KNOWLEDGE OF SPIRITUAL GATES/DOORS IN OUR LIVES: THEIR EFFECTS AND HOW TO DEAL WITH THEM. by Mama Diana, Christco

Scriptures:- Matthew 16:18 “and I also say unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock, I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” John 10:10 “the thief cometh not, but to steal, and to kill and to destroy, I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly” Matthew 11:12 “and from the days of john the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence and the violent take it by force” Introduction:- A standard gate is usually a dual/double-leaf or single-leaf moveable barrier hinged to a fence or wall, which opens or shuts to grant or deny access to persons animals or vehicles. In the simplest sense, it is a barrier designed to lock friends, in, and enemies out.  Gates are erected to control entry and exit into a house, block of apartments, office complex, city, institutions town, estate, animal pens, car parks, sports stadiums, entertainment venues national parks, military garrisons, power and water plants airports, seaports, country …

Protecting the Altar

The reason why God judged Eli is not because he didn’t rebuke his sons but because he allowed them to continue in their service in the house of God. As a High Priest in the House of God , he had the full privilege to appoint and also demote. If his sons were doing wrong, the right thing he could have done is to put them on the bench to learn like any other . The same honor you give to God is what He will give you, the same respect you give Him is what He will give you, if you fail to honor the altar of God , because of pity or because the person is your relative or your wife but you know very well they are doing things not pleasing to God, the Lord will judge you. It reaches a time as a servant and even as a Pastor in the congregation, you are called not only to defend but to protect the Altar of God at all cost. If there …

Miracle Verses Direction

Sometimes our breakthrough is not in prayer but in direction. Our generation today want a now miracle but there are miracles that will require you to go to the pull of Siloam to wash your face. Washing your face in Siloam can also mean washing your hypocrisy. Sometimes our level of hypocrisy prevent us from receiving what God has readily prepared for us . Because our face is full of hypocrisy, even when He want to bless us he can’t . We have to go to the pull of Siloam, wash away every guilt, every doubt, every disobedience, every scale in our eyes, every faithlessness, every stubbornness, every rudeness , every arrogance , every self ambitions , every bitterness, every pride, every insincerity, then we shall receive a miracle. Sometimes we are too chaotic to receive something from God. There are people whom Jesus healed instantly but their are people He gave them homework to do to experience their miracles. Don’t get mad when a servant of God give you homework to do instead of …

The Glamour of Sex

The Devil has glamorous sex to our generation but he has not glamorous the number of sick people in the hospital because of it , people who have died because of it , lives that have been paralyzed because of it, destinies that have been cut off because of it, crowns that have been lost because of it. In U.S.A sexual overtone is the order of the day , there is a pressure for the younger generation to be sexual , to be sexually appealing in all manner : these includes the way they dress , the way they look e.t.c Many youths today barely walk naked on the streets , some with underwear because of sexual overtone the society is feeding them : the media , the TV , the worldly celebrity e.t.c. They think they can achieve all they want through the power of sex. Indeed God made sex to be powerful either to destroy you or to build you when used properly as purposed by Him and Him alone.There are many people …

Spending Time in His Presence

Matthew 14:23 And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, Praise and glory be to the Mighty God of heaven and earth . If you want to gain faith and your faith to grow , you must learn to spend time in the presence of God . There is moments that you have to separate yourself from the crowd to that quiet moment with the Lord and the Lord alone . There is the crowd that their purpose is to drain what you already have , there is a crowd of people who will discourage you in your attempt to fulfill the will of God but when you spend time with God , what seems impossible will be possible . Many a times we cannot understand people of faith because we are not familiar with their lifestyles. There is something that happens in you every moment you enter into the presence of God. There is always a new impactation, …

False teaching behind the spirit of Elijah

There is a church that have been waiting for the spirit of Elijah to save them but why the spirit of Elijah when Christ has left us His Spirit? The spirit of Elijah is man but the Spirit of Christ is God. The Voice speaking at this hour is not the spirit of any Man but the Spirit of Christ that dwells in the hearts of those who believe the Gospel. If you are in a church where the emphasis is the spirit of Elijah rather than the Spirit of Christ, then know for sure you are lost !!! Christ did not come to build empires of men but He came that we may have a relationship with God . Yes personal relationship with God where Him himself dwells in our hearts through His Eternal Spirit by faith. If you are waiting for a spirit of man to save you, you are in a hot trouble . No spirit of man will take you to heaven but they Spirit of Christ if you walk with …

Wisdom Problem

Wisdom Problem: Proverbs 7:7 And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding.. Wisdom problem makes a young man who is single go to visit a single lady living alone in the house without expecting a fall into sexual sin and immorality. Wisdom problem makes a young lady visit a man living alone in their own private apartment or house but expecting to come out a virgin out of that . Wisdom problem makes a young lady mostly in college to attend wild parties , where they drink until they loose it out but wake up that they were raped in the morning . Then begin looking for society to pity them and punish their rapist . O our society today is suffering from wisdom problem .The know it all behavior of the mindset of our generation have made them fall into deep ditches and many problems that could have been easily avoided .Don’t think you are too smart than you are !! Avoid all form of …

Maintaining the Anointing

I pray servants of God that you may bring a strong teaching how children of God can maintain the presence of God after receiving it .It seems like many are receiving the anointing but not maintaining it .Yes receiving the power is good but without a life of discipline and self denial you won’t maintain it . It would be like pouring water on a bucket with holes .Jesus received the Power and is first mission was the wilderness where He wrestles with Devils , surrounded with wild animals, tempted by Satan and learnt to trust in the Lord and the Lord only for his protection . Mark 1:12-13 The Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. And he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild animals, and the angels were ministering to him. Some of us we receive Power and we want to run to the field unprepared only to return back deeply defeated .The Disciples were able to keep the power because they …
