The prophetic office is sublime. Yes, it is very significant in the body of Christ, but there are pitfalls to avoid too! It is a grave fact that many prophets, mighty in words and deeds, have fallen as they were swept away by the wave of errors most of which could have been avoided if the men had prioritized intimacy with the Lord. The Scriptures are littered with such stories to afford us wisdom, comfort and hope in order to chart the right course, stay fresh in our calling and finish strong......

How would you measure a prophet? Most would answer, “The accuracy and fulfillment of his prophecies.” And what if you are a prophet yourself? How would you measure yourself? Accuracy of fulfillment? The frequency of your prophetic inspiration? The volume of public applause? Truth be told, while these parameters have formed the flawed plumb line of human judgment nowadays, God’s original standard concerning His servants as captured in the Scriptures remains unchanged: intimacy is the hallmark of a true prophet. In the New Testament, Mark records that Jesus called His disciples to......

In John 6:57, John acknowledged Jesus’ sense of mission by saying, “For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God …” (NKJV) This indicates that Jesus was possessed with the philosophy of a Sent One; hence, it would’ve been difficult and even impossible to get Him to do anything that was not directly connected to His mission. Then shortly before He ascended, Jesus said to His disciples and by extension, all believers: “… as the Father sent me, so I send you.” (John 20:21) Unfortunately, in pursuing our calling, many......

In Bible times, it was when the altars were developed that prayers that were prayed received feedback from heaven: God replied Noah’s sacrifice with the rainbow to signify His covenant of preservation. So, to describe an altar, we have to refer to the spiritual traffic that both leads to heaven and receives from heaven. That kind of arrangement is fellowship. Abraham built many altars in his lifetime, the first being the altar of consecration. It became a mark of undivided devotion to the will of God and it cost him a lot.......

Most of what you see that is responsible for what makes a great man in God is basically an encounter that an altar was raised around. Spiritual signals appear in faint and feeble forms, but when altars are built around them, they eventually begin to gain strength, capacity, shape, and structure, perhaps, many years later. That is how they are translated into reality in the earthly realm. Eternity is timeless; it is a realm of a perpetual continuum, an ‘eternal now.’ So, if you have the technology of trapping an encounter that......

The word ekklesia translated as “church” can best be understood within the context of kingdom and government. When the Babylonian army conquered a territory, they would take all the people that survive the slaughter to Babylon as slaves. But the Roman army had a different approach; it would not transport the slaves. Instead, it would send its ekklesia to the new territory that has been conquered. Bringing this home to the church of God, if the ekklesia knows and plays its role effectively in a territory, God can effectively move on earth......

One great deception in the body of Christ today is that a believer can live carelessly without any consequence. People who succumb to this deception merely raise questions about their understanding of why they were saved. Besides, while these people tend to defend their carelessness with their distorted view of the doctrine of grace and even expect God to put His seal of approval and protection on their prosperity, they end up being worse for it. In our dealings with God, we must always bear in mind that God is an Eternal......

Weights are burdens that drain the athlete’s strength and make them lose sight of the finish line. They dampen and quench the burning sense of urgency an athlete should have in keeping with finishing the course of the race. They make nonsense of the effort an athlete exerts on the track. Weights could assume different forms ranging from the human to the circumstantial. They include relationships that distract us from our God-given assignments, juicy favours that are inimical to our growth in God, commitments that demand that we be disloyal to God......

Besetting sins are simply sins that are powered by habits or natural tendencies that makes a saint most vulnerable. They could be negative genealogical traits passed on by demonic means down the natural family tree and/or strong habits cultivated before one got saved. Unlike weights which are mostly external, besetting sins are internally powered by an aspect of the fallen nature a saint holds dear and would not easily let go. Actually, in frustrating God’s work in a believer’s life, the devil uses besetting sins as his last joker. Besetting sins are......

Man that is born of a woman is of few days and prone to many errors in a lifetime. And among the errors to which man is prone, there is perhaps none other so grave as the error of seeking the Living among the dead. This particular error is evident of an existence without the Life that quickens and the inner Light that guides. As the flood of destruction receded from the earth, Noah sent out two birds that typified two kinds of Christians to check the habitability of the earth. The......
