Come let’s praise the Lord 2x He is Jehovah (Tell the world of His faithfulness) He is El-Shaddai (Tell of world of His salvation) Spread the news around (Tell the world of His praise) Come let’s praise the Lord (praise the Lord). What a Mighty God we serve, alleluia 2x heaven and earth adore Thee, angels bow before Him what a Mighty God we serve. You are Mighty God, the great I am, alleluia alleluia!
Father, we thank You for another alleluia day in our life. Great is Your Faithfulness and Mercies unto Your children whose confident rest on you daily. Order my steps in your Word O Lord to do only Your will (Ps 143:10). Your will O Lord will I proclaim forever. Amen!
Beloved, yes! We ought to live an alleluia life as children of the Most High God. That was plan from the beginning that we hold fellowship daily with Him; that is also His plan at the end that we shout glory! glory!! glory!!! Alleluia! in the highest with four and twenty elders and all the numerous host of angels bow before the Throne and worship him that liveth for ever and ever (Gen 3:8; Rev 5:9-14).
Then do we asked ourselves what happened to this original plan of God concerning us? While do we live a praised less life? While are we full of murmuring instead praise? While do we allow the devil to deceive us and make us cold even in the midst of High praise.
It has happened to me and I also believe I have witness in the house. Instead of looking at the Mightiness of God; the devil bring to your face in bold prints that pressing need, instead of dancing and rejoicing to the rhythms of the song in worship, you are just moving your shoulder and feet reluctantly and be rehearsing the needs or challenging instead of the song. Do I have a witness in the house?
Beloved, after today that will be in the past and never again. We will begin to see God in every situation and ask Him for a way out every challenging situation. We will being to magnify God in every situation that weigh us down. We will being to praise God even when our head see no reason for such an act. Praise the Lord somebody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The acts of praise should be done from the deep of our heart though sometimes the heart is so full with worries and cares that there is a disconnect between the heart and the brain that gives impulse to the mouth to sing a melody other than a cry.
Praise gives us victory and command breakthroughs in our lives. It untie the knotty situations in our lives. It help us the scale walls and leap over mountains as we praise the King of kings, the Lion of the tribe of Judea.
Do I have a King Jehoshaphat in the house this moment, who at of fear proclaimed fast when he was confronted in a battle? A great multitude came against them and in that distress he called on God Who gave some strange instructions through Jahaziel “ fear not …go down against them… ye shall not fight in this battle; … stand still and see the salvation of Jehovah with you and it was according to the Word of the Lord (2 Chr 20:1-30)
He believed God, instead of arrows, javelins and spears for war, he appointed singers to sing praises to the One Who had given them victory though he is yet to see. And my God, O our God Who inhabits the praises of His people came down in glory to fight the battle for His glory and honour according to His Word. You know the rest of the story. The Lord set lier-in-wait against their enemies and slay them all. How?
We will discuss that after the first message:
“The trees of the Lord are full of sap.” Psalm 104:16
Without sap the tree cannot flourish or even exist. Vitality is essential to a Christian. There must be life—a vital principle infused into us by God the Holy Ghost, or we cannot be trees of the Lord. The mere name of being a Christian is but a dead thing, we must be filled with the spirit of divine life. This life is mysterious. We do not understand the circulation of the sap, by what force it rises, and by what power it descends again. So the life within us is a sacred mystery.
Regeneration is wrought by the Holy Ghost entering into man and becoming man’s life; and this divine life in a believer afterwards feeds upon the flesh and blood of Christ and is thus sustained by divine food, but whence it cometh and whither it goeth who shall explain to us? What a secret thing the sap is! The roots go searching through the soil with their little spongioles, but we cannot see them suck out the various gases, or transmute the mineral into the vegetable; this work is done down in the dark.
Our root is Christ Jesus, and our life is hid in Him; this is the secret of the Lord. The radix of the Christian life is as secret as the life itself. How permanently active is the sap in the cedar! In the Christian the divine life is always full of energy—not always in fruit-bearing, but in inward operations.
The believer’s graces, are not every one of them in constant motion? but his life never ceases to palpitate within. He is not always working for God, but his heart is always living upon Him. As the sap manifests itself in producing the foliage and fruit of the tree, so with a truly healthy Christian, his grace is externally manifested in his walk and conversation.
If you talk with him, he cannot help speaking about Jesus. If you notice his actions you will see that he has been with Jesus. He has so much sap within, that it must fill his conduct and conversation with life.
Do you have your tree full with sap? Or are empty and powerless? Without Jesus we can do nothing of our own. Nothing I said nothing!
Let the praise of the Lord be a sap in your bone this day. Let be too melodious even to the dying soul that it will spring back to life again. Praise the Lord.
The Lord set the enemies of Judea against themselves and they slay one another not one escape. I decree upon you today that everybody who called themselves your enemy will be slain one another, not one of them will escape. Even those who pretend to be friends while deep in their hearts they can do anything to see to your end, the angel of the Lord will smote them dead. Praise the Lord.
Who is he that the Spirit of God is say “fear not” concerning that issues of concern, the said is saying fear not, He has not given you the Spirit of fear; but of power, and of love and of a sound mind (2Tim 1:7). Engage the power of praise to be an overcomer of that seeming hard situation with the help of the ministering spirits.
Come let us see what the ministering Spirits have for us this day:
“Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” Hebrews 1:14
Angels are the unseen attendants of the saints of God; they bear us up in their hands, lest we dash our foot against a stone. Loyalty to their Lord leads them to take a deep interest in the children of His love; they rejoice over the return of the prodigal to his father’s house below, and they welcome the advent of the believer to the King’s palace above.
In olden times the sons of God were favoured with their visible appearance, and at this day, although unseen by us, heaven is still opened, and the angels of God ascend and descend upon the Son of man, that they may visit the heirs of salvation.
Seraphim still fly with live coals from off the altar to touch the lips of men greatly beloved. If our eyes could be opened, we should see horses of fire and chariots of fire about the servants of the Lord; for we have come to an innumerable company of angels, who are all watchers and protectors of the seed-royal. Spenser’s line is no poetic fiction, where he sings—
“How oft do they with golden pinions cleave
The flitting skies, like flying pursuivant
Against foul fiends to aid us militant!”
To what dignity are the chosen elevated when the brilliant courtiers of heaven become their willing servitors! Into what communion are we raised since we have intercourse with spotless celestials! How well are we defended since all the twenty- thousand chariots of God are armed for our deliverance! To whom do we owe all this?
Let the Lord Jesus Christ be for ever endeared to us, for through Him we are made to sit in heavenly places far above principalities and powers. He it is whose camp is round about them that fear Him; He is the true Michael whose foot is upon the dragon.
All hail, Jesus! thou Angel of Jehovah’s presence, to Thee this family offers its morning vows.
Are you singing All hail, Jesus with me now. Let us sing unto the Lord Who has won all our battles long before it confront us. Praise the Lord. Somebody!
Believe in your heart this week, you are scaling over your mountains and you are leaping over your walls. Alleluia!

We have so much package to move this ministry to the next level in the coming year God helping us.
I met a lady yesterday who was so embittered about her marriage which is about a year old though the relationship has been on for thirteen years. Hear her, according to her while chatting with a friend, they were sad about their marriage and the friend told her that she is going to engage in infidelity if she finds someone that worth it. Being moved by this development, I spent time to counsel her and believe God will help her and her friend to find help in Christ Jesus and I will still follow up.
Beloved, this and many more we encounter daily and we cannot but spend ourselves in the services of the Lord which gainful employment may not enable us the time and opportunity to save not only souls and also homes.
We constantly challenged but we look up to God to see us through. I trust God that someone will be touch to be a light to the world through this ministry by keeping us on on-line and also create a platform for career development center by next year. “not forgetting that an ideal mind is a devil workshop,”.
We want to give opportunity, to provide avenue to train men and women to be gainful empowered against the assault of the devil. Pray along and partner with us by your “giving” that God will bring this fruition. Amen!
