GOD'S PILLS 2016 : CAPSULE 29

WALKING IN THE SUPERNATURAL SUPPLY OF GOD: A LIFE OF PRAISE:DEVELOPING ATTITUDE FILLED WITH GRATITUDE; PRAISE AFFECTS THE MANIFESTATION OF GOD'S GRACE IN YOUR LIFE.

“But You are holy, O You Who dwell in [the holy place where] the praises of Israel [are offered].” Psalm 22:3 AMP

We are now almost at the close of this wonderful series, WALKING IN THE SUPERNATURAL SUPPLY OF GOD. We have looked at eight principles to help codify this, if you have followed, studied and meditated, I can guarantee that you will never see things the same way again, never! These are not just mere fancy proses, I am persuaded these are life changing seeds that come with a guarantee of harvest. Over time, I have developed the attitude of directing people to the relevant capsules before we meet because time is precious (this is to prepare their hearts). I am always thrilled when I follow up and find that things have been resolved just by reading, studying and meditating on the appropriate God's pill. The results at times stagger me, the physical healings are the ones that always cause a stirring in me, because 'a man with an experience is not at the mercy of an argument' (John 9:25). This is what the capsule is designed for, to TREAT wrong thinking.

A quick recap 1. God is my source, my only source 2. God anticipated all my needs and made provision before the need arose 3. The provision is always more abundant than the need 4. All I need has been provided by grace in my born again spirit 5. Faith gives access to what God has provided by grace 6. I am blessed to be a blessing 7. Hold no grudge. We are now on the eighth and last principle; A LIFE OF PRAISE: ATTITUDE FILLED WITH GRATITUDE. In the preceding capsules we have seen that it affects not only you but also satan and demons. In this capsule, we will look at how it helps release the manifestation of the presence of God in your life.

“As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them.” Acts 13:2 KJV

Any church, fellowship or gathering where the main aim or focus is chasing and fighting demons have missed the mark by default and deception and is prey to confusion and lies of Satan. The reason is simple; the grace of God is manifested when praise is directed towards HIM. The Holy Spirit is obliged to manifest where the Resurrected Jesus Christ is regarded as LORD. The primary purpose of the Holy Spirit is to glorify Christ (1 Corinthians 12:3, John 14:26, John 16:14-15). The fact that something is supernatural or spectacular, does not mean it is of God. Psalms 22:3, leaves you in no doubt that 'God DWELLS in the PRAISES of His people'Simple! Satan is happy to engage and occupy your attention in what some Christians call deliverance as long as he moves your focus away from God, it's a great deception. (There is a misconception between Deliverance and casting out of demons, the two are completely different. By the grace of God, I will have the opportunity to show you in the future.).

In Acts 13:2, when the disciples in Antioch needed direction they directed their praise towards God, they ministered to Him, the result was 'the Holy Spirit spoke! The reason is simple, He needed to glorify Christ in that situation (John 16:13). Even in the Old Testament, when Elisha needed a word from God, he asked for a minstrel to minister to God (2 King 3:15). In Acts 16 when Paul and Silas directed their praise towards God in the depths of a prison the Holy Spirit manifested (burdens were lifted, yokes destroyed) and Christ was glorified by the birth of the Church at Philippi. In Ephesians 5:17-20, Paul says 'if you are filled with the Holy Spirit, you will speak in psalms, hymns, spiritual songs, sing and make melody in your heart to God and give thanks always! A life of praise is like a sweet smelling savour to God, it enhances the manifestation of the grace of Christ (without being crude, just as the odour from effluent attracts flies).

I wish I had time and space to say more, but I am confident that the Holy Spirit will do the perfection in your hearts. As we close on this series, I would like to challenge you to take time out and go through the Eight Principles in one go, study and meditate on the scriptural references, you will be blessed. As promised we would look at 2 stories of Christ (Luke 11:5-13, Luke 18:2-8) against the light and understanding of theses principles, be prepared .......

CONCLUSION
FLOOD YOUR LIFE WITH PRAISE AND HIS PRESENCE WILL MANIFEST IN ALL THAT YOU DO

GOD'S PILLS 2016 : CAPSULE 28

WALKING IN THE SUPERNATURAL SUPPLY OF GOD:
A LIFE OF PRAISE:DEVELOPING ATTITUDE FILLED WITH GRATITUDE; 

THE EFFECT OF PRAISE ON SATAN AND HIS COHORT

“And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?” Matthew 21:16 KJV

At the beginning of this year in the very first capsule of 'Truly Blessed', I said I was believing God for great things this year, without a doubt this is coming to pass, I pray the same is happening to you. I can see a clearer picture of the resurrected Christ and by the grace of God a clearer picture of who I am in Him (2 Corinthians 5:17, 1 John 4:17). On some occasions I even hesitate to share somethings. For those who are just joining us we are on the eight principle of this life changing series ' Walking in the supernatural supply of God', I call it 'A life of praise: Developing an attitude filled with gratitude '. If you recall from the last two preceding capsule, I said this is three dimensional in its impacts: it impacts you, the Satan and his cohort and definitely acts as gauge for the manifestation of the goodness of God in you life. We have looked at the first part, the summary is that Praise is like taking your spiritual pulse. Like the Medical Doctor will check the arterial pulse and be able to make deductions about your physical health , the same way you can deduce the spiritual vitality of anyone by their praise life, whether weak or vibrant, it's that simple . Praise is not 'A sometime thing, it is an all the time thing' (Psalm 34:1-3).

“Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.” Psalms 8:2 KJV
‭‭
Let us consider the effect of praise on the Satan and his cohort. To properly understand you need an insight into his personality. Isaiah 14:4-16, Ezekiel 28:12-19 and Colossians 2:15, Hebrews 2:14-15, these passages give a synopsis of the transformation/ fall of Lucifer the anointed cherub to Satan the arch enemy/father of lies and his subsequent comprehensive defeat (Please read, study and meditate). We can draw a few conclusions about the personality of Satan from these.

1. He is a self centred megalomaniac who lost his coveted place as the chief worshiper in heaven
2. He has a deep desire to be worshipped
3. He is envious of us, because the coveted place of praise which he lost, now belong to us
4. He is a Defeated, Disarmed foe whose only real weapon are lies and wiles
‭‭
Now if you put these elements together the effect of praise on Satan and devils is similar to what you get when you shine a bright light into a dark corner and see rats scuttle away. In the presence of a life exuding of praise, he feels a sense of shame, loss, frustration and helplessness . This is the reason why demons depart from a life or environment perfumed with praise. Demons loosened their grip on Saul whenever David ministered to God, it even made a mad King sane. Jehoshaphat won an impossible war, the impregnable wall of Jericho came down. In Matthew 21:18 when Christ was challenged by the Pharisees concerning the Praise He received, He referred them to Psalms 8:2. Note that He substituted 'perfected praise' for 'ordained strength '. We have a simple equation here : Perfected Praise = Ordained Strength. Your tongue/mouth is like a two edge sword where praise is concerned. The second part of Psalms 8:2, says the purpose of the ordained strength is to stop the enemy in his track. I wonder whether Churches and denominations who are so consumed with fighting the devil are reading the same bible that we have, I really wonder. I will suggest you meditate on Psalms 149:5-9, this is a picture describing spiritual warfare. Did you notice that it says 'let them sing aloud upon their BED and ends up saying this is the prerogative of ALL THE SAINTS (without exception) ? Remember this the next time Satan tries to harass you. In summary, a life of praise (Thanksgiving, Praise and worship ) towards God is a potent reminder to Satan that he is a defeated foe and you know it.

“Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the Lord.” Psalms 149:5-9 KJV
‭‭
CONCLUSION
PERFECTED PRAISE IS ORDAINED STRENGTH THAT STOPS THE ENEMY IN HIS TRACKS

Ps
These are truths that need to be experiential concepts, in the next capsule we would see how praise enhances the manifestation of grace in your life. Don't stop shinning!

GOD'S PILLS 2016 : CAPSULE 27

WALKING IN THE SUPERNATURAL SUPPLY OF GOD:
A LIFE OF PRAISE:DEVELOPING ATTITUDE FILLED WITH GRATITUDE; 

THE EFFECT OF PRAISE ON YOU

“My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭57:7‬ ‭KJV‬‬

We are looking at the eighth principle in WALKING IN THE SUPERNATURAL SUPPLY OF GOD. I have called it 'Life of Praise: Developing attitude filled with gratitude'. In the last capsule, I explained that this impacts you, Satan and his cohort and lastly God or rather the manifestation of the goodness of God in your life. In this capsule I intend to show the effect it has on you. My drive in teaching these principles is to demystify the spiritual. I know that this sounds like an oxymoron, but think about it, the bible is the most spiritual book that ever existed and will ever exist and yet it is the most widely available and it exist in virtually every language. The reason is simple, God has a deep desire to communicate and reveal the person of Christ to everybody (John 5:39, 1Timothy 2:4-6). My earnest desire is that this simple principles will become part of your spiritual fabric and ultimately enhance your spiritual EFFICIENCY AND EFFECTIVENESS, (Please bare in mind that for the purposes of this study, Praise is used in the generic sense to include; Thanksgiving, Praise and Worship. Refer to capsule 27).

Looking at the effect of Praise on you, our index scripture is very instructive! When your heart is fixed on God, Praise is the effortless result. Praise is an expression of the emotions of your spirit. It shows the way you truly see God. It is impossible to be depressed if praise is truly flowing from your being, because depression is born of despair. When you have a revelation of the Resurrected Christ, the perfect redemption we have in Him and Grace available through Him, Praise (Thanksgiving, Praise and Worship) will be the fragrance coming from you.

“Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.”
‭‭Colossians‬ ‭2:7‬ ‭KJV‬‬

True Praise is evidence that you have assurance of a positive outcome to your petition. The commentary of Colossians 2:7, is that with Praise (thanksgiving), you become rooted and built up in Christ, not only that, Thanksgiving also makes your faith abound. One of the commonest statement among Christians is 'I want to activate my faith'. As good as this sounds, it is unhelpful. Our faith walk should not be in spurts, we are to LIVE and WALK by faith (Romans 1:17, 2 Corinthians 5:7). This dominant effect of Praise is to shift your focus from the physical (current situation and circumstance) to the spiritual, showing you the possibilities (Read capsules 18-20:2016, Principles 4th and 5th). The faith of Christ is already available in your spirit, Praise creates the platform for expression. Let me give you a practical approach , the next time you find yourself down in the dumps, spend time meditating on God's word, on His goodness and love, don't be in a rush. What this does is that it gives legitimacy, credibility and substance to your Praise. It makes it robust, you are not forcing it, it is real, faith then flows or abound (this is dynamics you see in most of the Psalms). One of the commonest mistake (in my opinion) is to ask people to Praise mechanically, this approach makes Praise hollow, temporary and because it's forced, it does not last because it is not properly fueled .

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:6-7‬ ‭KJV‬‬

No godly prayer is complete without praise, in fact every prayer, no matter the type should be a 'Praise Sandwich'. Praise (Thanksgiving) makes you qualify for greater manifestation of the blessings of God in you life. In Luke 17:12-19, Christ healed ten lepers, the only one that returned with Thanksgiving was made whole because he understood that your prayer is incomplete without thanksgiving.

CONCLUSION
ABOUND IN PRAISE, IT MAKES YOU ROOTED AND BUILT UP IN FAITH
IT IS NOT A ONE TIME THING, BUT AN ALL THE TIME THING (Ephesians 5:19-20)

Ps
In the next capsule we would consider the effect of Praise on Satan! As promised in capsule 26 we would end this series with two stories or parables of Christ (Luke 11:5-13, Luke 18:2-8), you will be blessed.
As always please link the capsule to your social media site, great things are happening.

GOD'S PILLS 2016 : CAPSULE 26

WALKING IN THE SUPERNATURAL SUPPLY OF GOD:
A LIFE OF PRAISE:DEVELOPING ATTITUDE FILLED WITH GRATITUDE

“It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: To shew forth thy  in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,” Psalm 92:1-2KJV

We have come to the eighth and last principle that we would discuss in this series. In discussing each of the principle, what I have done is to sow a seed or seeds. My prayer is that it has fallen on good soil so that it will flourish. There is no short cut, these are not formulas, I would like to reiterate, but spiritual habits. For you to flow in them , you must understand that you are a spirit , you are not just human . I have tried to codify these principles for the purposes of simplicity, but in actual fact they are like a fabric, interwoven. To recap, 1. God is your source, God is your only source 2. He anticipated all your needs, and made provision before they arose 3. The provision is always more abundant than the need 4. All that you need is in your born-again spirit 5. Faith gives you access to what He has provided by Grace 6. You are blessed to be a blessing 7. Hold no grudge. Amen!

In this capsule we would consider living A LIFE OF PRAISE: DEVELOPING ATTITUDE FILLED WITH GRATITUDE. I am using the word PRAISE in the generic sense, it covers Thanksgivings, which is expressing appreciation for certain privilege or favour both already received or anticipated. This can be universally applied to man or God. Praise, is an expression of admiration or honour in response to certain intrinsic qualities or achievements. This also can be appropriately directed at man and God. Lastly, Worship on the other hand is exclusively reserved for God without any exception (Luke 4:4-8, Exodus 34:14) To really understand the meaning of Worship we need to apply the 'law of first-mention' in bible interpretation. Worship was first mentioned in Genesis 22 with respect to Abraham's sacrifice of Isaac. The heart of worship is to offer one's life as an offering or sacrifice to God. It figures, since you have only one life, we offer it to the only one true God! This is the basic reason why we bring our offerings (money or otherwise) or anything that represents who we are to God exclusively. This is also the reason why angels refuse to receive any form of worship when they appear before men . Acts 12:21-23 is a lesson in the consequence of wrongly directed worship. With all these in mind, Thanksgiving is an expression of gratitude for favours we have received or hope to enjoy and Praise is in recognition of the intrinsic quality that is uncommon. Both of these can be for God or man, but WORSHIP is to offer your very essence, your life as it were and it can only be to God exclusively.

“For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.” Romans 14:7-8 KJV

With this in mind; Thanksgiving, Praise and of course Worship is not something we do occasionally or in spurts, but what we express continually. It should not be a chore but joy if we properly appreciate the first seven principles we talked about. When you live a life of praise, an attitude filled with gratitude, it affects Satan and his cohorts, it has an effect on you and lastly it affects the manifestation of God in your life. In the next capsule we would consider these three effects of praise.

CONCLUSION
‭‭PRAISE IS THE FRAGRANCE THAT MAKES YOUR LIFE A SWEET SMELLING SAVOUR

PS
At the end of this series we would look at two stories told by Christ which I believe have been completely misunderstood and interpreted (Luke 11:5-13, Luke 18:2-8), you will be blessed.
