Dr Rex

God has deposited His best gifts within us so that we can carry out His will on earth!
Jesus is our tranquilizer. In Him we have quietness and stillness!

We have been rescued from this wicked world in line with God’s plan,will and purpose for our lives!

An aspect of Love…goodness which is a fruit of our human spirit gains mastery over evil. It will make you an overcomer in your life’s conflict with the devil.!

All of God’s promises in His word to us are “Yes”. In other words God will not say ” No” to you when you petition Him in prayer based on His promises to us in His word. On your part you have to come into agreement with God by affirming “Amen” which simply means…”so be it or let the word of God be fulfilled in my life Lord” . Glory to God!

Amen is an affirmation that God’s Word should come to pass in our lives. When we say Amen with this understanding we will experience more fulfillment of God’s word in our lives!

We stand in the state of God’s favor and goodness !

Let us soar in the realm of love where faith rules and Jesus is Lord!

When the Father- God forgives our sins, he also puts the memory that we committed those sins out of His mind!

As our High Priest, the Lord Jesus vindicates our cause before the father-God!

You are a Peculiar person and God has bestowed unusual blessings upon you!

Our fellowship with the heavenly father is sustained by Christ’s life for us as our heavenly intercessor!

When we grow in the love of God, we understand God’s divine mysteries fully and clearly!

God’s love within us grows as we understand His love for us!

Christ has entered into the heavenly sanctuary for us…yea… into the very presence of our heavenly father on our behalf as our High Priest!

Jesus Christ’s Single Offering for our sins avails for all times!

Your worth is measured with the life of Jesus Christ!

God’s tender love towards those who confess and forsake their sins is expressed in the meaning of the word mercy in Proverbs 28:13. The Hebrew word is racham, which literally means to fondle. In these expressions we observe that God lovingly reassures those who acknowledge to Him their wrongdoings and sins. He forgives them and assures them that nothing shall separate them from His great love towards them.

When a believer is out of fellowship with the father God through sin, although other believers might disapprove of him, he should remember that he has an advocate in heaven who pleads his cause before the Father God, Jesus the Righteous.

Giving will ALWAYS bring increase to our lives…ALWAYS!

God is Trustworthy !

Refuse to give in to the devil…resist him…defy him…oppose him…do not go along with him…and he will fly

When we make ourselves available, handy and accessible to God, He will in turn make Himself available, handy and accessible to us!

When you are humble, God will put you on a pedestal…and promotion will come to your life!

You have the power in Christ to restrain the devil and pin him down!

Judah was destined by God to be an ancestor of our Lord Jesus Christ and other prominent biblical characters like King David. He did not discern the great destiny God had for his future. He envied his brother Joseph who discerned his destiny through a dream that he will become a ruler. Like Judah and Joseph you too have a great destiny in Christ but you must refuse to get into competition with others.

Whatsoever you do shall Prosper

When we delight in God’s Word and mutter it to ourselves day and night, we wax strong, push forward and become very great in the good works of our hands. ( Psalms 1:1-3)
Our prosperity comes through meditation, Observation, and Application. ( Joshua 1:8)

Prosperity is God’s will for your life

Dr Rex

In today’s lesson, I am taking my text from the third Epistle of John Chapter 1:2 and it reads as follows:
Beloved, I pray that you may
Prosper in all things and be in health,
Just as your soul prospers
(3 John 1:2)

I would like you to notice the phrase in the apostle’s prayer:
“… I pray that you may prosper in all things…”

It is God’s will for his children to prosper in every area of their existence.
If you are not well-off in your own life, it is your responsibility.
God is not to be held responsible.

Prosperity simply means to move forward and progress until you become very great.

The second reflection I would like to pass on to you is that it is God’s will for you to be healthy!

Being healthy is God’s idea and not man’s idea.
To be healthy means to be free from every trace of sickness and disease.
You can live above sickness and disease by God’s power.

Notice again the phrase “… just as your soul prospers” in 3 John: 2.

Your financial, material, and physical prosperity and well being is proportionate to the prosperity of your soul.
Your soul is comprised of your mind, emotion, and will.

In review Apostle John’s prayer can be rephrased in this way: “…I pray that you may be wealthy in every area of life and stay healthy in your body even as you are healthy in your mind”

Joshua 1:8 reads “… this book of the law shall not depart from your mouth; you shall meditate in it day and night that you may observe to do according to all that it is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous and then you will have good success.

God gave Joshua the recipe for success. The key to Joshua’s prosperity was tied to God’s word. Joshua was told to speak the word of God to himself day and night; and be alert to apply its wisdom to his daily life. In this manner he will become prosperous and achieve good success in life.

Many people refuse to acknowledge God’s word as an exceptional part of man’s success story on earth. Take out God’s word and all you will have is bad success. Satan will get at you through his deceptive methods and wreck your life.

The success that God gives to you has His word as the foundation. That success is guaranteed and will always stand the test of every satanic onslaught against your life. Glory to God!

The book of psalms chapter 1 from verse 1-3 reads as follows:

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the paths of sinners nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in his law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither and whatever he does shall prosper.

Who is a blessed man?

A blessed man is anyone who will not:

i) Act on the advice of the ungodly.
ii) Backslide from his faith and live like sinners
iii) Scorn at godly things.

Additionally a blessed man is anyone who will:

i) Delight himself on the word of God
ii) Meditate on God’s word day and night.

This person will in due course be fruitful in all his accomplishments and will never be unproductive.
He will always move forward and make progress until he is distinguished in life. Glory to God forevermore!

The Influence of the Believer

Dr Rex

Exploring our Authority

We have authority we can explore in this world as God’s people. Do not gaffe or be nonchalant at this fact .
Make up your mind to be and have all that God has laid up in store for you as His child!

The Word of God is the Foundation

The foundation is the Word of God. We have to make our program around it. It’s of paramount importance. We should find God’s Word by meditating on it day and night until it becomes a part of our consciousness.
Then it will control us completely. Then we can begin to explore our authority in this world as God’s people.

Prevailing Prayers

One way we can explore our authority is by making prayers that avail much.

Standing on God’s Promises

God’s promises are staggering. He has guaranteed our protection in this life. He has promised to be with us in trouble. He has promised us deliverance from practically anything and everything the devil can throw on our way. He also has promised to give us favor with other people when we need it especially those who are in a position to help us. The Bible describes God’s promises to us as over and above greatness and they are very precious. We can stand on any of God’s promises with boldness in prayers, and expect God to make it good in our lives. As far as God is concerned all His promises are yes and Amen. Glory to God!

Looking Beyond the Global Recession

Dr Rex

Its become very crucial in our time for the Just to live by their faith. We must look beyond the global recession and what the news says and focus our attention on the Word of God. This is the time to nurture our faith in God by becoming intimate with His Word. In the midst of the turmoil, we can have peace. In the midst of recession our needs can be met. Stay on the Word of God. Speak the promises out to yourself…for a man’s belly shall be satisfied by the fruit of his lips… Glory to God!

Jesus Spoiled Principalities and Powers

Dr Rex

And having spoiled principalities and powers, he
Made a show of them openly, triumphing over
Them in it
(Col. 2:15)

Satan is a thief and Adam lost the dominion of the earth to him through disobedience.

Adam legally delivered the dominion of this earth to Satan in disobedience to God’s Word and by that act of disobedience, Satan became the god of the world.(Luke 4:6 , 2 Cor.4:3).

He legally snatched away the authority of this earth from Adam. The authority that he snatched away from Adam was legally “delivered to him”(Luke 4:6).

The devil has continued to keep men in bondage through fear and the power of death (Hebrews 2:14,15).

Jesus however went to the cross to die for man and redeem him from Satan’s bondage.

He met Satan in an open combat defeating him and all his evil principalities in hell.

He also took away from Satan the power of spiritual death.

In that single combat, Jesus plundered Satan’s arsenal, devoured and laid him waste.

Satan’s soundness, strength and effectiveness were completely depleted.

He and his cohorts were disarmed, arrested, and paraded as captives in Christ’s Victory procession before the beings of three worlds, heaven, earth and hell. Glory to God!

And at the cross He disarmed the evil principali-
ties and powers, and made a public display of
them, leading them as captives in His victory
procession(Col.2:15 The New Translation)

Jesus is LORD, obtaining a staggering Victory for us in His Name over Satan:

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him and
Given him a name which is above every name:
That at the name of Jesus every knee should
Bow, of things in earth, and things under the
Earth, And that every tongue should confess that
Jesus is LORD, to the Glory of God.
(Phil. 2:9-11)

Godliness is Profitable

Dr Rex

Godliness is profitable… always keep in mind this fact as long as you live.
If something is PROFITABLE, it pays off.
There is a big reward in serving God. Godliness will guarantee our protection, promotion, and prosperity in this life

But REFUSE profane and old wives FABLE and EXERCISE thyself rather unto GODLINESS. For bodily exercise profited little: But GODLINESS is PROFITABLE UNTO ALL THINGS having PROMISES OF THE LIFE THAT NOW IS, and of that which is to come
(1 Timothy 4:7, 8 King James Version)

How can we keep fit with Godliness?

One way we do is by STUDYING THE WORD OF GOD and putting it into PRACTICE in our daily lives.

For example the WORD OF GOD exhorts us to:

… PRAY without ceasing
(1Thessalonians 5:17).

When we pray without ceasing, our spirit man is kept fit with Godliness.

In another place, Paul exhorted the Galatians Christians

… Not to be WEARY in well doing …
(Galatians 6:9).

The Galatia Christians were like you and they had the temptation to lose heart and be discouraged in doing well as they encountered various problems in their Christian WALK.

There are times when it will seem to us that things are not working the way they should.
At such times we need to REFUSE every discouragement.

In ministry, you will be confronted with the OPPORTUNITY TO QUIT!

You have to make the right kind of dedication and consecration to do what God has called you to do in spite of your feeling.

There are times it will look like you are going over-board. Other times it will seem as though you are sinking and dying. Yet other times you might feel like a fool.

God will PROMOTE you:
… “In DUE SEASON…if you FAINT not

(Galatians 6:9).


The best word you will ever say to an immoral craving in your body is “NO”.

The greatest word you will ever say to the temptation that entices you to sin against God is “NO”.

The greatest word you will ever say to the devil when he comes to assault you or your loved one is “NO”.

When you say “NO”, mean it with all your heart.

Say it with the VOICE of Authority and the devil will FLEE from you!(James 4:7)
I am thrilled about the authority we have in Christ Jesus.

REFUSE to be robbed nor deceived.

Insist on living for God…for Godliness is PROFITABLE. Glory to God!


There is a price for spiritual power. It is not exclusive. You can afford it!

For I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
(Philippians 4:13 KING JAMES VERSION)

The price for failure is sky-scraping. You might not afford it!

Failure could cost you your very life.

Satan is a task master and he hates you with a flaming hatred.

He comes to: steal, kill and destroy. (John 10:10)

When you move toward Jesus and submit your life to Him, He will give you rest:

“Come unto me, all you who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest:
(Mathew 11: 28 KING JAMES VERSION)

As you resolve to bear the yoke and burden of Jesus, you will discover that his yoke and burden are easy and light:

For my yoke is EASY and my burden is LIGHT
(Mathew 11:30 KING JAMES Bible)

Have the guts to learn of Jesus.
Dare to pay the price for spiritual power and your life will take on a new feature to God glory!


This present life holds precious promises for you!
You can discover these promises afresh for yourself as you study the Word of God.

You can enjoy a little bit of heaven here on earth.

What is wrong with that after all?

We all deserve the blessings of God.

It holds no water to be POOR and HOLY:

Beloved, I wish ABOVE ALL THINGS that thou mayest PROSPER, and be in HEALTH, even as your soul prospereth
. (3 JOHN 2 King James Bible).

Why wait until you get to heaven in order to enjoy the blessings of God?
You can start here and now!

The blessings of God are extremely appealing that I can barely wait to taste them in this present life:

Oh taste and see that the LORD is good: Blessed is the man who trust in Him
(Psalm 34: 8 King James Bible)

I am excited about the good things from heaven we can enjoy in this life…are you?
Glory to God!

The ID of the New Man in Christ-Part Three

Dr Rex

In our last teaching, we learned that the “New Man” is the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN CHRIST.

The position of the “New Man” is a position of RIGHTEOUSNESS.

He can come close to the father God without the sense of condemnation, fear or inferiority because he is RIGHTEOUS in God’s sight.

Righteousness simply means RIGHT -STANDING with God.

It is a GIFT imparted to our spirit at the New-birth

The GIFT of righteousness causes us to REIGN as KINGS over Satan and all the circumstances of life. Glory to God!

Additionally we learned that the “New Man” has become the temple… dwelling place or home of the Holy-spirit.

Another way we can say it is that our spirit the “New Man” has become the house of the Holy-Spirit.

God-the Holy spirit LIVES “in us”… ‘In our spirit-the ‘New Man!

When we become conscious of Gods indwelling PRESENCE “WITHIN US,”… “IN OUR SPIRIT, “… Life will become full-size, electrifying and loaded.

We will always be … “More than conquerors.” in every life’s fight. Glory to God!


The “New Man”- Our spirit is a LOVE BEING:

…hope does not disappoint because the LOVE OF GOD has been poured out WITHIN OUR HEARTS through the Holy spirit who was given t us

Again in Galatians 5:22, 23 the “FRUIT” of the reborn Human Spirit-the “New Man” is

…LOVE, Joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance; against such there is no law (GALATIANS 5:22, 23 KING JAMES BIBLE)

Notice that the word “FRIUT” is in the singular form and not in the plural form.
The reason is because joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance operate as a” BLENDED WHOLE” and not “INDEPENDENT” of each other. They represent ‘ONE FRUIT’…the “FRUIT” of LOVE.
We have the love of God within our spirit- the “New Man”. Glory to God!


The “New Man” is conformed to the image of Christ.

For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become CONFORMED to the IMAGE OF HIS SON; that He might be the FIRST-BORN among MANY BRETHREN. (ROMANS 8:29 THE NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE).

The Greek word translated as “IMAGE” in the above scripture is the word”eikon”.

It means an exact replica, representation, or picture of an original.

Our spirit- the “New Man is an exact replica, representation or picture of Christ who is the ORIGINAL SON OF GOD. Glory to God!

I like how the Amplified Bible renders Romans 8:29:

For those who He foreknew (of whom He was aware and loved before hand) He also destined from the beginning (foreordaining them) to be MOLDED INTO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON (AND share inwardly his likeness), that He Might become the First born among many brethren.(ROMANS 8:29 AMPLIFIED BIBLE),

We share INWARDLY the likeness of Christ. We look like Christ. The devil cannot tell us from Christ… because like He is, so are we in this world:

By this love is perfected with us, that we may have CONFIDENCE in the day of judgement; BECAUSE AS HE IS, SO ALSO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD. (1 John 4:11117 THE NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE).

Is Christ Righteous?
We are Righteous!

Is Christ Holy?
We are Holy!

Is Christ the Son of God?
We are Sons of God!

Is Christ, an Heir of God?
We are Heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ. Glory to God!

The ID of the New Man in Christ-Part Two

Dr Rex

In our last issue, we began teaching on the ID of the “New Man”.

We learned that the “New Man” is a NEW CREATURE in Christ Jesus.
There is an outward man.

The outward man is the FLESH-the body.

The Body is the home, dwelling place or temple of our spirit-The “New Man”. Glory to God!

You are a spirit; you have a soul and you live in body.

The SOUL is the mind, intellect, emotion and will of the “New Man”-The REAL YOU!

The voice of the inward man… Our spirit is CONSCIENCE.

The voice of the outward man-Our Body is FEELING.

T he voice of the SOUL…the emotion and the will of the “New Man” is REASON.

God does not GUIDE us by our feelings; reasonings or emotions but He GUIDES us by our CONSCIENCE- the voice of our spirit. Glory to God!

Additionally we learned that TRUE WORSHIP is always … IN THE SPIRIT.

Our human spirit can WORSHIP GOD TRULY.

It is only with our spirit that we communicate and make contact with God.

The forces of life are resident within our Reborn human spirit –the “New Man”.

The forces of life are the nine fruit of the reborn human spirit-imparted to us at the New Birth.

These forces are developed within us by HEARING THE WORD OF GOD,

FAITH, Joy, Love, Peace, Patience, gentleness, goodness, meekness and self-control are all developed within us by HEARING the message… a word from Christ lips.

So then FAITH cometh by HEARING and HEARING by the word of God.
(Romans 10:17 THE KING JAMES BIBLE).

THESE things have I spoken unto you so that my JOY might REMAIN IN YOU and you’re your might be FULL (John 15:11 THE KING JAMES BIBLE).

The nine fruit of the re-born human spirit-the “New Man” operate as a blended whole not independent of one another. Glory to God!


Our reborn human spirit-the “New Man” has become the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD in Him (11 CORINTHIANS 5:2 NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE).

This “New Man” is created after God in RIGHTEOUSNESS and true holiness

…the New Man” which was created according to God in RIGHTEOUSNESS and true holiness (EPHESIAN 4:23 THE NEW KING JAMES BIBLE).


This is the POSITION of our reborn human spirit before the father God.

We can come close to Him without a sense of FEAR or INFERIORITY because He has made us RIGHTEOUS in his SIGHT.

Our spirit is ALIVE because of the gift of RIGHTEOUSNESS imparted to us at the New birth:

And if Christ is IN YOU, the body is dead because of sin, but the SPIRIT IS LIFE BECAUSE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (ROMANS 8:10 THE NEW KING JAMES BIBLE).

I love how the new American Standard Bible renders this verse of scripture:

And if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the SPIRIT IS ALIVE BECAUSE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS(ROMANS 8:10 NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE)


RIGHTEOUSNESS is a masterful thing. It will cause us to REIGN AS KINGS over Satan and all circumstances of life:

…MUCH MORE those who receive the abundance of grace and of the GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS will REIGN IN LIFE through the one, Jesus Christ.(ROMANS 5:17 THE NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE).


Our Reborn human spirit-the New Man” has become the temple … dwelling place or home of the Holy –spirit:
Do you not KNOW that you are a TEMPLE of GOD, and the spirit of God DWELLS in YOU…for the TEMPLE OF GOD is holy, and that is what YOU ARE!(CORINTHIANS 3:16, 17 THE NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE)

Your spirit-the inward man is the REAL YOU.

The spirit of God dwells IN YOU… in your spirit –the INWARD MAN or the REAL YOU. Glory to God!

YOU ARE FROM GOD, little chidren, and have overcome them, because GREATER IS HE who is IN YOU than he who is in the world.(1 JOHN 4:4 THE NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE).

The one in the world is Satan.

The Bible calls him the “god” of this world (11 Corinthians 4:3).

The ONE IN US is God-the Holy-Spirit.

We are the residence of God. We are His house and place of abode.

Our body is the TEMPLE of the Holy-Spirit. Glory to God!

Apostle John said the Holy-Spirit in US is GREATER than Satan who is the “god” of this world!

God is living in us through the person of the Holy-Spirit.

When we become conscious of His abiding presence within us, life will be full-size and electrifying because He is GREATER than our circumstances. Glory to God!

The ID of the New Man in Christ-Part One

Dr Rex


The “New Man”…your SPIRIT lives in your OUTWARD MAN-THE FLESH!

Your FLESH is your BODY…the home, dwelling place or temple of your SPIRIT-the “New Man”.

Your SPIRIT-THE INWARD MAN is the REAL YOU! Glory to God!

Your SPIRIT- THE REAL YOU has become a “NEW CREATURE” in Christ;

Therefore if any MAN IS IN CHRIST he is a NEW CREATION; Old things have passed away, behold, all things have

You are a SPIRIT; you have a SOUL and you live in a BODY:

And the every God of peace sanctify you wholly: and I pray God your whole SPIRIT and SOUL and BODY be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.(11 THESSALONIANS 5; 23 THE AUTHORIZED VERSION).

Your SOUL is the mind, emotion and will of the REAL YOU- the “New Man”. Glory to God!


The VOICE of the SOUL- the mind, emotion and will of the “New man”-THE REAL YOU IS REASON.

The VOICE of the INWARD MAN- THE REAL YOU is conscience.

God will not lead us by our feelings or reasoning but He will lead us by our CONSCIENCE- the VOICE of the INWARD MAN. Glory to God!



Man was created to fellowship with God in his SPIRIT.

You cannot be acquainted with or contact God physically. You cannot discern, contact or commune with God mentally. However your RE-BORN Human spirit can be on familiar terms with God.

Your RE-BORN Human spirit can CONTACT God. Your RE-BORN Human spirit can WORSHIP God.


And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be FILLED with the spirit, SPEAKING to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, SINGING and MAKING MELODY IN YOUR HEART to the Lord;

The word HEART and the word SPIRIT are used synonymously in the BIBLE.

You cannot sing and make MELODY to the Lord in your heart- the organ of flesh that pumps blood to your body… that would mean that you could SING and make MELODY to the Lord in your PHYSICAL BODY.

NO! You SING and make MELODY to the Lord in your Heart … Your RE-BORN Human spirit- the CENTRE of your being.

Your RE-BORN Human spirit has CAPACITY to WORSHIP God TRULY. Glory to God!


THE FORCES OF LIFE are resident in our RE- BORN Human spirit- The “New Man”.
These FORCES OF LIFE are the nine FRUIT of the RE-BORN Human spirit- THE INWARD MAN, listed in the New Testament:

But the FRUIT of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance, against such there is no law

THE FORCES OF LIFE… the nine FRUIT of the RE-BORN Human spirit are imparted to us at the New –Birth.
We are partakers of Gods attributes… partakers of the Divine Nature of God in Christ Jesus:

Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious PROMISES: that by these YE might be PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE A NATURE…(11 PETER 1:4 THE KING JAMES BIBLE).

The nine FRUIT of the RE-BORN Human spirit operate as a BLENDED WHOLE and not independent of each other.

Faith cannot work independent of love:

For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision avail anything, nor uncircumcision; but FAITH which WORKETH by LOVE

In addition you cannot INHERIT the promises of God by faith alone- You need patience

… be not slothful, but followers of those who through FAITH and PATIENCE INHERIT the promises,

Each of these FORCES OF LIFE…the nine FRUIT of the RE-BORN Human spirit, is developed within us by HEARING the word of God:

So then FAITH cometh by HEARING and HEARING by the word of God.

A literal exposé of Romans 10:17 read thus:

“Faith you see can only come from hearing the message, and the message is a word from Christ’s lips”.

Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Faith, Meekness, Temperance are all developed within us by HEARING the message… a word from Christ’s lips:

THESE things have I SPOKEN unto you that my JOY might REMAIN IN YOU and that your JOY might be FULL

Satan is Paralyzed!

Dr Rex

For as much then as the children are partakers
Of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took
Part of the same; that through death he might
Destroy him that had the power of death that is
The devil.
And deliver them who through fear of death were
All their lifetime subject to bondage.
(Hebrews 2:14, 15)

Thank God Jesus has delivered us from the bondage of fear of death!

I want you to observe the phrase in our text “…him that HAD the power of death, that is the devil…”(Hebrews 2:15).

Notice that Satan HAD the power of death.

The implication of this phrase is that he had that “power”sometime but does not seem to have it NOW !

Satan does not have the power of spiritual death any longer.

Physical death still remains an enemy to man but it will eventually be put underfoot:

So when this corruptible has put
on incorruption, and this mortal has
put on immortality, then shall be
brought to pass the saying that is
written”Death is swallowed up in
(1 Cor. 15:54)

People will continue to die physically until the saying is brought to pass…”Death is swallowed up in victory”.

However our Lord Jesus Christ has destroyed the authority of Satan who had power over spiritual death.

Rev. 1:17,18 shows us that He actually took from Satan the keys of hell and death:

And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as one
Dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying
Unto me “fear not, I am the first and last: I am
He that liveth and was dead; and behold, I am
Alive forever more and I HAVE THE KEYS OF
(Rev. 1:17,18).

Hell and Death are no longer under Satan’s jurisdiction.

The English word”destroy”in our text in Hebrews 12:14,15, is from the Greek word “Katargeo”which means : …to render null and void; to abolish or bring to naught, make of no effect or paralyze.

In His combat with Satan, Jesus left him paralyzed. Satan was rendered completely powerless and ineffective. In fact Satan was crippled, disabled and immobilized.

I will like us to read Hebrews 2:14,15 from the Amplified Bible version:

Since therefore[these His] children share in
Flesh and blood [in the physical nature of human
Beings], He [Himself] in a similar manner partook
Of the same [nature], that by [going through] death
MAKE OF NO EFFECT him who had the power
Of death – that is , the devil
And also that He might deliver and completely
Set free all those who through the haunting fear
Of death were held in bondage throughout the
Whole course of their lives
(Hebrews 2:14, 15)

Commitment to God’s Purpose

Dr Rex

You will never be on familiar terms with pleasure, tranquility and fulfillment until you find out God’s purpose for your life and make it your dedication.

You could Live and Die without realizing the plan of God for your life! You need to seek out God for yourself and He will give you an idea about his plans; he will not talk to you until you make up your mind to inquire about it; Immediately you make up your mind and start SEEKING HIM, it won’t be so long, God will come and MANIFEST himself to you. He will REVEAL his purpose to you. Glory to God

It is your responsibility to COMMIT yourself to God’s purpose once you find out what it is. As you COMMIT yourself to the purpose of God and EARNESTLY make it your life PURSUIT, you will begin to EXPERIENCE heaven’s blessings in its FULLNESS for yourself. Life will be full of serenity, satisfaction, pleasure and fulfillment Glory to God!

God will not achieve much on earth except we are sold-out to his PURPOSE. The purpose of God is ABORTED many times when there is no dedication to bring it to pass.

FAITH will not work without dedication.

Dedication is the foremost precondition in bringing the plan of God to completion in our lives.


Dedication to the plan of God is a great need in the church today. The reason is because we have not placed much emphasis on teaching commitment in our pulpits.

Faith comes by hearing and HEARING the word of God
(ROMANS 10:17).

We will eventually turn out to be PRODUCTS OF WHAT WE HEAR.

Repetition of God’s Word gives us the capacity to learn. This is SPIRITUAL LAW. Glory to God!


Success from God to you is first-class accomplishment and not horrific.
If it is from Heaven, it is without sorrow and pain.

The world has its conception of success and l am afraid many believers have been squeezed into that pattern of thinking.

Until you get God’s conception of success…you will never know what real living is about.

Real living is committing yourself to the plan of God until it comes true.

Show discretion and dedication for God’s purpose in your life. Glory to God!

In these days, saith the Lord of Hosts, I will reward you according to your works. I will reward you according to your faithfulness and commitment to my purose. If you continue in well doing and faint not in due season I will reward you with my promotion and shall extend my gracious hand, even in a greater way unto thee. And thou shalt be blessed and also be a blessing unto many.And thou shalt experience my pleasantness and know that all my paths are peace.Glory to God!
