GOD'S PILL: CAPSULE 47

YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. (‭Galatians‬ ‭6‬:‭7-8‬ KJV)

This is a law that cuts across both the physical and the spiritual , it is what you call a universal law, it works in opposite directions in fact it is unbreakable and unstoppable. If you understand the above scripture properly you will see that it is a big self deception if you somehow think you can circumvent it... God will not allow it. In the physical no one plants coco yam and expect plantain, it's that simple. Furthermore if you have few of coco yam and want more, the best way to go about it, is not to eat what you have but to sow it....simple. Complaining won't get you more, crying won't get you more, there is only one way to go about it, sow coco yam or do without.

Let's consider this law in divine healing. If you want to operate in divine healing either for yourself or to minister to others, you must take the seeds of divine healing (that is scriptures that pertain to divine healing) and sow it into your heart, meditate on them until they take root and start to bear fruit in your life. This is the first step. Nobody goes from zero to a hundred, everything takes time (Mark 4:26-29). I see people who have never withstood a headache in the past, all of a sudden want to rebuke cancer. Is this impossible? Of course it is possible , but it is better to kill your bear, slay your lion before facing Goliath, that was the difference between David and his brothers.

The second step, look for people that require healing and minister into their life. Don't forget whatsoever a sows he will reap. In fact the Amplified version of the bible says 'that and that only will he reap'. If you don't like what you are reaping change what you are sowing both into your life by what you meditate on and into others. Galatians 6:9-10, says there is no limit to sowing the right stuff, don't get tired the harvest will surely come, especially if you do it to the people of God, there is a special blessing attached to it.

But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions; (‭Hebrews‬ ‭10‬:‭32‬ KJV)

Expect opposition, the devil will fight you tooth and nail to dissuade you when you first start on this track, oh yes he will whichever way possible, but remember not even the devil can mock God, 'whatsoever a man sows ,he will reap' that's a law and it cannot be broken.


CONCLUSION
WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWS, THAT AND THAT ONLY WILL HE REAP!

GOD'S PILL: CAPSULE 46

THE LINK BETWEEN FINANCIAL STEWARDSHIP AND HEALING

He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? (‭Luke‬ ‭16‬:‭10-11‬ KJV)

In this blog we are going to look at something that is not commonly linked with healing or the ability to flow in healing anointing, however if you are able to appreciate and understand this it will help in your every day christian walk not only healing.

In the Luke Chapter 16:1-13, Christ narrated a parable that is often called the Unjust Steward, essentially it has to do with financial stewardship . The conclusion in verses 10-13 Christ linked financial stewardship with the ability to flow in the things of God. In fact He said the anointing to operate in financial stewardship is the least in the kingdom. Let me put it this way I have never seen a mature Christian that does not have a reliable revelation of financial stewardship . In fact it is nigh impossible to grow spiritually if you have not grasped this. Financial stewardship according to Christ is the litmus test, for qualification for the 'true riches' (Luke 16:11). Until you circumcise your heart of greed you will struggle spiritually. There are a few reasons for this, the first is that believe it or not like money the anointing for victorious christian living is meant to flow through you same as money should (2Corinthians 9:8, Deuteronomy 8:18, Genesis 12:2). You see both money and anointing or unction of the Holy Spirit are currency that is meant to flow. They don't belong to you, you are only a custodian or steward. If you fail with the physical one , you cannot handle the spiritual.

Secondly, Matthew 6:24, Luke 16:13 both say God and money are both deities and they are both absolute masters. Let me put it this way, your strength or the extent of what you can achieve is dictated by which one you choose. Money have influence in the physical, God controls the spiritual that also controls the physical (2Corinthians 4:18). The rich young ruler in Mark 10, wanted influence in the spiritual but could not renounce his god...money. You cannot serve two masters, it is impossible!!

When you know that Christ is your Lord, (that is master), you will realise that you have influence in spiritual things including healing. Unfortunately very few Christians connect the dots between financial stewardship and spiritual maturity. As money looses its grip over your heart you will become more confident in spiritual things, you will decree a thing and it will be established on to you.

Lastly, it's important that you know that there is nothing wrong with money as long as it is serving you. Let God have you and you have money, that is the divine order. God does not mind you having money, what He is against is money having you

CONCLUSION

YOU CAN'T SERVE TWO MASTERS, IT'S EITHER GOD OR MONEY.

IF HE CAN GET IT THROUGH YOU, HE WILL GIVE IT TO YOU

GOD'S PILL: CAPSULE 45

FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH

THE FAITH SERIES:13

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. (‭1 Timothy‬ ‭6‬:‭12‬ KJV)

My intention is to discuss what it means to fight the good fight of faith in this capsule . This will be the conclusion to the faith series. (There are some other spiritual ingredients like patience that is interlinked with faith (Hebrews 6:12), please refer to capsule 18 and 19). As a matter of fact I do not think that we could ever fully exhaust the subject. Since we started the blog I am constantly challenged by both the depth of what I have come to know and what I am yet to know.

As born again Christians there is only one fight we have any legal right to fight or indeed there is only one fight that is needful and that is 'the good fight, which is the fight of faith' (1Tim.6:12, Jude 1:3). Everything we have learnt sofar in these blogs or indeed the whole bible is to help us understand what it means to fight the fight of faith. This is unlike any other fight (2 Corinthians 10:3-6).

The first thing to understand is that we are primarily spiritual beings, and we are fighting from a stand point of victory. Christ already fought and won the war, what we are doing is to ensure we maintain our victory (Galatians 5:1, Colossians 2:14-15). These 2 mindsets are central if you are going to make any sense of the 'fight of faith'. This will help you understand phrases like 'be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might', 'more than a conqueror' etc. With this in mind, there is no way you will ever fail, even when things appear to be the contrary (Philippians 1:19-26).

There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief. (‭Hebrews‬ ‭4‬:‭9-11‬ KJV)

Hebrews 4:9-11 describes what it means to fight the good fight of faith, in other words it is to 'labour or fight or work to enter into the rest of God, this sounds like an oxymoron, how does one labour to enter into rest? The clue is we are 'human-beings not human-doings'. The original design for man was to rest, that was why he was created on the 6th day and the 7th day God rested. The first day of man on earth was a day of rest. Man woke up to find everything provided, that is, he walked into rest. The labour is the fight to accept that this is the reality. This is the struggle that Christians of every generation have faced, we have this constant urge of wanting to 'do'. Man was not created for service but for fellowship (Revelations 4:11, 2Corinthians 13:14). The question is how do we go about it so that our 'labour' leads into that rest, how do we ensure that our fight is a fight of faith (Hebrews 4:1-3 KJV)

Question:
Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? (John 6:28 KJV)

Answer:
Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. (‭John‬ ‭6‬:‭28 KJV)

This is what separates victorious Christians from others, knowing how to fight the good fight of faith. It is not a once and for all time thing. you need to constantly remind yourself that the battle or rather the war has been won, you are only the custodian of the victory, moreover you have been given the power and authority to do just that in the name of Jesus (Matthew 10:1, Luke 9:1, Acts1:8)

CONCLUSION
DON'T BOX THE AIR, FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT

PS
I would encourage you to go to and through the bible references, they will enrich and make your understanding much more better.

GOD'S PILL CAPSULE: 44

THE FAITH SERIES :12

FAITH COMES (How to develop your faith)

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (‭Romans‬ ‭10‬:‭17‬ KJV)

Virtually every Christian I know wants to walk in faith but very few have the desire to do what the word says. I see Christians ask for prayer so that they can have faith and I wonder why this level of ignorance, what is more amazing is that I have seen people praying for them to have faith. There is only one way you will develop your faith and that is by the word. Any other way is dubious to say the least. There are a few reasons why this is so.

The first reason is that you already have faith. It took faith for you to be born again what you need to do is to maintain and develop yourself in it. Faith is like a current it needs to flow (Philippians 2:6-7). The word of God is the best His got, in fact that is His power , it gives you access to the spiritual provision called Grace (Romans 1:16-17, 5:2)

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. (‭Romans‬ ‭1‬:‭16-17‬ KJV)

The above scripture is very instructive, think about it, it was because somebody preached the Gospel of salvation to you, you heard, understood and believed, that was why you had faith for salvation or deliverance from the Kingdom of darkness. Not because somebody prayed for you to have faith to be saved. Can you see the marked difference?

Secondly, you can only have faith for what you know! Christ put it this way 'you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free'. It is only the truth that you know, not the one your Pastor or your wife know or anyone else.You can only believe for what you know has been provided for in the new covenant . Don't be deceived! 

In the past, I noticed that sometimes when I minister healing to some people and command the disease to leave, we would get result but only temporarily. It bothered me, until the Lord ministered to me that I need to expose people to the truth so that they can sustain the healing by their own faith. Now I don't just pray, I spend time building their faith up through the word before praying. Even after that I ask what they are able to believe for? This is to make sure that they have faith to sustain or maintain the healing. I have seen better results since taking this approach. Once you understand this you are able to reproduce the result and get a good report (Hebrews 11:2).

If I have 10 minutes, I would rather spend 9 of those minutes on the word and 1 minute to pray, it works better, because once the faith is released in their heart through the word the rest is formality.

Lastly, the word is the seed and your heart is the soil, if you are going to reap the harvest of faith the word would need to germinate in your heart, that is what meditation is all about. In John 8:32, the Greek word translated 'know' is 'ginosko' which describes physical intimacy between opposite sexes or revealed knowledge or what is commonly referred to as revelation. In other words faith is born out of intimacy with the word of God, there are no two ways about it.

CONCLUSION
THE WORD IS THE SEED, YOUR HEART IS THE SOIL, FAITH IS THE HARVEST
Ps
Next week, we would look at how to fight the good fight!
