Rev Ken Igbinedion
There are saints who sit in darkness. We are proclaiming that the church is entering into a realm of liberty. Life campaign is to proclaim what god is doing to His people. We are saying as a people that this is the mandate for this hour. God has begat many children to himself even in Nigeria. It was God who did those things not man. We will be empowered if we are doing what god is saying.
Light is an entrance of strength to His people. God is bringing strength to his people and He’s using light to do this. We should not postpone what God is saying to us or else, it will be irrelevant. We are here to tell the church what God is saying. Jesus died for the whole world, not only for the Jews. We should not be too ‘holy’ to receive what God is saying to us. God preferred Saul who did not even know Him to Peter who knew Him and yet was stubborn. Paul’s gospel is designed for the remission of sins. There are sins that can only be tampered with by light. Let God be true and every other man a liar. You can’t attain God’s righteousness by observing the Ten Commandments. There is need for us to receive a new commandment which is of eternal life. This only works in Christ. You must be in the spirit for this new law to be alive in you.
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
The law and commandments bring confusion. The realm of the spirit is as real as the natural life. We are to be opened to the realm of the spirit where Jesus is everything. The devil wants us to be afraid of the Spirit but it is by grace and not strength. So, don’t be afraid. Use the liberty of the spirit to respond to your Father. The Lord reigns in the midst of darkness. God is making ministers of the New Testament in this end time and it is a great thing. Peter ministers the beginning of the New Testament but he could not go to the finishing. God said He will build his church and he will equip people for it. It is possible for you to know it and not be able to minister it. We need enlightenment for the things that are coded in the scriptures. We need the spirit of wisdom and revelation to decode it.
There are saints in darkness. God is doing a lot to ensure saints are transported into the realm of God’s love. And this operation will stand and deal with anything stopping us from reaching this inheritance. And life Campaign is an avenue where we stand together as a people to say to ourselves that the Lord begat many children.
In those days, many things caught our attention and brought us to Himself. It was not man that did all these things. God has always been interested in man.
There is a commandment of the spirit of Christ. We cannot be hedged by any code of conduct. Light will shine and write a new law in our hearts.
This thing is a divine thought. Eternal life will be forever and the life of God is eternal life. Eternal means ever present now. Every other aspect of the gospel is borne out of Life. The testimony of God is that He has given us Life. This life is in the Son. He that has the Son ha this life, he that has it not, does not have Him. There is something the world does not understand, this is Eternal Life.
Adam had life and a tree of life was also planted in the garden. His assignment was not to build monument or heal the sick, it is to move towards that tree. He must keep on moving, if he doesn’t he becomes stale. So also was the instruction for the Israelites. God’s intention is that we must have Life and have it abundantly against the stealing, killing and the destruction of the devil.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
If God’s life is not abundant in you, you cannot handle the stealing, killing and destruction of the devil. You cannot lift up standard if there is no abundance. The job of the enemy is to stop us from making progress into the Life. He stopped Adam. Just by one stroke of the enemy, one can be rubbed off. If you want to be free from the enemy’s reach, progress into Life.
There is something about man. Genesis 1:26, Genesis 2:7, the dust can easily be erased; and God’s instruction to the devil is to feed on dust. Man therefore must not stay in that realm so that the devil will not feed on him. The union of a man and woman is so that they can both move towards Life and not die but Adam’s caused his death.
Life is the ultimate locked up in the word of God. This word has dotes in it that kills too- Ignorance, the letter of the word. It is the Spirit in the written word that gives Life. How do we contact the Spirit of the word? We are to press into the Spirit. When man therefore refuses to move even when God speaks over and over and they refuse to make use of the words of the Lord, those very things that God said will become their problem. We get relaxed so many times because we seem to be okay. There will remain only one thing one day after all our pursuits go down the drain.
The way the church is today is pathetic; Pastors fighting and killing one another because of who preaches and the adopted manner. It is not about who preach but about the Life that must be expressed. It should come to a time which is actually where the church is supposed to be right now when the nations and their leaders will not be able to do anything without consulting the church. The issue is we should be concerned with the Lord is saying NOW! We should be concerned about His ‘syllabus’. It is He alone who has the ability to say. Who is it that commands when the Lord has not say it? It is Christ that has been authorised to speak: ‘this is my beloved Son, hear ye him’. He is the speaker therefore do not harden your heart. No one will receive commendation on the externalities but on the inner man. It should not be left uncared for because it is he who will stand before the Lord at the end. We must care about our spirits coming to God. We have only one assignment and it is to lay hold on Life.
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
The Israelites had God as their owner. They cannot suddenly rise up a day and do their own thing. Colossians 1:13.
Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son
Jesus can only be your Lord when the Holy Spirit unveils him. If we do not know him, he cannot be lord over us. We are to seek first the Kingdom and His righteousness not things. When God withhold some things from us, it is so that we can focus on him. We should understand that He wants to change our gaze. Can we see his face? He communicates through His face. We are to seek His face and live. When we build ourselves round what God can give, they will soon become our problems. God is saying to us that if He does not deny us of some things, He cannot reach us.
When God talks about light it is about conquering the stronghold in us not shining from the outside. Light has indeed shone on us when we smile at things that make us mad and angry before. There are laws of darkness and there is warfare. God is going to war with us. He will not provide the food that is tasty to our souls. A feast is where we feed on ways of life. Daniel refused to feed at the table of the king of Babylon because the feast there will change him and make him see life differently from God’s.
Man has two parts that inform him; one can be ordered by the Spirit and the other by the flesh. Our conscience needs to be lightened by the scriptures and may God grant us understanding. He is our Lord. His knowledge should over write every other knowledge we have. Peter failed in this aspect when he refused to kill and eat as he was instructed. He should strip us of our knowledge. Our sight has to be formatted. What we know are the enemies of this Light. We have to see as we ought to see. God does not want us to live by what we know, knowledge, philosophies. In Him was Life and the Life was the Light of men. It is not a carnal or natural light. God wants to upgrade us and we must be upgraded. As the light comes and increases in a man, he becomes formed. There is only one image God wants us to bear: the image of the Son of God.
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
Jesus is not junior God and the Holy Spirit either. The God head expresses Himself in three ways. The Holy Spirit copes with our darkness and helps us become Christ. The Church needs the Holy Spirit. He has a way of helping us.
There is a writing going on inside us, this is how the Light must be ignited.
‘Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you? Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:
Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you? Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:
Man is a tripartite being. The part of us called the spirit is from God, another part is called the soul. What feeds them is from their source.
‘And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
The soul feeds on information that is why stronghold of knowledge rules it. The body feeds on food. Darkness came to detach these three so that we will not be whole and come to that completeness, wholeness and holiness of God. God is holy because He is whole. His intention is that we will become His touch and light. We do not know who we are because we are still full of darkness. Information is Light. Jesus shows us who we are by writing on our souls so that our spirits, souls and bodies can be preserved. The body is to be the mirror acting out whatever is happening on the inside of a man. God wants to see truth in our hearts flowing out in the natural way possible. God does not answer us many times because our hearts do not agree with what our mouths are saying. The way Light will come is by God’s Spirit writing on us not by piety or involving in some religious activities. When we follow God just because we want to follow to know, we will be lightened and become Lights. This the devil hates. He wants us to seek things but God loves it because it is by seeking Him to know Him that we become like him which is His delight.
The writing on the stones is what qualified the stones to lie in the ark in the holy of holies when the children of Israel could not enter. When God finishes His writing on us and our hearts are full with His writings, we will be ignited and glow radiantly but while the preparation is going on, we experience a lot of pain. He is always there in the times of pain but does not let us go because of His intention for us. As many who will open up their hearts saying here I am Lord, put Your light on my candle will have the fellowship of the Father. No longer will they dwell in darkness. It is when we are enlightened that we will not follow the natural lights. Our prayers should be that the lord will light our candle and increase our intensity.
