Non-Negotiable Counsels of God’s Kingdom – Part 4

Dearly Beloved,
-       Facets of the corporate church has gradually slipped into carnally handling the least strata of fallen angels (i.e. demons which folks like Judas Iscariot once cast away –Lk. 9:1), simply because we haven’t been equipped with the technology (know-how) of disobeying Satan’s wiles (Eph. 6:11)

-       Painfully, many gatherings today are no threat to his reign or air advantage (Eph. 2:2) because they are not in sync with the feast of knowledge (Hab. 2:14/Isa.11:9) prophesied in Isaiah 25:6-7, which should give the saints Zion’s height advantage over the enemy (Eph. 4:13/Rev. 14:1).

-       The Lord Jesus has been restricted from many pulpits ever since truth was declared an unwanted commodity (Jer. 5:31/2Tim. 4:3), and He has had to use unconventional and unpopular channels to ‘smuggle’ truth into the earth (Isa. 59:14).

-       Jesus, who has been made both Lord and Christ (Acts 2:36) must be Preached and Revealed (1Cor. 2:2/Rom. 16:25), so we can know and have His Father as Our Father (Jn. 20:17/1Jn. 1:1-3).

Pls find grace to patiently tarry with the following transcribed message, and I trust that we would gradually see ‘the other side of the bible’ (Acts 22:14), Learn the Spirit, Walk in the Spirit and ultimately join forces with the forces of heaven as prophesied by late Kenneth E. Hagin, amen.
Your delighted servant,

Non-Negotiable Counsels of God's Kingdom - Part 4
(An Appraisal on Seeking God For God & Seeking God For Things)
If you check the Bible, the owners of dominion were those who did not necessarily have things around them, people like the prophets. In God’s sight, the prophets of Israel where the actual kings over Israel. The clothing of someone like Samuel was not ordinary, though it was a rag to a natural eye. King Saul mistakenly tore it and he said to him ‘the dominion has been divided from your hand’. So Samuel was actually wearing Israel.

Those prophets were even higher than the kings of Israel. They may not have sat on physical thrones but their prophetic office was their throne. Elijah was handling a dominion and therefore anointed Jehu as a king, anointed priests and also anointed Elisha.

When Jesus was on earth, the dominion of the world was on earth (Jn. 3:13/Matt. 28:18). While tempting Jesus with the glory of this world in Matt. chapter 4, Satan was perverting an Adamic dominion and He simply took man’s space to do so.

Food and raiment was actually God’s business from the beginning, but after man fell, man fell into seeking such things. If you have spiritual understanding, you will know that I am not speaking against engaging in a work, but rather, I just want to show you the real state for entrance into the kingdom. Satan has changed human labour to things and called it life, but that was not man’s life before.

Adam had a high kind of life, but God gave him a vocation to seek a higher life in Eden through the tree he planted. Then came Satan who showed him another life which was another lie inherited by all and resulting in soul diseases (Ps. 103:2-3). The reason for church is to treat this soul problem/overcome it (i.e. corruption – 2Pet. 1:4)

Ps. 103:2-3 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases

(i.e. medical doctors can carnally treat diseases of the body but only New Testament ministers with priestly sights can spiritually minister to, and treat the diseases of the soul caused by sin and disobedience)



2Pet. 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. Selah

Eternity is so vast that you cannot finish it and God is saying ‘I am going to bless you with eternity while in time’. Our time is like a vapor or shadows that vanishes away, but God is saying; I will put my reality in you so that you can inherit me in the days of your flesh.

Jesus was teaching us the concept of the nature of the Father in these passages and was saying “I feed the sparrows” (Matt. 6:26). The fowls of the air don’t eat by mistake; their survival is a deliberate act of someone (Ps. 145:9). In like manner, God cares for that mad man that lives underneath the bridge.
When you see mad women with babies, they do not need many of the medical prescriptions we depend on to survive; they survive by God’s mercy, and God is still saying “If I can feed the birds of the air, how much more you, oh ye of little faith”?

From Matt. 6:27–29, we can see that birds are creatures who neither talk nor ask God for clothing, but God comes down to dress them! The wisest and the richest king on earth (Solomon) had no clothing like theirs. The glory of each flower is very expensive, because it’s a living pigment (i.e. our clothes fades and is dead but their clothes transpires). Let us believe the scriptures, let us believe our heavenly Father and we would set his supernatural power into motion.

A translation of Matt. 6:31-32 renders it this way; “For all these things the nations of the Gentiles seek”. Check out the national budget of the nations of the earth; it is all centered on clothes and food, and that tells you what the kingdom of this world is made up of. They do not spend money on eternal life because they cannot see it. They only spend money and draw up budgets around that which is subject to corruptible because that is as far as they can see. They cannot see beyond that which fades or passes away.

The earth is a gift and your stay on earth is a gift to seek God’s dominion. It is a privilege for you to be breathing, and if so, the next thing you should think about shouldn’t be clothes, food and shelter but rather, how you can gain enter the kingdom

This passage differs from praying for things. It is possible for you to pray for things and get them but not get the dominion of God’s Kingdom. There are a whole lot of people that have amassed things but are clueless about the kingdom. Gentiles believe in getting things alone but Jesus said; “we should not be like the Gentiles”. The reason why the Gentiles seek these things alone is because they cannot see.

We are in an hour of the giving of this dominion. God can no longer tolerate corruption and corruptible things.  What betrays us is how we think. It is not easy to fight corruption because you are fighting Satan when doing so. Satan knows that when a man enters the kingdom, he is in trouble; his time would be shortened and the judgment of lake fire would draw closer. Satan is not afraid of hell fire but of lake fire and he is simply delaying that programme by perpetuating his dominion.

If you ask God; “When are you going to come? God will ask you ‘When are you going to bring me’”? God is always ready for us, but we need to break allegiance with the thoughts of the enemy to receive him.

Ministries are so weak that they cannot raise men above things. The house of strength is the church which God loves direly. Things have defined our life. What we call our life is what has enslaved us under one man’s dominion. The adversary has taught mammon and has given mammon commission not to let man eat until man passes through it.

Things of the world were once free to man before the fall, but now, we have to pay to get almost everything on earth. The original design from the beginning was that man should not pay for food and clothe but mammon took everything from man. Do you know the land you bought is not yours; somebody borrowed you, - the government, and they did so for ninety nine years! After a while, you will have to renew your tenancy again, telling you that you really don’t own it. Any Christian that is interested in politics should enter the kingdom first and then he will handle this world very well and remain incorruptible.

Jesus spoke about the eyes in Matt. 6:22-7:5 and drew our attention to the fact that no man on earth should judge because we all have a sight problem that is corrupt. Our system of evaluation is completely wrong, so our judgment can’t be trusted. Why should you judge when you are not okay? The day you become a judge is the day you submit to God to remove the mote in your eye.

The word Moth in that passage denotes an agent of corruption (Matt. 6:20) and the word Beam denotes things that blurs our vision and limit us from seeing properly. Jesus was simply saying, “you need to treat your eye with righteousness and righteous judgment needs to be administered to you” (Jn 5:22). When you apply the medicine of righteousness to your eye, you will come into correct judgments and you will see as you ought to

When your eye is single, it will lead you to life but when it is pluralized or scattered, it will lead to destruction. You cannot locate the narrow way (Matt. 7:14) without a single eye. When you still serve God for things and not for God, you will be susceptible to false prophets.

Our problem is lust and it gets us captivated. Lust is the snare of the Fowler and that is what Satan sells. As long as that lust is in you, Satan will always get you. Satan will close deals with you when he knows that you have lust and nothing will deal with lusts but the incorruptible seed, which is the word of God that liveth and abideth forever (1Pet. 1:23). The day lust is done away with in man’s heart, he begins to gain entrance into the dominion and can’t be pulled anymore by Satan.

You cannot discern someone who is false except you have treated corruption. We all used to be false. When Jesus was talking about the evil tree, He was actually talking about all of us. We were all false when we met Jesus, but afterwards, some refused to be purged of the corruption as light came their way. John 3:19 says “This is the condemnation that light has come but men love darkness rather than light’. Darkness here is this way of life which some will not let go of

Matt. 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
THE REVEALED WILL OF GOD IS THE ANTIDOTE TO REMOVING CORRUPTION. You do not get cleansed except you are doing something called THE WILL OF GOD. Col. 1:8-10 confirms that “the purpose of having the knowledge of His will is to deal with the corruption”. It means the church of Colossi hadn’t been free from corruption when Apostle was praying for them.  
Ananias said to Paul when he was still blind, “you are chosen for a purpose; to unearth the secret of great deliverance for the people of God”. That is why the God of our fathers chose you to see the Just One, hear the voice of His mouth and know His will (Acts 22:14)
Nobody knew the will of God until Paul arrived on the scene in Acts 9. Jesus could not communicate the understanding of that will and for Apostle Paul to understand it, he had to suffer many things. Eph. 1 therefore declares Paul an apostle of Our Lord Jesus Christ by the will of God. He was a minister of His will and anybody that hears what he said will be cleansed (Eph. 1:4b)
Bless You!

Non-Negotiable Counsels of God's Kingdom - Part 3

Dearly Beloved,

We feed our bodies with what we call ‘food’ today (Adam can tell better), but we have a poor commitment to feeding our souls with the bread of the kingdom (Matt. 4:4/Jn. 6:33).

At our present pace, our souls cant end up siting (Rev. 3:21/1Tim. 6:12) like our regenerated spirit is seated with Christ (Eph. 2:6) because our present spiritual meals cant empower us to obey the faith of Christ (Rom. 1:5b/Gal. 2:20/1Jn. 5:4) and thereby disobey the corrupted angelic faith that became sin (Eze. 28:15)  

The enemy knows this more than not a few folks today and continues to subtly limit us via the art of taking thought for our lives which runs contrary to Gods Faith (Matt. 6:25)

The following transcribed message runs contrary to the emphasis of adulterated Christianity and courageously celebrates the faith that was once handed down to the saints (Jude vs 3). Who can receive it (Matt. 19:12)?

Non-Negotiable Counsels of God's Kingdom - Part 3

Scriptural Reading: Matt. 6:22-23 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

It is not easy for our eyes to be single but if God grants you mercy, you will discern and agree with the above verse. We unknowingly argue with the things of the kingdom, especially Jesus’ statements.

The body Jesus was referring to in this passage is not a physical body but that of the soul. What Jesus taught about the singleness of eye was the same thing with the teaching of the enlightening of the eyes of our understanding (Eph. 1:17)

You have to understand the complex message of Apostle Paul to be able to understand the simple statement of Jesus. Jesus was a master of revelation. He had mastery with words and was also poetic in nature. While we ministers are still growing in utterance, Jesus had the stature for utterance. Utterance is the ability to see clearly and to be able to describe it.

To attain a single eye as a child of God, you must seek one thing (Ps. 27:4) and to do so, you must experience the deliverance from the power of darkness that Paul made reference to in Acts 26:18.  SATAN SHOWS US MANY THINGS TO SCATTERS OUR SIGHT (JUDGEMENT) BUT GOD SHOWS US ONE THING TO MAKE OUR SIGHT SINGLE BY.

The eye must never be pluralized; it must just be one and that was what He did to Adam. But Satan kept braking and scattering man’s focus over time until man couldn’t press into God’s eternal purpose and men entered into darkness. Man now uses a kind of light called darkness (Matt. 6:23/Jn. :19)). Satan propagates a light which is actually darkness. He tells us how to see and that is how he darkens. He shows us ‘light’ and we take it for life and men die thereby.

Few ministers know Satan who once had mastery of wisdom and completeness before he fell (Eze. 28:12) and had a touch of perfection (Eze. 28:15a) in all he did. You can cast out demons but cannot cast out Satan. You can only wrestle (Eph. 6:12) with him after attaining a priestly spiritual stature and putting on the whole armor of God. He can fill a Christian that has the Holy Ghost inside him, like he filled the hearts of Ananias and Sapphira (Acts 5:1–5).

What man pursues as light/dominion is actually Satan’s concept. He brought out a concept to keep us busy so that we can lose the seeking of God’s life. Jesus therefore said “it is possible for the light in you to be turned to darkness” (Matt. 6:23”. It will take great mercies for us to reject evil. You must have come into a superior judgment through the spirit of wisdom and revelation.

From Mathew 6:24, we can see that service begins from how we see. Jesus tied service and worship of God to sight. All that Jesus was actually breaking down in this passage was the formations of the enemy in the souls of men. Satan has tied man’s life to things (where he has an advantage) so man’s allegiance would always be to him. He stays behind things and anointed mammon to control things

Mathew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

Anytime such message is being taught, fear harasses believers. While taking thought for things and we ask God for such thing, God will give us those things as a compromise because of our level, so he doesn’t lose us. So God waits for us to come to a level where you would be separated from such earthly thoughts. BEFORE YOU CAN ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM, YOU HAVE TO OVERCOME THE PROGRAMME OF TAKING THOUGHT. What Satan uses to hinder us are the legitimacies of our life which Jesus called the cares of this world (Mark 4:19)

You need the grace of God to obey this commandment. You cannot discern a Pharisee if you don’t have spiritual eye (Matt. 5:20). They were so holy in the face of Israel who couldn’t find any fault in them. It took someone like Jesus and John the Baptist to discern them (Matt. 3:7/12:34). We need help to be able to set our righteousness aside and to pursue the righteousness of the kingdom.

In Mark 11:23–24, we see a type of faith taught to carnal believers that says; ‘If you do not believe or have faith, you will not receive’, but in Matt. 6:23–30, Jesus went far further and taught the operation of another faith that says ‘don’t even think of such things (i.e. food, shelter and clothing). It sounds like these verses contradict each other but that’s not the case. These are expressions of faith towards God and the faith of the Son respectively

Because men were of little faith, they could only relate with a higher principle of faith towards God that emphasized ‘believe it, confess it and claim it’ which won’t work when it comes to the issue of inheriting the kingdom. THE TEACHING OF FAITH TOWARDS GOD DEALS WITH OUR EARTHLY NEEDS WHILE THE TEACHING OF THE FAITH OF THE SON DEALS WITH OUR ETERNAL NEEDS/THE KINGDOM. (Mk. 11:23-24/Matt. 6:25–31)


When you are looking for the dominion of the kingdom, you have to forget about yourself and look unto Jesus, the real prototype of man. Jesus was saying ‘if you want to go higher, forget about how you will clothe yourself and what you will eat’, because that thought in itself would ensnare you.

There is something about God; He deals with you at the level you want to operate with Him. If you want to remain in the realm of oh ye of little faith, you will be there but forget about the issue of the kingdom. The issue of the kingdom is not what you will be forced to enter into; it has to do with your choice.

If the dominion of God comes down into Christianity and becomes the order of the day, messages from most pulpits will change. The pursuit of Christianity will also change globally and the emphasis of Christian books would change.

There was a rich young ruler who had used faith towards God to prosper legally. He ruled by the power of things but Jesus ruled supernaturally. He relied on things but Jesus lived without such things, so he marveled that Jesus lived one day at a time!

You should be free like a bird that don’t sow nor reap. You should be free like the lilies of the valley that do not have a sense of gathering. If you check how Adam survived in garden, you will discover that he was not thinking of tomorrow. It was sin that brought such thoughts. He had absolute faith in the Father. When he was created, he met storage and provision. He was not raised to fend for himself.

Bless You!
