I was sitting in White Castle as usual, reading and studying the word one day. There were three men sitting in the seat directly opposite.  I could not help overhearing their conversation and had some small talk with them.  As they left, one of the men gave me four nuts. They were pecans.

I became hungry later in the day as I did some work at the Brooklyn Public Library. I suddenly remembered the pecans and took them out, cracking the shells with my teeth. The flavor was tart and as I ate them I felt my body becoming cleansed. It was a feeling that I had never had before when eating food.

It then came to my spirit that these men were angels. The entire incident was very unusual and the angel of the Lord had given me the nuts deliberately as if they had been intended for me that day.

Thanks angels!

They travel like any regular people in order to protect you in the air. They read books, sleep, relax, listen to music. Furthermore, Jesus flies  in the air with His children. If you are flying and fretting about your safety. listen carefully and you may hear Him say:

“Imagine! I am on the ship and the disciples are fretting!”

Have a great day

Where are they getting their information from? January 24, 2008

Many people claim to receive information from angels. However, those who are wise must investigate the power source of these individuals prior to coming under their power. This is because these individuals may very well be witches (Ex 22: 18), wizards (Deut 18:11), necromancers (Deut 18: 11), charmers (Ps 58: 6), enchanters (Deut 18: 10),  consulters with familiar spirits (Deut 18:11).

All of these terms are found in scriptures and refer to people who us incantations, enchantments, practice magic, witchcraft, fortunetelling, has a familiar spirit (demon) , consults with the dead about the future.  In fact, God warned Israel to put away these people from the land and even to kill them. He wanted  to be the one His people consulted about the future:

So why are you trying to find out the future by consulting mediums and psychics? Do not listen to their whisperings and mutterings. Can the living find out the future from the dead? Why not ask your God? (Isa 8: 19)

Why should we refrain from seeking the help of these individuals

a. Devils are the source of their power.

There is a truth in scripture related to idol worship which applies here. God wants His people to avoid idol worship because demons are the power source behind the miracles, signs and wonders. Here are some evidences in scriptures:

Deut 32: 17 They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.

b. Idol worship is equivalent to demon worship

This is similar to the previous point, but I wanted to make it clear. Here is what the scriptures say:

Ps 106: 34-37

They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded them

But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works

And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils

And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with , and shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood

Also read 1 Cor 10: 19,20

c. The demons which are represented by the idols will lead you astray:

Zech 10: 2  “for the idols have spoken vanity, and the diviners have seen a lie and have told false dreams. They comfort in vain..”

King Ahab learnt this the hard way and went to his death. Furthermore, do the witches ever tell you that your departed loved one is in a place of torment? Do they ever tell about Jesus and the need for eternal salvation?

God made us and wants to be worshipped as God. Any nation or person who worships devils or seeks information from them brings a curse on themselves and the wrath of God. Pharaoh thought that his demons were more powerful than God, but the Lord God exposed the futility of serving them by annihilating him and his armies. 

d. Idol/demon worship is accompanied by impurity and other evil works

Scriptures and our knowledge of the occult reveal that idol worship/demon worship/witchcraft is often accompanied by:

  • human sacrifice (of innocent blood) which pollutes the land with blood and brings a curse even as Cain was  cursed. DEMONS NEED BLOOD IN OR DER TO GET SOULS INTO HELL.  Israel adopted the practices of the heathen and sacrificed their children in  fire (Ps 106: 38). 1 Kings 21: 16 says that King Manasseh shed innocent blood very much and filled Jerusalem with it. What exactly did he do? He made his son (and others) to pass through the fire and became  a witch (2 Kings 21: 6).

The practice of human sacrifices  causes me to wonder about the power source behind the abortion practice. Is it a disguised satanic source for human sacrifices?

  • Idol/demon worship is accompanied by sexual perversion.  Second Kings 23: 7 reveals that the worship of demons was accompanied by ritual homosexuality. Moreover, this was practiced in the house of the Lord.  This explains why nations that accept witchcraft are invaded by this sin and why their churches suffer. 
  • Whose report will we believe? God warns us to escape. Let’s seek God’s way and escape His wrath which will come on those who practice witchcraft. Be blessed today!

The masquerade of the witch of Endor January 23, 2008

God exposed the true activities of the people who claim to seek information from the after world and spirit guides etc. Here is the unfortunate situation of King Saul who  could no longer hear from God and decided to seek help from a woman with a familiar spirit:

Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and enquire of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor” (1 Sam 28: 7).

According to Strong’s in blueletterbible.org, someone with a familiar spirit is a  necromancer, one who evokes the dead or  spirit of a dead one.  However, the truth is that  these mediums are actually communicating with demons who impersonate the dead person.

How do I know that this is true? The encounter between the medium and Saul reveals that the she had expected a demon with whom she was familiar  to come forth. However, Samuel himself did so:

1 Sam 28: 11 Then said the woman, Whom shall I bring up unto thee? And he said, Bring me up Samuel

1 Sam 28: 12  And when the woman saw Samuel, she cried with a loud voice: and the woman spake to Saul, saying, Why hast thou deceived me? for thou art Saul.

The medium knew that she was disobeying God’s command that His people should not seek help from witches, mediums, fortunetellers etc:

 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God (Lev 19: 31).

God knows that this is satans’ big masquerade to bring people into bondage and to seek worship. He has given prophets who reveal His mind.

In the upcoming blog, I will write more about God’s rationale for giving this commandment. Blessings.

Who masquerades as Angels of God? January 22, 2008

Yesterday I wrote about the astral traveller who said that the Angel Michael who defended me was not the one she knew. These were the exact words with which I ended the post:

These people are being deceived because satan and other demons are apparently producing a “heaven” and masquerading as angels of the Lord”

How can this be true?

The evidence to support this great masquerade comes from scripture which teaches that satan is a deceiver who mixes truth with lies. We need to remember that he used to be the chief worship leader in heaven. He is quite familiar with the angels and what heaven looks like and uses this knowledge to give power to people, bringing them under his control.

Satan is the black sheep in God’s family. His purpose is to be exalted and to be worshipped as god. He uses any device necessary to attract people’s allegiance to his kingdom and to send souls to hell. Here are some ways in which he does this:

a. Satan tempts people in the occult with the acquisition of power.  He tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden by telling her that she and Adam would become like gods, knowing both good and evil if they rebelled against God. Furthermore, he insisted that God was lying to them and that they would not die if they did what he said.

Eve did not believe that she was already like God-made in His image and likeness. Why did she want to become a god? She lost fellowship with her God because she obeyed the tempter.

The witches, wizards, palm-readers etc do have a power base. This is revealed in scriptures, for example, when Pharaoh’s magicians were able to mimic only 2 of Moses’ miracles. 

b. The power base of the occult is limited. God always shows up the inadequacy of satan’s power base when he wants to make the diviners or false prophets mad (Isa 44:25). Pharaoh’s magicians could not interpret his dream and only Joseph could do so. Daniel in Babylon was the only one able to bring revelation to Kings Nebuchadnezzar and Belshazzar. Prophet Elijah confounded the prophets of Baal and brought down fire from heaven. Jesus cast out countless devils and gave us  power over the kingdom of darkness. Apostle Paul cast out the fortune telling demon from the fortune teller. Scriptures are replete with examples of the power of the Greater one in the believer.

c. Satan can and does promise to reward people with the glory and splendour of the earth in exchange for their worship . He did this to Jesus of all people in the temptation in the wilderness. Jesus overcame him by telling him to get lost and to worship God alone. Ironically, the earth belongs to God and not to the devil, but he does teach people wicked secrets that can allow  them to acquire wealth and power in the earth (hence secret societies etc).

d. The power of lying spirits. Jesus taught us that satan is a liar and the father of lies (Jn 8: 44). There are lying spirits that accomplish his purpose of deception. Second Chronicles 18 revealed that the prophets of Baal were filled with a lying spirit that prophesied to King Ahab, causing him to lose his life in battle. Revelation also reveals that lying spirits can work miracles and deceive the nations of the earth (Rev 16: 14). This explains why the occult can work miracles.

 Don’t be fooled by the occult. Satan has lying spirits which masquerade as angels of the Lord and as spirits of dead people. I  will give proof  next time when I speak about Saul and the witch of Endor (1 Samuel 28).

The angel of fearlessness January 19, 2008

I was meditating on Sunday 13th January when I heard the words, “there is an angel of fearlessness”.  2 Timothy 1: 7 says that “… God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

The spirit of fear causes people to become afraid and fearful. The angel of fearlessness helps us to be bold and strong.

Hope you find help and strength today

The angel of prosperity January 10, 2008

Yes, there is an angel who assists us to lead successful and fulfilling lives.  Apostle John told the believers that he wished above all things  that they would “prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth” (1 John 3: 2).

The Greek word for prosper means:

a. to grant a prosperous and expeditious journey, to lead by a direct and easy way

b.  to grant a successful issue, to cause to prosper

c.  be successful

God assigns angels to ensure that our journeys or endeavors are successful, expeditious, direct (no wandering) and easy. He has angels assigned to assist us to prosper. We  can enlist these angels’ help by asking for assistance in the particular area. This is not praying, but just making a request as if asking a friend for help or a favor.

We see Angels of Prosperityat work in the bible, although they are not labelled with this title. For example, Abraham was apparently accustomed  to having angels guide him as he journeyed in the land of Caanan. He revealed this when he sent his steward to look for a wife for his son, telling him that the angel of the Lord would go before him (Gen 24: 7, 40).

The steward prayed to God asking for specific signs to be revealed in the woman   who would be Isaac’s wife. His request was fulfilled exactly as he asked, confirming that the Lord had indeed sent angels before him to make his quest successful.  He recounted his experience to Laban, uncle of the bride, telling him that Abraham had prophesied that “The LORD… will send his angel with thee, and prosper thy way; and thou shalt take a wife for my son of my kindred, and of my father’s house” (Gen 24: 40). Even the successful choice of a mate is considered to be a sign of prosperity.

This shows me that we too can use this strategy to enlist the help of the Angel of Prosperity. Years ago, I was a member of a prayer group that would pray for people in their homes etc.  We learnt to pray and ask the Lord to send angels ahead of us into the homes and places where we would pray for people. Our missions were always easier when we did so. However, I need to use this strategy more often in my every day life.

Here’s another example. Jacob saw angels ascending and descending upon a ladder between heaven and earth as he escaped Esau’s death threat.  The angels were demonstrating their closeness to him and drawing his attention to the Lord who stood above the ladder, giving a promise to bless him in the land that he would live (Gen 28). This was a reassuring and wonderful event, giving him consolation that the Lord was with him. His response was to make a vow to serve the Lord if His promise was fulfilled.  Angels are closer to us than we realize

The angel of the Lord spoke to Jacob in a dream, telling him how to mate the animals that would be strong and reproduce (an early example of genetics). Jacob followed the Lord’s  instructions and his animals multiplied exceeding and were stronger than his uncle’s (Gen 31: 1- 13).

When he returned home many years later after working for his Uncle Laban, the angels of the Lord met him to reassure him of their protection. He had tricked and robbed his brother many years earlier and was afraid that Esau was  still angry. The angels of the Lord had dealt already with that situation (Gen 32).

The bible proliferates with many more examples. God demonstrated Abraham’s revelation that angels go before His people when His angel led Israel through the wilderness. Isa 63: 9 says that the angel of His presence saved them in their affliction.

Practical application

We can see from the Greek that prosperity encompasses more than wealth acquisition and is very broad in nature. In fact, God created man with the intent that he should propser. This was established when he told Adam and Eve to be fruitful, multiply etc and gave them access to earth’s resources. He uses angels to help us to become successful.

Prince Igoni told me in June 2007 that he was the Angel of Prosperity.  He has been teaching me how to prosper in my spirit and to trust God even when I do not have access to resources. I have experienced uncommon favor and  angelic help from the “terror by night”,  among other things. I have received instructions on how I can prosper materially but have to wait for the appointed time.

The angels of the Lord are closer than you know. They are sent to help us to prosper. The examples of those who have gone on before provide a guide as to how these angels function in our lives. I hope that you have been blessed!

Angels always carry out their duties faithfully and lovingly.  They will give you information about issues that puzzle you, but cannot reveal some things unless the Lord permits until the due time.

 I have seen angels on buses, flying along with airplanes, in visions,  in the library, on the streets. They will instruct     the individual   on the direction to go. I was once in a store and a middle aged woman on a cell phone loudly said, “leave now”. She was an angel warning me to leave the vicinity. 

Thank God for His wonderful angels!

The funny young man January 8, 2008

He sat at the adjacent computer, ear phones plugged in, avidly listening to music from a MP player.  He was Asian, had a mop of black hair, a funny little moustache. I did not pay attention to him until he called the library assitant at the desk for help. He had a funny, sort of squeaky voice, rather amusing.

He had that young man running back and forth from the desk as he called repeatedly for assistance with problems related to a music download from the internet.

He had me in peals of laughter, because the combination of the hair, moustache, squeaky voice and  technical difficulties were very amusing.  Not only that, the young man at the desk was becoming exasperated with his repeated and ceaseless calls for help on the unsolvable problem and his non verbal language was beginning to show this. 

I really tried hard not to laugh, because this was the same assistant who had been cheeky to me the previous day. Now here he was, obediently responding to this funny young man. The assistant had no choice but to respond to the calls and the funny young man was shameless, asking him to wait so he could write down some instructions he had just been given.   I broke up again as the assistant walked away in exasperation, not complying with the request.

You had to be there to see it. You had to be there to see him slouching in his chair, vigorously rocking his body to the beat of the music. I like to believe that he was an angel sent to amuse me.  Thanks angel!

Angels visit January 7, 2008

Angels are very loving and enjoy visiting the children of God. They do so in many  ways such as assisting you and keeping your company when doing important assignments. If you hear a thought in your spirit,  an angel could very well be assisting you. They sometimes keep you rocking with laughter with their various  witty comments. They never leave you alone. For example, if walking on the streets, they pass and expect you to recognize and greet them.

What wonderful friends you are, precious angels! Blessings!
