FAITH IS A POWERFUL INSTRUMENT.

Telescope is an instrument that aids in the observation of remote (very far away) objects by collecting electromagnetic radiation (such as visible light).

A Microscope – is an optical instrument used for viewing very small objects, such as mineral samples or animal or plant cells, typically magnified several hundred times.

A Faithiscope – is an optical instrument used for viewing seemly invisible objects. It also has the power to see situations and circumstances.

  1. What telescope or microscope cannot see, faithiscope will see.
  2. It sees beyond the physical and scientific things.
  3. Faithiscope sees the invisible
  4. Faithiscope sees what others may not be able to see.
  • Moses saw what the others could not see when they were at the Red Sea.
  • Israelites moving forward when the Red Sea had not being parted into two.
  • Joshua and Caleb saw what other spies could not see.
  1. Faithiscope makes you to take steps that can be called strange.
  • Peter obeying Jesus to throw the net at a time that you are not likely to get fish.
  • The disciples agreed to feed the thousands with the lunch of a boy.
  • The lepers going to the High Priest even when they had not seen their healing.
  1. Faithiscope makes you to determine to do what others called suicidal or foolishness.
  • Jonathan and his armor bearer going to challenge the Philistines
  • David fighting Goliath without weapon of war, without armour or experience.
  1. Faithiscope makes you to suffer now and enjoy latter.
  • Joseph could have slept with madam Potiphar and end years of slavery but suffered and later became the governor of Egypt.
  • David could have killed Saul on several occasions but he waited for God and it paid off for him.
  • John suffered untold hardship for his faith to the point that he was banished to the Island of Patmos where God gave him the book of Revelation.

 

Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good report. 3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.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.

Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

2 Corinthians 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight 🙂

  1. Faith is still the answer to every questions of your heart.
  2. Faith is still the answer to the turbulent things that are bombarding us day in day out.
  3. Faith makes you to see God
  4. Faith makes you to see that sin is a hindrance to your seeing God and had been paid for on the cross of Calvary.
  5. Faith makes you to see that the simple way of coming to God is to confess your sins and accept forgiveness in the name of Jesus.
  6. Faith makes you to see that givers never lack, that the more you give, the more you receive.
  7. Faith makes you to see that a fruitful life is the only life that is spent for God and for the benefits of others.
  8. Faith makes you to see that to really enjoy life, you must lose it in Christ.

WHY DO WE DELAY SOLUTIONS?

Torments and oppression are not interesting but majority of us are used to it. We make little or no efforts in eradicating them. We offer little or no resistance to the oppressors and tormentors. Yet, God’s readiness is waiting –

Isa 49:24 Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered? 25 But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children. 26 And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

We are the prey in the hand of the mighty, and the lawful captive. God says we shall be delivered and He will fight with those fighting with us and feed them with their flesh and blood. So, God is ready if we are ready.

Exo 23:22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.

God will become an enemy of our enemies and that is what we need now.

 

WHY DO WE DELAY?

  1. We are born into oppression and torment
  2. We see many people in such situations
  3. We feel it is normal
  4. We think that we cannot do anything
  5. We feel the tormentors and oppressors are too strong tor us to confront
  6. We feel we are powerless and that we do not have the stamina to challenge.
  7. We do not know or recognize the provisions of God and His promises
  8. We do not know the readiness of God to fight for us.
  9. When we pray a little and nothing happens, we are easily discouraged.

 

PROMISES OF GOD

  2. Be ready to pay the price
  3. See your Saviour as big enough
  4. Trust and rely on Jesus.

Now is your time to pray and give God the chance to prove Himself great in your life. You have suffered enough, you have been under torture for a long time and Jesus has come to set you free.

Receive Your Freedom Now.

Trusting In God

For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
Psalms 84:11 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/psa.84.11.KJV

As you Go TRU BER months

Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
Deuteronomy 31:6 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/deu.31.6.KJV

RECEIVING BEYOND YOUR DREAMS

Ephesians 3:20  Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

1 Corinthians 2:9  But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

The provisions of God for His people are beyond their perception. God had been trying to tell man from the creation of the world that every problem has their solutions with Him and that He has the power and ability to do beyond our reasoning.

 

CASES TO CONSIDER

Joseph – joseph had a vision that he would be the leader of his family and that was why his brothers wanted to kill him and eventually, they sold him as a slave.  God placed him in a position that was not even in existence. The position was just created for him and it was far above what he could have thought about.

Israel at the Red Sea – all they were thinking about was a way to escape from Pharaoh. The way God gave them was beyond their imaginations. The sea gave them chance to pass and then swallowed all their enemies.

Rehab – she wants all her family to be saved and she was given a husband and was also in the lineage of Jesus Christ as in Matthew 1:5

Hannah1 Samuel 2:21 And the LORD visited Hannah, so that she conceived, and bare three sons and two daughters. And the child Samuel grew before the LORD. – She asked for one child, a boy and God gave her five more children.

The widow woman – 2Kgs 4: 1 – 7 she needed money to pay the creditors but God gave her even money to start a new business after paying the debt.

So, in all the cases, God gave them beyond their dreams. That same God is the One we are still serving today, He will behave the way He normally behaved.

HINDRANCES AND LIMITATIONS

What are the hindrances and limitations that we have today?

  1. Sin, the greatest enemy of man
  2. The level of our knowledge
  3. The ways we reason
  4. The society or group we belong to and
  5. The level of faith

If only we can fight all the hindrances and limitations in our lives, God will bless us beyond our dreams and visions

 

 

Ye that love the Lord , hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.
Psalms 97:10 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/psa.97.10.KJV

DIVINE TRANSPORTATION
Transportations normally carry you from where you are to where you want to be. So, when God
carry you from where you are to where He wants you to be, we call it Divine Transportation. We
shall briefly look at two examples from the Bible.

FROM PRISON TO PALACE
Gen 41:39 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this,
there is none so discreet and wise as thou art: 40 Thou shalt be over my house, and
according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater
than thou. 41 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt.
42 And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph’s hand, and arrayed
him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck; 43 And he made him to
ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he
made him ruler over all the land of Egypt. 44 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh,
and without thee shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt. 45 And
Pharaoh called Joseph’s name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to wife Asenath the
daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt.
It is easy to start praying that God should transport you from the prison of your life to the palace
of your destiny but we must think of the road that Joseph passed through.
As a beloved of his father, Joseph was sold as a slave and imagine how they would be pricing him
in the market. Slaves were bought for service so they would want to make sure that the slave they
are buying could be strong enough to work at the bargaining price. As all those bargaining would
be going on, what do you think was going on in the mind of this young man called Joseph? As a
human being, there must have been emotional trauma.
When Joseph got to Potiphar’s house, he was hardworking, cheerful and showed how great his
God was because his master saw the hand of God upon him. He was fully depended upon God and
from there lies were told against him and he was sent to jail without a fare trail.
On landing in jail, he continued his normal life of cheerfulness, hardworking and caring which led
him to be introduced to the king.
He was ready to help and was also using his gifts to help others freely. Whenever he had
opportunities to help other, he would always ascribe the glory to God.
In Potiphar’s house and in the prison, he learnt management.
Many things in his life helped him to fit into the position God transport him to.
The most important things we need to learn is that,
• The position was not vacate before that day, it was suddenly created for him.
• His CV could not qualified him for the post because he was a foreigner without resident
permit, a slave that was later promoted to prisoner.
With all these and other, nobody would think or dream of Joseph in such a post. When his brothers
came, they could not recognized him because they thought he would have died or still in slavery.
As difficult as you case may be, Divine Transportation is still available today and you can have it
even right now. If God did it for Joseph, He will do it for you.
The second example we shall talk about is –

FROM GATE TO GLORY.
Est 6:6 So Haman came in. And the king said unto him, What shall be done unto the man
whom the king delighteth to honour? Now Haman thought in his heart, To whom would the
king delight to do honour more than to myself? 7 And Haman answered the king, For the
man whom the king delighteth to honour, 8 Let the royal apparel be brought which the king
useth to wear, and the horse that the king rideth upon, and the crown royal which is set upon
his head: 9 And let this apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king’s mostnoble princes, that they may array the man withal whom the king delighteth to honour, and
bring him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaim before him, Thus shall it
be done to the man whom the king delighteth to honour. 10 Then the king said to Haman,
Make haste, and take the apparel and the horse, as thou hast said, and do even so to
Mordecai the Jew, that sitteth at the king’s gate: let nothing fail of all that thou hast spoken.
11 Then took Haman the apparel and the horse, and arrayed Mordecai, and brought him on
horseback through the street of the city, and proclaimed before him, Thus shall it be done
unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour. 12 And Mordecai came again to the king’s
gate. But Haman hasted to his house mourning, and having his head covered.
Mordecai was at the gate of the king. It was there that Haman wanted to kill him and the very
morning he was to die was the morning that he was transported to glory.
Imagine all those who were there when the gallows was being prepared for Mordecai, when they
saw him in the king’s chariot and Haman shouting of his glory, how would they understand what
was going on.
From the gate, Mordecai was picked up to be glorified. From that moment, he was going from
glory to glory.
This was a great thing that God did for him, divine transportation from gate to glory.
Whatever situation you are in today, I am here to tell you that you situation will change.

Look up
to God now, if He could transport a captive like Mordecai, He will transport you to your destiny

Pastor Mrs. Tinuke was on the dining table, she just had a bite from the turkey the husband put in her mouth. James their first Child started laughing and said Pastor and Pastor Mrs. This your love no dey end oooooo,🤣😍 even after the slight disagreement in the car here you are biting each other’s turkey. Pastor Mrs. Said, “Don’t worry, make sure you do more of these to your wife when you have your own home”.

Phone Ringing___ (Grannnnn, Grannnnn)
(It is Mr. Johne’s call). Pastor I just want to inform you that I and my wife are going to the village tomorrow to settle our quarrel. Pastor replied, “alright go in peace but before you get to Benue state I will call you for three assignments on the way. Make sure you do them”. Mr. Johne agreed.

When Mr. Johne drove to Berger along Lagos-Ibadan express way, the pastor called them. Pastor said there are three power houses along the road, one on the left and two on the right. There they call the name of Jesus and commit things into God’s hands, God has never failed his people there. Quickly Mr. Johne said, “yes I know them”. Mr Johne, decided to use the one on the left because their gates were opened to all.

Mr. Johne called the pastor, sir no program or retreat going on, what do we do? Pastor said, “yes, we don’t wait for church’s retreat before we go for personal and family retreat”. Pastor advised them to spend one hour there, to bind and loose and also do some spiritual warfare, pastor added, make sure you hold the hands of your wife, hold it firmly please.

After one hour, Mr. Johne, called the Pastor secretly and said while we were praying, I don’t understand what I saw, but my wife was crying and she refused to talk to me. But it looks like she is becoming gentle.

Pastor said, don’t worry continue your journey when you get to Ikire after Ibadan, buy dodo-ikire(fried plantain), open the nylon yourself and put the first bite in her mouth, then call me to tell me what happens. Mr Johne, said Ahhhh, pastor she will bite me, pastor said try it and call me back. Mr Johne bought dodo-Ikire and careful pointed it to her mouth.

Timidly, Mrs. Johne opened her mouth and chew, she was hoping for the second but she did not want to make the request. Mr. Johne brought it out and with her eyes closed she took it and kept gazing at the beautiful and lovely nature in the forest as they moved on. Somehow, tears flowed from Mrs’ Johne’s eyes and she began to recollect the day she said YES I DO to her man on the altar.

Mr Johne passionately cleaned her eyes and looked into her eyes, he couldn’t hold back his tears. He quickly proved strong and held his tears back.

Mr. Johne called the pastor and informed him of the latest improvement. Pastor said ok, when you get to Edo, stop at the filling station along the road, get into the restaurant there, make sure you serve your wife the meal, pour water on her hands while she washes her hands and eat from the same dish.

Mr. $ Mrs. Johnee did likewise, Mr Johne, quickly called the pastor and said myself and my wife had a long and loving discussion over the meal. We will continue the journey tomorrow.

Oh, Pastor quickly told them to lodge in a hotel, have fun together, walk around the hotel with their hand together, lots of kiss and hugs, and talk about the day they got married and how they exchanged their marital vows.

Mr Johne quickly screamed pastor, kiss ??? that will not work ooo. Pastor said if a kiss will not work try a slap. Mr Johne said, “Slap ke!, I will not do that, Oh I will try the kiss”.

The next morning Mrs. Johne, who insisted on the journey to Benue state, called the pastor to tell him they have turned back and they are in Akure. She added in four-hours’ time we will be in Lagos

Two days latter
Mr and Mrs. Johnee, came to visit the pastor
They were laughing like newly wedded couples.

Pastor said, “I did not want to stop you from going to Benue, but I wanted you to learn that in the midst of crisis we call on God.”
Pastor added this,

—On wedding day, we can call crowd, but in marriage we call on God

—If slap can ruin a home, then kisses can be instrumental in building home

—If beating can degenerate to divorce, then hugs can tie the bond ultimately

—Go for family and personal retreat even when your church did not organize one

—When you pray, make sure you take steps of faith likewise

Pastor said, I know if you do all those assignments you will not get to Benue before you return. They knelt down and they all prayed together. Think about it and learn a lesson that can make marriage work.

You will not fail in marriage in Jesus name.

For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
Psalms 84:11 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/psa.84.11.KJV

*IS IT YOUR BURDEN?*

After he preached, money was dropped all over the pulpit.
Some people were removing their gold necklaces and wrist watches and were dropping on the pulpit.
Some removed their SIM cards and dropped their expensive phones.

Another man of God came to preach to the same people.
The same people who dropped their car keys ran back home and brought out their juju and surrendered to the altar.
And were crying to God for mercy.
Some brought the guns and masks they use for arm robbery.
While some brought out their phones in front of the church and were destroying their SIM cards which they used to dupe people.
You could hear adults crying like babies.
Begging God for mercy.

What did the first preacher preach that made them ran back home to bring their money and didn’t make them drop their charms?

The difference is in the burden of the preacher.

How can we see the people who are trooping to hell.
Their prayer lives are dead.
And all that we are after is their landed properties and car keys?

To me, nothing is wrong with people coming to give offering when a preacher is preaching.

But Lord, help my life.
I don’t want to join those that are entertaining this generation to perdition.

If people hear me and drop their money without dropping their charms, it means I have failed.

Man of God, this month,
Ask God to give you fresh burden for the lost.
If you can, cry to Him to impact you once again with the passion for souls.

If not, people will look for you and will not see you.
You may be all over social media , television, billboards, radio etc.

Yet people that use to know you will start asking where you are?

The reason so many Pastors have gone to bow to mami water for power to grow their ministry is because God’s anointing has left them.

They started very well.
But along the line, they started making merchandise with the anointing.

God lifted His Hands from them and they became shadows of themselves.

Instead of them to cry back to God for realignment, they went down to Egypt for help, So as to maintain their crowd and their fame.

Today, forget the laughter on their faces.
They are in trouble.
Without fleets of cars and crowd in your church, you are still better than them.

There is an Angel wearing my face to tell you this now.
This month, go back to where you dropped your burden for souls…
Go back to those days when you use to pray and groan in Gods presence before the program for God to give you souls as you go to preach.
Remember the days when you use to celebrate anytime sinners were running out to surrender to Christ..

Go back to those days, sir.
Money will come.
But let’s not lose what money cannot buy while looking for money.
Tell your host to make arrangements before inviting you to preach.
Let them not mount pressure on you to raise funds to cover the hotel bills and recover publicity cost.

This is a generation that packs sinners in crusades and start raising funds from them without leading them to Christ.
A generation that organizes revival meetings where no one receives the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
No one was reconciled to Christ.
Yet, everyone sowed dangerous financial seeds.

And we don’t care.
God is about to move in the land.
He is about to silence many who are using Him to rob people and to give volumes to voices of men who have been carrying His burden genuinely….
If you are accepting preaching engagements this year, let it be for God to use you to reconcile people back to Him…
If not, you are declaring to heaven that you are no more useful in this on going end time revival and global harvest …
Oh….
May God not raise another man to do what He anointed us to do for Him…
In Jesus Name I pray.

CARRY A BURDEN-PREACH THE WORD – PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL – PROJECT CHRIST.
