2 Corinthians 8:9
There is nothing in the word of God that does not have power backing it.
Peter said to Jesus, “bid me to come.”
And Peter stepped out and started walking on “Come.”
Just one word from God is enough to change your situation.
Not the word you just heard, but the word you hear and act on.
Peter would not have had that testimony if he didn’t come out of the boat.
Jesus said to him “Come.”
There is practical Christianity, not theory.
Other people told the testimony of Peter, but Peter was the one who experienced it. This was because He was the one who stood on the word of Jesus, “Come.”
2 Corinthians 8:9
He was without blemish and without sin, but He took our sins and gave us His righteousness.
He was wealthy. He took our poverty so that we can take up His wealth.
The same way you can say “I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus,” That is the same you can say “It is too late for me to be poor.”
The devil that could not stop the crucifixion cannot stop your manifestation.
Jesus has paid the price for my salvation. He has paid the price for my healing. And He has also paid the price for my wealth.
Though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor. That through His poverty, we might be rich.
A lot of people do not understand what His riches contains.
He said “I’m coming to take your poverty, but you take my riches.”
But you can only be excited about this deal only if you know the content of the basket that Jesus gave to you.
What is the content of the basket?
In the area of the riches, it is in Psalm 24:1
The Earth is the Lord’s.
The content of the riches is that the earth is His.
Everything that the earth can produce belongs to God. And all those that dwell in it, both born again and unbelievers, belong to Him.
When you go for a job interview, the HR belong to the Lord.
So, when God says “Employ,” they have no option.
Whatever the devil has stolen from you, He is going to pay you back.
The Bible says that when you catch a thief, He has to pay seven times.
If you lost one opportunity, get ready. Seven open doors are coming.
This is the word of God, and nobody can stop it.
You fight for what belongs to you.
You need to know that it has been given to you, by God Himself.
You need to leave baby Christianity and get to the Christianity of Dominion.
Jehovah is the Landlord.
God never gave Adam ownership of the earth. He only said “Keep it, and tend it.”
Jehovah is still the Landlord.
The devil took over what Adam had. He only took over management contract. The C of O still belongs to Jehovah.
Do you know who you are?
If you know who you are, you will go for that job or interview with your shoulders high.
Until they take you, they will not take another person.
The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof.
Jesus says He is about to give us Grace.
What is grace?
Grace is you having what you did not pay for.
It is the identity that you belong to the President of the Entire Universe
The son of a President does not need to have a first class Degree.
We have a Father in power, that never leaves office.
God says you shall reap a hundred folds.
This means that if you sow once, you reap a hundred times from that one seed.
When you make plans, don’t make small plans. You insult God with small plans.
He says “My cup runneth over.”
This means that when God pours into your cup, He does not stop even when your cup is filled up.
If you live your life by calculation, you will weep on the planet earth.
Everyone God made rich in the Bible, it was by Grace.
Learn the procedure today.
Jesus took our poverty, and gave us His riches.
He gave us all.
So when you take this basket home, you pick out whatever you want.
This means that there is no business that has barrier to you.
The Bible says whatsoever your hands find to do, do it and you shall prosper.
It is not the job that prospers you. It is your hands on the job that makes it prosper.
You have the grace of God on you. Whatever you lay your hands on, it begins to prosper.
There are people who are doing the business you believe make people rich, and they are stark poor.
It is not the location that empowers you. It is grace.
It is not changing location that empowers you. It is the grace at work in you that maketh rich.
Have you deliberately unclothed? Have you given Jesus all the curse and all the poverty?
That is where you start from.
Until you make yourself His son, you are outside the covenant.
Why are you labouring, when you can be flying high?
Some people are being unclothed from the garment of poverty. Some people are being clothed with the garment of glory.
ALTAR CALL OF SALVATION
Until you are the son of God, don’t claim His riches.
It is like someone going to an office and claiming to be Buhari’s son.
Get adopted first. Then you can get the name.
Now that you have stepped in, you are qualified.
Have you been in a situation where you face issues that you cannot handle.
And somehow you are getting comfortable with the adverse situation.
You can make a deal with God.
God was the one who limited Hannah when she could not have a child.
It was the Lord that shut up Hannah’s womb.
1 Samuel 1:5-6
It was the Lord that shut up the womb of Hannah. It was not the devil who shut up this one.
But how do you open what God has shut?
You do not have the authority to stop it.
How do you sign a deal with Jehovah and change His mind?
Have you laboured in vain financially?
The people who have it, do they have twelve heads?
You need to understand that God does deals with people.
How do you open what God has shut?
The woman went to God and said “I will make a deal with you.”
If you have been praying and it has not been working, you need to do a deal with God.
She asked for only one child.
When you cannot move ahead and you are limited and there is something you are believing God for, vow it to God.
He will give it to you. Return it to Him, and some other things will follow.
When you can unlock with God, the devil can no longer stop you.
What years of prayer could not handle, a deal with God handles.
That level in life that you want to enter and you don’t have ability to enter, it is a deal with God that gets you there.
Harvest does not need prayers. It comes to you.
When you pray for a long time and it does not work, you should know that prayer is not the answer.
