Do Not Put Away Your Confidence

Breakthroughs on an explosive proportion are upon us at this hour. Miracles are happening unprecedentedly. Am amazed at what the Lord is doing in his church at this time. The power of God is taking over and bringing in the revival.

Yes, we will continue on our subject of spiritual warfare. We have observed a little on our position in Christ and the position of the enemy to us now that we are more than conquerors in Christ.

Today we will visit our Amory and look at our amour carefully through the word of God. Now we are told in the sixth chapter Ephesians;

Ephesians 6:13
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.

Yes we are admonished to take whole of God. Many do not see this, it does not say, take unto you your whole armour. No! It is not your armour but the amour of God. What God wears upon himself for battle is what we are made to put on.

If we take unto ourselves any amour which is not God’s amour, we are so defeated. We are not to bring our amour to fight spiritual battles but we are to take the amour which is outside of us. The armour of God. We are to take God’s amour as our own.

Yes this is the question we should ask, how did God fight the enemy to give us victory?

The entirety of God’s armour for the defeat of Satan was Jesus Christ. Jesus is the armour of God. If we wear upon ourselves anything outside of Christ we are doomed to fail. This is why we are told Christ is our all. He is not our some but he is our sum of all spiritual things;

Colossians 3:11
Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

Now these following verses of the sixth chapter of Ephesians open up this amour;

Ephesians 6:14
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

Now we have said above that the armour of God is Jesus. Christ the power and wisdom of God (1Corinthians 1:24). Hence, lets look at the armour one after the order through the eyes of God,

The First, having your loins girt about with “Truth”
Which truth? We all know there is no other truth but He who is the truth. Truth is a person and that person is Jesus. The first armour we put on is Jesus the truth. You and I are not the truth. If we look to ourselves for truth, we are putting on ourselves as the armour. Our truth is Jesus. As long as he is the truth, he is tour truth.

John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

The Second armour mentioned above is the breastplate of “Righteousness”
Which righteousness? Mine or whose? Righteousness is a person not a doing. Jesus is our righteousness.

Jeremiah 23:6
In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

All our righteousness are as a filthy rag before the Lord (Isaiah 64:6). This why God has given us an eternal righteousness which is the person of Jesus. He is made our righteousness.
He is the one we put on and not our works to earn righteousness. If we dare, we fail. We have left the armour of our God to our own armour. You are not what God used to defeat Satan. Look at this verse;

1 Corinthians 1:30
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

Now let’s continue looking at the armour;

Ephesians 6:15
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

The Third armour mentioned above is “Gospel of Peace “
Which peace? Peace is not just a feeling. Peace is a person, peace is Christ.

Ephesians 2:14
For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

The gospel of peace is the good news about what Jesus has done for a bankrupt sinner as I am. Now we have peace with God. God is no longer angry with us because of what Jesus has done for us.

This is why it is called the gospel of peace. And it is truly the gospel of peace. In him I have found my rest. This is must be nothing else but the gospel of Christ;

Romans 1:16
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Let’s move on;

Ephesians 6:16
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

The Fourth armour mentioned is “Faith “
It may be strange for many but faith is a person. Faith is a spirit. Faith is the spirit of Christ;

2 Corinthians 4:13
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;

This is why we are told that he is the author and finisher of our faith. It begins with him and ends with him.

Hebrews 12:2
“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith”

And also this is why not all men have faith because not all men have Christ.

2 Thessalonians 3:2
“for all men have not faith.”

Now let’s move on and round it up;

Ephesians 6:17
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

The Fifth armour mentioned is the Helmet of “Salvation”

This doesn’t have to take long. Jesus is salvation.

Psalms 27:1
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid

And finally the Sixth armour is explained by the scripture;

Ephesian 6:17 “and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God”

We all know who the word of God is;
John 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Truly Christ is all and the sufficient armour. Just by putting on Christ you can see that the enemy is already defeated for he also believes and trembles before God. When we put on Christ we are sufficient for all battles in every season.

In an encounter with the Lord, I saw a child of God who was on a journey with the Lord, things kept looking darker and darker and this child of God felt he should withdraw on the pursuit of the things God laid before him. But I saw the Lord’s displeasure towards this attempt and I felt the Lord cautioning him.

I was led by the Spirit;

Hebrews 10:35-39
Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

Then the Lord, “Do not put away your confidence, I have reserved a great reward for you confidence in my word.

Let patience have its way as you are perfected to receive the promise. Your manifestation comes and will not tarry.

You are just, walk by faith and not by sight, do not draw back for if you do, my soul will have no pleasure in you.

But I know you, you are not of them that draw back but of them that believe unto salvation.

I Heard “I AM Doing Great Things for You” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

I AM Doing Great Things for You

 A lot of people have broken through. There is a tremendous amount of God’s power in and through us to which many are experience right now.

Yes, there is such a thing as spiritual warfare. Yesterday we saw some beautiful truths about our total forgiveness in the thirteenth verse of the second chapter of the book of Colossians. 

Now there is something powerful in the fourteenth verse of the same chapter. We are told;

Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; Colossians 2:14

Wow, that you may see this. It says Jesus blotted out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us. What is that handwriting that you think is speaking against you? What is that law that you are told is speaking against you?  All the curses of our disobedience to God’s law which were to be the root of all curses, all sicknesses, and all evil on us were blotted out by our lord Jesus.

Hear what the next part says which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; every thing contrary to us Jesus took it out of the way and nailed to the cross of Calvary. If there is something like a curse in the way of your blessings then it is from your mind and not from God. He took every ordinance that was supposed to be against us out of the way and nailed it to the cross and declared that the battle is won. It is finished!

Now see what the next verse says;

And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. Colossians 2:15 NIV

Oh he is not going to disarm the powers and authorities but he has already disarmed the devil. It all depends on where you are standing and looking at things. The above scripture renders Satan and his cohorts just as toothless dogs.

 Look at it in the amplified version;

[God] disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it [the cross]. Colossians 2:15 AMP.

Every power that was ranged against us is already disarmed. They are not killed but disarmed. Just like in the movies, if the one with the gun is disarmed and the other has a gun, we all know that the one with the gun has the victory already.

They can talk you out of shooting and make you drop your gun to wallow in their shame and defeat. They can talk but can’t do. They can only make you do. How? As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. 

They make you think you are cursed, rejected, worthless, you will never be healed, never be prosperous, your marriage has already fallen, your ministry will not rise, you will end up in shame, your loved ones won’t be saved. As you take these thoughts as your own, you empower principalities and powers.  All these are some of the lies. This is why the enemy is called a liar.

Then the eighteenth and nineteenth verse says;

Let no one defraud you by acting as an umpire and declaring you unworthy and disqualifying you for the prize, insisting on self-abasement and worship of angels, taking his stand on visions [he claims] he has seen, vainly puffed up by his sensuous notions and inflated by his unspiritual thoughts and fleshly conceit,  And not holding fast to the Head, from Whom the entire body, supplied and knit together by means of its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is from God. Colossians 2:19-19 AMP.

Observe carefully this first part of the verse Let no one defraud you by acting as an umpire and declaring you unworthy and disqualifying you for the prize

We are not disqualified, we are armed and the devil is just a noise maker when you believe these verses.  Now if the devil is disarmed and we are armed, then we need to understand our armory which is what we will look at tomorrow…

In an encounter with the LORD; I saw a Christian who was in a very tight corner. She was in the will of God, running on with vision.

I saw her in a situation where they needed to advance with the work but she was lacking the provision for the advancement. 

Then I saw the Lord come and say unto her “I am doing something”

I was led by the Spirit to;

Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things. Joel 2:21

Then the LORD said “Do not be afraid, be glad and rejoice for I am doing great things for you”

I heard “I have given my angels charge over” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

Royal Life
Daily Devotional & Prophecy

I have given my angels charge over

The revelation of the LORD is rising.  There is increased angelic activity with downloads of strategies for those rising.

There is such a thing as spiritual warfare. From our previous discussion the Holy Ghost has led me to begin something new along these lines.

A lot of light have been shed along these lines by many in the body of Christ which has helped me and many others. As knowledge is increasing in these end times, there are a lot of things the Lord has been revealing concerning this subject.

If there is a subject that has been much abused in the body of Christ, it is the subject of spiritual warfare. A lot of things we hear today about spiritual warfare are rather exalting the devil and diminishing the power of God through the finished work of Christ. 

I tell you the truth, if you know who you are in Christ, the devil is not as many make him to be. You will understand that he is like a toothless dog even though he still has a voice to bark.

We will be killing some sacred cows one after the other as we progress through the word of God. Before, we go into talking about how to war, let us look at our enemy through the eyes of the cross. Let us understand some things about us in Christ and our enemy.

Now, when we receive Jesus, we receive the fullness of all that God has, all of the father, son and Holy Spirit comes to dwell on our inside. Boy! this is incredible.

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: Colossians 2:9 – 10

It says above we are complete in Christ. Chanting this is different from actually believing it. We lack nothing in Christ. The fullness of the Godhead dwells even in us bodily.

But it does not stop there, it goes on to say “which is the head of all principality and power”  oh that you may see this. It does not say he is the head of holy principality and power but all principality and power are under his control. 

The devil is under the control of Jesus with his entire host. You may not accept it but the word of God is true despite your own belief. The devil cannot move an inch without the quickening power of God. He is totally subject to the supplies of God for his power and every activity;

I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession; 1Timothy 6:13

Observe the statement who quickeneth all things, it does not say he gives life or quickened good things. No, All things! He animates, vitalizes, and gives motion, energy and power to all things. This is why Christ is the head of all principality and power. Whatsoever he says concerning the enemy you ought to believe for he knows him better than all of us.

Now lets move on a little bit, in the thirteen verse of the second chapter of Colossians which we have being observing above, it says;

And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Colossians 2:13

Please observe carefully the last part of the verse “having forgiven you all trespasses” It is a shame, but a lot of us do not even know that we are forgiven all trespasses.  Many of us do not even know what it means to be a Christian. We say we are forgiven but we do not understand that we are actually forgiven all sins. Why do I say this?

There is something that is prevalent in the body of Christ today called generational curses. Supposed believers keep running around to be prayed for that the sins of there fathers are pursuing them. That their parents were into idolatry and all sorts of things so because of their sins judgment or evil have been pursing them.

Please o’ Christian, what is forgiveness of sins? When you accepted Jesus you were washed from all sins. Right from the sin of Adam to your very sins, you have been forgiven all trespasses, if you are not, then you are not born again. This is very simple it has become unbelievable for many. Nothing is pursing you because of the sins of your fathers or your past sins. It is just an imagination the devil has created in your mind which you have accepted. It is not scriptural, you are forgiven all sins.

I pray for a lot of Christians and they often fall under the power of God, I can name it anything. I can name it generational curses from the sins of their forefather been broken. If you are under a curse, receive Jesus and be forgiven of all sins. He took all our curses by becoming a curse on the tree. Receive him and receive freedom.

Then the next verse opens up something beautiful we will look at tomorrow…..

In an encounter with the LORD, I saw a Christian and I saw him open the door of his house to welcome angels…

I was lead to;

Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. Psalms 102:20

And again..

For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.Psalms 91:11

Then the LORD said; “It is an hour to do my word spoken over you. I have given my angels charge over you to fulfill the word spoken upon you.

They will keep you in all your ways lest you fall prey to the enemy. They will bear you in their hands. You shall tread upon the dragon, that old serpent and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

I Heard “Faithful is He that Called You” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

Faithful is He that Called You

We are rising, the glory of God is piercing the darkness. Truly it looks dark but if you can see through the word there is cloud of abundance appearing upon us.

There is something as imagination, a very powerful weapon for the manifestation of God’s glory. But many have not understood this weapon. The enemy is wise, as many as have not understood this weapon called imagination, the enemy is fast using it to defeat a lot of us.

Imagination is exactly as reality when it comes to spiritual matters. We are told in this scripture;

Proverbs 23:7
“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he”

Your thought is your reality. Whatsoever you decide to imagie will eventually turn out to be your reality. Imagination carries the idea of you painting a picture. It could be what you want to do or how you see yourself.

Now this is why we are told to always behold Jesus as we take his image we eventually become like him.

2 Corinthians 3:18
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

This is very crucial hence, God went ahead and gave us a picture of our reality to fill our imaginations with. We are told clearly in scripture our reality is Jesus. As he is, so are we in this world.

1 John 4:17
“because as he is, so are we in this world”

I am playing with this scriptures often that it may get into someone as it has gotten into me. His condition in heaven is my condition on the earth. If I can imagine this, then I will eventually become it here on the earth, for I am already as he is.

Now let me show you something about the power of imagination. When God created man, we had only one language. The entire human race spoke only one language. But this did not bother God much since we were in unity. But a day came when imagination came in. God had blessed man and said, be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth, but at this time man said no, we will remain together, build a tower called babel that will reach to heaven.

Now hear God’s response to this imagination;

Genesis 11:6
And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

Oh that you may see what is written above, it says behold the people is one…are you one with Christ? Then it says they have all one language. Are you saying the same thing God is saying about you despite what you see?

But here is my emphasis, observe carefully the last statement “and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.” This is God declaring the power of imagination. Even though this thing they had imagined was evil, God said because they have imagined it, nothing can stop them from achieving it, for as he thinks in his heart, so is he.

See, this is the reason the enemy has rushed to lay hold on this power called imagination. He knows whatsoever you imagine that you are outside of Christ, you will also become, hence, he is daily fighting to bring unto us imaginations. Now see this,

2 Corinthians 10:4
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

We have mighty weapons through God for our warfare for the pulling down of strong holds. But what are these strong holds?

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2Corinthians 10:5

The first strong hold mentioned is imaginations. If we imagine anything outside of what the word says we are, a stronghold has been erected.

Whatsoever is against our knowledge of who we are in Christ, whatsoever is against our knowledge of God, we are to cast it down to the obedience of Christ. By the obedience of one man we have been justified, made righteous and qualified for every blessing.

Romans 5:18-19
Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

I will daily imagine myself in the health of Jesus, in the prosperity of Jesus, in the Joy of Jesus, in the glory of Jesus, for as he is, so are we in this world. I will always engage the power of my imagination for a victorious life.

In an encounter with the Lord I heard “faithful is he that called you”

1 Thessalonians 5:24
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

Then the Lord said, ” I AM faithful that has called you, all I have spoken concerning you, I will also do”

I Heard “Prepare for Abundance” – By Pastor Jahfas Victor Ahua

Prepare for Abundance

God is exceeding expectations, fulfilling destinies this hour. There is a way made in the dark to which many who are led by the Spirit are following as an escape route. Things are so excited in the Spirit right now.

There is such a thing as fasting which is a pivotal exercise in Christendom but often misunderstood and used inappropriately. A lot of people fast to get God to move on their behalf. Some fast to make God do something. 

Some fast that they may earn something from God. Thinking, o’ that God may look upon the humbling of my flesh and do this or that for me. Some fast that God may give them miraculous power.

 But what does fasting really stand for in the New Testament? 

Now remember that God through the death, burial and resurrection of Christ has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. 

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: Ephesians 1:3

We don’t need to fast to beg God to give us something as though he is withholding something from us. God loves us unconditionally and has blessed us with all spiritual blessings by the finished work of Christ. 

Jesus did all the work and declared “it is finished.” We don’t have to fast to earn God’s favour. God’s favour is already upon us in Christ.

There are teachings that Jesus told his disciples fasting was needed to cast out a particular demon. There was a time in scripture when a boy possessed of a demon was brought to the apostles for them to cast out the demon. 

They could not cast out this demon and the matter was pushed to Jesus who did. Now when they were alone, his disciples demanded to know why they could not cast out the demon;

Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? Mathew 17: 19

Now look at the reason Jesus gave for them not being able to cast out the demon;

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Mathew 17: 20

Observe carefully the answer “Because of your unbelief”. Jesus did not say because of fasting ad prayer. No, he said the reason you could not cast out the demon is because of your unbelief. Now Jesus wants to give them the solution to their unbelief which was what was hindering them for moving in faith. Observe this next verse carefully;

Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. Mathew 17: 20

He does not say this kind of demon goes not out but by prayer and fasting as many include the “demon” today. If the finished work of Jesus, the name of Jesus, if the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus cannot cast out a demon, then no amount of fasting can. The subject under discussion was unbelief. Jesus said the reason you could not cast out the demon was because of your unbelief. So, now Jesus goes on to give them the cure to their unbelief which is fasting and prayer.

Why fasting and prayer? And how does fasting and prayer cure unbelief?

Remember man is spirit, soul and body. The spirit is born again but the soul and body are not. They are only receiving life from the spirit. The soul is the place of the Mind, Will and Emotions. This mind is totally carnal and an enemy of God,

For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. Romans 8:6-7

How do you deal with the carnal mind that the spiritual mind may resonate? You do that through fasting and prayer. Fasting and prayer humbles the soul that the life from the spirit may manifest;

But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom. Psalm 35:13

Yes, fasting deals with the soul. It weakens the flesh and the soul and helps us hear God’s voice better. The mind of the spirit resonates when we chasten the soul through fasting and prayer;

When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach. Psalm 69:10

Those seeking to know God better ought to always fast. This is the route to be established in the revelation of scripture. Paul was always in fasting and you can tell by the abundance of revelations he had. He was always putting on the spiritual mind through fasting. 

Whatsoever the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus have not given to me I do not want it. If his blood has not satisfied any blessing, then keep it. If I am to fast to earn power, may you keep the power. I do not wish to deserve anything. I go after the heart of the Lord who has said “I desire mercy not sacrifice” (Mathew 9:13).

Do I fast? Boy! I may scare you, not long I fasted for a whole year, from March 2019 to April 2020. 

Was I fasting to cast out a demon? No! 

Was I fasting to earn God’s power and blessings? No! 

Then why was I fasting?

 I was fasting to be established in the truths the Lord has being revealing to me. I needed a deeper understanding, for only by understanding is a house established (Proverbs 24:-3-4). I needed to discern the voice of God better.

Get liberated. Fast for the right reasons, for God’s favour, his unconditional love, the unfathomable riches of his grace are already upon us and sufficient for us.

In an encounter with the LORD, I heard “Abundance of rain”

I was led to;

And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain…

….And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man’s hand. And he said, Go up, say unto Ahab, Prepare thy chariot, and get thee down that the rain stop thee not. 1Kings 18:41, 44

Then the LORD said “Prepare for abundance! The little clouds, the little victories you now see are a sound of the abundance of rain upon you”
