Good Things Do Happen — Prophet Tony Mathias

A Church member who was a businessman dreaded his frequent business trips away from his loving family because he viewed ‘pornography’ secretly in his hotel room. He tried his best to break this habit but he couldn’t stop. This led to guilt and condemnation. He finally broke this dreadful habit when he got a revelation that he is as righteous as Jesus by God’s grace which he received at salvation.

Good Things Happen
To Those Who Believe the Good News!

Romans 5:17 –“…those who receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness will reign in life by Jesus Christ.” – This is the ‘Gospel of Grace’ which is God’s power to bring salvation, deliverance, preservation, healing, health to all who believe.” Romans 1:16.

The First Secret: ‘Secret to Freedom from Bondage’
Romans 6:14; 1 Corinthians 15:34

When you know you are Righteous and have abundance of Grace.

“Sin will not have dominion…you are not under the law but under grace.” This happens when you: “Awake to righteousness.” [Then you sin not].

The Second Secret: ‘Secret to the Supernatural’
‘Hear the good news- all your sins are forgiven because of the Cross.’

Apostle Paul preached forgiveness people got healed as they listened. The man lame from birth leaped & walked the first time in his life! A person deaf in one ear got healed while hearing this message! Good things happen to those who fully depend on the grace of God. The more we hear good news the more miracles & breakthroughs we see. When you believe you’re forgiven and made righteous: You will be Healed, Prospered and Blessed!

Good Things Happen
To Those Who Believe God Loves Them!

Psalms 103: 1-5 – “…Bless the Lord O my soul and forget not all his benefits: Who forgives all…who heals all your diseases” – Forgiveness comes before healing. Once you know you are forgiven of all your sins, healing follows!

Many suffer guilt and condemnation which destroys life and perpetuates the cycle of sin resulting in sickness – The good news? – His grace, righteousness and blood has set you absolutely free from sin.

The power to overcome sin is found in the gift of ‘no condemnation.’ And you are given this gift!

Jesus says to the woman caught in adultery. “Neither do I condemn you…go sin no more.”

The Third Secret: “Secret to be filled with the fullness of God”
When you know God loves you.

Paul prayed for the Church of Ephesus the most spiritual Church of his time. He prayed that they would understand ‘the width, length, breadth, depth and height of the love of Christ,’ well portrayed by the Cross of Jesus Christ. He prayed that they would be filled with the fullness of God.

When you know God loves you, you will be filled with the fullness of God!

The Fourth Secret: “Secret of Abundance”
When you know God loves you – think big and ask big.

He went on to say: “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding…” Ephesians 3:20. God becomes big in your life when you know his love.

Think and ask big. God still exceeds your demands because He loves you.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world….” He loved you so much that he did not withhold his only Son whom he loved for you.

That is why “good things happen even to bad people.” Jesus received all our ‘bad’ and we took all his ‘good.’ This is the gospel of Jesus Christ based on grace.

God has accepted you in the Beloved. He is well pleased with you because you are in Christ. You are God’s beloved Child and he says to you: ‘You are my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.”

Once you know you’re God’s beloved despite your sinning and failing

– Satan’s attacks against you will fail.
– Sin will not dominate you
– Temptation will not succeed
– Sickness will fade away
– Your giants will come tumbling down
– There will be no room for sin & sickness, no room for gloom
– You will prosper in every way
– You are highly blessed and highly favored!

Remember:
Good things happen to those who believe the Good News!
Good things happen to those who believe God loves them!

The Four secrets revealed to you are:

1. ‘Secret to Freedom from Bondage’
When you know you are Righteous and have an abundance of Grace.

2. ‘Secret to the Supernatural’
When you hear and believe the good news that all your sins are forgiven because of the Cross of Jesus Christ.’

3. “Secret to be filled with the fullness of God
When you know God loves you.

4. “Secret of Abundance” When you know God loves you
You are God’s favorite!

God loves you!
Begin to say this week many times:
God loves me and witness the miraculous!

Lord Loves a Generous Giver

2 Corinthians 9:7
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Lord’s Generosity
2 Corinthians 9:10

Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.

James 1:5
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

Luke 11:13
If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!

Isaiah 40:29
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

Ephesians 3:20 -21
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

How should we be Generous?

Luke 6:30
Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back.

2 Corinthians 8:12
For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what one does not have.

Matthew 5:41-42
And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away.

Giving to those in need

Leviticus 25:35–37
“If your brother becomes poor and cannot maintain himself with you, you shall support him as though he were a stranger, and he shall live with you.

Take no interest from him or profit, but fear your God, that your brother may live beside you. You shall not lend him your money at interest, nor give him your food for profit.

I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt to give you the land of Canaan, and to be your God.”

 

  • God commanded the Israelites to be generous and merciful to each other
  • A brother’s need was not to be capitalized on for personal gain.
  • If money was loaned to a fellow Israelite, interest was not to be charged
  • Because the Israelites were delivered from Egypt & received God’s generosity, they were to show impartial generosity to each other

Giving Sufficiently & Maintaining Generous Ears

Deuteronomy 15:7–8
If among you, one of your brothers should become poor, in any of your towns within your land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother, but you shall open your hand to him and lend him sufficient for his need, whatever it may be.

Proverbs 21:13
“Whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor will himself call out and not be answered.”

  • Do not shut your ears/hands or harden your hearts to the cry of the poor
  • Lend him sufficiently for his need
  • Lord Jesus said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’

The Generous will Prosper

Proverbs 11:25
A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.

Luke 6:38
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

Psalm 112:5
Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely, who conduct their affairs with justice.

Proverbs 22:9
“Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor.”

Proverbs 19:17
“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.”

Matthew 10:42 God keeps track of our giving

“And whoever gives one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.”

God’s Promise to the Generous

Psalms 41:1-3
“Blessed is the one who considers the poor! In the day of trouble the Lord delivers him; the Lord protects him and keeps him alive; he is called blessed in the land; you do not give him up to the will of his enemies.

The Lord sustains him on his sickbed; in his illness you restore him to full health.”

God responds to the kindness and generosity of his people with protection, health, and abundance.


Biblical examples of Generous People

  • Generous people often give more than they are asked to give

In Exodus 36:1-7 we see God’s people bringing more than enough to meet the need — to the point that Moses must tell them to stop!

  • Generous people give in response to a great cause

In 2 Corinthians 8-9, we see the Corinthian church giving faithfully to help a community of people whom they have never met!

  • Generous people give out of their substance & poverty, whether large/small -Jesus’ enthusiasm about generosity

In Luke 21:1-4 Jesus compares the widow’s mite to the rich man’s gifts — demonstrating that the gifts of all are needed and used in God’s economy

  • True generosity doesn’t come from our excess; it comes from sacrificial hearts
  • The beauty of this passage is in Jesus’ enthusiasm to point out this woman’s magnanimity out to the disciples
  • To think that God gets this excited when we’re open-handed is pretty inspiring
  • Generous people give more than just their money

In Luke 10:25-37 Jesus tells the classic story of the Good Samaritan — one who gave time, resources, and skill to meet the need of a man who had been left for dead at the side of the road

The Samaritan makes himself vulnerable and available — the very definition of hospitality.

  • Generous people give even when it doesn’t make sense

In Genesis 45 Joseph responding graciously and generously to his family, even when logic would tell him not to

  • Generous people give to help others, even when they differ from one another

We see it in Luke 7:1-10 as a Gentile builds a Jewish synagogue! Who could have predicted such a donor for such a cause?

  • Generous people give to see the impossible become possible

A little boy offered Jesus his meager lunch in Matthew 14:14-21

He only had a few loaves and fishes, and Jesus had 5,000 mouths to feed But gifts in God’s hands can be & often are divinely multiplied to meet the demands of greater works

  • Generous people give as a byproduct of their own personal transformation

The story of Zacchaeus, in Luke 19 is the story of a transformed giver- a tax collector moved by Jesus’ call to come back to God’s ways transforms from “collector of money” to “giver of money”!

  • Generous people give when others will not

In Philippians 4:15-16  the apostle Paul laments the lack of response from the churches he’s encountered.

Even when he was ministering to others, far away, in Thessalonica, the Philippians were giving to his ministry!

Secret Of Transformation — Prophet Tony Mathias

RENEWING THE MIND
God is a Spirit. He made you in His likeness and image. So you are a spirit too. You have a ‘soul’ [mind] and you live in a physical body. John 3: 3-6; 4:24; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; When you are born again, God lives in your spirit, which becomes brand new. You are then able to fellowship, communicate and live in friendship with God spiritually.

Your spirit becomes God-conscious. Your physical body and mind are the same as before. Being in contact with the physical world they make you world-conscious and self-conscious.

The mind thinks in a worldly way, rejecting what the Spirit says Romans 8:6-7; For example, it continues to think negatively, be depressed, gossip, have fear… Even Christians are known to live in this way. A major reason: – they lack knowledge of God’s Word, or even if they know they are unable to walk in it. And we will find out why. If the soul [mind] is poor your whole life will be poor. If your soul prospers, your whole life will prosper; One who has a prosperous soul is quick to repent, believe and forgive. He has a positive mind, led by the Spirit. 3 John 2; Romans 8: 14; Romans 12:1-2; He thinks in line with God’s Word. Old ways of thinking have been swept away. He is disciplined, holy generous and so on.

The secret of a victorious Christian living is to renew our mind by changing the way we think, by thinking in line with God’s Word. Therefore we need to keep reading God’s Word, meditating on it and obeying it daily. Then we will be able to renew our minds and be transformed!

REJECTION AND LONELINESS
Satan has devised many weapons to destroy you. One of them is the self-destructive weapon of Rejection & Loneliness. When you are overcome with this weapon, you lose your peace, joy, and happiness, get discouraged, wallow in self-pity, get depressed, sick, fall an easy prey to temptation and worst still, reject God your only help.

Newspapers, magazines, films are full of stories of revenge, murder, suicide victims trying to deal with rejection and loneliness in their own ways. Satan has many friends who help him; parents, teachers, lovers, friends, and people we depend on, society…they hold this weapon in their hands

Someone wrote this letter:
God do you understand the pain of my rejection and loneliness? Where are you when I need you the most? I am lonely, afraid and insecure. Those I trusted most deserted me. Can I count on you Lord? Will you desert me? Is there an answer, a hope for me? Oh God help me! I’m confused.

God Replies:
Those the Father has given me I will never reject John 6: 37 – Though others may reject and desert you, I will not! I willingly accept those who trust me. I did not condemn the woman caught in the act of adultery though others did. I reject the sin but not the sinner. I freely forgive those who ask me to. I will never forget you I have carved you on the palms of my hand…do not be afraid for I am with you.” Isaiah 49:15-16; 41: 10
I am with you night and day. I love you and I will never leave you. Yes, I understand your suffering, pain of rejection and loneliness. I suffered too. I was despised and rejected by others. You are not alone. Haven’t you read the scriptures? He came unto his own and his own received him not. John 1:11 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, acquainted with grief: and we turned our backs on him. Isaiah 53:3 Moses said –My own people won’t listen to me anymore…Exodus 6:12.. Cheer up! There is hope!

You are an over-comer, you can overcome rejection and loneliness. Don’t deal with it all by yourself. I’ll show you the way. Here is the solution. Don’t turn away from God. He takes care of you. He heals your broken heart “Give all your worries and cares to God he cares about what happens to you.” 1 Peter 5:7 “He heals the brokenhearted, binding up their wounds.” Psalms 147:3. Don’t turn away from others; Go where you are assigned. Get Involved in the local church – “take care of traveling teachers, missionaries” “care for orphans and widows in their troubles” and there are many other things you can do. 3 John 1:5; James 1:27.

Sharpen Your Axe — Prophet Tony Mathias

Abraham Lincoln said: “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four hours sharpening the axe”

This is what I plan to do with this teaching – To show that you are God’s battle Axe [skills, talents, abilities, gifts, resources].

He is waiting to use you: He can only do so to the extent you are sharp and cutting edge. No one, not even God Himself will sharpen your axe for you. You have to do it for yourself. And when that is done you will be able to complete the work God gave you.

Two key scriptures I have selected here are: Jeremiah 51:20 & Ecclesiastes 10:10.
NLT Jeremiah 51:20 “You are my battle-axe and sword says the LORD. “With you I will shatter nations and destroy many kingdoms.” Ecclesiastes 10:10

If you don’t sharpen your axe, it will be harder to use. If you’re smart, you’ll know what to do.

A young strong and energetic wood-cutter was employed by a timber merchant. His assignment was to pull down trees. Given a good salary, good work-conditions and a strong axe he was determined to do his best. The First Day he brought down 15 trees and was congratulated by his boss- “Congratulations,” said the boss. “Carry on the good your work you are doing!”

The Second Day he worked harder remembering the encouraging words of his boss but was able to pull down only 10 trees despite his hard work.

The Third Day was even worse – He brought down just 7 trees though he worked much harder this time. Day after day lesser trees were brought down – He wondered why? He said to himself: “Am I losing my strength?” Plucking up courage – He approached his boss and apologized, saying: -“I do not understand what is going on. Day by day I am bringing down lesser number of trees though I work harder each day

The Boss replied: “When was the last time you sharpened your axe?”

“Sharpen? – I had no time to sharpen my axe. I have been so busy trying to cut trees…” A boxing match may last ten minutes. But preparation time for the event in sharpening boxing skills may take weeks. Preparation is the key ingredient to success

You Are God’s Battle-Axe Jeremiah 51:20

“You are my battle-ax and sword says the LORD. “With you I will shatter nations and destroy many kingdoms.”

What a privilege and honor to be God’s Battle-Axe! Are You God’s Battle Axe? This world is a battlefield. God is calling us to spiritual warfare. Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood….” Because we are His battle axe to destroy the kingdom of darkness and establish the Kingdom of God in the hearts of man, we must be a sharp battle axe in the Lord’s hand. *

Signs Of A Dull Axe – Ecclesiastes 10:10 “If you don’t sharpen your axe it is harder to use; if you’re smart, you’ll know what to do.” It is pathetic to see one begin and end as a clerk in an organization. Perhaps he has little vision and motivation for arriving at the top. It is false security to only feel fulfilled at work, comfortable with colleagues, boss, and the company. Such people would never think of pushing themselves out of their comfort zone? One imminent danger! Complacency can derail your career.

If you are not cutting-edge, God cannot use you mightily. He will use you in proportion – The job you handle may include management of the home, finance, business, working in an establishment and so on. But wherever you are, you will portray signs of a sharp or dull axe. A dull rusty axe will show a mediocre person not willing to do his best; not interested in updating his field and industry; not seizing his God-given opportunities; no zeal; complacency, content to live life the way it is, non-repentant, no vision, no goals, no zeal for the Kingdom of God. Most never update, never improve their skills. They think what they have learned is good enough – not so! Good is the enemy of better. They become dull of hearing Hebrews 5:11 when they refuse to renew their minds holding on to their own mindsets and not taking on the mindset of the Lord.

Those that are dull of hearing are un-teachable, because they have no desire to listen and that can lead to hardness of heart. [Pharaoh had a hardened heart, he was un-teachable]. They must rise from doing good to doing better. It is our attitude [mindset] that determines our altitude. Sharpening our skills from time to time is the key to success. Many are busybodies who have forgotten the value of rest – they become burnouts or misfits. They need to rest in-between: Even the Lord himself went to sleep in the boat – Jesus “Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while” Mark 6:31

Psalmist says: “Be still and know that I am God. Psalms 46:10. 

Isaiah 40:31 “They that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength…”

John Milton: “They also serve who only stand and wait!”

William Henry Davies: “What is this life so full of care we have no time to stand and stare”

Work became toilsome after Adam and Eve disobeyed God and sin entered the world. Sin and disobedience to God’s Word, make the “axe” dull and rusty. Therefore we must hide God’s Word in us Psalms 119:11.

Satan’s goal is that we lose our cutting edge and become ineffective witnesses for our Lord Jesus. He makes efforts to keep us constantly busy with other things and even in our secular work – so that we do not have intimacy with God. But God, on the other hand, has a way of sharpening dull Christians if we only return to where we lost our cutting edge reach out and reclaim it!

*Does Your Axe Need Sharpening? Do you feel you have lost your cutting – edge? Has your axe become dull?

You once had a great desire to read Christian books, attend seminars and conferences, hear Christian videotapes, attend gospel crusades, intercede, fast and pray meditate and evangelize and win souls, but it does not seem so now. Has more of the world come in? Has zeal for the house of the Lord diminished?

Are you a spectator at Church and not a participant? Have you made it a practice to keep sinning? Are you a busybody? [No time for God] Then you need to sharpen your axe.

*How to Sharpen Your Axe?

Acknowledge Lordship of Jesus Christ “Acknowledge Jesus Christ in your heart as Lord. If anyone asks why you do so, be ready to tell him, gently and respectfully.” 1 Peter 3:15. Take time to cultivate relationship, friendship and intimacy with God. Acknowledge God’s Word “For the word of God is active and alive sharper than…” Hebrews 4:12 Take time to cultivate intimacy with his Word.

The Bible shows you how – Seek his Kingdom and his Righteousness Matthew 6:33.

We need to judicially read and understand worldviews so that in that context we are able to reply according to God’s Word the reason for our hope in this hopeless world.

Be His Mouthpiece When the Word of God is rich in us, we will be a sharp axe in His hands.

We need to be His mouth-piece as ministers of reconciliation, while we seek his Kingdom and righteousness Hebrews 4:12; 2 Corinthians 5:18; Matthew 6:33

The Lord GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: Isaiah 50:4

We are God’s Battle-Axe in his hands. We must ensure we are cutting-edge and not dull so that he can profitably use us in the battlefield.

If we don’t sharpen our axe [ourselves] it will be harder to use.

Complacency will not only derail our career but also calling, place and function in the Body of Christ which is an organism rather than an organization.

Sharpening our skills from time to time is the key to success. We are always in need of sharpening.

We sharpen our axe by:

  • Acknowledging Jesus Christ as our Lord [He owns us]
  • Acknowledging God’s Word
  • Seeking God’s Kingdom and His Righteousness
  • Becoming His mouth-piece

Nuggets of Wisdom (From A Man Named AGUR) — Rachel Mathias

Agur the son of Jakeh is a Bible Character found in the Book of Proverbs Chapter 30, better known as Agur Bin Jakeh. The word Agur means ‘one who is brave in pursuit of wisdom’.

We can glean several prized nuggets from this chapter in verses 5 to 9 such as:
God’s Word is true and flawless, all else a falsehood. God always keeps His promises. We are not to add to His Words. He understood what it meant to live a life of contentment and the paradox of poverty and riches – wherein asking for poverty might lead to stealing or speaking evil against God or asking for riches that might lead to being full of himself and denying God. So he asked neither for poverty nor for riches but only for his daily bread.

Agur understood the significance of the Book of Proverbs which displays the need for God’s Wisdom to be found only in God’s Word that teaches you how to live well; the need to be open to hearing God, receiving His Wisdom through His Word recorded in the Bible.

We are told in 2 Chronicles 1:7, 10, how God was willing to give Solomon whatever he asked for and how Solomon opted for ‘wisdom and knowledge’ to govern and lead His people rather than riches, fame, honor, long life, and victory. Not – surprisingly, he received what he asked inclusive of great wealth (vs 12).

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Proverbs 4:7. We need to start with wisdom, add to it knowledge, and we will get true understanding.

Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus I come before you today with a humble heart bowing down before you in worship. I ask you to fill me with the spirit of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of Your Word.

Oh, how I long to be in Your presence. Speak to me words of wisdom through Your Word. Lord help me to be both hearer and doer of Your Word. Since the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom help me obey Your Word in fear and reverence; that Your Word would guide me to live a holy and peaceful life in Christ Jesus. Amen!

Activate His Power — Prophet Tony Mathias

1 Samuel 17:46,48. “This very day, will the Lord will put you in my power; I will defeat you and cut off your head. And I will give the bodies of the Philistine soldiers to the birds and the animals to eat. Then the whole world will know Israel’s God…Goliath started walking towards David again and David ran quickly towards the Philistine battle line to fight him.”

David confronts the Goliath the giant champion of the Philistines with boldness by vocalizing his faith thereby activating the anointing he received from Prophet Samuel 1 Samuel 17:46. The anointing broke his bondage of fear to boldly confront the giant and make him a winner.

faithinactionWe who belong to Jesus have received the anointing 1 John 2:27. And we can activate the same by speaking faith-filled words. We have received the gift of righteousness and it is written that the righteous shall live by his faith Habakkuk 2:4. And we are supposed to walk by faith and not by sight all the time. This life consists of ‘faith-in-actions.’ Vocalizing our faith words is faith-in-action which releases anointing for miracles.

And how do we vocalize our faith?

We need to boast of His ability Ephesians 3:20 being conscious of His greatness within us 1 John 4:4, testifying what He has done in and through us Psalms 22:22 and act on our faith. Our words locate us.

We need to declare [speak] faith-filled [scriptural] words like:

  • The Greater One lives in me.
  • I am more than a conqueror.
  • His power is at work in me today, to bless and transform lives.
  • I am blessed and highly favored and so on.

Find scriptures on faith, decree and declare them.

Be blessed!

Open Doors No Man Can Shut — Prophet Tony Mathias

walking-through-open-doorWhile approaching the entrance of a mall, glass doors that were shut opened on their own. I stood at that spot and the doors remained open. It got me thinking. If I had stayed a few feet away, those glass doors would remain shut.

Revelation 3:8. “See I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut.” God has opened for us doors that were shut and locked which remain open, because His favor rests on us. All we need to do is walk by faith and not by sight as we approach these doors in our lives. As God’s children, it is our birthright to walk in God’s favor.

The key is confession – “What you say is what you get.” Doors open when you always believe and confess that you’re walking in the favor of God. In fact, your positive confession is your faith in action. Favor is God’s grace, His free gift making room for you Proverbs 18:16. Grace is God doing for you what you cannot do. Eg. “By grace ye are saved” – we couldn’t save ourselves, God’s grace did it. By walking in God’s favor, you have special privileges.
talkingaboutproblems
Many are not walking in the favor of God because of negative confession; dwelling in the past rehearsing hurtful feelings, mistakes, failures, wrong relationships and so on. That is why many are sick, depressed insecure. They have not understood the power of repentance and forgiveness to wipe out unpleasant memories. Christianity is based on the law of forgiveness and an empty tomb.

All of us have had some bad past – disappointments, failures, mistakes, wrong relationships, missed opportunities, sin, guilt, and sadness. If we dwell on it, it will repeat itself; we will be robbed of our present enjoyment and future fulfillment. We will lose self-confidence. We will never dream big. We will never start anything new or give up half way. We will get bitter instead of better, sick depressed unhappy and others will get sick of us. We will doubt God and his power.

forgetthethingsofthepastTherefore God says – “Do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!” Isaiah 43:18-19 – When God determines your future He does not consult your past. Yesterday is history, tomorrow mystery, let not today be pastry!

Jacob deceived others [that was the meaning of his name] and got deceived by others. Genesis 32. God gave him an overhaul changed his name to ‘Israel’ which means ‘Over-comer.’ He did not dwell on his past. He obeyed God and changed his name thereby changing his world. The utterance of his new name changed made him an over-comer – dishonest to honest, lying to truthfulness.

Zacchaeus a greedy tax collector welcomed Jesus the Word of God at his house with genuine repentance Luke 19 – did not go back to his past; turned from cheater to benefactor [generous]; sinner to saint launched into his future as bishop.

Mary Magdalene a well-known prostitute, the last to leave the cross the first to announce the resurrection; changed her future dishonor to honor; sinner to saint by forsaking her past by embracing the Living Word [Christ] – Matthew 27 & 28.

Abraham Lincoln lost several elections but kept trying; born in poverty; did not look to his past; traveled from rags to riches, poverty to affluence ended as President of USA.

What God has done for us He will do for you? Do not dwell on your past. It is all under the Blood! God can turn your mess into a miracle, give you a new beginning. Arise shine…

Psalm 103:2 says, “Bless the Lord, O my soul and forget not His benefits.”

There are a number of benefits of walking in the favor of God: Lay hold of His promises.

God’s favor brings wealth. He can even give you favor in purchase of land. Deuteronomy 8:7-9, 33:23; Psalms 24:1

God’s favor can bring promotion and recognition – Joseph had problems yet rose from pit to the palace by the favor of God 1 Samuel 16. God’s favor can bring you recognition and promotion despite problems.

For many memory of the past ruins their future. Don’t let your thinking of the past ruin your future whether poverty, insecurities, old mindset, or whatever. It is like driving a car forward with the foot on the brake. You need to ordain you good future, by the words of your mouth – if you take pains to find it in His Word. Say what God says. He says: The plans I have for you are for good and not for evil to give you a good future Jeremiah 29:11.

God wants us to stop dwelling on our past for He is doing new things. What then can we do?

A] Close the door to your past: Learn from it and then forget it.
Believe declare and act like you’re free – and you will!

B] Launch through the open door the future God has for you.
Find and complete God’s assignment for you by Communing with Him and Confirming it.

Be encouraged – The Door God that has opened for you no man can shut!

Would You Dare Do The Impossible — Prophet Tony Mathias

dotheimpossibleMatthew 9:1-8. Jesus told the man to do what he could not; He obeyed, dared to do the impossible and received his miracle! We ought to be like him – after hearing God speak to us in our situation, dare to do the impossible!

Don’t put off for tomorrow what you can do today!

John Osteen, the Father of Joel Osteen, commanded the blind to see, deaf to hear and cripples to walk and they got their miracle! Why? – Like the paralytic who got healed, they dared to do the impossible – “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

Luke 5:5. Jesus commanded Peter to let down his nets for a catch, he hesitated at first because he had caught nothing then he changed his mind: “Nevertheless at thy Word I will let down the net.”– He got results when dared to do the impossible.

People may have told you that you won’t get well. Doctors may have given up on you. And you may have given up on yourself in other areas too – saying: “Maybe I’m destined to remain single I will have to get used to it…I’ve been brought up in a poor family let me content to stay the way I am.”

You have the power to change these facts with the truth of God’s Word when you dare to do the impossible “Nevertheless at Thy Word I Will Act?” – Believing God’s Word is acting on it – James 2:20– “Faith without works—is dead.”
Your choice determines your destiny

Saying you believe and not acting like you do is dead faith – Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible. Faith brings God in the picture.
Act As If It Was Impossible to Fail – Be a History Maker and a World Shaker

Let us do an exercise:
Substitute the word ‘believe’ with ‘act.’
“And these signs shall follow them that ACT [believe] on my word.” Mark 16:17
“He that ACTS [believes] on my word, the works I do shall he do and…” John 14:12

“Now faith is!”…“Now is the appointed time the time of God’s favor!” Hebrews 11:1, 2 Corinthians 6:2
Faith is to be acted in the present. Acting on the Word brings it to pass now! Hoping keeps your blessings in the future.

noahsarkNoah believed Hebrews 11.
How do we know?
He built the ark acting as though God told him the truth about the flood and safety.

The Paralytic believed.
How do we know?
Jesus said, “Arise!” – He acted like he could and found he was healed!

Has God spoken to you? – Find His word in your situation, act like it is true and receive your miracle.

There is a story told of an old lady in Texas badly afflicted with arthritis, could hardly walk. The preacher commanded the demon of arthritis to leave her and it did. But she seemed no better. She still hobbled – Three days later she came for prayers, the preacher told her to go back as she was healed. A little later people saw her running around. Why? – Because she dared to do the impossible. She acted on God’s Word and God kept His Word.

Many have lived for years with fears. The devil may have told that you cannot live a normal life, you will continue to be sick, you cannot get married; you cannot have children; you will always be poor– do not believe his lies, rebuke him! Act on what God spoke to you personally dare to do the impossible! “God always watches over His word to perform it.” Jeremiah 1:12

Impossible only means that you haven’t found the solution yet.

Another story – A dog had the habit of chasing cars. His master decided to chain him to the tree. Every time a car sped along he leaped but was limited by the collar and the chain. Finally, he gave up. When his master found he had improved he unbuckled the collar of the chain so he could easily move out of it. He was surprised to find that even though cars sped along his dog was unable to run after them because he still felt the collar and did not realize his master had loosened it.

Jesus came all the way to destroy the works of the devil and set the oppressed free. 1 John 3:8; Acts 10:38. He loosed everyone’s collar. Act like you are free do the impossible.
“You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free”

A young boy of fifteen afflicted with club feet from birth, walked painfully on the side of his ankles for years. He heard the gospel preached about the Master coming to set the captives free. He believed, acted out his faith, dared to do the impossible. His feet went flat on the ground; he discovered Jesus had set him free!

Believe and act as if it were impossible to fail!

You can get anything you desire in life – Marriage Church Growth, Business or whatever
Three Famous 3Ds you ought to remember to do the impossible.
Dream [thought]; Declare [word]; Do [act]

Here is an example of what singles desiring marriage could do.

DREAM…your marriage children home. Keep that picture vivid and alive in your imagination. Your marriage mate in love with you, a worshipper, financially well off, children successful walking in God’s ways!
Conquer your past by focusing on your future – First dream your painting then paint your dream – How big would you dream if you knew you couldn’t fail?

DECLARE The Prophet may have said, “I see a door opening and the right man…ring on your finger.” God may have assured you of marriage by His word.

SAY [accordingly]: “My ‘divine select’ has come to present me with his wedding ring. Thanks be to God my matchmaker. I am no longer single but married to God’s choice, the joy of my life with a home of my own. We are one – no one can separate what God has joined 2 Chronicles 20:20, Genesis 2:18, Psalms 68:6, Matthew 19:6”.

DO…Put your faith in action. Show you believe God as though he told you the truth. For – “He who acts on God’s Word hath.” Buy a special ring, wedding veil, silver shoes, bow-tie, suit… as a reminder!

Be a history maker and a world shaker!

Be Grateful, for gratitude is a magnet for favor – In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Put this teaching in practice daily! Dare to do the impossible.

Dream, Declare, Do then watch the results!

Arise, Shine! — Prophet Tony Mathias

Isaiah 60:1

ariseandshineArise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.

Both words ‘Arise’ and ‘Shine’ indicate a positive change in line with Jeremiah’s prophetic word – “I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” [Jeremiah 1:5; 3 John 2]

Acts 12 Peter’s chains fell off prison doors opened when the Angel walked in…
Jesus is alive, He rose from the dead. If you received Him and are born-again, He is the light that shines within you. You may be overwhelmed, feel imprisoned with problems and difficulties, but turn your eyes upon Jesus who lives within you and your face will shine. You certainly will not be put to shame. Psalms 34:5.

Since Jesus came into my heart,
Floods of joy o’er my soul like the sea billows roll

Acts 14 When Paul said to the impotent man “Arise!” he leaped and walked.
John 5:7-8 A sick impotent man was healed by Jesus at the Pool of Bethesda. The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me – Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.” And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked. – “It’s not whether you get knocked down it’s whether you get up.”powerinjesusname

Your prison doors were opened, your chains fell off the day Jesus walked in. Though your finance, business, marriage or health may be down, there is hope, for Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever Hebrews 13:8. And you can be assured that the plans He has for you are for good and not evil, to give you a wonderful future.

Trust in the Lord and not in your own understanding; acknowledge Him and He will direct your path into that glorious future He has for you.

“Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.”

Therefore fix your gaze on Lord Jesus and his Word, come out of those prisons and be blessed. All you need to do is believe and declare it! Tell others they are free too! “Believe you can and you’re halfway there.”

Light up your world for Jesus said – You are the light of the world Matthew 5:14-15. And we know that our light is from His light.

If you traveled by air at night, you would see darkness through the window. But as the plane descends to land, you would see flickers of light of cars and houses. One light can make a difference in a dark world. No wonder Jesus said you are like the city on a hill which cannot be hidden. Child of God you cannot be hidden. Your light is shining. Let it shine brightly. Why? – Because “Nations will come to your light and kings to the brightness of your radiance.” Isaiah 60:3. Unbelievers, influential people, celebrities will come to you because God’s glory is shining through you. You will draw them to Jesus! So light up your world.

Shine, Jesus, shine Fill this land with the Father’s glory
Send forth Your Word, Lord And let there be light

Do the works of Jesus, for Jesus said: “…he who believes in me the works I do he will do and greater works too. And he will do anything you ask [demand] in his Name. John 14:12-14. When we use Jesus’ Name, He Himself does the work. Peter demanded the cripple at the temple to be healed in Jesus’ Name and he got healed Acts 3. He was, in fact, demanding the devil to leave him. All power and authority are in Jesus’ Name.

You as God’s child are valuable. You as a believer have a ministry to Encourage; Exhort; Comfort; Build; Reconcile; Deliver; Heal by the laying on of hands.

Say: The Name of Jesus belongs to me. Whatsoever I demand in His Name according to His Word He will do it. So in the Name of Jesus I will Encourage, Exhort, Comfort, Build, Reconcile, Deliver and Heal by the laying on of hands. I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me.

Be Blessed!

Simple Steps To Answered Prayer — Prophet Tony Mathias

simplestepstoansweredprayerOnce saved through receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior Romans 10:9, you can position yourself to receive answers to prayer. Secondly, make sure you have no unconfessed sin in your heart that includes unforgiveness for that displeases God. Sin will prevent your prayers being answered.

If you don’t forgive people, your Father will not forgive your wrongdoing. Galatians 5:19-21; Psalms 66:18; Matthew 6:15; Isaiah 59:2.

The good news is that if you repent, confess your sins and forgive, He will forgive you. 1 John 1:7-9

Having done this, let me share with you simple steps to answered prayer.

1. ASK
If you don’t ask, you don’t receive. James 4:2-3
If you ask the Father in the Name of Jesus you receive. John 16:23
Ask and make sure what you are asking is in line with God’s Word. God does not answer prayers that do not line up with His Word. His Word is His will for you. Jeremiah 1:12

2. RECEIVE
“What things soever you desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” – Mark 11:24. When you ask God for something believe you receive the answer to your prayer instantly – in the supernatural. Believe He heard your prayer and answered it at that very moment because you asked in Jesus Name, in line with His Word or Will and in faith taking Him at His Word. Use your God-given imagination to see yourself presently with it [now] and that pleases Him. Hebrews 11:6.

3. WAITpowerinprayer.jpg
“Wait on the Lord…wait, I say, on the Lord.” – Psalms 27:14
The ‘waiting time’ is that interval of time between the asking and the demonstration of it where you actually see or feel it in the natural. Now this waiting time is crucial because Satan will try to make you doubt God heard and answered you.

So what do you do? Thank, praise and worship God because He answered your prayer. That is faith-in-action – acting like you have it before you see it with your physical eyes.

MANIFEST [Demonstrate / Display]
From your side, you have taken the first three steps. From God’s side He heard you and now manifests the answer to your prayer. Make sure you thank Him for manifesting the answer to your prayer.

If you will follow these simple steps, you will see an answer to all of your prayers big or small. We serve a big God! – Dare to believe and act on His Word and reap the benefits of answered prayer. ‘Now, Faith is the assurance of things hoped for the evidence of things unseen. Hebrews 11:1.

Release His Power By Vocalizing Your Faith — Prophet Dr. Tony Mathias

david-goliath1 Samuel 17:46 – 48. “This very day the Lord will put you in my power; I will defeat you and cut off your head. And I will give the bodies of the Philistine soldiers to the birds and the animals to eat. Then the whole world will know Israel’s God…”

In this passage of scripture, we see how David confronted Goliath, the giant champion of the Philistines, with boldness.

How did he do that? – David was anointed by Prophet Samuel. He activated this anointing by vocalizing his faith [1 Samuel 17:46] – thereby releasing the power to defeat the Goliath. But what also happened prior to this was that the anointing broke his bondage to fear that enabled him to boldly confront the giant and make him a winner.

The key to activating the anointing is through vocalizing “faith-filled words”.

You too can do the same and prove to be a winner – How?

Activate your anointing by vocalizing your faith-filled words.

1 John 2:27 “The anointing you have received of Him abides [lives] in you.”
Habakkuk 2:4 “The righteous shall live by his faith.”

This life consists of many ‘faith-in-actions.’ Vocalizing your faith words is itself faith-in-action which releases the anointing for miracles. We are supposed to live this kind of life all the time releasing the anointing within by vocalizing faith words.

How do you do that?
Brag of God’s ability Ephesians 3:20; Affirm God’s greatness in you, be conscious of it 1 John 4:4; Testify what He has done in – through and for you. Psalms 22:22

Declaration Faith: [Say] –
The Greater One lives in me;
His power is at work in me today, to bless and transform lives.
His righteousness is expressed through my words and actions;
I am more than a conqueror!
By His power circumstances are framed for me in line with His Will.
I am a winner every day.
Glory to God!

The Unstoppable Blessing — Prophet Dr. Tony Mathias

Death and life are in the power of the tongue. There is tremendous power released in spoken blessings although the opposite is also true, so we must make it a habit to release words of blessings for they will return pressed down shaken together running over. Luke 6:38.

Blessing is close to God’s heart – a force when released can bring in your harvest. Let us examine a few things blessing can do.

Blessing Accompanies His Presence
You were given admission into God’s presence at new birth through the blood of Jesus Hebrews 10:19. He came to live in you. 1 Corinthians 6:19. And because He indwells you so does His presence and blessings. His blessing always accompanies His presence. No one can rob His blessings from you. Only you can hinder His presence and blessing through sin and negativity. Grab a hold of the revelation that His presence and blessing is sealed in you through the blood of Jesus and you will succeed in all areas of your life. It is yours now!

The blessing is a spiritual invisible force resulting in God’s favor in all areas of life, finance, relationship, health…eliminating all obstacles between you and God’s promises! You don’t have to chase blessings when you already have them! – 2 Samuel 6:11 Obed-Edom’s life was blessed because of God’s presence. God’s blessing always accompanies His presence.

Blessing Reverses the Curse
James Goll in his book “Deliverance from Darkness” talks about the power of blessing. He describes a situation where he pronounced prophetic blessings in an assembly and a woman got instantly healed of paralysis as the power of God went through her. She started to walk and then dance. He said that he saw many delivered from demons and dramatically healed when he proclaimed blessings of the finished work of the “Cross” of Jesus.

Blessing is the most powerful force on the earth set into motion by our words and action. When decreed in faith, they drive back evil forces by reversing curses and bring forth non-existent blessings Romans 4:17, Proverbs 25:11; 16:24; Luke 6:45 – To Bless is to speak well of. To Curse is not to speak well of. – Look for and prophesy biblical blessings.
Genesis 12:3; Numbers 24:9 Blessed is he who blesses and cursed is he who curses. – Spoken Blessings an excellent way to intercede Ezekial 22:30; Hebrews 4:16

Blessings Created
When the Lord puts a desire in your heart to bless someone, be attentive to his needs. They may be lacking in love or finances, prey to temptations; harassed by fears, needing guidance. Discern the kind of blessing they or you need using scriptural references. Ask Holy Spirit for scriptures to ‘create a blessing’ [Use a concordance when needed] – You could also mail it to those you are interceding for; It would encourage them.

Example: Create a blessing for one facing deep sorrow according to 2 Corinthians 1:3
“May God our Father comfort, encourage and protect you from despair. May He cause His face to shine upon you as you rejoice in the midst of troubles and trials, putting your faith in Him being confident of His loving kindness toward you? May He give you His peace…?

Blessing or Curse a Choice
Do not repay evil with evil…but with blessing…so that you may inherit a blessingsandcursesblessing (1  Peter 3:9).

Discover that it is more blessed to give than to receive!
Generational curses are broken through blessing. “The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed.” Proverbs 11:25

A man wanted to be successful in his business of selling machinery. A rival appeared proclaiming, he had a better machine. Now this man began to worry and feel insecure that his machine would not be sold.

Another friend came along and encouraged him saying:
“Wipe out fear, knowing that God protects your interests, and that the right machine will be sold, by the right man, to the right man.” “Bless your competitor all day be willing not to sell your machine, if it is not God’s idea.”

He did as he was told and found the outcome remarkable. The other man’s machine refused to work, and he sold his without the slightest difficulty. “Bless your enemy, and you rob him of his ammunition.” Romans 8:28. – Blessing neutralizes evil “But I say unto you, love your enemies…

“Let your thoughts about everyone be for their good. Sometimes people bring financial hardship to themselves by dwelling on other people’s financial difficulties. What you focus on you draw to yourself. Rather see them getting out of their difficult situations and experiencing abundance. The blessings you send come back to you multiplied.

The Blessing Principle

  • The end purpose is blessing others – serving a need.
  • The more God blesses us, the more He expects us to bless others. Luke 12:48
  • Our blessings should flow to others – Blessed to be a blessing. Genesis 12:2-3.
  • Our blessings to others come back multiplied. Luke 6:38
  • In blessing others, God takes care of our needs. Luke 18:29-30

Are You Too Busy For God? — Prophet Dr. Tony Mathias

Haggai 1

Idols have always stood in the way of our relationship with God. Prophet Haggai told Israel they were too busy for God, they had left God’s temple in ruins, doing other things resulting in lack and dissatisfaction. When they repented threw off this Idol of Busyness, obeyed God, rebuilt His temple and invited Him to live with them, God promised to be with them.

Busyness is one of the greatest idols people worship in their daily routine, not just cars or homes. It blocks Intimacy with God fellowship with family and friends and brings lack and dissatisfaction: “All our busy rushing ends in nothing” Psalms 39:6

Johannes Facius international speaker with recognized intercessory ministry wrote a book “God can do it without me” The title itself can spell the peril of being too busy for God. We can be too busy for God with many commitments on our calendars. but we will have to answer God what kept us busy [as stewards of time] on earth. 2 Corinthians 5:10

Is your temple in ruins? – What have you done with this idol of busyness? Have you crowded God out of your life? Is your busy schedule more important? How’s your relationship with God and His people?

What is the Outcome?
Without God you will not be satisfied. Without ‘believers fellowship’ you are alone. Have you planted much, harvested little?”

Have you discovered the Missing Link?
Spending quality time with God in the Word and Prayer. When Israel threw off that ‘Idol of spendingtimewithgodBusyness’ and rebuilt His temple, the Lord dwelled with them. Similarly, your personal temple needs rebuilding that is rebuilding your relationship with God. How?

Cast away that idol of busyness; spend time with God in Word and prayer; Fellowship with God’s people daily; Walk in holiness. Matthew 6: 33

“We must work the works of Him Who sent Me and be Busy with His Business while it is daylight John 9:4.” When the Lord is our shepherd we will not lack Psalms 23:1

Let us pray – Father I cast away this idol of busyness. Help me spend time with You in the Word and in prayer, to fellowship with Your people, walk in holiness and do the works You have assigned me to do. In Jesus Name!

My trips are divinely planned, designed and financed under grace in perfect ways.

The Lord teaches me to profit and leads me the way I should go.

I expect a change for the better; my best days are ahead.

The gift of man makes room for him and brings him before established people.

Let the weak say I am strong, I, therefore, say I am strong.

The Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?

I overcome the devil by the blood of Jesus and the Word of my testimony.

No evil shall befall me, no plague shall come near my dwelling.

Jesus took my infirmities weakness distress and bore my sickness and with his stripes I am healed.

He that has begun a good work in me will carry it on to completion until the day of Jesus Christ. By grace, I am saved through faith which is God’s gift to me. I am an heir of God and a joint-heir with Jesus Christ.

He says – “I will never leave you, Ii will never forsake you. I am with you always.” His angels protect me. This is the day the Lord has made, I will be glad and rejoice in it. The Lord is my Shepherd I shall not lack. He is going to lead me in the path of righteousness.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for his rod and staff comfort me. He prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies. Surely goodness and mercy, not sickness and death, shall follow me all the days of my life. I am more than a conqueror through him. He always causes me to triumph in him. He has delivered me and yet shall deliver me and preserve me. He that is in me is greater than he that is in the world. The Lord is my strength and deliverance.

The Eternal God is my refuge and underneath are his everlasting arms. No weapon that is fashioned against me will prevail. Nothing shall hurt me. God has not given me a spirit of fear but of love power and self-control. I make sure to meditate and obey his Word for He said that I would be like a tree planted by rivers of water that brings fruit in season and whatever I did would.

I am his workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for me to do. I commit my ways to Him and He directs my path.
