TOPIC: CHARACTER – A PILLAR OF DESTINY
SCRIPTURE: And Samson went and caught three hundred foxes,”and took firebrands, and turned tail to tail, and put a firebrand in the midst between two tails. Judges 15″:4
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Characterlessness is the reason for destiny collapse; where your character stops,”there your destiny ends.
Several years ago, I came across a study on the animal called Fox. When the Scripture says that Samson caught three hundred foxes and put fire on their tails and sent them into the standing corns of the Philistines to set it on fire, I became curious and asked, why the fox? Then I realised that the fox is a member of the dog family. The dog family comprises the domestic dogs, the bears, the wolves, the jackals, the dingoes and other dogs. Among all the members of the dog family, it was the fox Samson chose for the assignment. And then I realised that apart from intelligence, the fox has integrity, higher integrity than the domestic dog. The fox has a solid character; it behaves like the eagle. The character of the fox is one reason it was used for that assignment.
Beloved, if you must carry out an assignment for the Kingdom of God; if you must rise from the pit to the top, you need the solidity of character. Characterlessness is the reason for destiny collapse; where your character stops, there your destiny ends. It doesn’t matter the potentials you carry, where you lack character, you lack destiny. That was the challenge of people like Reuben, Judas Iscariot, etc. in the Scripture.
I counsel you to always make up your mind to develop a strong and solid character in order to have a strong and solid destiny.
Remember this”: Characterlessness is the reason for destiny collapse; where your character stops,”there your destiny ends.
1. Make up your mind to fulfil the Divine mandate on your life.
2. Develop a solid character that can accommodate your destiny.
PRAYER: O Lord,”I ask for the grace to fulfil Your mandate on my life. I receive Your help to develop a solid character that will accommodate my destiny, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Whenever your name is mentioned in your absence,”what comes to people’s mind – a prostitute, seducing spirit, Jezebel, Judas, thief, liar, proud man, cheat, trickster, or a criminal? That which comes to their mind is what determines your destiny. Whatever comes to the mind of people when your name is mentioned is either assisting or resisting you.

AMAZING FACT”: A Lion’s roar is the loudest of any big cat’s and can be heard from as far as five miles (8 km) away.

PROPHETIC WORD: Receive the grace to escape the plague of characterlessness in Jesus’ Name.

[4/5, 7:40 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: *RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL*
*MAKE THE RIGHT CONFESSIONS .*
*Sunday, April 5th.*
*Take with you words, and turn to the LORD: say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously: so will we render the calves of our lips (Hosea 14:2).*
Words are so important. As a matter of fact, words are everything. Every time you speak, you shape your life and future; you chart your course. You’re the product of your words. Therefore, it’s up to you to chart your course for a greater and brighter future, with your words. Don’t talk to promote the problems and difficulties you’re facing; declare your victories. Have the right words in your mouth.
You may have read the inspiring story of the Shunammite woman in 2 Kings 4:8-36. Even though her son had died, she hurried off to the Prophet Elisha with only one declaration on her lips, “It is well.” She wasn’t screaming for help or complaining; rather, she went to the prophet of God with the right confession, and she got a miracle. She didn’t speak on the basis of her situation; rather, she spoke in agreement with God. The Bible says in Isaiah 3:10 DRB, _*“Say to the just man*_ (the righteous) _*that it is well….”*_
Jesus said in Mark 11:23 that you shall have what you say; the woman said it was well, and her confession produced results. Choose always to make the right confessions. Meditate on the Word to help you form the right mind-set, because before you can talk right, you must first think right. God’s Word renews your mind and produces faith in your heart.
This is why you must constantly fellowship with the Word. Colossians 3:16 says to let the Word dwell in you richly; let it gain the mastery in you, and out of that abundance, you’ll speak (Matthew 12:34). The Word on your lips will prevail and catapult you to higher levels of success, victory and prosperity.
God already ordained your triumphant and victorious life; your role is to respond by affirming the same things in consent (Hebrews 13:5-6). Even now, affirm that you have a great life. Acknowledge and declare that you’re excellent and full of glory, living the life of righteousness, dominion and glory in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!
*I speak wisdom, yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world that come to nought, but divine wisdom; it’s heard in my words and seen in my actions. And as I affirm the Word, it prevails and catapults me to a greater and brighter future with higher levels of success, victory and prosperity! Glory to God!*
1 Corinthians 2:6-7 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom], which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
Death and life [are] in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

[4/5, 7:40 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: MESSAGE FROM:
Rev. Anthony Akinmoyo
Lifeway Christian Centre,
FOCUS: Overcoming Satanic Floods Part 5.
5. Prayer Of Exemption.
What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
Oh what peace we often forfeit
Oh what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer
Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged
Take it to the Lord in prayer
Can we find a friend so faithful
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness
Take it to the Lord in prayer
Matthew 6:13 (KJV) “…lead us not into temptation, but deliver (exempt) us from evil…”
John 17:15 (KJV) I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
Beloved, the Lord had made adequate provision for our all- round protection and exemption from all evil. Prayer of exemption is one of the covenant keys to access this provision. We must know how to take our challenges to God in prayer and not in murmuring.
The Holy scripture recommends that in such a time like this, when the whole world is locked down:
Nothing seems to be working,
No church services,
Borders are closed,
Industries are closed,
Market and shops are closed,
You’re not allowed to relate with your neighbour but you must maintain ‘social distance’. There is so much fear in the atmosphere but the word of God says that in such a time like this, more attention must be given to prayer.
James 5:13 (KJV) Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.
That means prayer is the way out of every form of affliction. I so much believe we can pray the deadly virus back to hell so that normal life can return to our communities and nations. I am also happy to let us know that all our teachings and impartations next week will be on prayer, and I’m sure your prayer life will never be the same in the precious name of Jesus!
We have been holding our peace for too long, and evil is buffeting humanity on a daily basis. Let us arise in prayer and send it back to hell.
Isaiah 42:13-15 (KJV) The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies.
I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once.
I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.
Please don’t just read this prayer points but pray along with us.
1. O Lord my God, release upon me afresh the spirit of grace and supplication.
Zechariah 12:10 (KJV)” And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications…”
2. O Lord by your Spirit, set my prayer altar on fire.
3. O Lord our Father, strengthen our inner man so we can continue to prevail at the altar of prayer.
4. Every satanic agenda against humanity and the church crash in the mighty name of Jesus!
5. We command the end of this satanic virus upon planet earth in the mighty name of Jesus!
6. We frustrate the anti-Christ agenda of the devil in the mighty name of Jesus!
Isaiah 44:25 (KJV) That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish;
Job 5:12 (KJV) He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.
7. O Lord our God, turn this satanic agenda against your church and humanity to nothing.
8. Every decree that has been issued by the devil and his agents against humanity is wiped away by the blood of Jesus.
Colossians 2:14 (KJV) Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
9. Every element of evil and death around and over the nations of the earth is uprooted back to hell in the mighty name of Jesus!
Matthew 15:13 (KJV)”… Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.”
10. Every pillar of death erected around our families is rooted out in the name of Jesus!
11. We reject sickness, infirmities, death, hunger and suffering in our world in the mighty name of Jesus!
Matthew 18:18 (KJV) Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
12. We rebuke every evil wind that has been blowing lives and destinies away in the mighty name of Jesus!
13. In the name of Jesus we arrest the spirit of death from our world.
14. Psalms 56:13 (KJV) For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
O Lord deliver our feet from falling and our souls from death in the mighty name of Jesus!
15. Acts 12:5, 7 (KJV) Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.
And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.
We decree that the iron gate that the enemy is using to cage the church is crushed in the mighty name of Jesus!
16. We break every power that has been resisting our liberty and freedom of worship in the mighty name of Jesus!
17. Matthew 16:18 (KJV) “…upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”
In the name of Jesus, we come against every gate of hell that is resisting the church of Jesus Christ from moving forward.
18. O lord our God, let the hold of wickedness over nations of the earth be broken in the name of Jesus!
19. Galatians 5:10 (KJV)”… but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.”
O Lord our God, we decree all that are troubling us come under judgement in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!
Thank you Father for prayer answered.
Thank God for your liberty and visitation.
Continue to give thanks unto His holy name.
See you tomorrow,
[4/5, 7:40 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: Remove the label of ‘impossible’
Sunday 5th April 2020
‘With men it is impossible, but not with God.’ Mark 10:27 NKJV
When you label something as being ‘impossible’, three things happen: (1) By giving in to the fear of failure you kill your own faith and motivation. (2) You risk settling for less than God wants you to have. (3) By excluding God from the equation you cut yourself off from the greatest power in the universe.
When oil prices went through the roof in the 1970s, car manufacturers were ordered to build more fuel-efficient cars. One manufacturer asked a group of senior engineers to drastically reduce the weight of the cars they were designing. They worked on the problem and searched for solutions, but they finally concluded that making lighter cars couldn’t be done, would be too expensive, and would present too many safety concerns. What was the car manufacturers’ solution? They gave the problem to a group of less experienced engineers, and the new group found ways to reduce the weight of the companies’ cars by hundreds of pounds. Why? Because they believed solving the problem was possible – and it was.
Every time you remove the label of ‘impossible’ from a task and include God in it, you raise your potential from ‘average’ to ‘off-the-charts’. George Bernard Shaw said, ‘Some men see things as they are and say, “Why?” I dream of things that never were and say, “Why not?”‘ Jesus said, ‘With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible’ (Mark 10:27 NKJV). In the natural world, you may not be able to accomplish it. But when you step into the realm of the supernatural, God adds his ‘super’ to your ‘natural’, and what seems impossible becomes possible.

SAFE-GUARD YOUR SOUL
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” III John 1:2 (NKJV)
As seen in today’s scripture, the state of your soul reflects the state of your body. A healthy soul will lead to a healthy body. Your soul is the pathway to your body, the realm of the mind, will and emotions. There are five things you must safe-guard yourself from if you must deal with fear:
(1.) ANGER: a letter short of danger. James 1:20, “An angry person doesn’t do what God approves of.” Anger makes you offend God not just man. If you are unable to control your anger you will not be able to control the flow of fear in your life. If you have uncontrollable anger, fear will control you. (2.) MALICE. (3.) UNFORGIVENESS: So long as you are alive, people will offend you. Don’t just forgive, be quick to forgive. (4.) EVIL SPEAKINGS. (5.) INABILITY TO BE CONSCIOUS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT: Zechariah 4:6. Ephesians 3:16. Your personal consciousness of the Holy Spirit infuses in you supernatural boldness. You can’t have the Holy Spirit and be fearful. Safe-Guard your soul from everything that suggests fear.
Dear LORD, I thank You for today’s devotional; I receive grace to save-guard my soul, by putting away irrational anger, malice, unforgiveness, evil speaking and inability to be conscious of the Holy, in Jesus’ Name!
KEEP IN MIND
A healthy soul will lead to a healthy body.
