray to undo words that may be working against you.

Lord Jesus, I come laying my life down before You. I lay my life down and present myself as a living sacrifice to You. I declare that I was made by You, through You and for You. I declare I belong to You. I bring every word in the spirit realm that has been spoken about me before You. Any and every word that the devil is using that has been spoken by people, those in authority over

I first repent for every place I have spoken evil of others. I ask Lord, to be forgiven because of Your blood that now speaks for me. I am sorry for all my negativity and words of destruction against others. I ask that these words would be annulled and that the devil be unable to use them to secure legal rights to harm others. I am sorry for all of this.

I also repent of anything that has been spoken of against me and anywhere there is truth in these things. Lord, please show me anywhere I am guilty of that which has been declared about me. I take responsibility for anywhere I am at fault or in sin. I ask that Your blood cleanse and forgive me and wash away any rights the devil might use. I now ask, Lord, that all words against me be annulled by the blood of Jesus.

I ask for the speaking blood to speak on my behalf and revoke and remove all words that the devil could be using to build a case against me. Let these words be removed from the record of Heaven. Let every voice against me now be silenced. Let them not be used anymore to build any case against me.

The Baptism of Fresh Fire, by Rev Mossy Madugba

As a teacher and coach, you cannot graduate leaders without giving them books to read. You cannot be a leader without reading.

There are many Christian pieces of literature you can read but one important book is the one titled “Prayer Power”; people have tried political power, financial power, economic power; let them try “Prayer Power”.  It is a powerful weapon of a Christian.

For example, Australia once had a form of draught, all other powers could do nothing but a Christian entered the land and raised his voice and rain fell; the power of prayer (James 5:16).

James 4:3 – “…  When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures …”.

We do not get results because we pray amiss. Prayer power is still the ultimate power.

Other books you can read are:

  1. 4 levels of Spiritual warfare,
  2. Elders at the gate,
  3. ultimate leadership.

Isaiah 28:6 “…And a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgment and administers the law, and strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.”

For Christians to hold gates and be able to turn battles the gate they need fresh fire.

Matt. 3:11 “I indeed baptize you [a]in (with) water [b]because of repentance [that is, because of your [c]changing your minds for the better, heartily amend your ways, with abhorrence of your past sins]. But He Who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy or fit to take off or carry; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire”

This description in Matthew 3 lays emphasis on 3 types of baptism.

The water, the Holy Spirit and fire; which Joshua said only Jesus can do. Only Jesus can baptise with fire. In this world, I do not think, a fireless, powerless and laidback Christian can take us far.  We need powerful and courageous Christians in the world of today.  For example, Ireland is casting votes on whether to legalize abortion or not. People in support of abortion are flying down to Ireland and doing a lot of campaigns but what are the Christians doing?  Recently, it was told that by the Nigerian government that the Christians are killing more Muslims. This actually shows the extent of Muslims propaganda. Other “faiths” are passionate about what they believe in but in the Christendom, believers are laidback.

For example, In America, satanism and witchcraft are studied in Universities. Many people who serve the devil are not holding back. The Church is lacking in passionate worship and serving God; there is a need for a fresh fire. It is so bad that some church members will even ask you what will you do for me if I join your church? There is an element in the church now that was not in the early church.  Christians need to tap into the anointing of fresh fire.

Matt. 16:18 “And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock[a] I will build my church, and the gates of hell[b] shall not prevail against it …”

God is putting men at the gates

Psalm 127: 5b “…He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates…”

Genesis 24:60 “…let your seed possess the gate of those which hate them…”

These verses explain God’s blessing to the children of Israel.  This prayer (i.e Genesis 24:60) was prayed for Rebecca.

Also, when God restored Job; It was at the gates. Places of authorities, power and influence are for Christians to move the kingdom forward and we all to be there.  In recent times; CNN is being used to transmit ridiculous news about Christianity because Christians are not at the gates. Try this with Muslims and houses will burn.

It would be a wonderful thing if Christians are at other gates influencing policies and decisions for the propagation of the kingdom. Christians should not just be found at the church gate and live all other gates for the devil. When Obama was President of America, he went around Africa instigating that they should support same-sex marriage. If they disagree, America will retrieve funds and started blackmailing the non-supporters; this is because he was at the gate.

During the election of America, people did not want Trump. Although, he is not Pentecostal he is a Christian. This man in one year has implemented policies than Obama did in 8 years.  A few days ago, America opened the first embassy in Jerusalem after the International Christian centre embassy.

We need more Christians at the gate.  This is possible. For example, the present Prime Minister of United Kingdom is the daughter of a Minister. Theresa May decided she will be a prime minister at 8; when her father explained to her that certain things cannot be influenced except you are at the gate. When Margaret Thatcher became PM, she got angry and at the slightest opportunity, she took it. The present German Chancellor Angela Merkel; is also a daughter of a Minister and she is the longest serving Chancellor.

Martin Luther King Jr. also made a decision to make a difference in the world and got inspired by the church. God is ready to give fresh fire.

Luke 12:49 “I have come to cast fire upon the earth, and how I wish that it were already kindled!…”

He didn’t come to start a religion but to baptise the world with fire. When you carry fire, you carry the manifestation. Exodus 19 depicts how God uses fire; He used it to protect the Children of Israel and also to show them the way.

Wherever God is, there must be fire. You need to wake up with fire to have a fulfilled day.  Some people have been disconnected like Eli that needed Samuel to hear from God. I tell you, be encouraged. Go back and visit Jordan where John baptises. Let’s go back to Mount Camel and pick up the fire. Please do not go powerless, fireless, wait until you are induced with power from on high.  So, every one of us will walk endued with power.

The Apostle was able to demonstrate the power of God having received the Pentecostal fire.

  1. Acts 3.. “Peter gave something more than money but healing…”
  2. Acts 5…” the shadow of the power he carried actually healed the sick…”
  3. Acts 19..” handkerchief from the pockets of apostles healed the sick..”

These are people who have gone ahead of us. We carry the same grace today; wait until you are endued with power from on high. When you are baptized in the Holy Ghost fire it takes you into the fullness of the spirit. You bring forth fruits when it is needed, word of knowledge and word of prophecy. Romans 8: notes that God understands better when you speak the language of the spirit.  With the Holy Spirit, you become too hot for evil spirits; your passion will be induced by fire.

I discover that there is passion in the heart of your pastor for revival to break out which facilitates prophecy fulfilment.

A well was dug in 1906 at Wales, hoping that this well can be dug in Leeds for a revival break out when Christians come together. As Christians, we must passionately seek a reconnection. Many of your relatives have not given their lives to Christ because they cannot see the manifestation of God’s power in you. I implore you today; now is the time to get fresh fire; seek the face of the Lord and be rejuvenated.

Prayer: May the Lord grant me the fresh fire to move the kingdom forward in Jesus name.
