I saw that there are a lot of fears ruling this world and until you defeat them all, you will remain limited in manifesting your destiny
So many believers have been enslaved by these fears for 15, 20, 30 years and they think all is well with them, believe me, all is not well with them, it is a terrible sickness to be enslaved by fear. It won’t let you enter into the Glory God has prepared for you
The Lord exposed me to the realm of Victory (which is also the realm of miracles) and I made up my mind to never leave the realm all the days of my life. He told me “you must fear nothing if you will live in this realm and operate from here” and He began to show me one by one each of the fears that is ruling over the world and over mankind, and as he reveals these fears, I began to kill them one by one
Therefore, the reason why many Christians are not moving forward and might not move forward till they die is because they are too afraid to take certain steps that is meant to change their lives forever, and God will not do His own part until they take the bold step
I have experienced a lot of growth, victories, advancements, blessings and uncommon miracles in my life and ministry because I did not hesitate to kill these fears and obey the Lord
In my walk with God, I’ve come to realize that FAITH is not enough, I saw the way heaven respond so fast to help men and women of sacrifices, and I saw that people who live sacrificial lives rise to the top faster and become great very easily.
Why are people so fearful? It’s because they don’t want to die. They care so much about themselves and cannot die to themselves. The strength of fear is Self and Death
Hebrews 2:15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
And the proof of Love according to the Bible is to “lay down your life”, the question now is, how many of us have laid down our lives to follow Jesus and to serve Him?. If we say we love God and the brethren, then we must lay down our lives and live for God and the brethren. And if you can’t do this, it would be difficult for you to overcome any fear, you will keep making wrong decisions because of fear and you will keep failing to do what God wants you to do because of fear.
I spoke to myself and said “What do I have to lose if I have lost everything to Jesus including my life?”
John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
1 John 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
I currently stay in the northern area of Nigeria and this area is known for a lot of insurgencies and terrorism, recently, some bandits came to the streets I live and entered into some people’s houses, stole their items and cut them with sharp knives and matchet, they gave them serious injuries…and the people were so afraid, I could sense the spirit of fear in the atmosphere. And I said “God, I hate fear” and the Spirit of God said “you can’t die because you are already dead”, It was at that point I now understood what Jesus meant by saying “if you lose your life, you will save it”
Luke 9:24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
Now, let us be very practical, Ask yourself, What exactly am I afraid of?, Then look intently at the reason for that fear, you will see that it’s all about YOUR SELF and coupled with the fact that you don’t want to die—And why don’t you want to die? You don’t want to die because you are living for yourself. If you have died to your Self, you will not fear death, and in fact, death would be a gain to you (death will help you to go and enjoy your relationship with God better in heaven). But because God is faithful and will not let you die without fulfilling your divine purpose, He will not let you die untimely
So, to really not die is to die
Philippians 1:21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
People who really don’t want to die are those who are dying today but those who don’t fear death hardly die
And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die. Revelation 12:11 NLT
I don’t know what is in this life that people are so crazy living for and seeking after. I see how the forces of this world are controlling the lives of billions of people. Devil have studied them and knows that their lives are based on fears, lusts and selfish cravings, then He creates situations and events that will drive them into several traps and destructions he has set for them.
The more I draw closer to God, the more I hate to stay in this world. If I’m ever happy to stay in this world, it’s because I have an assignment to fulfill from God
Let me round off with this, You must strengthen your love for God and for God’s people to defeat fear and move forward in life, and Love is very practical, you don’t just say you love by the mouth, you must show it by your actions. See, if you start doing the things Fear says you should not do, you will be shocked by how your life and career will so greatly improve within one year
This is the connection: Kill fear to show love. For there’s no fear in love. If your love is perfect, it will have no fear, and this is the point where your spirit becomes a strong discerning spirit that accurately discerns the will of God always
1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love
May the Lord help you to be wise enough to live above fear. Amen
