Morning with Ebenezer


For nothing is impossible with God.

Luke 1:37 NLT

It is believed that Elisabeth, the mother of John the Baptist was 88 years old, when she bore John. The angel came to Mary who was a virgin, believed to be 12 or 13 years old. He said, she will have a son by the power of the Holy Spirit and his name will be Jesus.Then he added that, her cousin Elizabeth has become pregnant in her old age. The one who people used to say she was barren, but she has conceived a son and she was in her sixth month.  For nothing is impossible with God. [Luke 1:26-38]

God has been going against human expectations, knowledge and understanding since the beginning of this world. He took a man, Abraham from Ur of Chaldeans which is modern day Iraq and made him a father of many nations. He has been rising those who were counted as slaves to become kings, He lifts the poor from the dust, and the needy from the garbage dump. He sets them among princes, even the princes of his own people! He gives the childless woman a family, making her a happy mother. What a mighty God we save![Psalm 113:7-9]

Most of us when we hear and look God, we see Him as someone who is very far from our normal lives and daily chaos. That's why, when we commit sins, we dare to do them in darkness thinking that no one will be able to to see us! But we forget that darkness is not dark to Him, and the night is bright as the light of a day, darkness and light are the same before God, Psalm 139:12. He is big enough to fill the whole universe but also is small enough to live inside our hearts.

This morning, I want to remind you about the God who does the impossible. God who transforms water to wine, and the miracle is this, that wine will never become water again. The God who heals the broken hearted, the God deliver the righteous from all their struggles. The God of Jesus Christ, God who I serve, He has never failed me and I know, that the devil knows, that I know, that he knows God will never forsake me.

What seems to be impossible to you this morning? Are bills giving you a headache? That boss who makes you to be uncomfortable? Struggling with a disobedient child? Broken marriage or relationship? My God is able to do the impossible in your situation if you will choose to trust Him today. Stretch your faith, and believe for whatsoever you want Him to do in your life, and you will come back with the testimony.Shalom!

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Word. Lord please forgive me for where I doubted You. Help me to put my faith in your Word, that nothing is impossible to You. I remove the mountain which is before me in Jesus name, I declare and decree it's done! In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.

Romans 1:16 NIV

The rise of Roman Empire in 1 Century BC led to the development of great roads, which transported troops quickly from one place to another and assured good communication with the Roman provinces. During the 1900's the British television broadcast was made over the BBC radio transmitter in September 1929. Later came the discovery of internet began with the development of electronic computers in the 1950s. All of these were means of communication which were discovered for some political, social and economic reasons but the Gospel had it's way through it.

The roads which were built by Roman Empire helped the first Christians to spread the Gospel in the world of that day, from Jerusalem, Rome,Europe, minor Asia and some parts of North Africa. Later the discovery of Television brought forth great changes in the world, preachers such as Bill Graham, Oral Roberts, and many more used this media to bring the message of Gospel to the entire world which supported this media. Later the internet came, which made the whole world to be like one single village. The Gospel is still preached through it as ever before! The word which Jesus said that, the Gospel of the Kingdom must preached first before the end to come, now has become the reality before our own eyes.[Matthew 24:14]

While there people who when they wake up think about how they can use these medias such as internet for distorting moral values and justify sins. There are people in every part of the world, who think how they can send a message, post a video or even a picture which will remained every user out there that: Man is lost, he desperately need a Savior, he cannot save himself and he needs Jesus in his life. These people are being seen also in Television spreading the good news of Salvation to everyone who will believe.

This morning, God wants you to know that you are a part of this end time generation. God wants you to use this chance of development in science and technology to spread the good news of the Gospel. Gospel is the power of God which bring salvation to everyone who believes, first to the Jew,then to the Gentiles. More than half of all things which takes place on the internet are porn related stuffs, and only less than 15% is the Gospel. God wants you to change that ratio and to rise the percentage of Gospel related things on the internet that the lives of people can be changed.

This is your hour, God has directed you to read this message; because He wants you to be among of the people who will truly bring the Good News of the Gospel through this media of the internet. We preach that our brothers and sisters may get to know the truth, we don't want them to end up in the hell of fire. We pray, cry and plead for their souls, that they may know this Lord Jesus who has transformed our lives, gave us peace which surpass all understanding and the great joy of salvation in our hearts. Jesus is Lord, Salvation is the great gift which a mankind has ever been given by God. Shalom!

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Word. Lord I'm asking that you may forgive me for abusing internet media. Deliver me from any-kind of bondage in this area, help me to use social medias and all other ways of the internet in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

John 8:44 NIV

The native language of the devil is lies, since the beginning he used that language to deceive Adam and Eve. The Bible calls him as the one who deceives the nations, he is responsible even now in all the lies which are in the heads of people of this age. One of his sacred target are the people of God, the sons of the Kingdom, the Church of Jesus Christ in this world.

There are those words which he speaks daily in your mind. He daily come with the assignment of distorting the word of God which has been deposited in your heart by the strategic lies. He may come and tell you that you are not forgiven from a certain sin, and show you how that sin was so bad in the eyes of God. He maybe telling you that you are bad looking, you don't fit to be a  mother or a good father. Sometimes he may say you are not a good wife or husband and hence cause you to be insecure.

He may tell you that because of what has happened in your life, you have failed God, and you won't be able to walk in the same anointing which you once did. He may say that you won't be able to get a better husband or wife because you haven't been faithful before you knew the Lord. The words like, no one loves you, you are destiny to fail, you are such a joke and you will die before your time.

This morning, God wants you to stop paying attention to the devil chattering [idle, rapidly talk]. The devil will always whisper lies inside of you but all those lies will not stop or change the plan of God in your life. When God forgave you, He said, he will not remember your sins no more [Isaiah 43:25,Hebrews 8:12,10:17]; so you don't need to live in guilty of remembering how shameful, terrible or hurtful your sins where because God has forgiven you, and he will not remember them no more!

Maybe you have been struggling with your outside appearance, it may be your color, speech, facial appearance and even your shape. The devil has been filling lies to you that you don't look good, no one likes your shape and that's why you don't have friends. The good news is this, you have been created by the image and likeness of God, God loved you from the beginning and you are so precious before Him. You are beautiful the way you are, do not let the devil deceive you in any how. 

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Word. I refuse to continue being the audience of the devil's lies. Lord help me to keep hold on your Word and promises, I cover my mind, imaginations and thoughts by your blood. May you be God alone in my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.

Proverbs 23:7a NKJV

The Bible says clearly the way someone thinketh in his heart, so he is. There are many who were born to be kings but because they thought themselves as slaves, they found themselves serving as slaves. We are living in the world, where some men think themselves as women, and as the result they practice homosexuality which is abomination to the Lord of Hosts.[Romans 1:26-27,Leviticus 18:22,20:13]

There are those women who think themselves as men, and find themselves practice lesbianism.What a gross, what a shame! There is a famous saying which says all start in your mind. Weakness and greatness starts in your mind, sin and evil starts in your mind [heart]. When you change your way of thinking, behold your life will change.

When Joshua and Caleb went together with other 10 elders of the tribes of Israel to spy the land of Canaan, they brought report about the giants in the land. Their way of thinking were different when the saw the giants and hence their report came out different too. The first 10 elders saw themselves as grasshoppers in their own sight, and hence they were already defeated even before the war began. But on the side of Joshua and Caleb they did not concentrate in the greatness of those people but they knew the God who had been given them the land of Canaan will fight for them.[ Numbers 13-14]

This morning, God wants you to reconsider your way of thinking. You have become what you are right now, because of the way you saw yourself in the past. May be you subjected yourself in the group of rejected, that's why you experience rejection in your life right now!

I serve the God who changes situation, the God who calls things that are not as though they were, Romans 4:17. God who has gone in your future and came back to you and say peace be still, even in the future I will still be in the throne and be sure that all things will work together for good to you. God bless you.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Word. Lord help me to change my way of thinking, help me to that thinking as the way your Word commands me too. To think as they way You are thinking of me, I surrender my thoughts and plan in your hands. May your will be done.In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


Some people give much but get back even more. Others don’t give what they should and end up poor.Whoever gives to others will get richer [or blesses others will be refreshed]; those who help [satisfy] others will themselves be helped[satisfied]. People curse those who keep all the grain, but they bless the one who is willing to sell it.

Proverbs 11:24-26 EXB 

When young men or woman chooses someone to get marry with, most of the important questions which most of them ask themselves is, if that person is stingy[mean, penny-pinching] or not. There are those people who were taught that if you want to succeed in life, you need to focus on you and you alone before thinking about anyone else. They had, ''it's all about me'' mentality and as the result when they grew up, they had no room to share what they have with others.

In New King James Version, the Bible says, ''There is one who scatters, yet increases more. In other words we can say, this is a person who gives freely, but he find himself getting more. But there is another person who don't give what they should and end up poor. This shows that the more we give, the more room we create to receive and the more we withhold more than is right, we leave no room to receive anything.

You may be asking yourself why there are some areas in your life, where you see no increase. You have been praying for God to increase your finances, pay check and even a closet; but the heavens seem to be like a brass. But still there are some people who don't have education, opportunity and position which you have, yet they have prospered more than you in many areas of life.

This morning, God wants you to learn the formula of generously scattering abroad. God wants you to learn to give things to people, that you may given also. God wants you to learn to cast your bread upon the waters, that you may see it after many days [Do good wherever you go. After a while, the good you do will come back to you]. To learn to plant your seed in the morning, and don't stop until evening, because you don’t know if this or that will succeed. They might both do well.[ Luke 6:38, Ecclesiastes 11:1-6]

Some prayers about your finances will be answered immediately when you start giving your money for the Gospel and to help those who are in need. You will be able to get a man or woman of your dreams if you will stop being a stingy person. No man or woman wants to be married with someone having ''it's all about me mentality''. In the mean time you won't able to get into another dimension of blessing in your life, if you will not seed yourself out of it.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Word. Lord I'm asking that You may help me to have an attitude of giving, remove any kind of selfishness in me. Help me to live according to your Word. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


I was young and now I am old,yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken 
or their children begging bread.
They are always generous and lend freely; 
their children will be a blessing.

Psalm 37:25-26

The full life of David was 70 years, he was first anointed to be a king when he was 15 years old. He became a king when he was 30 years old, he ruled for 40 years as king. In Hebron he ruled as the king over Judah for seven years and six months. In Jerusalem he ruled as the king for thirty-tree years over all Israel and Judah.(2 Samuel 5:4-5)

In all these years and his experience as the king over Israel and Judah; David has never seen the righteous forsaken, or their children begging bread. He says these people they are always generous and lend freely, and their children will be blessed or in other translation says the name of their children will be used in blessings. [Genesis 48:20]

There is a time when God's people find themselves asking these questions: What will happen to me and my family in this present shaking economic system which we have? Do I will be able to live something for my children when am gone? Do I will have the same life which I have right now, when am old? What will happen to me if I will accidentally lose my job? All these questions are about our future, and these questions make some of  us to experience sleepless nights most of the time.

This morning, I have a good news for you. God was there yesterday, His is here now and He will be there tomorrow too! He was there when you were young, He is here with you right now and He will be with you in your old age. Like the way he will walk with you and cause you to be a blessing to others, it will be the same to your descendants after you. No one will lack bread, no one will live the life of shame; and if you committed your life full to Him and the generation after you, be sure He will remember them for your sake.

God is faithful, His promises in Christ Jesus are Yes and Amen! Whosoever believes in Him will never be put in shame. You won't be put in shame, even if the all hell broke loose on you. He will provide for your needs, your children and all people who depend on you. He will bless you that you may be a blessing, keep trusting in His name, Jehovah Jireh your provider.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Word. Lord I thank You in advance that you have met all my needs, the needs of my children and all who depend on me on the circle of my influence. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


Anyone who hates a fellow believer is a murderer. And you know that no murderer has eternal life. This is how we know what real love is: Jesus gave his life for us. So we should give our lives for each other as brothers and sisters.

1 John 3:15-16 ERV

In a course of life, there are people who came in our lives and caused harm in our way. There are people who were the cause of pain, who shutdown our dreams and scattered abroad our efforts to achieve our goals in life. We met some of these people in churches, who said hurtful words and causes us even to leave some churches and stay away from some fellowships.

In Easy to Read Version [ERV], My Bible says anyone who hates a fellow believer is a murder, which it the same with Amplified Bible and Expended Bible which both focused in a body of believer just like in Easy to Read Version. Like in Amplified it says, ''Anyone who hates his brother in Christ is a murder''; while in Expended Bible it says, ''Everyone who hates a fellow believer is a murderer''. In Expended Bible it gives reason why we call those persons murderers? it says because they have killed that person in their hearts, Matt 5:21-26.

Those who hate someone have in their mind the same motive that causes murder. In the church of today, we have many folks who don't love each other that much, they think that loving God is enough even if they will be hating some folks inside of them. That's why we have rivals in the body of Christ right now! Associate Pastors against Senior Pastors, singers against solo singers, denominational ministers against non-denominational ones.

This morning, God wants you to loose that hate. God wants you to let it go and move on from whatsoever happened to you in the past. Continue holding hate against anyone in your life right now is like keeping a brand of fire inside your pockets. Eventually that hate will consume you and leave you with no sense of joy inside of you. Forgiveness is the key which will set you free from the prison of hate.

You can choose to continue holding that person or you can choose to let him go and focus on what God has in store for you. Either one has consequences, if you will choose love to reign; it will lead you to your total freedom from hate. But if you will choose hate, it means you will continue locking yourself in that prison of bitterness for the rest of your life. And if you die in that state of unforgiveness, in the judgement day you will placed  in the same group with murders. The choice is yours!

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Word. Lord I'm asking that You may give me strength to forgive whosoever hurt me in the past. Lord help me to loose the hate which I have been holding inside of me. I refuse to continue being prisoner of hate; I allow your love to flow from the soles of my feet to the top of my brain. I declare and decree that it's done! In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


That evening people brought to Jesus many people who had demons inside them. He spoke and the demons left the people. He healed all those who were sick. So Jesus made clear the full meaning of what Isaiah the prophet said:“He took away our disease and carried away our sicknesses.”

Matthew 18:161-17 ERV

Isaiah lived 740 years before Christ [8th century BC], He saw all things concerning Jesus who will come in the future and change the history of the world. Bible scholars call Isaiah the Eagle  eye prophet, his vision was accurate,precise, and perfect and he could see things yet to come. Eagle have perfect vision and they could see things a far off. God gave Isaiah to see far to the end of this world; and God showed him what also happened before the existence of human race. He saw the what Jesus will do, he saw the victory which this man will bring. The victory against all kind of sickness, weakness and diseases.

When demons saw Jesus from a far, they began trembling and seek the place to hide! There were no place for them because Jesus was the light of the world. Every where they tried to go and hide, the light which was inside Jesus was more than enough to discover their evil ways. Later before he went to the cross, Jesus said, If will believe in him and the works which he did, we will do what he did and even more than what he ever did because he was going to the Father [ The Holy Spirit would come after him, to enable and empower us to do his work]

There are some of us, who have been facing some common problems and repetitive things from generation to generation. They are some who have been bound by the spirit of poverty, some our grand parents died from cancer, our parents the same and now we also face the same threat! Other it is divorce, some find themselves settle in marriage after being married twice or more. Having early pregnancies in the family, and inability of keeping friends which started with your mother and now it is affecting you too!

This morning, I want you to stand and tell the devil, Wait a minute! It's true that I was once lost in sin, but Jesus took me in. I know that my mother lost her virginity when she was 15, so do I. But I refuse to allow my children to have the same experience, in the name of Jesus. They will save themselves for marriage, period! I know that in our family we have been battling with asthma, but because I'm born again Christian, and my Bible says,'' He took away our diseases and carried away our sickness''. From this day, I declare that me and my whole family we are asthma free in the name of Jesus.[ whatever spirit of disease bounded you]

You need to know that the enemy can't kill you. The time he will try to Google [search] your name and information in his search engines. He will only find, The Blood, The Blood, The Blood!  When he go to click images, he won't see anything but the blood of the spotless lamb which was shed for your sins. This blood of Jesus will never lose it's power! The good news is this, your present and future have been hidden in the blood; walk with confidence today while knowing Jesus has done it all.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me and God is going to answer you prayer....

Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Word. Lord I'm asking that You may help me to speak your Word over my life. To confess your promises, to walk by faith and not by sight. To speak life instead of death, light for darkness, victory for defeat, joy for mourning, praise instead of spirit of heaviness and beauty instead of ashes. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


When the 72 followers came back from their trip, they were very happy. They said, “Lord, even the demons obeyed us when we used your name!”
Jesus said to them, “I saw Satan falling like lightning from the sky. He is the enemy, but know that I have given you more power than he has. I have given you power to crush his snakes and scorpions under your feet. Nothing will hurt you.

Luke 10:17-19 ERV

In the Luke chapter 9, we saw the Lord sent the 12 disciples on a mission. He gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. He sent them to preach about the Kingdom of God and heal the sick. So the apostles went out. They traveled through all the towns. They told the Good News and healed people everywhere, Luke 9:1-6.

Later in chapter 10, Jesus sent 72 out of his followers. He sent them out of groups of two[ One can chase a thousand, two can put ten thousand to flight]. When the 72 came back they were very happy and said, “Lord, even the demons obeyed [submit to] us when we used your name [ in your name]!” Then the Lord said, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven [ symbolically in the exorcisms (casting out of Satan from heaven)]; Is. 14:12; Rev. 12:13].

Jesus gave the power and authority over the enemy to his disciples who later became the first church in the day of Pentecost. This power and authority has been given to everyone who believed in the name of Jesus since then! By the mention of the Name of Jesus every devils which oppressed the people of God were cast out and flee from the bodies of believers. In other words the devil obeyed the believers we they used the name of Jesus, what a joy!

This morning, God wants you to know that He has been given you the same power and authority over the enemy the day you believed. The power over all 39 kinds of diseases, the authority over all types of demons and their functions. The power to live the victorious life in Christ, to overcome sin and reverse every kind of curse which is upon your life.

The devil obeys me, because I'm in Christ Jesus. The devil will obey you too, if you will submit your life to the Lord. God is faithful, He will do according to his word when we choose to obey Him first, He will force the devil to obey us too. As Paul the Apostle said in Romans 16:19-20,'' For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil. And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly.''

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Word. Now I know that the devil obeys me by mention of your name. Help me to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil. That you may crush Satan under my feet soon.In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.

Isaiah 41:10 AMP

I remember some years ago, I gave the above verse to one of my relatives who wanted to go back to school. He wanted to finish his high school education and then go to college. He had no money during that time and the person who used to support him had just told him that he will no longer be able to support him because he was not well financially. When he told me the whole situation, I encouraged him not to fear; because God was going to provide a way for him and he will finish his Bachelor Degree one day.

Two years later, he came to me and told me that he was preparing to finish his high school education and soon he will be going to University. He said that person who was supporting before, called and asked if he can support him again because his finances was stable this time. To make the long story short, this brother finished high school and went straight to one of the leading University in our country and he finished his Bachelor Degree two years ago, Glory to God!

The word fear not is mentioned 365 times in the Bible. Each ''fear not'' is representing one day in a year, it means in each new day there is a fear not for you. No matter what you will be facing in that particular day, God has prepared the fear not for you in advance, Hallelujah! This makes all the children of God to walk with boldness while knowing that all things are under God's control.

This morning, I have a word for you. Fear not, when the enemy comes to you like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him, Isaiah 59:19b. When the enemy tries to strike you with diseases the Lord will come with his total healing; when the enemy comes to take away the peace in you by bringing people who will offend you, my Bible declares, ''Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.''[Psalm 119:165]

You don't need to fear who will be your husband or wife; God has prepared one for you since the day you were born [Genesis 24:1-67, Proverbs 19:14]. You don't need to fear what tomorrow will look like because God has already been there! God is Alpha and Omega, who declares the end before the beginning may His name be praised, Amen and amen! Fear not, God is in control over your life; the enemy and his hosts has no chance to harm in anyhow if you will submit your life to Jesus today.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Word. I refuse to live under any kind of fear in my life, help me to walk in boldness and assurance that your Word is true. Give me peace which surpasses all understanding that my life may be used as the tool of your praise among the nations of this world. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


The people found Jesus on the other side of the lake. They asked him, “Teacher, when did you come here?”
He answered, “Why are you looking for me? Is it because you saw miraculous signs? The truth is, you are looking for me because you ate the bread and were satisfied.

John 6:25-26 ERV

Jesus had just fed 5000 people on the previous day by five barley of loaves bread and two little fish. The next day people came back to look for him, while Jesus knowing their thoughts. He answered, “Why are you looking for me? Is it because you saw miraculous signs? The truth is, you are looking for me because you ate the bread and were satisfied. These people came to Jesus not because they believed that he came from God through the signs and wonders which he performed; but because he fed them and they wanted more food from him.

There are so called give me bread Christians, who come to Jesus not because he is the Savior of the world and they want their sins to be forgiven but for the sake of bread. These are the ones who want the blessings but they don't want the one who bless. You will hear them saying: Please pray for me that I may get a new boyfriend or girlfriend, new pair of shoes, new car, or that I may get a trip to abroad. I don't say that praying for these things is bad, but I want to tell you that there is more than a fish and a bread in Christ Jesus.

This morning, I have a word for you. There is more than physical blessings in Christ Jesus, it is not bad for us to eat the fat and drink the sweet[ Nehemiah 8:10]; but the plan of God for our salvation is beyond that! Jesus came to save us from sin, to cleanse us from all unrighteousness, to set us free from bondages, and to give us the assurance of eternal life when we leave this mortal body.

Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul; and all that is [deepest] within me, bless His holy name![Psalm 103:1] God has done great things in me, I know he can do for you too! I'm among of billions who have been touched by his tender mercies. He is the God who was, and is and is to come. He is worth to be praise by his saints who are in the land.

His mercies are new every morning, great his faithfulness, Lamentations 3:23. This is the time of refusing being a give me bread Christian; and to ask Jesus to Open up the sky, to fall down like rain, we don't want blessings we want him. To open up the sky to fall down like fire, we don't want anything but him.[Deluge, Open up the sky]

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Word. Lord I refuse to be a give me bread Christian, I want to know you so deeply that I may be able to do what your word says I will do, to live the way your Word says I will. And to experience all what you have in store for me according to your plain in my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Matthew 11:28-30 KJV

My Bible says that, ''all have sinned and come short of the glory of God'', Rom 3:23. We were born sinners, we have been sinning since then and nothing could help us to overcome our sinful nature in anyhow. When we got our understanding, we came to know the love of our souls, the savior of the world Jesus Christ who takes away the sins of the world.

This man called Jesus conquered the grave, overcame sin, death and on the third day he rose up from the bell of the earth and ascended to heaven. This brought peace between the lost mankind and God. This is the one who can fix the life of anyone, because he has conquered the source of all problems of human beings which is sin.

There are some people out there who claim that they can fix the lives of others by using the wisdom of this world, which the Bible says is foolishness before God, 1 Corinthians 3:19. It's true these people can help you to feel good and give you ways to help you to become a better person; but they can't help you to solve all of your problems and overcome the source of all your worries but Jesus can!

This morning, God is inviting you to come to his Son that your life may be fixed. He wants you to stop looking in the help of a men because is subjected to limitations. Men can be with you during a day, and in the night hours all of them will fall asleep because of the tedious day. But God never sleeps nor slumbers, Psalm 121:4. He will be with you in your darkness night and fight against all who come against you. He will be with you in the bright of a day and showing you the path of life.

Jesus fix my life. Jesus forgive me for all my sins, Jesus help me to be more like you. That should be your prayer this morning. He fixed the lives of many for almost 2013 years now, and  I'm among of them. He has not retired, He still doing what he started there on the old rugged cross. Trust your life to him today, and you will never regret in all the days of your life.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Word. Lord I'm asking that you may come into my life, fix all the broken parts in me. Change me from inside out, make  me to become a new creature. Heal me from my past wounds ooh Lord. I need you now more than anything else Jesus! Come and make my heart your home. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Matthew 5:13-16 NIV

A micro-message is a small, sometimes unspoken and unconscious message that is sent  and received to one another through our behaviors many times a day. They called ''micro'' because the behaviors are small, although their their impact can be enormous. They are divided into two groups: Microinequaties and Mircoadvantages. Micro-inequities are micro-messages we send other people that cause them to feel devalued, slighted, discouraged, or excluded. Micro-advantages are micro-messages that cause people to feel valued, included, or encouraged. 

These micro-messages has both build up and damage many relationships in business, homes, and in the churches too. People sent these messages to others in daily basis without even being aware that in the long run they cause permanent damages to the receivers. For example in some churches, rich people are being given first priority with Pastors and church leaders compared to the poor ones. This led to the divisions in our churches, and some people to feel devalued and excluded in important decisions making in our churches.

Jesus called the church as the salt of the earth. Like the way food without salt will have no taste, it the same to this world, without the church to stand in her position, this world will be the living hell. Christians were intended from the beginning to bring changes in every aspect of life; to be light to the darkness, strength to the weak, to love the unlovable, and to do good deeds to all people regardless of our differences.

This morning, I want to encourage you to use the micro-advantages. I want to challenge you to walk in the original plan of God for the church of being the salt and light of the world. It is the will of God for you to make people feel valued, included, and encouraged in every place which God will allow you to go. It is the will of God for you, that people may see Jesus through you. We need people who will have the spirit of Barnabas [son of encouragement, Acts 4:36] inside of them.

We have hurt many people for our micro-inequities, in most cases we took the place of God for judging others according to our own standards. This is wake up call for us, that we need to let that Barnabas in us to take control. We need to be the source of joy and encouragement for others, knowing that God will work with us, as He did with the disciples and confirming our work by signs and wonders which will accompany us.[Mark 16:20]

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Word. Lord please forgive me where I hurt my loved ones and all people who in the circle of influence through my micro-inequities. Lord help me to use micro-advantages from this day forward till the day of your coming. Help me to walk in your original plan in my life, to be the salt and light to my world. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


But you, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the Book until the time of the end. [Then] many shall run to and fro and search anxiously [through the Book], and knowledge [of God’s purposes as revealed by His prophets] shall be increased and become great.

Daniel 12:4 AMP

Many Bible commentaries have written about this passage of scriptures. I will share what the Lord has put inside of me to write today. We are living in the age where all Bible prophecies are being fulfilled before our own eyes. According to the great Bible Prophecy teachers of our time such as Grant Jeffrey and Perry Stone; the say there have been fulfillment of the most of the Bible prophecies in our time that all centuries in combine! Starting with the birth of State of Israel in May 14, 1948, [Amos 9:14-15, Ezekiel 37:10-14, Isaiah 66:7-8].

The Angel told Daniel to shut up the words and seal the Book until the time of the end. The angels was trying to tell Daniel that what was written in his book was the things of the future; which could not be understood in the Daniel times because many things would take place in the later days. He continued and said, many shall run to and fro, meaning many shall pass up and down to the world, or shall go from place to place, to search for the truth of the word of God and to bring the knowledge of Jesus Christ to the nations of the world.

He continued  saying,'' And knowledge shall be increased and become great''. Here the angel meant that there will be the great increase in the knowledge on all subjects of the Gospel and salvation, and spiritual things. We are seeing now that many great men and women of God are rising, and helping the church to understand the mysteries which are hidden in the word of God. The Gospel is being preached to the whole world in the way which the earth will be filled and covered with it, as the sea with its waters, [ Isaiah 11:9].

This morning, God wants you to know that we are living in the end times. He wants you to understand that all what has been written in the scriptures concerning the second coming of Christ and the rapture of the church are true. These are times which the Spirit of the Lord has been poured to all the flesh, which will cause our sons and daughters to prophesy, old men to dream dreams, and our young men to see visions.[Joel 2:28-29]

You have been chosen to live in this generation, God has a purpose for you. Keep walking by faith and not by sight. Lift your eyes on him who is the author and finisher of your faith; and not on things of this world which are subjected to destruction. God is in control over your life, His is the God of unseen things[ things yet to be created and generation yet to be born]. He is the great and mighty God, the God who work wonders! Him alone is God.[ Psalm 86:10]

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Heavenly Father, I thank You for your Word. Lord I'm asking this morning, that You may use me in these last days for the glory of your kingdom. Help me to be the good messenger of your truth which has been revealed by your Son Jesus Christ in me, to all people in my circle of influence. I refuse to be lagged behind in all matters concerning You Lord. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Morning with Ebenezer


After Jesus said this, he was lifted up into the sky. While they were watching, he went into a cloud, and they could not see him. They were staring into the sky where he had gone. Suddenly two men wearing white clothes were standing beside them.They said, “Men from Galilee, why are you standing here looking into the sky? You saw Jesus carried away from you into heaven. He will come back in the same way you saw him go.”

Acts 1:9-11 ERV

Apostle Peter wrote in 2 Pet 3:4, that it will reach a time when some ungodly people will arise and question the promise of Jesus second coming,''They will say, "Where is this 'coming' he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation." Then Peter continued and said the former world was destroyed by water [ in the days of Noah], but this present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.[v.5]

Peter said,''To the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is like a day.  He said that God is not being slow in doing what is promised, but he is patient with us. He doesn't want any of us to be lost, but everyone to come to repentance, [v.8-9]. Peter was encouraging the church which was suffering persecution in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, western Asia Minor and Bithynia.

Those men wearing white clothes in the sky [angels], confirmed the words of Jesus which he said in his earthly ministry that he will come back. First he came as the humble servant, and people had the right to ignore or accept him; but in his second coming he will come as the Kings of kings and Lord of Lords! Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord in the glory of God the Father.

This morning, God wants you to continue trusting upon his Name. He wants you to continue sanctifisies yourself[to set yourself apart, to make yourself holy] knowing that in the hour which you don't know ; the son of man will come in this world. He will come to take the pure and spotless church; God needs you to be among of them. The choice is yours!

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Jehovah God, I thank You for your Word. Lord I'm asking that You may help me to put my faith on your Word. Help me to prepare myself for your second coming in each new day of my life. Thank You for loving and saving me. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
