WHEN SATAN WANTS TO DESTROY YOU, HE WILL ISOLATE YOU AND MAGNIFY EVERYTHING AROUND YOU SO THAT YOU NO LONGER SEE THE FAITHFULNESS OF GOD.
NO MATTER WHAT YOU LOSE, IF THE DEVIL DOES NOT SUCCEED IN TAKING AWAY YOUR JOY, KNOW THAT EVERYTHING YOU LOST ONLY WENT ON ERRAND, IT IS COMING BACK.
NO MATTER WHAT YOU LOSE IN LIFE, MAKE UP YOUR MIND TO NOT LOSE JOY; JOY IS A REALM YOU ENTER TO GUARANTEE YOUR HARVEST.
EVERY TIME YOU STEP INTO SEASONS WHERE THINGS DON’T SEEM TO BE WORKING IN YOUR LIFE, YOU MUST OBTAIN GRACE TO ENGAGE THE PROPHETIC.
THERE’S A LEVEL OF ARROGANCE THAT IS IN THE WORLD TODAY THAT WILL KEEP PUNISHING MANY PEOPLE AND THEY WILL KEEP GOING THROUGH NEEDLESS PAIN BECAUSE OF THE ARROGANCE OF NEGLECTING THE PROPHETIC.
IT IS AN ERROR IF YOU FIND YOURSELF IGNORING THE PROPHETIC.

-Apostle Joshua Selman at Koinonia on ‘HE THAT OVERCOMETH’ (Part 2).

I want to share with you five keys that you must engage with every time you meet the days of adversity, seasons that are uncomfortable in your life; there are five biblical keys that are the roadmap for you. I give you a guarantee by the integrity of the Word of God, if you follow these five keys, they will inevitably bring you triumph and victory over any situation.

Pray in one minute and declare that the Lord should grant you the miracle of an open eyes.
This is a prophetic word for someone; you will not end up in that situation.

While you are there, I want you to know that His majesty is coming with triumph. He will do it in the open, in the presence of everyone and they will know that He has come to you as Ebenezer in the name of Jesus Christ.

1). The revelation of the love of God. You must have a strong revelation of the love of God for you. You must draw your strength from the fact that you are His beloved. Very simple statement but it’s powerful.

1 John 3:1, Jeremiah 31:3
When you have the revelation of the love of God, then you know that He is not silent. So rest in His love and cast all of your care on Him.

You are not the first to fail in business, listen, please rest in His love and cast all of your cares on Him. You are not the first to go through a barren situation that seems shameful, so rest in His love and cast all of your cares on Him…
This is a prophetic word to a family and to an individual, there are times when the results are not obvious, it is very painful because there’s no explanation you can give; there are times when people will ask you, where is your fasting and where is your prayer? – Rest in His love and cast all of your cares on Him. There are times when you should not be embarrassed to be a child again and let Abba Father carry you.
Romans 8:28
If you learn to see through the eyes of the Spirit, you will be grateful. So learn to be thankful and say thank You. Lord, I do not know what you are doing but I am grateful because in Your wisdom, I trust your love for me.
Be still and know that He is God.
When Satan wants to destroy you, he will isolate you and magnify everything around you so that you no longer see the faithfulness of God, all you see are mountains around, the situations that seem to negate what God has said. Hear me, I am speaking to you by the Spirit, be strong. There is something called the life of an overcomer. You can stand and look at everything; “I will be still and know You are God”.

Find strength in the love of God. A Christian is not just one who goes to church, a believer is one who is so jealously loved by God of Heaven.

Look beyond your challenges, no matter what the pain is, look beyond it and look at Jesus; don’t just look at Him as the powerful God, you need to look at Him as Father; “Lord I know that You love me, Your jealousy has been so invested in my life, this I believe”.

When you know that He loves you, you can find strength because perfect love has a unique ability to cast out fear. If you know that He loves you, you can find strength.

Do not let the devil to use your challenges to interpret the love of God, no! Satan is a master of the flesh realm, he can use everything happening to you and make you think, is this how love acts?

Find strength, there is a revelation of the love of God. The same energy it takes to continue is the same energy it takes to go back. You must make up your mind.
2). The Power of the Word, particularly the administration of comfort that comes with scripture (Romans 15:4)

Psalm 119:28
My soul melts from heaviness; strengthen me according to Your Word.
The Word of God is a comforter and a strengthener because you see, the dynamics is this; the power of God only follows what it says. If God has not said it, it is illegal for His power to come to the scene. So the Word of God is a compendium of what He has said (Genesis 21:1-2).

Most believers are not students of scripture and so when these seasons come, there is no legitimate way to draw strength but most believers don’t know how to sit down with the Word and draw strength from it.

Ezekiel 2:1-2
3). Engage in strategic Prayers (Psalm 34:4-7). One of the assignment of the spirit of heaviness, what we know in the medical field as depression is to bring you to a point of silence because if you can open your mouth and agree with God, His power can come to you.

  • I rebuke the spirit of heaviness over everyone here in the name of Jesus Christ.
    Psalm 61:1-4

Prayer is not just for give me, give me. There are times that prayer is what supplies the strength and the stamina to push through.

4). Maintain a lifestyle and an atmosphere of joy. In this Kingdom, joy is very powerful (Nehemiah 8:10). God is able to use your joy as a fetcher to bring strength to your life.

There is nothing I know that frustrates the devil like watching a believer laugh and rejoice when he brought his best at you; “you mean in spite of the fact that your son died” now you understand Job 1, you see why Job was a very powerful man, he knew what to do
No matter what you lose, if the devil does not succeed in taking away your joy, believe me, everything you lost only went on errand, it is coming back.

Philippians 4:4
You must obtain grace from God to wean yourself from this lifestyle of gloominess and anger (Habakkuk 3:17-19).

No matter what you lose in life, make up your mind to not lose joy. Joy is not just laughing like a clown, joy is an inner state of rest and merriment; a confidence that affects your emotions derived from the fact that God is still alive and still in charge. There are times it may not make sense but you must maintain your joy. Joy is a realm you enter to guarantee your harvest.

It was Papa Copeland I was told that asked God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo and said, even though we are the ones who taught you on faith, you seem to have gotten tremendous results and Bishop Oyedepo replied according to the story, I danced with joy, everyone of these people.

There are times when it does not make sense, you will need to go to the shop and begin to give God glory in an empty shop that has nothing there.
Never allow anything to take your joy, it is the commitment that I made with my life. Joy has a health value, finance value in your life; all wise, it profits you when you know how to be joyful.

“I choose to rejoice, I choose to live a life of joy in the name of Jesus”.
5). Every time you step into seasons where things don’t seem to be working in your life, you must obtain grace to engage the prophetic.

The prophetic is a weapon of power when it is administered within the boundary of scripture. I have the honour and the privilege to speak over people, over impossible situations, that sometimes even me, the man of God who was used to minister to them, I can almost say, my God, will this situation turnaround and then…

I am not telling you what I studied, I am telling you a reality. This is by the privilege of God’s mercy, I know what the prophetic can do. When a genuine Prophetic mantle from a man of God’s lip, a prophetic anointing, a spoken word backed up by the integrity of God’s word, when it lands over your situation, you just step back and watch it work wonders in your life.

The prophetic does not just reveal, the prophetic creates and you have come tonight to encounter that dimension of the prophetic. This meeting will not be over until that Word comes upon your life.

There’s a level of arrogance that is in the world today that will keep punishing many people and they will keep going through needless pain because of the arrogance of neglecting the prophetic. It is an error if you find yourself ignoring the prophetic. The prophetic does not follow the sequence of the natural course of things, it is a dimension outsourced as a system of advantage.

God Himself set in motion these offices in the Body of Christ, it is an advantage for the saints. I was so honoured and blessed when His Excellency, the ambassador came, he was just jumping and celebrating Jesus and in as much as it looks very funny, I said this man will never remain at the same level. He has found a key that many people do not have the maturity to find.

When the Ark was being restored, David was dancing and rejoicing and thanking God and his unwise wife came and said, no, no. This is not royalty. You are bringing shame to yourself and dishonour. The Bible says God heard the rubbish she was saying and she died barren.

If you have the faith to receive the prophetic, your life can literally change overnight. The prophetic has rules:

a). Faith in God and in the vessel.

b). Honour to God and the vessel.

I remember one time a gentle man who was relieved from his job and he came to me; usually I will just pray and tell me, trust God for another job and the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, prophesy to him that you are making decrees that he’s going back to that job and it was a very good job. When I said this, the guy said, Sir, you don’t know, this is a XYZ oil company.

I said what is my business? Who among them can create oil, are they not mining it?

The One who created the oil is now making a decree. Listen, I lie not, it was within three days and it was a very strange thing that one of the executive members who is a Christian had a dream and in that dream, a voice spoke to him and said, bring back this young boy. He got up, met with his fellow executives.

When they called him and he called me, I said next time, enjoy your testimony but next time, do not be unwise.

Not every man of God is a herbalist and not everybody is stupid. I will not come to a congregation of people here and globally like this and make a caricature of your pedigree and your intelligence except that this works.

The prophetic works but the challenge is that most people just say amen but they don’t believe, truly they don’t. I am about to pray for you and declare that this prophetic dimension, you must experience it this night.
