You are in for double blessings
John 14:13-14 “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do It.”
Every genuine Christian running the heavenly race with all his or her heart is going to have double blessing, because God is interested in their overall wellbeing and ready to give all things, both here on earth and in heaven thereafter. God looks into the heart of every believer, knows the level of commitment of everyone and blesses accordingly. Elisha faithfully served God through acting as the servant to Prophet Elijah, and prior to the latter’s rapture, God led him to direct the servant to request what should be done for him.
He made the request thus in 2nd Kings 2:9-13, “And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me. 10 And he 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. … 13 He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and went back, and stood by the bank of Jordan”. God has used Prophet Elijah to do exploits here on earth. And in the course, Elijah enjoyed God’s blessings and protections here on earth and God is taking him to heaven for another round of blessings. For Elijah, it is double blessing. His servant, Elisha, having followed closely, wanted double exploits and blessings from God. This is God’s plan for every Christian, especially His chosen people who serve Him with all their hearts. That is why the Bible counsels in Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”. Whatever we ask as children of God on this planet earth is by Divine grace given to us, and then at the end of this life on earth, there is eternal life in Heaven. Good things are waiting for the children of God, both here on earth and in Heaven.
God blessed the Israelites in Egypt by giving them the most fertile landmass in Egypt to occupy and eventually took them to the Promised Land, a place flowing with milk and honey. They even exploited the Egyptians while leaving. The Bible says in Exodus 12:35-36, “And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: 36 And the Lord gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians”. Through God’s favour and according to instructions from Moses, the Israelites collected gold and silver from the Egyptians. They exploited the Egyptians and still moved into the land flowing with milk and honey.
Christians on earth are empowered to have dominion, possess the earth in all ramifications, subdue it by making good use of all the resources available here to their own benefits and make Heaven at last. God put the earth under man’s control and still made provision for him in Heaven. The Bible puts it this way in Psalm 115:16, “The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s: but the earth hath he given to the children of men”. God’s interest is in the people that serve Him, the born again Christians, the chosen. He has given us the earth and the riches therein; yet our Lord Jesus Christ has gone back to Heaven to prepare a place for us. Christ is coming back to rapture the saints. This is after He has given us the riches of the gentiles here on earth. Every Christian is in Christ for double blessings here on earth and in Heaven.
The year 2020 is drawing to a close, and the closing part has been awash with series of spiritual programmes that have exposed you in the presence of God all these days. You have attended crusades, participated in publicity by inviting people to come to God’s presence. In some other occasions, you have preached the gospel to the perishing souls, with a view to recovering the lost souls for Christ. God is recording your efforts in this heavenly race and will surely bless you, both here on earth and in Heaven at the end of life here on earth. That is indeed double blessings. Ask for whatever your heart desires, and God will grant it to you plus eternal life in Heaven.
However, if you are not yet born again, you need repentance, so that your service to God will gain recognition. The self-righteousness of any man is likened to a filthy rag in God’s presence, hence does not attract any reward. If you still indulge in any sinful activities, such as telling lies, fighting, committing of either fornication or adultery and stealing of any kind, you need repentance. Do you still take alcohol, smoke either cigarette or Indian hemp? You need repentance because if you die in that condition, you are going to hell fire. It is not God’s Will that anyone should perish, but that all should come to the knowledge of God and repent and be saved. Today, take a decision to amend your ways and start the race that will take you to heaven.
Delivered From Aborigene Cult of Ancient Ogboni Confraternity
As all this was going on, I did not know what I was doing, because I was under the influence of the cult members. Each time I had to sign, they gave me a black pen, and one woman always gave me the black pen. After returning home, things were still hard. I went to Eket where I was managing a shop opened for my mother. Even though I had a shop, I was seeing hell. Everyday, cobwebs would fill my shop. My spirit was repulsive to that of the secret cult.
My spirit was against the spirit of the agreements I unknowingly signed under duress. This is because I was not ready to shed innocent blood. Naturally, I would not shed the blood of a guilty man, not to talk of that of an innocent man. So, I started praying, and then the attacks started. I ran away from my shop and came back home. On getting back to my father, he was angry with me on the ground that I disgraced him. I went back to my house. I was indulging in astral travels to the moon and other spirit kingdoms. I never knew my father’s rank in the cult was high.
There was one man in my town that died in 1991. He appeared to me in a dream and gave me a book titled philosophy and philosophising. This book was in my house for nine years. When I told my father, he told me to keep on reading the book; that when the time comes, I would own an airline in this country.
I was troubled in my heart. Then in 2011, they summoned all the high-ranking politicians in the Southeast and voted the present governor of Imo State and the other ones into various elective positions. It was then I knew that the grave in my father’s bedroom is a different world of its own.
It was there they saw my papers relating to my membership of the cult, but there was no blood in my documents. They were all angry with me. They struck me that I became mad. My madness was extremely violent. My mother and sister went into prayers for my deliverance and recovery. In the course of searching for my healing, I was taken to many places, both hospitals and alternative medicine centres.
In all these efforts, the madness continued. There is one of my sisters that loved me so much. The cult people wanted me to use her to tie her, use her to seal the blood of the people that will die through the accident that I would cause. They said that if I did that which entailed killing her, I would live long to enjoy my wealth. I told them I would not kill my sister, and that I would not kill anybody. That my sister, who was a teacher, came with her hard-earned money, hired a bus with the plan to take me to the church at Ikotun in Lagos. On our way to that church, the driver who was conveying us told my sister there is a place called The Lord’s Chosen, that if we go to the church, we would never come back the same.
My mother immediately told the driver to take us to The Lord’s Chosen. When we got to The Lord’s Chosen, there was a crusade, the 2012 edition of the crusade titled “…And the Enemies Submitted”.
My madness got worse, as we got to the premises of The Lord’s Chosen. I used my bare hand to break the fence demarcating The Lord’s Chosen from another property.
However, prayers were going on. On the last day of the programme, when the General Overseer mounted the pulpit, he mentioned my case and my head became settled and cool for better.
On that day, when I testified on the pulpit, I made a promise that I would give the church two plots of land, after I got my healing.
Then in the dream after my healing, I saw a mad woman following me. I entered one house, and the mad woman came and made love to me. Then in the dream, I saw the General Overseer of The Lord’s Chosen, who opened the door into the house I was with the mad woman and told her that enough is enough. When the mad woman wanted to contend with him, he told her again, enough is enough in Jesus name. The two bodyguards following the G.O arrested the mad woman and took her away. It was then I had my perfect healing.
God has also helped and favoured me in various ways. After the healing, God started blessings me and I started getting favours. However, my father again afflicted me with stroke. I had stroke as a young boy, but the God of Chosen has also healed me.
Presently, I am happily married with a daughter. I have a house and a car. I have a Pathfinder jeep. The cult people have been put to shame by God of Chosen. I did not kill or steal to have what God has blessed me with.
I have given the land to the church and I contributed to its building. I strongly believe in The Lord’s Chosen and pray that God will continue to guide and bless all of us in Jesus name.
To God be the glory!
