[8/7, 6:48 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: *LIFE AND FAVOUR*
*Rev. Anthony Akinmoyo,*

*ACTIVATE THE WORD*
Hebrews 4:12 (KJV)
*For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.*
Jeremiah 23:29 (KJV)
*Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord ; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?*
The word of God is full of power and its power is effectual in every aspect of life. The prevailing power of the word is unlimited and total. The word of God can handle every issue of life and makes us to be more than conquerors and highly favoured saints of God.
Despite the undisputable power of the word, until it is released or sent, the efficacy of its prevailing power can’t be felt, experienced and enjoyed.
Isaiah 55:11 (KJV)
*So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.*
Even the almighty God only saw the prevailing power of the word when He sent it out by speaking and declaring it. *Genesis 1:3* says, *”God said, let there be light and there was light”.* In verse 6, *”let there be firmament and it was so”*
See *Genesis 1:1-25.* This is indeed the mystery of the prevailing power of the “sent or released word” in display.
Many believers have the word but only few are engaging it, especially in the face of conflict and contrary situation. Instead, many are busy speaking the activities of the devil. They say they’re broke, poor, sick, weak. While the word says *let the weak say I am strong* and *let the poor say I am rich.* Speak the word to that situation then you will experience its prevailing power.
*The Efficacy of The Sent Word*
A. *It Dissolves and Melts Tough Issues*
Psalm 147:18 (KJV)
*He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.*
We should not be intimidated by the tough and difficult issues of life but we must confront them with the word of God. Any area of your life where there is a challenge, locate the relevant word and continue to release it, it won’t be long, the issue will be dissolved. Tell the devil of barrenness that you are a fruitful vine and that in your Father’s kingdom no one is allowed to be barren.
Deuteronomy 7:14 (KJV)
*Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle.*
Tell the devil always that you will live to see good old age. Say it again and again that your marriage is working. Don’t speak the activities of the devil but silence him by the sent word.
As stubborn as poverty could be, if you engage the relevant knowledge of the gospel, it must give way.
I see you overcome every challenge and difficulty confronting you through the efficacy of the prevailing power of the sent word in the mighty name of Jesus!
Don’t be quiet again, send the word!
> Thank you Father for the joy of seeing another beautiful day.
> Thank you my Father for your mercies and loving kindness.
> Thank you my Lord for the privilege and joy of knowing you.
> Thank you Lord for protection and promotion.
> Thank you Lord for the abundance of good things in my life and family.
1. Psalm 81:10 (KJV)
*I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.*
O Lord my God, fill my mouth with right words always to confront all the manipulations of the wicked in the mighty name of Jesus!
2. Job 6:25 (KJV)
*How forcible are right words! but what doth your arguing reprove?*
O Lord my God, grant me access to right words for every situation in the mighty name of Jesus!
3. Acts 4:29 (KJV)
*And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,*
O Lord my God, grant me grace to boldly declare your word no matter the circumstance and situation in the mighty name of Jesus!
4. Acts 14:3 (KJV)
*Long time therefore abode they speaking boldly in the Lord, which gave testimony unto the word of his grace, and granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.*
O Lord my God, always confirm your word from my mouth with signs and wonders in the mighty name of Jesus!
5. Jeremiah 5:14b (KJV)
*…I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.*
O Lord my God, you are a man of war, make your word in my mouth as fire to consume every contrary situation in the mighty name of Jesus!
6. Psalm 119:13 (KJV)
*With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.*
i. O Lord my God, let my mouth be an extension of your mouth in the mighty name of Jesus!
ii. O Lord my Father, let your word in my mouth be as powerful as it is in your mouth in the mighty name of Jesus!
7. Psalm 141:3 (KJV)
*Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.*
O Lord my God, grant me grace never to speak contrary words to your word in the mighty name of Jesus!
8. 1 Chronicles 29:12 (KJV)
*Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.*
i. O Lord my God, lift my life and destiny to a higher ground in the mighty name of Jesus!
ii. O Lord my Father, release into my life riches and honour in the mighty name of Jesus!
9. Isaiah 62:3 (KJV)
*Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.*
O Lord my Father, let my life be a direct image of your splendour and glory in the mighty name of Jesus!
10. Proverbs 10:24 (KJV)
*…but the desire of the righteous shall be granted.*
O Lord my God, grant me my heart desire over my: family, children, career, ministry, business etc in the mighty name of Jesus!
Thank you Father for working exceedingly and abundantly above all that I ask or think.
Receive my thanks and praise in the mighty name of Jesus!
See you tomorrow.
*Pray without ceasing.*
1 Thessalonians 5:16-17 (KJV)

[8/7, 6:48 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: RHAPSODY OF REALITIES.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 7TH.
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory (1Corinthians 2:7).
Our opening verse says we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery; what is it to speak wisdom? Reading 1 Corinthians 2:12-13 gives us an idea. It says, “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit, which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.”
Notice the underlined portion; it didn’t say, “Which things also we speak of”; rather, it says we speak them. We read something similar in verse 6; it says, “Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect….” We don’t talk about wisdom; we speak wisdom, and wisdom is the Word of God. Speaking wisdom is speaking the Word.
For example, Colossians 1:27 says, “…Christ in you, the hope of glory.” When you, on the basis of that scripture affirm, “I’ll forever be a victor; my life is the expression of the glory and dominion of Christ,” you’re speaking wisdom. When you declare, “I have no lack or want because I’m an heir of God and joint-heir with Christ; the whole world is mine”; you’re speaking the wisdom of God. You’re speaking wisdom, when, irrespective of the symptom you may be feeling, you say, “The life of God is activated in every fibre of my being; I’m full of life.”
There’re those who may consider you to be out of wits for speaking the wisdom of God; that’s because the wisdom of God is foolishness to the natural man. 1 Corinthians 2:14 declares, “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
Speak the wisdom of God always, and your life will glorify God. Declare your oneness with the Lord. Declare your righteousness, health, dominion, and glory in Christ Jesus. Glory to God!
The wisdom of God is in my heart and in my mouth always. I have a great life. I acknowledge and declare that I’m excellent and full of glory, living the life of righteousness, dominion and glory in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!
1 Corinthians 2:12-13 (AMPC)
12 Now we have not received the spirit [that belongs to] the world, but the [Holy] Spirit Who is from God, [given to us] that we might realize and comprehend and appreciate the gifts [of divine favor and blessing so freely and lavishly] bestowed on us by God.
13 And we are setting these truths forth in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the [Holy] Spirit, combining and interpreting spiritual truths with spiritual language [to those who possess the Holy Spirit].
Proverbs 18:21 (KJV)
That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; And I will fill their treasures.
Mark 11:23 (KJV)
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.

*SHIELD AND BUCKLER*
*Text: “He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler” Ps 91:4*
David came into the battle field completely unprepared physically to fight. He came on a completely different mission. He brought food for his brethren. When it became obvious he had to fight there was no sword or shield with him. King Saul tried to put his armour on David but he was not convenient with it. Even though David did not have a physical weapon he had something spiritual. He had a weapon that was not obvious to the physical eyes. At the end of the day the physical weapon bowed to that which was spiritual. In the battles of life you must operate and function from a level that is far higher than that of your adversaries. We can’t operate at the same level and expect to triumph.
Life is principally spiritual and we must be able to relate closely with life from the spiritual perspective. If you don’t handle life from the spiritual point of view many things will work against you. David in the ninety-one psalms said “…His truth shall be thy shield and buckler…” That simply means that the truth of God’s word is a shield and buckler for us.
A shield is a broad piece of defensive armour, carried on the arm, formerly in general use in war, for the protection of the body. A shield is anything that defends and protects. A buckler is also a kind of shield, of various shapes and sizes. In the olden days it will be a suicide mission to appear in the war front without a shield. The more sophisticated your weapons are the greater the chances of winning the battle. This is the same role the truth of God’s word is supposed to play in our lives. If you are not armed with the truth of God’s word you are open, vulnerable and exposed. The enemy can easily get you. The truth is simply all God has said and declared concerning you.
The truth of God’s word is my shield and buckler. I hold on to his word in every situation.

[8/7, 6:50 AM] Pastor Emmanuel Oshevire: *SEEDS OF DESTINY*
BY DR PAUL ENENCHE
7th AUGUST, 2020
*TOPIC: THE QUEST FOR PLEASURE – A SIGN OF THE END TIME*
SCRIPTURE: For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Beware of the strategies of satan to make people engage in the pleasures of this world and end in hell.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that a major sign of the end time is existence in pleasure.
In the end time, people will exist just for fleshly pleasure; they will eat and drink only for pleasure. The flesh will become the god of many people. People will live just for the sole purpose of gratifying the flesh.
It is important to know that what people call “secular humanism” is nothing but man being a god to himself, and living solely for himself. So, in the end time, the sins of the flesh will multiply; the devil will give people abundance of flesh-gratifying agenda to fulfil.
In the last days, the devil will orchestrate everything to make sure that people are busy with the flesh. He engages people in the abundance of internet games, video games, social media distractions, etc. just to keep them occupied with the flesh at the expense of their spirituality and their souls.
Today, luxurious objects of pleasure are everywhere just for the sake of fleshly gratification. For example, before you talk of the 2020 Model of an automobile, the 2021 Model is ready. I even heard that many automobile companies have already designed up to 2060 Model and are only waiting for them to be released at the right time.
Today, many young girls are into prostitution because they want to look fine, have expensive shoes and dresses, and have the latest mobile phone, preferably the iPhone. They move about with vanities all over their body in the form of seductive dressings and outlandish accessories and makeups. They put five rings in one finger, five ear rings in one ear and wear nose rings, anklets, etc. They pierce their tongue and other unlikely body parts, all in the name of self-pleasure.
Now, what is the reason behind the scourge of kidnapping that we see today? Why do people steal money just to drink alcohol, take cocaine, buy cars, houses etc.? What about ritual killing, armed robbery, hired assassination, etc.? Why do people sit in government offices and embezzle public fund? The reason is self-gratification, self-pleasure and vanity.
The craving for self-pleasure is the root of many vices. It is for the sake of self-pleasure that people engage in dirty competition. They buy houses abroad because their friends have houses abroad. They want to travel to London because their colleagues have been to Paris. The question is: if you have one hundred houses, how many of those houses will you sleep in, in one night? And when you die, how many houses will be buried along with you? These are the questions to ponder on.
Beloved, beware of the vanities of the flesh. Beware of the strategies of satan to make people engage in the pleasures of this world and end in hell.
Remember this: Beware of the strategies of satan to make people engage in the pleasures of this world and end in hell.
1. Refuse to exist just for fleshly pleasure.
2. Refuse to be drawn into fleshly competition with anyone.
3. Endeavour to live in the Spirit always.
PRAYER: 🙏👸🤴 O Lord, deliver me from the carnal pleasure of this end time. Help me to follow You diligently in holiness, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
