Father, breathe your very life into us. Empower us by your Holy Spirit. Transfer us into the image of your Son. Make your kingdom prosper in our hands, that your Name alone may be Glorified.
For in Jesus Name we pray – Amen!!!
My meditation is actually “TOMORROW WILL BE ALRIGHT”.
And because we believe that tomorrow will be alright, we take authority today against principalities, against powers, against rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places; completely eliminated to the Glory of our God (Amen)
Can you say Amen to that – Amen!!!
In Luke Chapter 12 Verse 32, the Bible says; “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
And somebody say Amen – Amen!!!
I want to read from 1 Kings 18:41-46
41. And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain.
42. So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he cast himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees,
43. And said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea. And he went up, and looked, and said, There is nothing. And he said, Go again seven times.
44. And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man’s hand. And he said, Go up, say unto Ahab, Prepare thy chariot, and get thee down, that the rain stop thee not.
45. And it came to pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel.
46. And the hand of the LORD was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.
Our subject tonight is a Prophetic word; TOMORROW WILL BE ALRIGHT!
… Can you say Amen to that – Amen!!!
But to whom is this word sent to and from who?
The first thing to note is that it is not a Prophetic word from me to you. Why not? Because if you are born again Christian, if you are filled with the Holy Spirit, I should not be telling you that your tomorrow will be alright.
The reason is because of two scriptures that tell us our tomorrow can be alright.
The first one is from Deuteronomy 5:27-29
27. Go thou near, and hear all that the LORD our God shall say: and speak thou unto us all that the LORD our God shall speak unto thee; and we will hear it, and do it.
28. And the LORD heard the voice of your words, when ye spake unto me; and the LORD said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken unto thee: they have well said all that they have spoken.
29. O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!
… That’s how tomorrow is alright.
For every believer in our Lord Jesus, everyone that has received Jesus in their heart and that the Holy Spirit is possessing their heart; tomorrow is Alright!
But we don’t only see that in the Old Testament. Our Lord Jesus said exactly the same thing in John 8:28-29;
28. Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
29. And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
Tomorrow will be alright, if you follow me in the foot print of Jesus who said to us, I do nothing of myself. My Father teaches me, I speak His words and as a result of that, my Father is with me and He has not let me alone. And the reason I always do the things that please Him.
So you and I know how to make tomorrow alright for ourselves if you will follow the Lord. If you will obey the Lord. If you will do as He says. Then, tomorrow WILL BE ALRIGHT!
… Because the greatest guarantee of tomorrow is the Divine Presence.
Jesus said; My Father is with me. And you see; to guarantee that the Father is always with me, I have to do what pleases Him.
… So this is the guarantee of tomorrow!
So no believer in our Lord Jesus Christ should sit around waiting for another brother or sister to tell him or her that tomorrow will be alright. No! Jesus said; it is the way to make sure your tomorrow is alright. Do nothing by yourself; only do as the Father has taught you. Always do what pleases the Father anywhere and everywhere.
And that’s why the scriptures tell is in
Romans 8:14 – “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”
It is the Divine Presence that guarantees tomorrow. It is the Presence of God that says our tomorrow is alright.
Can you say Amen to that – Amen!!!
So, if this is not a Prophetic Word from me to you; what is this then?
This is a Prophetic Word from the Body of Christ for you and I. The body of Christ in Nigeria to the Nigerian society. It is also the Prophetic Word by every Christian to his or her world. You and I are rising to declare to our world, to say to the world of believers: Tomorrow Will Be Alright – Amen!!!
But on what basis should we declare this Word to the world of Nigerians; to Nigeria that tomorrow will be alright?
The answer is in John 17:22 – “And the Glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one.”
The Lord revealed to Moses in Exodus 33 that the Glory of God is the Presence of the Lord. Moses said to Him, Lord show me your Glory and God said I will pass by you, I will hide you in the cliff of the rock and then my Glory will pass and you will see it from the back.
And that scripture therefore, tells us that “I cannot see the Glory of God without the Presence of God.”
… And so to bring down the Glory: That is the challenge of the Church! To say to Nigerians, “We will bring down the Glory, and our tomorrow will be alright!”
… Can you say Amen to that – Amen!!!
So when we declare to Nigerians that there is Glory Ahead, that tomorrow will be alright; we are saying to them “Don’t worry about tomorrow because we are going to carry the Glory of God into tomorrow.”
Say Amen to that – Amen!!!
At individual levels, you and I are declaring to our families, we are declaring to our Churches, we are declaring to our Communities, to our colleagues at work; Tomorrow Will Be Alright!
Because I am going to bring down and manifest the Glory of my God anywhere and everywhere. That means am going to bring down the Presence of God in my world and we together are going to bring down the Presence of God in Nigeria. And the Presence of God will guarantee; as always that Our Tomorrow Will Be Alright!
But then, is this an empty pledge? Is this an empty promise?
We learnt something from the Prophet Elijah, he said to Ahab: I hear the sound of abundance of rain. But where was he hearing it? It wasn’t visible so that I hear with my spiritual ears the sound of abundance of rain.
And that is why the scriptures says that God has blessed us with every blessing. But He has positioned them in Heavenly places in Ephesians 1:3.
When we pledge to our world “Tomorrow will be alright”! We, like Elijah must do what he did.
Elijah said rain is coming; rain is coming! But you know he didn’t turn around and go to sleep. He didn’t turn over and pursue all manners of things. He knew that having made that commitment, he had to bring down that rain.
.. And that’s why the Bible said; he began to pray.
But before we get to the prayer, let us look at how you and I can position ourselves. Because you see, when it comes to God, it’s a matter of position.
Have you positioned yourself? Because God is moving in a certain direction. And you see He doesn’t chase us. We have to turn to position ourselves in the direction of the Divine Flow.
Leviticus 9:6-7; this is what you should do, this is what I should do, so that the Glory of God will appear:
6. And Moses said This is the thing which the LORD commanded that ye should do: and the Glory of the LORD shall appear unto you.
7. And Moses said unto Aaron, Go unto the altar, and offer thy sin offering, and thy burnt offering, and make an atonement for thyself, and for the people: and offer the offering of the people, and make an atonement for them; as the LORD commanded.
Moses commanded three (3) things that the people need to do if they wanted to experience the Glory of God.
1. Point Number One: Bring your “sin offering”. What do we mean by that? It is called in New Testament terms “Genuine Repentance.”
You know, repentance has suddenly become a word that many people don’t understand.
Let me simply explain what repentance is. Repentance has three (3) parts or four (4) parts if you like.
– The first part is; Lord, I am sorry for my sins.
– The second part is; Please wash me in the Blood of Jesus so that my sins can be washed away.
– But then, there is that third part that signals and denotes Genuine Repentance; That is the part that says “by your Grace, by the Power of your Holy Spirit, I will not sin again.”
… Without that third part: “I will not do it again”; that repentance is not Genuine.
So when Moses said bring a sin offering. He said approach God with Genuine Repentance so that He will look upon souls that have made a pledge to live Godly lives.
2. The second thing Moses recommended, he says; Bring your “Burnt Offering”.
A Burnt Offering is a consecration offering and that is why the scriptures tells us in Romans 12:1 that: I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Consecration Offering: these are people who have decided that they will make their lives a sacrifice unto God. They will dedicate their lives to please God, to love God, to serve Him in sincerity and in Truth. Like Jesus said they that must worship the Father must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.
So burnt offering is a consecration offering. People who have by themselves decided to serve the Lord and they would not look back.
Can you say Amen to that – Amen!!!
3. Now, the third thing that Moses recommended that if we do it, the Presence of the Lord will come down;
The third thing is the “Peace Offering”. And that Peace offering is a worship offering.
And what is a Worship Offering?
These are people who have come to accept that; every aspect of life must be worship that is acceptable unto God. Whether they are at home; whether they are at work, whether they are doing business; everything they do must be worship that is acceptable to God.
And as a result of that, they live Godly lives at home, Godly lives at work, Godly lives in business and politics and governance. Godly lives in Church.
Because the Bible says in 1 Timothy 4:8 – “For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.”
Moses said: if we would genuinely repent, if we will dedicate and consecrate our lives to God, if we will worship God with everything that we have; the Presence of God will come down and take over our lives.
Can you say Amen to that – Amen!!!
That is the message we must take to our world. That is the message we must take to ourselves; that God will come down.
But we must repent, we must consecrate our lives and we must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.
And then PRAYER!
When it comes to Prayer, we rise to say to Him: Lord we trust you, we have Faith in you that you are a Good God; that you are a Faithful God, that you are a God who keeps Promises, your Word is Yea and Amen!
… And so, we stand on that Word and we begin to intercede for our land.
But now, before we shift to that Prayer, let me say that if you are not saved, you don’t have to wait to join in this prayer, you can be saved now. And let me tell you why Salvation is important, particularly when the prayer involves warfare, fighting the forces that hinder us.
The Bible calls Salvation, HELMET. If you watch Soldiers who are into battle; they have helmet: They have something covering their head. The Bible says Salvation is Helmet! So we don’t want to go into warfare without your “helmet covering your head.”
And so, if you are not saved or if you are thinking of being saved, I urge you to be saved now and it is very simple.
You can say Lord Jesus come into my heart, be my Lord and be my Saviour. I repent of all my sins and by your Grace I will not go back to it again. I confess you now as my Lord and Saviour. I believe you died for my sins, I believe you rose again that I may live a new life. Thank you for saving me in Jesus Name I pray. And somebody said: Amen!!!
Perhaps you have been saved but you have backslide. Your Salvation is just in ruins; there is no life to it. Oh this is the time to restore it and to pray and say to Him: Oh Lord my God, I confess all my backsliding, please forgive me all my backsliding. And by your Grace, I will not go back to them again. I will walk in newness of life from henceforth by the Power of your Holy Spirit so that my life will be acceptable unto you. In Jesus name I pray – Amen!
And somebody said: Amen!!!
Now that everyone present supposedly has had the opportunity to put on THE HELMET; their own Helmet of Salvation. It is time for us to pray.
The Bible reveals that there are Five (5) enemies that we will deal with when we promise the world; “Tomorrow Will Be Alright.”
… We have to sit back and deal with the enemies.
In Ephesians 6:12, the Bible says there are: Principalities, Powers, Rulers of the darkness of this world and then spiritual Host of wickedness in heavenly places and then the fifth one is the Prince of this world.
Where do we find that? We find that in the second temptation of Christ according to Matthew or the third temptation according to Luke. The devil said to Him (to Jesus); see the kingdoms of this world, see the glories of it, see the wealth and the riches and the honours of it are all mine and I will give it to whosoever I will. If you will bow down and worship me, then all will be yours.
… Oh my brother, my sister, that’s a clever devil.
Because he knows that you and I want success, he knows that you and I wants to be comfortable, to be rich, to be wealthy. And that is why he has gone there to stand. That if you want wealth then you must compromise. If you want wealth then you must come join us in our way.
And God is calling on you and I to say: “I will prosper and I won’t join you.”
Can you say Amen to that – Amen!!!
“I will succeed and I won’t join you”. If your way is the only way to prosperity and success then, I will have none of it. I will rather remain poor.
God is calling you and I To dare; To dare the prince of this world, so that the Glory can come down.
And so, I want you to join me. Because of our time, I want you to join me in this Prayer. Wherever you are, you can stand with me. Please stand with me because I want us to pray.
We have to be in agreement; I have to believe that we are in agreement. So I want you to join me in this Prayer because this is a Prophetic Word to Nigeria. We are saying to Nigerians: Tomorrow will be Alright!
And now, we have to pray and this is a prayer I will encourage you to take away. So that when you get home you declare: Yes! Tomorrow will be Alright; because I am praying; I am confident that: Tomorrow will be Alright because I am Praying.
I want you to say with me: Oh Lord our God, we come to you through the Blood of Jesus to ask that the Glory of your Presence, given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ may envelope us now.
Standing in that Glory and on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we take captive and we dislodge every principalities, every powers, every ruler of the darkness of this world, every spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places standing over our nation, Nigeria.
Lord, we come against the prince of this world and all his strategies over our nation, Nigeria.
We bind and dislodge them in the Name of Jesus. We dislodge them in the same way that Michael dislodge the prince of Persia and having dislodge them now; Lord, let all the Angelic messengers to superintend over the birth of a new Nigeria. Let them come forth now in the Name of Jesus.
And Lord we declare, that the kingdom of Nigeria; because of the Glory that is coming down: the kingdom of Nigeria has become the Kingdom of the Almighty God. In Jesus Name.
And the people say: Amen!!!
… I have two more prayers and then am done.
Let us pray for Aso Rock, the seat of power.
Say with me:
Oh Lord our God, Aso Rock is our seat of power in Nigeria, we therefore take captive every principalities, every powers, every ruler of the darkness of this world, every spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places.
Lord, we bind and dislodge the prince of this world and all these devils sitting and blocking the heavenly messengers from bringing down a Genuine Revolution in righteousness in our nation, Nigeria. We dislodge them now in the Name of Jesus – Amen!!!
In the same way that Michael dislodge the Prince of Persia, Lord let the messengers from Heaven come through now to bring your Glory and let your Glory cover Aso Rock – our Seat of Power; to bring about righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. So that the kingdom of Nigeria will become the kingdom of our God in Jesus Name we pray – Amen!!!
PRAYER FOR THE CHURCH:
Oh Lord our God, we ask that your Church in Nigeria be transformed to become your battle axe for a revolution in righteousness in Nigeria.
Therefore, Lord we dislodge every principalities, every powers, every ruler of the darkness of this world, every spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places.
Lord, we dislodge the prince of this world that uses Mormon to guide your Church, we dislodge them all over the Church of God in our Nation, Nigeria in the Mighty Name of Jesus.
Just the same way that Michael dislodge the prince of Persia, Lord let the Helpers from Heaven and the help they are bringing, let them come through now to your Church in the precious Name of Jesus we pray.
… Finally, I like us to pray for each and every one. Pray for your life.
So come with me as we pray: Oh Lord my God, I declare from my heart that from this day forward I am determined that my life must Glorify you on this earth every day.
Therefore, every principalities, every powers, every ruler of the darkness of this world, every spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places, I dislodge you now over my life, over my life spiritually, physically, materially.
Lord, I particularly dislodge the prince of this world over my business ventures so that your true riches will come through to me to the Glory of your Name in Jesus Name I pray – Amen!!!
Take a moment now and take all that in. Take a moment, just a moment, take a moment and say Lord answer me speedily. Answer us speedily and let your Glory come down and guarantee our tomorrow. Thank you oh Lord.
Finally, join me to declare: Lord, we declare as a result of this prayers and because of your Holy Spirit that the Kingdom of Nigeria has become the kingdom of our God in Jesus mighty Name we pray – Amen!!!
Father, breathe on all your children here present, let your Hand rest upon us that we may go out and guarantee in prayer and dedication and supplications, Guarantee tomorrow for our nation. That the Church will become again the beacon of light and become the battle axe for revolution in righteousness.
We worship your majesty. We give you all the Praises and Honour and Glory for in Jesus Name we pray – Amen!
And all God’s people say – Amen!!!
