“Unveiling the Profound Benefits of Intercession” By Sis. Blessing Ugwu

“Exod.17.11: And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. (KJV).

In this article, we will delve into the profound effects of intercession:

Impact on Individuals and People:
Intercession bridges the gap for others, leading them into light, salvation, maturity, and victory over challenges. For instance, Jesus interceded for Peter’s faith to remain steadfast, resulting in his remarkable contributions to the early church. Lazarus’ revival after intercession demonstrates its transformative power. Similarly, personal testimonies attest to intercession’s ability to break through sickness and adversity (Exo 17:11).

Transformative Power on the Intercessor:
Intercession draws God’s attention to the intercessor. As prayers go up for others, God attends to the intercessor’s needs, refining their character and circumstances. Job’s intercession for his friends led to his own restoration. Moses’ radiant face after communing with God illustrates how intercession can bring about personal transformation (Job 42:10, Exo 34:35).

Manifestation of the Kingdom of God:
Intercession activates the presence of God’s kingdom on Earth, summoning…..”

Empowered Prayer: How the Spirit Helps Us Overcome Weaknesses – By Sis Abby Ndubueze

“In the journey of faith, many believers encounter challenges that seem insurmountable. Like Judith and Jayden, they grapple with their weaknesses, searching for a way to connect with God and overcome their struggles. In the midst of this struggle, there is a powerful promise in Romans 8:26 that offers hope and guidance: “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities…” This scripture unveils the transformative role of the Holy Spirit in our lives, particularly in the areas of prayer, righteousness, and victorious living.

The Struggle of a Beginner:
Judith, a young Christian, yearned for a deep connection with God through prayer but felt lost and disheartened when her efforts yielded little. The feeling of God being distant left her frustrated, until she discovered the profound truth behind Romans 8:26. The Spirit’s ability to intercede when we lack the right words or understanding became her turning point. Through the Spirit’s guidance, Judith’s prayer life was ignited, leading her into a closer walk with God.

Bound by Weakness:
Jayden’s story mirrors the struggles of many who battle with inner conflicts, desperately wanting to break free from the chains of temptation and sin. His longing to live a righteous and holy life was eclipsed by his inability to overcome his weaknesses. However, the same verse that transformed Judith’s prayer life brought a revelation to Jayden – if the Spirit could help him pray, it could also empower him to lead a righteous life. This realization propelled him to the altar, where he found redemption and a newfound strength through the Spirit.

A Universal Need:
In our human limitations, we often stumble in our efforts to achieve success, righteousness, and spiritual growth. The phrase “for we know not what we should pray for as we ought” highlights the universality of this struggle. This acknowledgment resonates with our daily lives, reminding us that we all face challenges beyond our understanding and control.

Dependency on the Spirit:
Embracing the Spirit’s help and leaning on God’s sufficiency are the keys to strength and victory. Dependence on God forms the bedrock of spiritual growth and transformation. It’s a simple equation: “Dependence on God = strength.” The Spirit’s empowerment is not limited to prayer alone; it extends to all areas of our lives, enabling us to walk righteously and navigate challenges.

Empowered Living:
The promise of Romans 8:26 invites us all to experience transformation. Just as Judith and Jayden found hope and empowerment through the Holy Spirit, we too can live victoriously and become prayer warriors. The Spirit’s help breaks through our weaknesses, providing a supernatural avenue for growth, change, and spiritual abundance.

The journey of faith is not meant to be walked alone, nor……”

Hello August, Our Month of Kingdom Growth and Establishment Through Prophetic Intercession and Spiritual Warfare (Isaiah 62:6)

Hello August!

Isaiah 62:6 (Amp) says, “I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Jerusalem, who will never hold their peace day or night; you who [are His servants and by your prayers] put the Lord in remembrance [of His promises], keep not silence.”

There is no better time to pray and engage the enemy than now.

If men would pray, Satan and his cohorts will fall like lightning like the days of old.

I want to encourage you to partner with this month.

As you pray, may the devil fall down in every nation,

May His kingdom come into our homes, families, and all the nations.

May doors be open and captives set free..

In Jesus name.

Amen and Amen!

“At Gethsemane: Learning to Surrender” by Sis. Gbemisola Dawn Fache

“He took a few steps away from those who went up with Him to express the anguish of His soul.

That particular garden was one of His favorite places; there He spent many evenings there. But that particular evening, He was not there to spend just another time, as usual. He was there because it was time to do what He was born to do. It was like a woman in labor but having no strength to push out the child.

He knew it was the right thing, but somehow He wished He could negotiate His way and evade it.

He finally found the strength to ask, “If it is your will, take this cup away from me.”

But knowing that the will of God was not a topic of debate, consideration, or negotiation, He quickly added, “Yet not My will but Yours be done.” He surrendered.

He had reasons to choose otherwise, but He chose to do the right thing even though it was the hardest option.

He was weak, but He did not present that as an excuse. He simply surrendered for God’s will to be done.

The depth of His weariness became the depth of His prayer to God.

Surrendering is not saying yes to God in the absence of obstacles and weaknesses but choosing to…”

“Lessons from the Life of Timothy” By Sis. Blessing Ugwu

“The study of individuals and an understanding of their actions, lifestyle, and exploits can help us in our journey to purpose.

Here, I will explore some of the transitional truths about the life of Timothy, which can help every Christian in their walk with God.

First, who was Timothy? The name Timothy means ‘honoring God,’ and the man Timothy in the Bible was from the Lycaonian city of Lystra or Derbe in Asia Minor. He was born to a Jewish mother who had become a Christian believer and a Greek father. He met Apostle Paul during his second missionary journey.

Studying the life of Timothy has opened me up to the following wisdom:

Generational influence: The truth remains that everyone comes from a generation that either impacts and reflects on the next generation positively or negatively, depending on the actions of the previous generation. However, we can make a difference, just like Timothy, who was raised by a mother who was a Jew and a father who was a Greek (Acts 16:1). His father’s influence as a Greek, which was termed the uncircumcised, could not hinder his vision of what God had deposited in his heart. He carefully made the right choice, resulting in a glorious destiny. As you can see, no matter your background, you can still fulfill that mission through your decision.

Adhering to spiritual virtue: Timothy lived on with the spiritual faith transferred to him, first from his grandmother to his mother and then to him (2 Tim 1:5). It is a great privilege for a person, whether young or old, to hold on to the positive spiritual attributes being imparted to them. Although we are in the last days where evil abounds, this should not quench or distract our focus on this virtue, which is your life.

Sincere trust: Timothy was totally devoted and genuine in his assignment to the extent that…..”

Our Identity in Christ by Sis Abby Ndubueze

“One of the many pitfalls I had as a baby Christian was the issue of identity. I struggled so much with identifying and accepting who God has made me. Being a highly intelligent child with multiple giftings and graces was too much for my young heart to understand. Also, coming from a background where humility was the watchword and where women were to remain silent on Kingdom matters, I understood wrongly. In a bid not to be seen or perceived as proud and arrogant, I hid my gifts and ignored my purpose, thereby denying my identity.

The Merriam Webster dictionary defines identity as a distinguishing character or personality of an individual. I define identity as an IMAGE, TRADEMARK, OR LIKENESS. It is the uniqueness or idiosyncrasy that sets one apart. Any reputable organization that has survived the shift in the economy, demand, clientele, and has stood firmly can only be traced to the image they have built and maintained over the years.

When God made man in Genesis 1:26, He put His IMAGE (signature) on him. This means that any fault in the said man will automatically mean an error from the manufacturer, a misuse of the product, or an ignorance of the manual of operation. Your identity determines your function, capacity, endpoint just as the input determines the output.

Take, for instance, a mobile phone cannot perform the same function as a bicycle or a car. Neither can it cook meals. This is because its components and makeup were wired distinctly for the purpose of communication by the manufacturer.

Knowing who we are and what our makeup is, is the first step in gaining understanding, which can lead to either greatness or failure as the case may be. Failure because when the purpose of a thing is not known, then abuse is inevitable. Greatness because when the purpose is known, understood, and deployed, it produces tremendous positive outcomes.

Understanding one’s identity is the standpoint of our authority in Christ. The first attack on any believer is on his identity. In Matthew 4:3, Jesus was able to overcome because His identity was not in doubt to Him. Genesis 3:1 is an adumbration of Matthew 4:3. The devil has used this scheme severally and still does. Once there’s a word from God concerning a man, that becomes the devil’s point of call. He comes stealthily like he did to Eve, to make you question or doubt your convictions.

“Did God really say you are an Apostle to the ……”

Follow-up: A System of Soul Discipleship – By Sis Jane Edema

“Following up on converts involves providing ongoing support, guidance, and resources to help them navigate their spiritual journey and deepen their commitment to their beliefs.

Now, let’s consider seven key advantages an organized follow-up system brings to bear for a new convert in particular and the body of Christ in general.

Nurturing Spiritual Growth: Follow-up allows mentors or spiritual guides to support and nurture the spiritual growth of converts. It ensures that they receive ongoing guidance, education, and resources to deepen their understanding of their newfound faith. This consistent support fosters a strong foundation and facilitates their progress on the spiritual path.

Integration and Adaptation: Conversion involves a significant transition in beliefs and practices. Follow-up helps converts integrate their newfound faith into their daily lives, adapting to new rituals, ethical principles, and ways of living in alignment with their spiritual values. The guidance and support provided during follow-up ensure a smooth and successful integration process.

Addressing Questions and Concerns: Converts often have questions, doubts, or concerns as they navigate their new spiritual path. Follow-up provides a platform for mentors or spiritual guides to address these inquiries and provide clarifications. By addressing doubts and concerns, converts can deepen their understanding, strengthen their faith, and overcome obstacles that may hinder their spiritual growth……”
