KINGDOM IN FOCUS; THE CHRISTIAN MOTIVE FOR LIVING BY EHUSANI GRACE ORAHACHI


KINGDOM IN FOCUS; THE CHRISTIAN MOTIVE FOR LIVING BY EHUSANI GRACE ORAHACHI

Leaving the NYSC scheme, everyone wanted me to go for a job, start making money and building up my career. Good advice, yet deadly, why? Life is beyond all these.

When we let the needs and the wants in our life and that of others determine the course of our destiny, we would miss our destiny.

It is not enough to work, earn a living and put smile on faces. The purpose of our lives reaches far beyond that and until we let that purpose determine our course, we would live without living.

When you consider why you do all you do, what comes to you? “Man must fend for himself, man must move forward, man must change levels, and man must make money!” Are these your reasons? You are destroying your destiny.

Man was not created to live just to make ends meet. You were not created to live just so you can be comfortable tomorrow. You were created for a purpose far above all these and it is your responsibility to find it and let it guide you.

When purpose guides your steps, you would discover that you would not have to labor for ends to meet, they would meet because that is the promise of God’s word.

Your purpose is that God given assignment to you as his child for the advancement of his kingdom here on earth. Following this path early enables you to work in the right direction and it eliminates the stress and regrets that would come upon you if you fail to follow this path.

What is most important to your living is, discovering, understanding and walking the path of God’s purpose for your life. It fulfills God’s agenda for your life and his entire kingdom agenda.

When you came to receive Christ as your Lord and savior, God immediately grafted you into his kingdom army. Upon you was laid a mandate, and by you God purposed to fulfill a kingdom agenda that would affect his eternal kingdom. 

You are not ordinary, you are a kingdom material, a lively stone for the building of God’s eternal spiritual temple and his agenda for your life shapes you to fit in properly to your place in his temple.1 Peter 2:5

Many have lost out on fulfilling heavens agenda for their lives because they were more concerned about making it in life and started out without first seeking God’s kingdom agenda for their lives. This has placed a vacuum in the place they are to occupy in the kingdom and has affected negatively the advancement of the kingdom.

God’s call for us as Christians is to seek his kingdom first. To focus first on his plan concerning any and every area of our life. It is only by this that we truly please God and live out the full potential of our lives.

Seeking God first does not cripple your progress, neither does it prevent your advancement. Rather, seeking God’s kingdom first places you on a path certain with progress and destiny fulfilment. 

Most importantly, seeking God’s kingdom first places you in the path that fulfills the reason why you were created and redeemed by the blood of Christ.

You would work, you would earn money, and even get married!

 Yet, these as important as they are, should not be the reason to wake up and toil all the days of your life. You are worth more than these and a lot more is placed on the breath you take every minute. That more is God’s kingdom purpose for your life, it should bind and drive you to wake up, get out, work, earn money, and get married.

You may say, I will do what God has for me after I have made the money. You will never come back unless mercy prevails because no one can serve two masters at the same time. Your choice of money first would lead you down the route of destiny destruction. Mathew 6: 25-34

Christ knew that it would be easy for us to miss it in this world if we set our hearts to toil to provide for our basic needs and so he tells us not to worry about them. Note that he has not said you should be lazy, but he is saying, seek me and I would guide you in everything. Focus on me, and these other things would fall into place. Mathew 6:33, Proverbs 3: 5-6.

Are you struggling with life? Has the money and the fame brought more harm than good? Has the needs become endlessly insatiable? Has your success in career still left you with the feeling of emptiness? Is your marriage still unhappy even if you married your dream spouse? Check your motives!

Seeking God’s kingdom first helps us to lay a solid foundation for our lives that nothing can destroy. Anything that is built outside this foundation is bound to fail. Mathew 7:24-27

Yet there is hope, Christ can restore all areas of your life once you make him the focus of your living. You can still fulfill that God given destiny, just surrender it all to him. It does not matter how far gone and lost you are, you can begin anew by deciding to start putting God first.

God’s design for your life is far greater and much more beautiful than you can imagine. Decide to put him first today, and by his spirit you would fulfill destiny.

Pray with me, Lord Jesus, I am sorry for living my own way, forgive me and restore me. I come to you today and I surrender my life to you. Help me put you first always and may your kingdom purpose for me be fulfilled in me. In Jesus name. Amen

FROM THE MAIRY CLAY TO THE RIGHT HAND OF JESUS; A LETTER TO THE ANCHOR OF MY SOUL BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE


FROM THE MAIRY CLAY TO THE RIGHT HAND OF JESUS; A LETTER TO THE ANCHOR OF MY SOUL BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

I forsook you hundreds of times but you kept on coming closer to me.

You never gave up me.

I sinned the more, to make you go far away from me but You kept on coming closer to me.

You never gave up on me.

I lived anyhow with no value for you but you valued my soul, you appeared to me.

You never gave up on me.

I was messing around and youthful exurberances was my priority but you chose to reveal your ways to me.

You never gave up on me.

I was never bothered about You but You were always concerned about me.

You never gave up on me.

I love other things; pleasure was my deal but you loved me more than the “me”

You never gave up on me.

What manner of love is this? Even after I proclaimed to live for you, I fell tens of times but You were always close to me to lift me up.

You never gave up on me.

My vessel was filled with dirts and drosses, You came into it, cleaned it up and refined it.

You never gave up on me.

Now that am aware of your concern and work in my life.

I won’t give up on You.

Even when some of the promises are yet to become a reality but I can see them from afar.

I won’t give up on You.

Though the desire of the flesh beckons on me, I am not ignorant of the wiles of the devil.

I won’t give up on You.

The price for following You demands forsaking all to gain all from You.

I won’t give up on You.

I have set my gaze constantly on You, I don’t care about what the circumstances around me.

I won’t give up on You.

Others that gave up on You might appear going ahead of me; only time would tell.

I won’t give up on You.

You have prepared better things, time and place for me, I will remain conscious of it all my life.

I won’t give up on You.

Till that glorious day, when I will see You face to face.

I won’t give up on You.

MY EPISTLE PART 2; THIS WAS WHAT HAPPENED AT THE MEETING THAT MADE ME CRY AND RESTLESS ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT AFTER THE MEETING BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE


MY EPISTLE PART 2; THIS WAS WHAT HAPPENED AT THE MEETING THAT MADE ME CRY AND RESTLESS ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT AFTER THE MEETING BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

At the meeting while ministering, we all experienced strange dimensions of His presence. With lot of people slained under the anointing, many said they saw visions of angels during the meeting, prophecies, words of knowledge, people baptized in the Holy Spirit and so on, all these instead of getting excited made me wept.

I started by firstly considering the scene that made me almost stopped ministering. As the wind of His presence blew on the congregation and words of knowledge was coming forth while I was ministering, I saw quite a number of people in tens running towards me. They all embraced me suddenly; some hugged me, some held my suit, some grabbed my shoes, some held my trousers and so on.

It’s strange right! I saw their hunger and desperation for God, as I called for the assistance of the Holy Spirit to minister to them all, to my amazement, it was as if a volcano was released on them all as they got knocked down by the power of God.

That’s great! You may say, deep inside me after the meeting I was restless. I asked the Holy spirit this question which is still a burden in my heart;

Why do You(Holy Spirit) choose to use material mediums to be transferred and transmitted to people for impactations, deliverances and healings when there are billions of people on the surface of the earth?

He said to me; “many are available but few are responsible to Me in intimacy and alignment to God’s will per time”.

I couldn’t control the tears as I said to myself;

Of what use is my life if the shadow of a man could heal chronic sicknesses while my presence and words can’t heal someone’s of headache yet I proclaim to have the Holy Spirit in me?

Of what use is my existence if anointing oil could raise the death but I pray in tongues for hours and a dead body gets more cold?

Of what use is a life if an handkerchief can cast out demons and when the person come in contact with such handkerchief they scream ‘fire’  but people possessed around people that carry the spirit in the handkerchief can’t feel the fire at all?

I remember my friend, Sowore Samuel, who prayed in a meeting for the presence of the Holy Spirit to occupy a circumference of space and chair in the auditorium, everyone that came in contact with the space and chair were stained and knocked down by the power of God.

I have seen Tosin ADEGOKE transferring anointing into bottle water and anointing oil to be delivered to sick people somewhere and they get healed.

I have been under ministrations of David Oghenerobor, as he plays cords on the keyboard, the Holy Spirit flows through the sounds and everyone possessed that hears the sounds gets delivered.

I have heard Awe Ayodele chants in the spirit and men break down under conviction and weep for their lives.

I have removed my suit in meeting and it becomes a medium of impartation for people that desires the enablement of the Holy Spirit.

I am not giving the glory to these men neither to the media the Holy Spirit moves through but my concern is; “why does the Holy Spirit desire to inhabit materials and media instead of men?”.

No wonder Jesus said during His earthly ministry that “if men fail to worship God, He could raise up stones”.

Please, let us pray that God shows us things and reasons in our lives why He would desire to set materials and media on fire why he by-passes us.

Arise mighty soldier, there is more God can do through you compared to what you are experiencing now. Come up higher; your prayer, study and fasting time can be more than what you are engaging at the moment.

Let us pray! May we not be left behind in this end-time move and revival.

Have you lost your passion and hunger for God? Don’t be depressed, start with Him right now where you are. Pray until you feel His presence fresh again.

Selah!

MY EPISTLE PART 1; THIS WAS WHAT HAPPENED AT THE MEETING THAT MADE ME CRY AND RESTLESS ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT AFTER THE MEETING BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

MY EPISTLE PART 1; THIS WAS WHAT HAPPENED AT THE MEETING THAT MADE ME CRY AND RESTLESS ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT AFTER THE MEETING BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

Often times we see manifestations of the power of God heavy in our meetings.

We see people slained under the intensed atmosphere of His presence.

We have seen yellings and sobbings of men when the spirit of God invades our meetings.

We are not that surprise again when we see people fall under the anointing. Some see it as a yardstick to measure the quantity and quality of the anointing upon a minister.

Lots of our chairs have been broken and our ushers have choose to take painkiller drugs regularly after our meetings because they get to carry people under the influence of the anointing.

Many attend our meetings just to watch these occurrences as a drama but not to be impacted and inhabited by the Spirit that initiates it.

Our ministers are not concerned again about the aftermath of these occurrences in the lives of the attendees. They only rejoice that it happened and to them it’s a prove that they are in alignment with God’s will.

Our ministers are changing to performers as their sole desire is to show the congregation that God is moving and not meeting the desire of heaven for every soul present.

Where are we getting wrong?

*Why is it that despite these occurrences we haven’t met the demands of heaven momentarily?*

Why is it that those that fell under the anointing get back home and fall into sin?



Why is that those that wept under conviction during our meeting also weep in condemnation after falling into horrible sins after leaving our meetings?



Why is it that our attendees in our worship concerts who broke down by the influence of the anointing still queue up in clubs to listen to secular musicians?



Why is it that our worship leader that led us in a journey in the spirit as we all sang; “O Lord set my heart on fire for you” still listens to “If I tell you say I love you ooo” on his phone?

I might not be able to give answers to all of these questions but I can give answers to some from my experience at a recent meeting which made me share tears and restless all through the night.

TO BE CONTINUED.

MY EPISTLE TO MY MENTEE; YOU ARE A YEAR YOUNGER TODAY BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE.

MY EPISTLE TO MY MENTEE; YOU ARE A YEAR YOUNGER TODAY BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE.

As a secondary school leaver wondering about years ago, I heard the lyrics of a secular song; “forever young I wanna be, forever young (2*) and ever”. These lyrics gave me another definition and perceptive about life. I considered and understood that it is possible to live forever young and die as a young man irrespective of one’s age.

If I tell you; “you are a year younger today”, I am not out of context neither is it a grammatical blunder.

I have realized over time  that what makes a man really old is wasted time in years, it is not his age in numbers.

Growing up as a lad and up till date with the little results I have been privileged to have actualized, anytime people get to know my age, they have never told me I am old, not once. What I hear them say often times is, “this is strange, you are still very young to have achieved these results”.

When a man achieves in few years with proven results what would take others decades to actualize, we can say such man is young.

Mother Theresa, Benson Idahosa, Myles Munroe, Kenneth Hagin and so on died as young men and women.

No wonder Bishop David Oyedepo said on his 60th birthday; “I am still very young, every year is getting better”. His impacts speaks volumes all through the surface of the earth.



Evang. T.L Osborne said this about Sunday Adelaja; “you are wiser than your age”. Pastor Sunday Adelaja impacted and influenced a whole nation. He became Pastor of world largest church in Europe at age 33.



Christiano Ronaldo at age 32 after winning one of the greatest trophies in football (UEFA Champions’ League) said; “I’m happy and my age is just a number. I feel like a young boy. We won trophies and of course it’s one of best moments in my career. I say it every year but it’s true!”

DO YOU DESIRE TO GET YOUNGER OR OLDER?

As you celebrate today, please consider my wishes.

NEVER JOKE WITH YOUR PURPOSE A SECOND, YOUR PURPOSE IS NOT YOUR MATE.

From the story of the creation of man in the scriptures (Gen 1:26), it is crystal clear that the purpose why God created man in His image was first conceived and stated before man came into being. Therefore the purpose of every man is older than that man. 

Ask Jeremiah, God told Jeremiah as a lad that before he was formed in his mother’s womb he had a purpose (Jer. 1:5).

Hear this, as you relate with men older than you in age with respect and values, respect and value your purpose in high esteem.

STRIVE TO BE AN ENOCH RATHER THAN A METHUSELAH

Jesus ended His ministry on earth as a young man in impact and age. His contributions for the liberty and transformation of mankind is still valid till date.

Don’t wish for longer years on earth but hope for long lasting impact that your life can initiate. 

Methuselah and his kindrens were only living thousands of years by influencing the statistics of the  number of men on earth. Enoch came with another approach to life and he went to be with God as a young man, he chose to be different from his ancestors.

YOUR LIFESPAN CAN ONLY ACCOMODATE DIVINE PLANS.

Never unengage a moment, every second of your life counts. Your lifespan can only accommodate divine plans other things are distractions.

Note, we can make decisions for decades but we can take first step of action in a second. Know what you want and do what is necessary every moment of your life.

If God gives a man the privilege to live for 70 years, that means for such man to reach the peak of achieving God’s plan for his live, 70 years is God’s standard to achieve all that his required of him to really maximize his potentials.

Everyday is a plus for you. Be conscious like never before that someone gat your back who is always waiting to hear more about your milestones and earnestly waiting to see your name encrypted in the sand of time.

Don’t give excuse for anything, remain enthusiastic about everything as you have always been. Don’t stop improving because you are getting better by the day. Remain focus, greater things are ahead of you and you are getting closer by the day as you do the needful per time.

Happy dear, Glory Odoh. I am concerned about everything that concerns you. You are a trailblazer, a frontliner, a kingdom heritage and a pacesetter. Go herald your world, we are waiting for you. Continue to make us proud as you have been doing overtime. 

Your In Him,

Signed

Masterpiece David Olawade.

KILL THAT DISCORD; THE CHURCH, THE SOLUTION TO THE BREAKING OF NIGERIA BY EHUSANI GRACE ORAHACHI.


KILL THAT DISCORD; THE CHURCH, THE SOLUTION TO THE BREAKING OF NIGERIA BY EHUSANI GRACE ORAHACHI.

Nigeria our great nation, our home land, the land of peace and strength in diversity, the land with the prophetic mandate to evangelize the world is at the verge of breaking. 

We cannot afford to stay at ease, no longer is it okay to keep silent and watch. The church must arise and take her place. She must sit at the mountain of wailing, she must match on the streets of righteousness and never cease to labour in travail until Nigeria is healed.

For our land is sick! Sick with the disease of corruption and greed, sick from the poison of injustice and inequality, sick from the mismanagement of wicked hearts, sick from the violation of violent minds. Nigeria is sick and at the verge of death and we must arise and redeem her fast.

The mandate of God upon this nation is too grave to be slaughtered on the alter of division. God’s investment in Nigeria cannot be traded for the filthy gains of ethnic bigotry. We cannot sit down and watch the men without vision tear this nation to pieces, we must arise.

We must arise and take our stand in this nation. We must declare where our interest lie. We must make it known that we are driven beyond the present current of tribal differences. We must show that we are not going to dine at the table of greedy taste for corrupt power. We must let all know that we have one passion, one focus, one goal, to see Christ reign in Nigeria.

Yes, to see his kingdom prevail in all sectors of this nation. We must not compromise this stand, for to do otherwise is death to the nation or any nation yet to arise.

For what plagues Nigeria is beyond the distribution of the control of power, it is beyond the distribution of resource control and benefits, it is beyond the manifest injustices and political intimidation.

What plagues Nigeria is the ill of the human nature, that self that has fueled the wickedness and hardships that is tearing Nigeria apart.

Who says that it is restructuring that is the solution? Who says that Biafra would end the marginalization of man by man? No it cannot, because hidden within it, is the yeast of greed and lust for power that is soon to leaven the lump and make it unpalatable. 

Therefore the church must rise to this occasion and shine the light. The church must travail for the son of righteousness empowered with wisdom of the Holy Ghost to arise. The church must sever from strange relationships and unite to enthrone that son that would bring the reign of righteousness, justice, peace, equality and healing to Nigeria and other nations of the world.

Where the righteous rule, the nation is prosperous. Where the kingdom of Christ is established, the nation is peaceful. No peace for the nation where the wicked is in power, no matter how pure his intentions, his nature remains a reproach to the nation.

So I say to the church, arise! Nigeria is crying for the righteous Leadership only the church can provide. Selah!

iTONGUES CONNECT; FIRE IN MY BONES BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE


iTONGUES; FIRE IN MY BONES BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

We see a gross darkness on the face of the earth. Men marching on a fast lane to hell. Multitudes afflicted and frustrated. Miracles, signs and wonders are becoming a scarce occurrence when we have enormous people around waiting and longing to experience one.

We have read enough about revival, we want to experience it on a daily basis. I know we cannot always do everything but we can do something on the altar of prayer. 

We want to burn on for you, Lord. After all, whatever you may appoint, prayer is the great thing. Oh, that we may be a men of prayer!

Give us the love that leads the way, the faith that nothing can dismay, the hope no disappointment tire, the passion that will burn like fire. Let us sink to the clod; make us thy fuel, flame of God.

In spite of satan, we will pray, spend hours in prayer; rather neglect friends than not pray. Rather fast and lose breakfast, dinner, supper and sleep too than not pray. 

We must not only talk about prayer, we must pray in right earnest. The Lord is near; He comes softly while the virgins slumber.

Give us the fire of prayer precious Lord; “that we may pray with tears, in brokenness, that we may pray for the lost world, then pray for nations we knew little about.

Our heart is at rest, but we are restless for revival. We have peace,  yet we are at war against principalities, power and everything in the church that clutters up and blocked channel through which revival could come. 

Because the church has lost “Holy Ghost Fire” many are going to “Hell Fire” today. Oh my father “that we may stand the test of time in this perverted generation”.

O! our saviour, we say this again with more insistence than ever; “teach us to pray”; impart in us all disposition needful for the prayer of the Holy Spirit. Make us humble, simple and docile; may we do all that is in our own power to become so. 

Of what use is our prayer if the Holy Spirit does not pray with us? Come, Holy Spirit, come to dwell and work with us! Take possession of our understanding and of our will; govern our actions not only at the moment of prayer but at every moment.

Help us Holy Spirit as we pray with great burden.

JOIN THIS CHARIOT.
