Blessed with Open Heavens + Decrees & Prayer

The LORD will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. Deuteronomy 28: 12

We discover from this beautiful verse that the heavens are God’s good treasures. Rich treasures are of no benefit to you if they are closed but the good news is THE LORD will open it to you and he did in Christ.

You have access all the time to come boldly to the throne of grace to obtain mercy and grace in times of need. Times of need are here on earth, so you need to access Heaven now.

Jesus said: “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6: 19-21

We know that earth is also a treasure but surrounded by dangers every day and is not secure like Heaven. Jesus is inviting you to lay UP for yourselves treasures in heaven where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break and steal it.

We understand from Ephesians 1:13 that God has blessed us.

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,”

In this verse, God is sending you the map location of your treasures. Let’s unfold this:

1-   The blessed God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who is blessed HAS blessed you. God is the initiator of your blessings and he already released it to you (HAS is past tense). Know that you will not be blessed, you are already!

2-   How much did God bless you with? “With every spiritual blessing”. He gave you his Son and with him everything! You are crazily rich (YES SAY IT). A spiritual blessing yet invisible is real. It is important to know the hidden form of your blessings to know what and how to download it.

3-   Where are your blessings hidden? “In the heavenly places in Christ”. They are in high places, in the God realm, hidden in a person, not in a box in heaven! Christ is your treasure, your portion and in him, there is everything you need.

Now that you know your treasure is in Christ who is in the heavenly places, you pray it down on Earth as it is in Heaven or your blessings will be forever floating in the spiritual realm. If you see it you can have it.

That’s why the Spirit of revelation is so important to know the things God has given to you. God gave you the Holy Spirit for a reason, not for a season! He is the revealer.

To wrap this up, God blessed you with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ. But Jesus also said you can lay up treasures in Heaven, in the spirit realm.

As a steward, are you increasing your skills for the Kingdom of Heaven? Are you laying up souls in the kingdom? You can deposit things and people in your heavenly bank account for the glory of God. It is both ways! Hallelujah

“And when he observed him, he was afraid, and said, “What is it, lord?” So he said to him, “Your prayers and your alms have come up for a memorial before God.” Acts 10: 4

The Store of God’s Blessings

Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! 2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: 3 Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, 4 Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercies, 5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. Ephesians 1

Christ is your blessings’ address, search no more. God’s blessings are abundant to you because Christ is the greatest store of the heavenly Father.

God can’t wait to bless you as it says in Isaiah 30:18 “Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!” As soon as the prodigal son came back to his senses and to a relationship with his father, he was met with blessings innumerable. He was overwhelmed by his father’s compassion, goodness, and restoration. God really did more than the prodigal thought of and asked for. That prodigal son was expecting some blessings, maybe, but it exceeded his expectations!

This is God’s heart for you. In Christ, you are restored into the garden of the trees of blessings. I see you walking among those blessings trees, inquiring of the Lord about them.

The next time you are reading your bible it is not going to be religious, it is going to be a walk among those trees of blessings. Things will be alive to you, a real substance, a Kingdom at hand to stretch for a pick, eat and be satisfied.

Breaking Demonic Altars

The only altar Yahweh wants to have us establish in our lives is his own altar. Altars are the only ancient spiritual transaction method linking realms together. God established this system and the devil knows it very well, do you know it? Are you aware of it?

As the umbilical cord to a baby, so is an altar to you. What are you connected to? Are you an entrance for the heavenly or hell?

Not many know about the transactions that happen through altars thus they are defeated or positioned for defeat. God wants you to know about this and you are reading this word today!

The first altar made in the spiritual realm was “the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” (Rev 13:8). I can almost touch the reality of it thinking about it. The LAMB ALTAR, Jesus Christ, the Son of God was the first holiest altar ever established by God and through that protocol, he licensed himself to enter our world “In the fullness of time” in his incarnation. You see my friend, altars are first built spiritually then at a certain point in your timeline you will see the manifestation of it.

Altars may be building up right now in the invisible world without your knowledge and at some point, it enters your world. The devil is not in a rush really, he is more mattered about succeeding than warring randomly. A sickness altar may be building secretly for you and maybe years later cancer shows up. Altars are the protocol, the ancient and only spiritual transaction method between realms, the invisible to the visible. The devil is a professional in the art of building altars in people’s lives, in regions, and the whole world. He knows the protocol, he thinks altars like God.

You can read in the bible the numerous stories and events concerning godly altars and demonic altars. You can learn the secret. In the Old Testament, a powerful and authoritative person has the key of the city, possesses its door of influence, and dominates the GATE.

“When I went to the gate of the city and took my seat in the public square, the young men saw me and stepped aside and the old men rose to their feet; the chief men refrained from speaking and covered their mouths with their hands; the voices of the nobles were hushed, and their tongues stuck to the roof of their mouths. Whoever heard me spoke well of me, and those who saw me commended me” Job 29

It is powerful when you possess the gate but real power is when you are a person of the altar. If you can create an altar first, then you can expect the outcome! What is the concept of an altar? A sacrifice.

  • Animal sacrifice
  • Words sacrifice (Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name.) Hebrews 13:15
  • Fasting
  • All sorts of giving and especially the sacrificial giving

(This is a non-exhaustive list. I am just showing you the sacrifice concept of the altar)

How do you break demonic altars? Mainly by making sure you are building your godly altars that will protect and enforce your domains but since we are not very active in this and since we have a ferocious enemy, altars may be built in our lives and we need to follow Holy Spirit to take them down immediately. If you are lazy in your generation to purge the atmospheres, rest assured these demonic altars would visit your children and the next generations. Altars don’t die, they are broken by Christ’s authority and a Holy Spirit led strategy.

One of the obvious things you are influenced by altars is a strong pattern, whether good or bad, a blessing or a curse. A sickness reoccurrence is a pattern, also being blessed financially continuously is a pattern. Patterns help you recognize the existence of an altar. Let us take a suicidal pattern in a certain city, or region, for example, this is an altar.

I love the story where King David sacrificed hundreds of animals every step of the way while bringing the Ark of the Covenant, the presence of God. What a great blood scene of sacrificing all these animals for the presence of God. A sacrifice determines the presence of a realm/being. David knew the protocol and he excelled in it. When you want the favor of a king you invite to your home, you give it all, from food to the finest clothing, etc.

Jesus is the greatest altar ever, there is no altar that matches him or overtakes and overrides him. You have conquered the devil by the blood of the Lamb. Jesus is God’s extravagance that only pleases Yahweh.

Lord, help us take down intruder altars in Jesus’ name. Amen

Navigating 2022 Through the Lens of the Holy Spirit

I was caught up to the throne realm of God, to the chamber of Authority, the true one God. Here is the scroll God extended to me concerning what we need to know about what’s coming.

What is coming has much to do with what you are creating. You can make 2022 happen, you have a dynamic role to play and call what doesn’t exist into existence!

I started by saying, I was in the chamber of Authority because this is what God wants to minister to us, to you and me, his authority, you are in CHARGE! Jesus in his earthly ministry was intentional every day, he prayed at night, downloaded Yahwah’s agenda for the next day, got up early in the morning, and went about doing good. Jesus wasn’t waiting passively for news to happen, he came to fulfill his Father’s purposes and complete it and he did!

Waiting at the gate of 2022, God wants you to enter in and make THINGS happen. Can you feel the authority? I just awakened it in you, it is there.

Creation is groaning and waiting eagerly for the manifestation of the sons and daughters of Glory. Creation groans for redemption! Your emerging is not passive but active, at will and at hand. Are you going to arise for his glory?

Make 2022 happen!

The FATHER is Rolling His Sleeves

Many think that God the Father is absent in times of trouble. God is invisible but not absent. Don’t think that for one moment, you are making the mistake of your life if you conclude to that. I know your problem is real, for many it is a dark pit and the hurt doesn’t seem to have some mercy on you and stop. You’ve gone through some time where you couldn’t breathe anymore, where your mouth withered and your words emigrated to a foreign land, where you were left alone with your tears in the dark. You’ve questioned God’s authentic promise of being ever-present with you, you felt your bones empty of hope and many fell into a spiritual coma because they can’t make it another day.

I see the FATHER, your heavenly Father, entering your ICU looking like a doctor. He sees you laying there and I see the elements in the room shaking because of the vibration emanating from his being. LIFE is here! I know it is hard to read this prophetic message, it doesn’t seem real to you anymore. But I need to deliver it and be true to what I am seeing, I am commanded by Him to release this word. I see the Father’s hand gently grabbing your hand as you are laying in your spiritual coma, Jesus is standing in front of the Father, on the other side of your bed. Something is about to happen …

I see the heaven opening over you, it looks like a circular portal swirling and you, the Father, and Jesus went up as 3 beams of laser light through that open portal. The room is empty now! What was that? What just happened? If you think I have a good imagination and I am writing a fictional story, reconsider because I am not. I am inside an encounter writing it down FOR YOU.

I see now the tomb of Jesus Christ; it looks like I am back in time. What happened at the tomb of Jesus? The Father came down.

“because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead, nor will you let your faithful one see decay.” Psalm 16:10

God is releasing right now over many LIFE ROBES, the Spirit of Resurrection and Life. Your name is written on one and he has not forgotten you.

I am back to the room where you were in a coma, I see a nurse freaking and questioning your disappearance.

You are no longer among the dead!

Mentoring

Jesus said to Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you burn with love for me more than these?” Peter answered, “Yes, Lord! You know that I have great affection for you!” “Then take care of my lambs,” Jesus said.

Knowledge puffs up while love builds up! Knowledge is important to feed the sheep, the followers of Christ, and the apostle Paul commanded his spiritual son pastor Timothy to study the word of God very close to show himself approved. But I believe love is the cornerstone for mentoring and pastoring. 

Jesus didn’t request from Peter to have knowledge first to feed his sheep, rather he was establishing the true heart behind it, neither did the Lord ask Peter, the apostle, and pastor to be if he loves his sheep, interesting right? Jesus asked Peter if he loves the owner of the sheep!

Loving the Lord is your authoritative license to feed his sheep. Why? Maybe because the sheep bite and at some point, you can throw the towel and leave and Moses is a good example of this struggle. Loving the Lord is ETERNAL and will keep you standing your ground to give him the rewards of his suffering. Doesn’t look bad if Jesus saved us, his precious souls, but couldn’t keep and nurture us after that glorious salvation? As much as the Lord wants to save you, he wants to build you up. As much as God needs evangelists, he desperately needs pastors and mentors. God always looks after the whole process and you have a part to fit. 

“The LORD used a prophet to bring Israel up from Egypt, by a prophet he cared for him.” Hosea 12:13 (Salvation & Caring)

Today, Holy Spirit is releasing his oil/anointing for you to mentor others in the things of the Lord and to make the King known to them. Having life coaching certificates, and prophetic degrees, and training, is all good and needed, go for it, invest as much as you can in this direction, BUT DO YOU LOVE THE LORD? … Feed his sheep.

I Know My Plans for You

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11  

Just like a good father who plans activities for his family on certain days to go out together, bond, and have fun, God is like that. He is YOUR GOOD FATHER in Christ Jesus. He has good things on his agenda for you already planned, blessings in store, waiting to be unlocked in the context of a relationship with him.

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10  

Knowing all this, and that God is Lord over my time, I started the practice of downloading God’s agenda for me. Little did I know that I’ve set myself up for ongoing amazements, surprises, and of discovering more and more the reality of the Lord and that He is Emmanuel, who indeed is God with me.

I printed the monthly calendars on an A4 size then I got home, excited to fill in the blanks with the God substance! I took the monthly calendar paper that just started, lifted a prayer asking God to rule and reign over it, and fill each day and hour with his goodness.

I asked the Lord to give me a title and verse for that month and so He did. Then I continued in prayer and looked at the blank days of that month before my eyes, and asked the Lord to highlight the days marked on his agenda for me. Slowly I began scanning each section and I marked the days I felt Holy Spirit was hovering on. After finishing my spiritual scanning, I stopped on each highlighted day and asked the Lord to give me a title for that day. He was faithful to download his headlines to me for each coming highlighted day that month.

That created a great expectation in me to see the fulfillment and the download of His goodness into His marked days. The days that weren’t highlighted didn’t mean they didn’t belong to the Lord. It is just that there are some specific days where the FATHER has planned something special for me.

“How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!” Psalms 139:17-18

If I write all my testimonies, the surprises, and the fulfillment of God’s agenda for me each month, I don’t think I will be able to keep this devotion short. But one of the remarkable things that happened to me that I can tell you about and I can’t forget is this incident:

I live an hour away from my family, and it is rare for my mother to visit me and if she does, it must be on a weekend. On a Monday, Mom called me.  She said she was passing by. I was surprised, and I told her, “Sure, it is always joyful to see you.” That Monday afternoon, Mama came, cleaned my little house, filled my fridge with all kinds of foods that last for a month, brought some accessories and decorated my rooms, and gave me money. I felt FULL on so many levels. I was so filled with gratitude to God and to her.

After she left back to our small hometown where she lives, the night fell and I spent some time with the Lord before going to bed, as I usually do. I forgot that day to check my calendar to see if that Monday was highlighted by the Lord. I grabbed the calendar, looked at the day, and to my shock I’d written at the beginning of that month this little title for that Monday: “MAMA’s BLESSINGS”. OMG! … I went crazy!

Happy downloading of God’s agenda for yourself!

The Release of GREAT Finances, Discerning Times & Seasons

There is a time for everything under heaven and now is the time SET by God to release empowerment for kingdom advancement. Finances are one of the avenues and tools used by God to help advancing his kingdom. Faith and obedience remain the number one stream for kingdom advancement because the just lives by faith and not by sight.

Why do I believe it’s time for the release of GREAT finances? Because many of God’s sons and daughters matured through the years and are now ready to receive that which God intended to release in Jesus’ name. It is an exciting day, not because we will see kingdom millionaires & billionaires like never before but because we will see the chariot of God’s kingdom advancing so strong!

What do you do when you discern times and seasons? You position yourself to receive and partner with God for what he is doing. If you feel the WITNESS for this word and want to engage with it, open up and let Holy Spirit touch you and deposit in you his empowerment.

Remember, GREAT finances are given for a reason and you need to be a good steward of it. Let everything praise the LORD, even printed papers that have an assigned value, money.

“that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.” Acts 4

Enlarge your bank account, money is coming alongside to help you manifest your kingdom vision. Glory to God! AMEN

How to Read the Word of God?

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1 

I am not a theologian to help you read the word of God. It is always amazing to consult professionals who put so much effort into studying a matter. Theologians do an effort to research and study the word of God and are of great help to us. But also experience is a very good master that helps you extract some guidelines and methods. 

“In the beginning was the Word”, the opening verse is simple yet deep. The word of God teaches us about the Word of God and how to do life with him. We see the importance of the word of God with the word “in the beginning”. God wants to show us what’s most important in the world. Reading the word of God starts by realizing that it is the beginning of the world and our world. Nothing happens without it, I mean nothing good happens without it. “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” Hebrews 11:3

“and the Word was with God”, the second person of the Trinity is in a relationship with the first person of the Trinity. The Word was WITH God! We understand here the psychology of the Word, the second person of the Trinity. Jesus loves relationships! The best way to read the word of God is in the context of a relationship with him. Are you in a consistent relationship with the Lord? Do you read God’s word because you are one with him or for other use? What is the motive force behind your reading? You can read it as a historian, or a doctor, someone looking for truth, someone who needs to be saved, maybe someone who needs a good promise? It is all good. But the best way is to be WITH him as he is WITH God. Jesus, the Word of God, opens up in the safety of a covenant relationship with you. Only a friend can entrust you with his deepest secrets, only a father can extend you an inheritance, etc. “No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, because all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.” John 15:15

“and the Word was God”, the attitude of worship, reverence, and submission are key to read and unlock the word of God. The Word was God! Approaching the word of God from this position opens up the portals of revelations over your life! “My flesh trembles in fear of you; I stand in awe of your laws.” Psalms 119:120

Acknowledging the importance, being in a relationship, and a heart of worship are some avenues that will bless the reading of the word of God in your life. Be in a good stand with the author of the bible and he will talk to you nonstop!

So How Did I Start Prophesying? 

For those of you who know me, you know that I am very active in prophetic ministry and I love it! For those of you who don’t yet know me, I want to tell you that I am a Jesus freak first and prophetic freak second. How did I come this far? It is all by the grace of God of course but it started years and years ago.

After I met this new “Jesus” that a Pentecostal friend told me about, I gave my heart to Him and became born again. This is when I started to really live; it was the new beginning I was longing for. There may be two reasons why people don’t experience salvation. The first reason may be the lack of someone telling them about the Lord, and the second reason may be some wrong misconceptions, doctrines, and teachings about this GOOD and beautiful Lord, this new “Jesus” who I met. Anyway, just after I became born again my eyes opened to the Bible, this spiritual book, in a new way I’ve never experienced before. The Bible has become the place I run to every day to meet the lover of my soul, learn more about him, and lay hold of his blessings to me that seem more accessible after becoming his. Not that unbelievers can’t receive from Jesus this is not what I mean! But as a son, the inheritance of my heavenly Father has become mine in Christ.

One day, I was reading in 1 Corinthians 14 these words:

But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouragement and comfort. Anyone who speaks in a tongue edifies themselves, but the one who prophesies edifies the church. I would like every one of you to speak in tongues, but I would rather have you prophesy.

I parked on that verse and started a conversation with myself by acknowledging that I already spoke in tongues so I was halfway there. I felt the invitation of the Holy Spirit to ask for the gift of prophecy because I wanted to be an encourager, comforter, and edifier to others. So, I prayed these words, “Lord, your word invites me to ask for the gift of prophecy to encourage others and edify them and I want that. It is also written that if I ask, it shall be given unto me and as I believe that I have received, it shall be unto me. I do ask you Father to give me right now this gift of prophecy in Jesus’ name. Amen”.

As soon as I finished lifting my prayer and sealing it with the amen, I knew the gift of prophecy was mine. Little did I know that God delighted so much in my prayer that it excited him to a point of giving me a tangible manifestation that I wasn’t expecting. I felt what appeared like HOT OIL coming down on my head, very hot to the point my head started itching so hard. It was a dramatic commissioning moment I won’t forget all of my life. I didn’t ask for this dramatic fiery hot oil anointing to be poured on my head but it was another gift on top of the gift I received. I know that the truth of the word of God is far greater than physical manifestations but Abba’s ways of encouraging us and defining our moments with him are amazing and so confirming!

The next day I woke up so excited because I knew I could prophesy to people. From that time till now, I have never stopped prophesying the love of God to people. What a journey it is with Holy Spirit and I trust him for greater things to come! The gift of prophecy is a grace to hear from Holy Spirit for others to encourage, edify, and comfort them. I believe this gift is a mix of faith and boldness because it takes faith to hear what God is saying and boldness to deliver it.

If the Lord is inviting you to partake in this gift, bring your dish now and fill your plate and if you feel him inviting you for something else, follow him. Whatever you’ve been given in the pages of the scriptures glorifies Jesus. Steward your gift well, invest in it, and live on the wings of risk, thrill, and eternal enjoyments. There is nothing more beautiful than to give someone dear to Jesus a GOD ENCOUNTER and you are this one!
