KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 5:14 “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid”.

Our Lord Jesus was born under the law and lived under the law (Galatians 4:4) yet, he introduced the life of the new man or the new creation. He lived out the life of the new man. He is our grand example.

Jesus is the light of the world. (John 8:12). He also described those who were to receive eternal life as the light of the world. (Matthew 5:14). “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden”. Light has so many positive significance.

  1. Light is a solution in every way.
  2. Light, on any problem means the answer.
  3. Light reveals all that is hidden.
  4. Light is a leader.
  5.   Light shows the way.

 In the light of all that is said about light, calling us the light of the world, places a great responsibility on us. . Well since he always told the truth, then it also suggests that we have every ability to function as true lights.

 That is to lead, inspire, bless, and give answers to our world .. Our lives should be without crookedness and deception. .Philippians 2:15  ” That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world”;

Dear child of God, Jesus says you are the light of the world. He even added that we must let our light shine so much that others would see our good works and give glory to God our Father” (Matthew 5:16). Please note this, We are not called to be lights, but rather we are lights by nature. This is what we are. Lights can always shine. Refuse to be insignificant in this life. You are a city set on a hill, you can’t be hidden. This implies there is no power that can suppress your glory. Say it boldly, ‘I am the light of the world, and I’m shinning’.

You should be an answer to the questions of many. You should be a unique example for all those who may be having difficulties about moral matters.

The second demand placed on us as lights is to lead in all aspects of positive pursuits of life. (To be continued)


I am the light of the world. This is my nature, and so I shine in a world of darkness. My presence in the society ward off all kinds of darkness. Darkness posed by sin, sicknesses and satanic activities and other challenges among men.


1 Peter 2:9 ” But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light”:

Ephesians 5:13” But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light”.


KEY SCRIPTURE: 1 John 4:16 “”And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him”.

Our key scripture shows us that to dwell in love is to abide in God and God also abides in you. This makes you the headquarters of God’s presence and power.

I would give a practical event to illustrate this. A lady brought her daughter, who has been having repeated attacks of a health condition to me. Her condition became so bad that, they had to be borrowing money from neighbours to take care of their daughter. I inquired about her relationship with her husband. She said, they were not on good terms. There was a lot of misunderstandings among them. I said to her, I would not pray for your daughter until you have called your husband, and the two of you come over to see me. She came along with the husband and then I explained to them the power of love that allows God’s presence and power to dwell in their home. I explained that demons are the cause of divisions, quarreling among families. When they succeed in dividing the parties, they then do any evil, they so wish to. I prayed with them and asked them to throw away any differences and move as a one unit family with love for each other. They departed, and from that day, their daughter stopped getting sick. They had no headaches of thinking about how to get money for the hospital, because there was no need. The secret was the power of love.

God is love. Loving one another is releasing God into action. The miracle ministry is always carried out by men and women with great compassion. Our Lord Jesus always healed the sick because of the deep compassion he had for the oppressed. Matthew 14:14 “And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick”.

Faith is the channel through which we receive from God yet love is the ground or foundation for faith. Faith worketh by love.


The expression of love is always a demonstration of God’s presence. Miracles happen when God comes to the scene. I would continually walk in love towards all persons.


Mark 1:41  ” And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean”.

1 Corinthians 13:8  ”   Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away”.

KEY SCRIPTURE: 1 John 4:16 ” And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.”

Apostle John said ,we have known and believed in the love that God has for us. One cannot come into a true love walk until, he or she has come to terms with the love of God.

Apostle Paul, also said in 2nd. Corinth 5:14 that, it is the love of Christ that constrains or compels me. For we thus judge that if one died for all, then all were dead. He is implying that, because of the understanding I have about Christ love, my whole life is under the influence of His love, it is the love of Jesus that now controls me. Please take some time to meditate on the love of Christ for us, so you would be liberated from the normal human love, to walk in a supernatural love.

The Holy Spirit speaks further in our opening scripture that “God is love, and he that dwells in love, dwells in God.” This suggests that a home of love is a place where you can find the acts of the Spirit of God.

My question is, how many homes are filled with the love of God. How many relationships are truly abiding in the love of God? The scripture, also *   implies that, where * love is absent devils go on* rampage. This is a real fact. When God’s love dims in a home, there suddenly comes setbacks, failure in businesses, Incurable diseases start manifesting and above all these is a constant pain in the hearts of the occupants of such a home. Dear brother or sister this is a luxury you can’t simply afford.

Allow the love of Christ to overwhelm you by beginning to focus on the great love of God for you..

End that cycle of mistrust and hurting of each other. Let the love of Jesus flow through you. You are not a weak character to forgive and accept the offending party. You are rather strong when you are able to overcome the hurt and allow life to move on.

Allow God to reign in your life and home by walking in love.


I have known the liquid love of God. His love controls me and all that connects me. The blessings of God affect everything around me.


1 Peter 4:8 ” And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins”.

KEY SCRIPTURE:  2 Corinthians 5:14 ” For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead”:

Every Christians is part of the love generation.  A people who are committed to bless the world around them.

As human beings we grow up with the relational kind of love. This in the Greek is called ‘Phileo’.  It is the love due to the relationship we have with people. One may love another because, she is her sister, her brother, mother or friends. This is due to a relationship. This is normal human love.

There is the God kind of love. The. Bible talked about it this, way,”….. Whiles, we were yet sinners Christ died for the ungodly” (Romans 5:8). This kind of love does not consider affiliations or whether one has been good to him or her. It even accepts the one who has offended. The one who hurts you, does not receive your revenge and condemnation, but your forgiveness and blessing. The Lord said “but I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you”. (Matthew 5:44). Someone may say this is difficult. Well, it is not only difficult, it’s impossible for the natural man to do.   As a child of God, you are not natural but spiritual..  You are born after the nature of Jesus.

 The ability to do the scripture is a positive response. Faith is the response of the heart or human spirit to the word of God.  Don’t receive this with your mind, no. The things of the spirit are foolishness to the natural man.  (1st Corinthians 2:14). Say to yourself,’ I can love my enemies, I will pray for them who despitefully use me.  I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me (Philippines 4:13).

Dear child of God, bring the sunshine back to your home.  Give a smile to your wife, wife say a kind word to your husband. Father call your teenage daughter, this time not with an angry face, but a cheerful smiling face.  This does not mean you overlook the wrong. I am saying, don’t let the sun go down over your anger. After the stern correction, bring back the happy son and parent, daughter and mother, husband and wife, and friend’s relationship. We are a love generation.

We don’t know hatred, because we have passed from death to life.


I am a member of the love generation, I don’t curse, I do not hate neither do I enjoy evil happening to others.  I express the love of Jesus. The agape love.  Everyone that comes near me is infected with the Jesus love.


Colossians 3:13-14  ” Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye’. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness”.

Ephesians 4:26-27″  Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil”.

KEY SCRIPTURE: John 15:13 “Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends”.

It was love that put Jesus on the cross. His love for you and me made Him come to the earth in the first place. Someone once asked, can we also love in this way. ? I say yes because, we are one with Him (1st Corinthians 6:17).and the Holy Spirit has shared this kind of love in our hearts. (Rom 5:5)

When the Lord said, do unto others what you would want them to do unto you; He meant whatever good thing we would see fit that others do for us, we do likewise for them. Luke 6:31. By this statement He was saying put others first. Love goes out of its way to establish the security, blessing and salvation of them that are lost.

It was love that sent a number of the missionaries to Africa at such a time when there was no cure for malaria and other communicable diseases. Many of them died in Africa. Although there were some who went with wrong motives. They took advantage of the poverty of the Africans and made slaves out of a number of them.  Despite these self-seeking people, there were many more who were very genuine. They went through pain and hardship to learn the local languages and communicate the gospel to them.  There were some who were murdered in cold blood by the Africans.  Most Africans have their Bibles in their local dialects by the efforts of most of these missionaries.

Indeed greater love has no man, than this, that a man should lay His life for His friends. Every Christian has an abundant life. We have a supernatural life.  We do not relate with people with a mentality of lack and protection of what we have.  We relate with people in the light of God’s purpose and their eternal good.

It is now your opportunity to demonstrate this love to a lost one. You may accept to go on a mission to a deprived area, and spend your life for their salvation.

It is a great misunderstanding of Christianity, to think of losing.  We have been brought into a world of unlimitedness. (1st Corinth 3:21)We do not loose, but we invest. 2 Corinthians 4:17 “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;” Taking from us does not make us loose. Our source is limitless, our source is God. Giving must be our delight. Give your life for somebody today.

Free giving is the sparkle for the survival of creation.


He saved me to make me like Himself. I offer my life that the many who are lost in death and darkness would find life and be saved.

Galatians 5:22 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith”.

Our key scripture reveals that the fruit of the spirit is love. It is not talking about a number of fruits.. The fruit (singular) is love. All that is spoken of like, joy, peace, longsuffering are all the manifestations of love.

The new man is love ruled, love constrained (2nd Corinthians 5:14). He hails from love. Love is the sunshine of life, for as the sun freely gives its light and heat, so is love excited about giving out freely. Love is continually filled with excitement about giving, whiles selfishness seeks to possess and keep everything to itself. It keeps and finds it difficult to release those who have hurt him or her. The tears of the selfish proceeds from his inability to let go things. Love carries a smile, a hug, an encouragement ready to be given to the world around him or her. Love indeed is the great liberator of the soul of man.

Love is not of the senses. It is not a product of the carnal instincts, it is a manifestation of the nature of the father in the hearts of His children. Romans 5:5 “And hope maketh not ashamed, because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit which is given unto us”. Love in the heart of the Christian is not something he or she tries to work it out, it is natural with him to love.

The question still remains, why are most Christian homes boiling with anger, division and pain? This has been so because of lack of being given an opportunity to behold the true colours of who they are.  The message about our love nature has not captured most Christians. Most people are still taught that judgement and condemning messages.  That is what they see and so they practice that.. Please dear child of God your source is God (who is love) Accept that, that is your true nature. You are a spirit being whose prime nature is love. Accept this about yourself.

You do not win by putting others down, No, You are not happy by paying others back according to what they have done to you.


The God kind of love is the nature of the new man.  I love all and hate none.  I lift all and put down none.  My delight is the joy on the faces of all, because that is who I am.


1 Corinthians 13:3 “And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profits me nothing”.

KEY SCRIPTURE:  Galatians 5:1” Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage”

ARCHBISHOP BENSON IDAHOSA of blessed memory asked all the pastors in the meeting he held in Ghana for the last time before his demise to meet in an upper room at ACTION CHAPEL SPINTEX ROAD. During the course of the deliberation with us he made a comment in which I responded, ‘God forbid’.  I was standing very close to him since all of us stood up as he talked to us.  He turned to me and said, “As for God He has forbidden already, you must forbid.

Dear fellow child of God as for God, He has made a complete payment for total deliverance, peace, security, victory and good health in this life.  Our key scripture admonishes us to stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.  God has paid the ransom price through our Lord Jesus. We must stand fast in the awareness of our liberty.  We do this by holding on diligently to all the promises of divine payment.

You can declare by faith that since the Lord Jesus died to break the power of sin over your life, sin would no longer have dominion over you. By this declaration you are making sure that you take full advantage of your redemption. It could be a word about your health, or finances or fruitfulness.

Heaven is ready to go into an agreement with anyone who takes sides with the scriptures .Isaiah 55:3 says “Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David”. When you submit to any word of God to trust in it, the Lord also treats that word as His terms of the covenant. So long as you believe and act in line with that word, the Lord would honour his part, because it has become a covenant between the two of you.

Walk in the light of your redemption by yielding totally to God’s promises. God has fulfilled His portion, it is now up to you to stop the enemy by taking sides with the scriptures.


My Lord Jesus has made me free through His sacrifice for me. I stand fast in this liberty and give no occasion for the devil to hold me bound any longer.

KEY SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 9:12 “Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us”.

The Lord Jesus did not offer the blood of goats and calves but by His own blood He entered once into the holy place to obtain an eternal redemption for us all. The price for our redemption is His divine precious blood.

Apostle Peter being inspired by the Holy Ghost wrote that, you were not redeemed with corruptible things as silver and gold but with the precious blood of our Lord Jesus.(1st Peter 1:18).The word redeem means to liberate one by the payment of ransom.

What were we redeemed from? We were redeemed from the dominion of death or better still from the dominion of Satan (Colossians 1:13). By virtue of the  price for our redemption, nothing is left to be paid.  Note: The payment or ransom was made unto God our father and not to the devil. This satisfied the divine law. (Ezekiel 18:4)

 In spite of what scripture says about our redemption from the dominion of Satan and his works, a number of us  Christians find ourselves still dominated by the works of the enemy.  Some of us do not walk in the vocation wherewith we have been called according to Ephesians.4:1. On relating with some people who call themselves Christians, you wonder whether they even read their bibles? Some are also bound by satanic power and sicknesses. To what degree has the redemption benefited you? What must you do to receive the full impact of your redemption? 1st Corinth 6:20, instructs us as follows: ” For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s”.

The above verse says, since we have been bought with a price, we must glorify God in our bodies and our spirits which are now God’s. The responsibility lies with us to do it. In our spirits we must live above sin. In our bodies we must be free from diseases A sick body can’t glorify God, neither will a sinful life glorify God. We can do these things by knowing God’s word and live according to what the word says. Taking Romans 8:2 as an example; it says “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and of death.” Act on this verse, Say to yourself, the law of sin and death, which produces sin and sicknesses no longer has dominion over me.

As you walk in the light of the word, darkness would no longer rule you. You would live in the light of your eternal redemption.


Thank you heavenly Father for allowing our Lord Jesus to sacrifice His life for my absolute liberty. I take full advantage of it and glorify God in my life.


Romans 8:11″  But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you”.

KEY SCRIPTURE: .2 Timothy 2:15 ” Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”.

Hosea 4:6 tells us, my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. The right application of the scriptures in various life encounters establishes our victory.

We have to do all things in the word. When praying we have to understand that we have:

  1. Making requests from the Lord.
  2. Making declarations of faith, .
  3. Commanding situations to change.

All these must be done in line with the truth as revealed in the word of God.

In 1st Peter 5:8,9a the scriptures say “Be sober, be vigilant, because  your adversary the devil,  as a roaring lion,  walketh about seeking whom to devour, whom resist steadfast in the faith…. “. We are supposed  to resist the devil steadfast in the faith”.

There are some prayers we make against  the devil ,which are not in consonance with the faith.  Example, when a Christian makes a prayer like “All these weapons of the devil that is destroying my life I command you to die by fire”. Now what does the bible say about weapons that come against us?.  Isaiah 54:17. Says “No weapon that is formed against  thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against  thee  in judgement thou shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their righteousness is of me,  saith the Lord”.

In the example I gave, the one praying has admitted  that the weapons are “destroying him”. The scripture also said no weapon formed against thee shall prosper. If you pray the way that prayer goes, you are admitting something against  what the scripture has said.  This gives you a wrong foundation to confront the enemy. The scripture said no weapon formed against you shall prosper.  You may pray in the following way , “irrespective of what is happening  to me,  the scriptures say no weapon formed  against me shall prosper and so whatever weapons fashioned against me, you can’t  prosper against me.  I command you to die or be destroyed by fire in Jesus name”.

If you pray this way your prayer has not compromised the scriptures, and you are resisting in the faith.  No devil can stop you, if you hold faith with the word.No matter the kind of prayer you may be offering,let it agree with revealed  scripture. .


I submit to God, by accepting  what  He says .I  resist the enemy,  who would always flee in Jesus name.


James 4:7″  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”.

Isaiah 5:13 ” Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst”.

Psalms 11:3 ” If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”


KEY SCRIPTURE: 2 Timothy 2:15 ” Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needed not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”.

Scriptural revelation is progressive. This means as time went by in the bible era God dealt differently with His children. God has dealt with various generations in very special ways called dispensations. The following are the dispensations that has existed from creation to the end of time.

  1. Dispensation of innocence – Edenic covenant.
  2. Dispensation of conscience – Adamic covenant.
  3. Dispensation of Human Government – Noahic covenant.
  4. Patriarchal Dispensation – Abrahamic covenant.
  5. Dispensation of the law – Mosaic covenant.
  6. Dispensation of Grace – New covenant
  7. Dispensation of God’s kingdom – Everlasting covenant.

Most of the Old Testament era were written under the dispensation of the law: This is also called the old covenant or the Mosaic covenant. Under this covenant God dealt with His people on the bases of works and their ability to obey the law.

Note: the bible remains one whole book. The truths of scripture were only made clearer by subsequent dispensations. Every aspect of biblical revelation may be applicable depending on whether newer or more light has been given over that particular one.

The dispensation of Grace or the New Covenant, which was effected after the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus, brought more insight into our relationship with the Father.

The dispensation of grace offers us a relationship with the Father based on the finished work of Jesus on the cross and His resurrection…  We relate to Him fully on the perfection of Christ. It is in bad taste to pray and say “O God I am weak and have no helper and so help me”. When you pray this way you are.  Right, yet you could do it better by acting on scripture that says “….. I will never leave thee nor forsake thee, so that we may boldly say, the Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me” (Hebrews 13:5b, 6). Under the old covenant we may find prayers that talk about how helpless one was, yet in the new covenant you never become helpless.  God lives inside of you.

 You do no justice to the word when you pray that “O God be with me in all my troubles”. Such statement seriously compromises the truth of the scripture that says “. I will be with you always even unto the end of the age”. (Matt 28:20)

  “Pray this way, “I know you are always with me”. In this way your faith would be agile to overcome all oppositions..


God is my Father, and through Jesus I have a glorious relationship  with Him.  I relate with Him as Father and Son  , anything less than that,compromises his provisions and I reject that.
