YOU HAVE THE POWER


YOU HAVE THE POWER

Yes, you have the power. The scripture says in John 1:12 that ‘as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name’. If you have received Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and savior, oh yes, if you are truly born-again, you have the power!!!

What kind of power am I talking about? All power!!! For Jesus said ‘All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth…. and then turned unto you his beloved saying…’behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall by any means hurt you’ (Mathew 28:18 , Luke 10:19). Listen friends, YOU HAVE THE POWER!!! Power is in degree/categories, that is why the scripture says ‘let every soul be subject to the higher powers’ (Romans 13:11)

Wait a minute as you rejoice in the truth. Please permit me to show you how you can activate the ultimate power. God became flesh in the person of Jesus Christ who came to this world that you and I can be reconciled to God. Jesus died for our sins. He died a very painful death. As he hung on the cross, during the most gruesome torture, ‘one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water’ (john 19:34). He shed his blood for you and me. Just like you and I, Jesus had options. He could have refused to be humiliated, he could have asked one of the angels to take out those that wanted to nail him to that cross…but ‘he endured the cross, despising the shame’ so that you and I can be saved from our sins.

How think ye? Jesus could have resisted and refused to die in the face of that agonizing torment, but he made a choice of RIGHTLY exercising the power that he had to freely give his life away that you and I may be saved. Read with me in the book of John chapter 10 verse 18…’ No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again’. Jesus had the power to release himself from the cross even when they had almost sniffed life out of him, he had the power!!! But, ‘he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross’ (Philippians 2:8). Jesus said, ‘I lay it down of myself’. He had power to lay his life down, and he laid it down of his own accord!

How is this relevant to you?

You have the power to give God the only thing he is requesting of you, and what is that request? So simple! … and you alone have the power to do it. The request is found in the book of Proverbs chapter 23 and verse 26. ‘My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways’. See, everything that you do or that happens to you on earth has to do with your heart, and whatever has control over your heart has the whole of you.

You want power for this, power for that. I tell you, the ultimate power that a believer can receive is called the power of his resurrection. Apostle Paul yearned for this power as he prayed that he may know the power of his resurrection (Philippians 3:10). Why? Until you activate the power of his resurrection, you do not manifest the ultimate power. You have a sim card in your phone, if it is not activated, you can not enjoy the benefit.

All the trinity of God is involved in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead (Roman 8:11, I:4). If you will also freely give your heart to the Lord today, all the trinity will also be involved in your life and situation, and your situation will turn around for the best it could ever be.

Will you surrender your heart to Jesus today? You have the power to give it to him!!!

Does God ever think evil?


God does not and will not think evil! I had to ask you this question to be sure you know who you are in Christ Jesus. Please come with me as we open the scriptures.

Proverbs 23:7 affirms that as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’. So is he! Not, so he will be! He that thinks evil is evil. ‘Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world’ (1 John 4:17). God expects you and I to be as he is while we are in this world, that is to be people who do not think evil in their hearts. Why?

You can hear God more clearly when he speaks to you if your mind is not polluted because one of the ways God speaks to his children is through their thoughts. Evil imagination is one of the two reasons why God destroyed humanity during the time of Noah. He ‘saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually’ (Genesis 6:5).

Unfortunately, there are many people that think evil in this present world, including born-again Christians. They can’t think straight for one hour!

Listen friends,’ deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil’ (Proverbs 12:20). Bro Yinka, what are you saying? You are a deceitful man if your thought process is continually evil. I was born in the part of the world where as a courtesy you invite visitors to eat with you when they visit at a time when you are eating. Many times, the invitation is deceitful. For if you happen to invite a man who is truly hungry, your heart begins to criticize him as soon as he heavily descends on your food, wondering if the man doesn’t have common sense to know his limit. You are grudging within you as your guest takes the fattest meat in your meal! As the Amplified Bible states in proverbs 23:7, Eat and drink you say to him, yet your heart is not with him (but you are grudging the cost). Many times, when people do what seems good to you, they do it with ulterior motives.

John the Baptist eats food, and we are told that he eats locust and wild honey (Mark 1:6), but I suppose John never eats in people’s houses when invited, so they labelled him as a man that hath a devil (Mathew 11:18). Jesus eats in their houses when invited, and as they watch him eat, the evil thoughts of their heart were… ‘Behold a man gluttonous, a winebibber” (Mathew 11:19). Aw! why would you invite him to dine with you if you really don’t want him to express himself? Oh, ‘the human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked’ (Jeremiah 17:9 NLT).

I know there are many born-again Christians whose hearts are predominantly filled with the strangest thoughts that are contrary to God.

Do you think evil? Are your thoughts continually evil? You can be set free today if you are already a born-again Christian! Ask your father to liberate your mind from the contaminations that are prevalent upon your heart. Then, going forward, take positive steps to renew your mind. Following the underlisted suggestions may be helpful:

1.       Always say what you mean regardless! (James 2:12)

2.       Renew your mind constantly. Take a cue from Philippians 4:8 about the kind of things you should think on.

The Lord bless you richly.

Please continue to follow the Lord (John 12:26)

Saturday afternoon, on September 12, 2015, my family & I were travelling on Douglasville/Hiram highway in Georgia, and it was my wife driving us. She was at top speed, and I noticed that she didn’t decrease her speed even though the cars ahead of us have slowed down and stopped to give room for a vehicle that was turning left (off) the highway. I screamed ‘slow down, don’t you see the cars ahead have stopped!’ Her response was ‘I don’t know that they have stopped’. My wife did not realize that the cars she was following have all stopped!!!

Jesus said, If any man serves me, let him follow me (John 12:26). Following someone means you are able to see the one leading the way and then follow in his footsteps. Tell me, are you still following Jesus? You need to stop when he stops, so you don’t ram into your leader. It is dangerous to collide with the Lord (Luke 20: 17-18). You need to turn where he turns, so you don’t get lost. Following him means that you have your eyes open to see the one you are following. Do you still have Jesus in view? Can you see him? But, we see Jesus(Heb. 2:9).

Following him means that there is no barrier in between you and him. What barriers are shielding you from seeing the Lord the way he wants you to see him?

Those that follow the Lord are ‘his sheep’ and they are the only people qualified to enjoy his tremendous care (John 10: 27, 11-13). Following someone means that you have to be able to hear the one you are following. It might be disastrous for you not to hear when he says there is danger in the pathway you are treading on, and tells you what to avoid… but you can’t hear him. Jesus said ‘my sheep hears my voice’. Do you still hear his voice? When was the last time he spoke to you? Many Christians today are living on outdated spiritual instructions. You need to hear his voice to get an update!

Listen; there are landmines everywhere, so you just don’t walk carelessly in this way of salvation. You don’t know where your enemies have planted the landmines, waiting for you to just walk over and explode. Hold up my goings in the way oh Lord that mine footsteps slip not (psalms 17: 5). I implore you to follow Jesus just like a man that is blind will follow his guard dog, so that you don’t fall into the pits of your enemy.

It was necessary for Elisha to see Elijah at departure time to receive the double portion of Elijah’s anointing …. Elijah said ‘Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so (2kings 2:10)’. Elijah said… Nevertheless, if thou see me…that is, ‘if thou continue to follow me’…..it shall be so unto you. My friend, you need to reappraise your situation, and refocus on the Lord as may be necessary.

Suppose you are no longer following in the footsteps of Christ, please retrace your steps and go back to him. I pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. God bless you all.

Profiting With Tongues (4)

Topic 4: Getting to Speak the Tongues

The fact is Every Believer has the Holy Spirit in them...
And when I say believer, I don't mean a church goer or someone who was born into the Christian religion...

A believer is someone who believes that Jesus died and resurrected by the Glory of God for Him/her and has as a result confessed Jesus as His lord... Simple

And as simple as that is, the bible says it takes the Holy spirit to do so...

1 Corinthians 12:3
Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

So if you believe that he rose again, beyond the fact that you watched passion of the christ on tv, but because you heard it in the word of God, and you believe it with your heart that he is your lord and God... Then you are a believer, and another fact is; you have the Holy Spirit... Amen...

Let's begin with John 20
19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.
21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
23 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.
24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.

You see, those guys saw that Jesus was risen, and then they rejoiced, they rejoiced because they saw that their Lord was risen, his side which was pierced and the holes created by nails on His palms. And feet were proofs to them that he's risen, and they rejoiced, their rejoicing was a sign that they believed, and the moment Jesus saw that they believe, He Breathed on Them... Receive ye the Holy spirit he said...

But you know what? None of them spoke with tongues... They received the Holy spirit, but Nothing happened... Nothing...

One of them went with his own Holy Spirit to tell Thomas that Jesus is risen, and thomas refused to believe, not because he didn't have a gullible nature, but because Jesus must be revealed by the Holy spirit, (not explained) before any man can believe... So Jesus showed up again... And thomas believed Him as his Lord and God...

Glory to God...

But None of these guys spoke in tongues yet... Why? Because though they got the Holy Spirit, they wouldn't manifest him until they are filled with Him...

So how did they got filled... Follow me...
Luke 24:49
And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

Jesus was talking to thesame people he breathed on that they will be endued , endued means Clothed... It means to put on like a garment, so he said they should tarry in a place until they be clothed with the power from heaven...

He said the power they will be clothed with will be the one that is from on high

To therefore be clothed with power is what it means to be FILLED with the Holy Spirit

Acts 1: referring to Jesus;
4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.
5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.
8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

He said they shall be baptised with the Holy Ghost... To be baptised with something means to be immersed into that thing... It means to be engulfed or drenched with it... It means to be super soaked with it... And remain in it...

He said they shall receive power to be able to express divinity on the earth, be a witness of his resurrection and cause changes all around the world, when the Holy Spirit, shall come upon them... Don't forget they once received this same Holy Spirit... The bible says it was then that they could understand the scriptures... And really believe Christ... Luke 24:45

So what he is saying in actual sense is that when what is inside them, shall come upon them, then they shall have power... Can you imagine that?

He said when this Holy Spirit which you have received he is the spirit of Faith, 2cor.4:13, he is what makes us believe on Jesus, he said when he shall overflow from your belly and cover you up, then there will be power for you...

So the Holy Spirit cannot come upon you if he is not already in you, and him coming upon you is him springing up in you to overflow...

John makes it clear
John 4:14 (Jesus talking)
But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

The water is the word of God (eph 5:26), to drink it is to believe it

John chapter 7 now adds
37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
39( But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Can you connect that? When you believe the word of God, that word becomes in you a well that springs up as the Holy Spirit... And then he said out of your belly Rivers of living waters, that are sprung up from that well shall flow...

I love verse 39; he says Jesus was referring to the Holy Spirit... Which they which believe His Glorification shall receive... Hallelujah

So the disciples waited at the upper room ten days after Jesus' ascension... Because these were the first set of people to have this experience, No one have to wait for ten days now to be filled, except in unbelief... You can be filled deliberately... Any time, anywhere, and even now...

Acts 2:4
And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

That was at the first experience, they were filled and they spoke with tongues, But now, we could speak to be filled...

And if you never spoke in tongues before, though this might be easier if you have someone who already speaks in tongues around to lay hands on you, and also pray in tongues for you, But I also believe you can have it even alone...
Its simple, I believe you can speak in tongues right now, Just get alone, your room is good enough, and Just in very few words, ask the Holy spirit to fill you... Believing that you received when you ask Mark 11:24

And then I tell you, you will receive utterance...

Wait, utterance is not when you begin to misbehave, or talk when you don't want to talk, utterance is not having something grab your mouth without your will and then begin to make noise through your mouth... Many wait for this and they miss out...

Utterance is some gentle words(Unknown words or terms) impressed on your mind as you open your mind to the Holy spirit to be filled, which you WILL have to open your mouth and say out...

This is how it happens; as you pray, or as you are reading these words, some words that you never knew will be impressed on your mind, all you have to do is voice them out... Know for sure that it won't make sense, and it won't have meaning to your senses and also know that what you say don't matter, it don't have to be strange or unique, I can sound anyhow... Free your mind... what what you say does to you is what matters

It gets you drunk with the Holy Spirit if you continue, the utterance at start will be coming in trickles, little by little, but as you continue, it will spring up, and spring up until it becomes a river and get you soaked, until you yourself begins to swim in the ocean of the power that you have generated

I have prayed for people that they should be filled with the Holy Spirit, and they refuse to speak in tongues, and when I ask; why don't you speak, some of them would say I don't know what to speak...

But here is what the word says;

1 Corinthians 14:2
For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.

You see? He calls it UNKNOWN... So I don't expect you to know what to speak... You Just speak... Yeah! Just speak... It takes faith in the fact that God lives in you to speak, and as you say the first word, your senses might compete with it, But if you don't mind your senses and continue, based on faith, not feelings, you will be launched into higher dimensions of God's power from Glory to Glory...

2 Corinthians 4:13
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;

And as you continue, you won't be able to differentiate between when it got to your mind and when you spoke it out

He says HE( any human being) that speaketh, he didn't say anyone that tongues begins to flow out of their mouth unknowingly... He says whoever speaketh... Verse 4 he says he edifies himself, that is, he makes himself strong

You WILL have to open your mouth and speak... It is by faith, and not by feelings... Some strange feelings sometimes do accompany this experience anyway, which don't have to be for everyone as well... It doesn't happen to everybody, But everyone can speak by faith... We don't walk by feelings... And until you speak, you are locked out of the whole experience...

1 Corinthians 14:15
What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.

He already said the way to pray with the spirit is to pray with tongues so he said HE WILL DECIDE TO PRAY WITH THE SPIRIT...

Hallelujah...

And as you do, the Holy Spirit will become stirred up on your inside to overflow... You will readily carry God... You will be filled with his full Load... Just continue talking it...

Paul in his letter to timothy said;

2 Timothy 1:6
Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.

And I tell you, that the way to stir up that Gift of God which is the Holy ghost is to pray in tongues

1cor 14:14 says when I pray in tongues, my spirit prays... Oh! Glory!!!

Jude 1:20
But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

Hallelujah... As you pray in tongues, something is being built up in you, it is the awesome power of God...

Hallelujah... We will continue from here
Watch out for topic 5

Blessings!!!

Profiting with Tongues (1)


Topic 1: God Wants You To Speak With New Tongues

Speaking in tongues or praying in tongues is not a selective doctrine that some modern day churches are venturing into...
It is God's intention, even since the foundation of the world that there will be some people on the earth, who are believers, who all speak in tongues, both to God and to other believers...

On the day of Pentecost, we read that the 120 disciples who were at the upper room ALL spoke with new tongues... to the amazement of onlookers...
They said several many things about it, you know carnal men now... Some of them said "these guys must be drunk" (I guess they must have had some demonstrations too, like that of a drunkard) others said "no they are speaking our dialect, but these are Jews" some said they are glorifying God...

But whatever they said about it has Nothing to do with it... They are carnal men after all, so their observation doesn't matter...

The bible says tongues is for a sign to them (1cor.14:22), it means that it is something that's beyond their reasoning... They can't figure it out, they could assume anything about it, all that we as believer have to do is to Know what we are doing and get result through it.

Act 2:39 says the promise is Unto YOU... I mean you who has believed on Jesus... And who is reading this... God intended that you will speak with tongues, among other spiritual manifestations, and as it appears, it seems speaking with tongues is where it begins.

Jesus said this signs shall follow them that believe, he said in my name shall they cast out devils, they shall speak with new tongues... Mark 16:17

It is God's express desire, he wants you to speak in new tongues...

See what I found in Isaiah 28:11-12: ‘For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear’.

He said speaking with another tongue is the rest and the refreshing wherewith You will cause your weary self to rest...

Are you weary? Financially, academically, spiritually, maritally, whatever it is, God wants to refresh you with tongues... Not with shouting the name of Jesus 7times or shouting die by fire... It is by speaking with tongues

I will point you to just two verses from the bible and then we'll continue later

1 Corinthians 2:7; But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

He says we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery... The wisdom which has been ordained even before the world unto our glory...

He said we communicate that OUR Glory by speaking God's wisdom in a mystery, he says it is a hidden wisdom, it is an unexplainable wisdom, you may not express the glory if you don't speak it, God intended that we will express his Glory as we speak the mystery

And see the other verse: 1 Corinthians 14:2
For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.

He says when you talk tongues, c'mon! he says you are speaking Mysteries... Well if you will ask me other ways to speak mysteries, I don't think I know, But I know this one for sure, he says when we speak with tongues, we are speaking mysteries unto God, NO MAN understands... So those in Acts chapter 2 that said they are speaking our dialect were confused (don't mind them). No man understands anyone who speaks in tongues, except by the Spirit... Though I have several times interpreted other people's tongues, but it isn't by the senses, it is by the Spirit...

He says HOWBEIT in the spirit, he speaketh Mysteries... Oh! Glory, can you see? When you speak with tongues, you are speaking mysteries, Unto God. And that mystery you are speaking had been ordained by God before the world unto Your Glory.

Eph 1:12 says God wants us to be UNTO his glory...
And as you speak with tongues, you are plugging yourself into the reality of that eternal intention of God...

You become a manifestation of His Glory...
That's God's wisdom... That it sounds foolish to some is the more proof that it is God's wisdom....

Hallelujah...

This is just the beginning; we haven't scratched the surface yet...
Roll in your question and observations...



We'll continue in a moment
Blessings!!!

Perfecta Word-Line Mission Statement


The goal of Perfecta Word-Line is to distribute the Word of God free of charge, by every available means, speaking the truth in love, compacting together  that which every joint (any believer) supplieth, so that you and I ( the Church)  may grow up into Christ in all things, which is the head, even Christ:  until God’s children be perfected.

The Lord spoke to me, and gave me a divine call into the gospel ministry at about 5am, on Sunday, March 26, 1989 while I was in room 12 Adekunle Fajuyi Hall, studying to be a civil engineer at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria. Perfecta Word-Line is a result of what God later told me on Sunday, June 7, 1992 between 8am and 8.30am, in room 259 Fajuyi Hall Annex, in the same university.

I am grateful to be ordained a prisoner of Christ, being the chiefest of sinners, raised up by the Lord to show the exceeding graciousness of my Lord Jesus Christ.

Brethren, there is no limit to what God can achieve through you… if you are willing, and obedient.

I covet your prayers as the Holy Spirit leads you.

Blessings.

Bro. Adeyinka  Adeyemo
