TOPIC: RECOGNIZING OUR AUTHORITY IN HIS NAME

Key Verse: “And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” – Ephesians 2:6

RHAPSODY OF REALITIES 17TH JANUARY 2021 SUNDAY TODAY

There’s so much that we can do when we take advantage of our authority and dominion in Christ. Too many Christians have been too quiet about many things, living as though they’re victims in life; no! Take charge; you’re in office. You’re seated with Christ in the place of power, in the position of authority; you have His dominion; it’s yours by right; so, use it! Make things right in your life, in your home, in your ministry, job, business, city, nation, etc., using the Name of Jesus.

That Name is greater than every government, or institution, name or title that could be conferred, both in this world and in the world to come. Jesus Christ is LORD over all, and the God of all flesh. With this knowledge, you can, and should, put a stop to the uprisings, wars, epidemics, wickedness, perils, and havocs the devil concocts and attempts to wreak around the world.

Putting a stop to these things is simple: Use the authority and power of His Name in prayer! The Message translation gives an excellent rendering of Ephesians 1:20-22. It says, “…God raised him from death and set him on a throne in deep heaven, in charge of running the universe, everything from galaxies to governments, no name and no power exempt from his rule. And not just for the time being, but forever. He is in charge of it all, has the final word on everything….”

This is extraordinary. However, He’s not in charge and ruling if you do nothing. The way He runs the earth and sets things in order is through us, the Church. We’re His seed, prolonging His days; He rules through us. When you speak, it’s Him speaking. When you take action against the forces of darkness and wickedness in your nation, that’s Him taking an action.

Satan has no chance if you’d recognise and take advantage of your position and ability in Christ—the glory and power you wield in His Name! Even now, use that authority! Declare in the Name of Jesus, the specific changes you want in any area of your life and you’ll have a testimony. Blessed be God!

CONFESSION: I’m seated with Christ in heavenly places, far above all the hardships, troubles, perils and corrupting influences in the world. I dominate and triumph over circumstances today. Christ reigns and rules through me; His dominion and righteousness are expressed through me. Blessed be His Name forever.

Rhapsody Of Realities Guide 4th March 2021 – Keep “Pushing” In Prayer

You are reading Today’s Rhapsody Of Realities for Thursday 4th March 2021; written by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome. May you be blessed as you read on.

TOPIC: KEEP “PUSHING” IN PRAYER

Key Verse: “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” – James 5:16

TODAY OUTLINE: RHAPSODY OF REALITIES GUIDE 4TH MARCH 2021

When the Bible says there was no rain in the land of Israel according to the word of Elijah, it wasn’t that Elijah suddenly woke up and said, “There’ll be no rain in Israel for the next three and half years.” No, the Bible says he prayed earnestly. 1 Kings 18:42 shows how he prayed; it says Elijah “bowed deeply in prayer, his face between his knees” (MSG).

The Amplified Classic version of our theme verse aptly describes this kind of prayer: “…The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].” It says the prayer is earnest, and there’s a persistence about it. In other words, it’s a sustained kind of prayer that’s marked by a deep feeling of conviction.

This isn’t the kind of prayer you pray at the dining table or when you’re hurrying off to work. There’re certain times and situations where you don’t just speak the word and go away; you persist in prayer. You keep pushing. You may be saying the same thing, but you’re pushing. Jesus did that too in the Garden of Gethsemane. He said the same things in prayer, and He prayed that way for an hour.

It wasn’t a two-minute prayer. He persisted, because he understood the stakes of the moment. We’re in a similar moment today. The stakes are high. You’ve got to take your personal prayer life more seriously. Always stir yourself and respond to the call and urgency of prayer from your spirit, declaring the Word and crushing the forces of darkness, in the spirit.

It may look like nothing is changing, but you keep pushing. You might ask, “But when do I stop?” You stop when you “know that you know” in your spirit that it’s done! Glory to God! You’ll surely get the note of victory.

PRAYER: Blessed Father, thank you for the privilege and opportunity of prayer by which I exercise my authority in Christ, to activate and walk in the consciousness of the divine presence, and enforce your will in the earth. I’m an effective intercessor through the Word of faith and earnest, heartfelt, continued prayer. I declare that the nations and leaders of the world are under the divine influence of your mighty power, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
