SUCCESS KEY IN GOD

There’s a huge difference between God’s success and the worldly success. In the world, almost anything is justified for success. People lie, steal, manipulate the law, all such of evil for money. But God’s success is very different. God’s success always stands on God’s principle.” 3 John 2 says, “Beloved, I wish above all things that you would prosper and be in health EVEN AS YOUR SOUL PROSPERS.”
It is God’s will for you to prosper, succeed, and be in health.” God knew you before He formed you (Jer.1:5) that’s why He need to take care of you more than you can imagine. Holy Spirit-led Success does not based on self-centered. James 4:13-17 warned against self-centered success.
When you allow the Kingship of God to direct your activities and your success is sure. In John 5:19-20 Jesus said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things so ever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise” Basically, Jesus was saying that His success totally depended on God the Father.
Every believer was called to live likewise, by let our goal setting flow through our love walk with Jesus Christ. John 15:4-7 instructs us to abide in JESUS CHRIST.

The key to God’s kind of success is the Word of God
Possessing the heart of meditation in the word of God leads to prosperity
God instructed Joshua to meditate in the Word day and night and observe to do it. If he would follow this admonition, then God’s promise of success and blessing were sure “This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. FOR THEN you will make your way prosperous, AND THEN you will have GOOD SUCCESS.”
All we need doing is meditating in God’s word regularly with all heart and follow the principle, then the success flow.
THE FEW FOLLOWING POINTS WILL ALLOW INFLOW OF GOD SUCCESS INTO YOUR LIFE
1. ABIDING IN JESUS CHRIST
2. COMMIT YOUR DECISIONS TO ns 1:18 the Apostle Paul mentions “the eyes of your heart.” As you begin to gain an understanding of God’s assignments for your life, you must learn to see yourself succeeding at it. Let the Holy Spirit paint a picture in your heart of the future that God has for you. Don’t let fear and doubt paint your pictures family needs. The Bible says that the Holy Spirit will “show” you things to come. The Holy Spirit will “speak” and he will “show” (John 16:13-4). Let faith flow onto the canvas of your heart.

GOD IN PRAYER.
3. BUILDS YOUR LIFE AROUND THE PROMISES AND PRINCIPLES
OF GOD’S WORD, LIKE JOSHUA
4. BELIEVE IN GOD’S WILL FOR YOUR LIFE SUCCEES.
STOP SHORT-CIRCUITING YOUR POTENTIAL WITH DOUBT AND UNBELIEF.
5. SEE YOURSELF AS A SUCCESSFUL PERSON IN THE WILL OF GOD.

1. ABIDING IN CHRIST
Let it be your first priority. Remember what Jesus said in John 15:5 – “I am the vine and you are the branches; He that abides in Me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit; for without me you can do nothing.”
For the believer, abiding in Christ is the first and foremost key to God’s success.
Develop the habit of total dependency on Him, even when you are frustrated and it seems thing are not going as expected, submit yourself to His Lordship in fellowship and communion by Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; (Ephesians 5:19-20).

2. COMMIT YOUR DECISIONS TO GOD IN PRAYER.
Prayer is the key/2ce prayer is the master key, Jesus started with and ended with prayer, prayer is the master key.
Prayer will help you live in a state of abiding in Christ. Prayer must become as
Natural as breathing. For you don’t even think about breathing, you just breath in and out.
Prayer is simply communicating with God not only on your pressing issues, but in all your goals each day. Prayer builds spiritual “pipelines” through which God’s influence flows. Philippians 4:6, 7 says, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
3. BUILDS YOUR LIFE AROUND THE PROMISES AND PRINCIPLES
OF GOD’S WORD, LIKE JOSHUA
God said in Joshua 1:8, 9. To you “study My Word, speak My Word, and do what it says. Doing this will help you stay strong and successful wherever you go.” As a committed believer, you need to make a decision that you’re going to live by the Word of God; this will guarantee you of possessing where ever you matched with your feet.
Regardless the financial challenge, all you need doing is to claim His word in Phil.4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Make God’s word the brain box that control your life system while you must make up your mind that the promises and principles of God’s Word will become your standard.

4. BELIEVE IN GOD’S WILL FOR YOUR LIFE SUCCEES.
As you focus on abiding in Christ and living by His Word, you will start believing that it IS God’s will for you to succeed. As one old saint said, “God don’t make failures! He teaches failures how to succeed.”
Nothing can undercut your efforts more than doubt and unbelief. If you buy into the twisted idea that
God somehow gets glory when we fail, then you will be defeated before you ever start. Jesus said,
“Herein is my Father glorified, that you bear MUCH FRUIT; so shall you be my disciples.” If you are endeavoring to do what Key #1 says (abiding in Christ), then you can be sure that God wants you to succeed in His assignments for your life. If you experience set-backs then He will help you recover. But in the end, God wants you to fulfill and succeed in His plan. Jesus said in Mark.11:22-23 says, “Have faith in God. For verily I say to you, that whoever shall say unto this mountain, ‘Be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea’ and shall not doubt in his heart but shall believe that those things which he says shall come to pass, he shall have whatever he says.”

5. SEE YOURSELF AS A SUCCESSFUL PERSON IN THE WILL OF GOD.
Apply faith in see with the eye of faith that involves the realm of your heart and your imagination. In Ephesia

NEW TESTAMENT ARK OF COVENANT

God’s Ministers were the custodian of the new testament of Ark of Covenant.
The Ark played a significant role in the life of every existence being on the earth planet.
Therefore the Ark can be defined as a sacred crest that contains the sacred vessel of God for specific assignment on earth. The throne of invisible deity

a. Ark of gopher wood – Gen. 6:14 Noah; – Breeding of new generation.
b. Ark of bulrushes – Ex. 2:3 Moses’ mother: – Great freedom fighter.
c. Ark of Shitim – Ex. 25:10 God: – God’s law enforcement.

1st Ark protected the people of God from God’s judgment upon the world .
2nd Ark protected God’s people from worldly judgment upon God’s people.
3rd Ark protected God’s words (Law or Covenant).

HOW ARE WE CONNECTED OR RELATED TO THIS ARK OF THE COVENANT IN OLD TESTAMENT?

THE ARK OF CONVENANT CONTAINS THREE SIGNIFICANT OBJECTS NAMELY.
i. Stone tablet
ii. Aaron Rod – that budded
iii. Golden pot of Manna

I .The two stone tablet of the law: -Stand for our HEART & MIND. Heb. 8:10. I will put my law into their mind and write them in their heart.
ii. Aaron’s rod that Budded: -Is a gift of God in us as His minister which distinguished us from ordinary people.

iii. Golden pot which contains Manna:-Indicating eternal life. Col. 3:3- our life is therefore hidden in Christ Jesus and Jesus in God.

Our nations desperately need to be led today by God’s New Testament Ark of covenant.
Joshua said to the priest take up the Ark of the Covenant and went before the people.

Fear of unknown have made some ministers of God to voluntarily left God’s track to walk on satanic path forgetting that God will always protecting His Ark.
The hand of the Lord was against the city of Gath with a very great destruction.
1st Sam. 6:19 – God smooth men of Bethsamesh for looking into the Ark.

ue to disacknowledgement of this fact it has led to the disappearing of New Testament Ark of covenant and people were singing I – CHABOD – that is, glory and power of God is no longer existing in the church while seeking satanic power as a substitute.
“We need a leader like Samuel to restore our church to the New Testament standard.”
Now that we know who we are, what then can we do to attain maximum reward that pleases God the great rewarder.
Col. 4:17 – Paul said “Tell Archippus, take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord that thou fulfill it.
ISV – Tell Archippus, “see that you complete the ministry you have received from the Lord.

2nd Timothy 2:3–5: Thou therefore endure hardness, a good soldier of Jesus Christ, (v4) no man that warreth entangleth himself with the affair of this life: that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
(V5) and if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned except he strive lawful.

Therefore the following few points among others were expect from us (MINISTERS) for maximum reward:

1. FAITHFULNESS. Prov. 28:20 – It take faithfulness for a steward to attain a greater height, for he shall continue to abound in blessing “A faithful man shall abound with blessing, but he that make hast to be rich shall not be innocent e.g. Ananias and Saphira end up in grave for their unfaithfulness. It required of steward for man to be found faithful.

2. FOCUS – “JOHN” John 1:22 – Who art thou? “I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness” John knew his primary assignment as Jesus Christ FORERUNNER, a core Evangelist and not a PROPHET or the SAVIOUR.
JESUS CHRIST – John 6:15 – Jesus flee from being installed as an Earthly king.
Jesus Christ recognized is assignment on earth as a redeemer of the world not earthly king

3. TOTAL SELF SACRIFICE – Mark 10:28 – 29:- The Apostle said we have left all and fellow thee what shall we have? Jesus said they shall have hundred fold now and eternal life. Jesus said follow me and I will make you. Elisha slew the oxen and follows Elijah ‘TOTAL ABANDONMENT’.

4. ABSOLUTE TRUSTING ON GOD:- Luke 22:35 – Jesus said unto the apostle when I send you out on a mission without purse, cloth, shoe lacked ye anything and they said no. When God send one on an errand he had provided the amenities needed ahead to accomplish the task, it only need spiritual eyes of faith to see it, because faith is a powerful tool, the spiritual legal tender that is acceptable all over the world without losing value or volume.eg Abraham and Isaac

5.DIVINE INSTRUCTION: – Ezekiel 37:7-10 – Ezekiel said, so I prophesied as he (GOD) commanded me, as I prophesied there is a noise and behold a shaking and the bone came together, bone to bone if you act as God commanded, you will be in control or command, because the instructor who is the commander is at work. Lam. 3:37 who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not.

PRIESTS AND KINGS

God Almighty, the King of Glory, I am that I am, in His sovereignty re-elected you among His chosen generation the royal priesthood (1Pet.2:9), the works of his hands which He created and formed in his image (Gen.1:27) into the office of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher. (Including Bishop, if I’m permitted to add it), in his vineyard as Priests and Kings for great exploits, in whom we became divine man to rebuild the old wastes, and the broken wall of the entire world, to proclaim liberty to the captive, the opening o the prison to them that are bound (Isaiah 61:1-4)
It is unfortunate that the respect and the administration attached to this office have been insulted and abused by some undesirable elements, while employed it to exploit saints intimidating, control and manipulating God’s children for selfish purpose .(1Sam.2:12-16).
It is a pity today seen some ministers running after MINOR=earthly wealth against MAJOR=God’s Kingdom.
Let me remind you of God’s supremacy over the wealth which is MINOR.
God, the Almighty remained Jehovah Jireh-Gen.22:14
God said “the silver is mine and the gold is mine says the Lord oh Host – Haggai.2:8; He also said, “Seek ye first the KINGDOM OF GOD and his RIGTHEOUSNESS “MAJOR”, and all these things “wealth=MINOR” shall be added unto you. Therefore, ho ye lost anointed man and woman of God arise a new and rebuild yourself back to God
It is never late to be wright. Not until you submit your scripts in the examination hall, now that you’ve not submitted your answer scripts, you are free to make a necessary alteration for positive change.
Come back home, for God still have keen interest in you.
And don’t for forget that God always clear the road for His anointed ones. Isaiah. 45:1-3
God want to work with you. Mark.16:20
God want to work for you. John 14:10
God want to work through you. Philippians 2:12-13
Simply because you are a unique individual; the PRIEST and KING for unique purpose on a unique mission to the world; come back home.

CHRISTIAN REAL MAN OF HONOR

The highest development of created life is MAN, God created man so that he might express
Himself in man (Roman 9:21, 23). A special vessel unto honour (2Corinthians 4:7) though man
is weaker than some animals, the weakness is far outweighed by man’s superior consciousness,
including his feelings and reasoning ability, he is also the unique life, in respect of plant and
animal life that God created, God said that each one was “according to their kind”
(Gen.1:11,12,21,24-25). But when He came to man, “God created man in His own image
(Gen.1:27) to have dominion over all that God created. But it is unfortunately man lost the
position, while find himself in PUSH (Pray Until Something Happened) position.
PRAYER WORRIOR. P.U.S.H- JABEZ P.U.S.H-(1Chro.4:9) Jabez circumstances forced him to
pray and he became more honorable than his brother to the extent that a whole city is called The
City of Jabez, where the scribes dwell (1Chro.2:55)
JOB P.U.S.H- (Job 42:10) Job was not restored until he pray for his friends
ELIJAH P.U.S.H- (1King17:1) Elijah pray for rain to ceased and also pray for rain to fall.
Elijah was a man subject to like passion just like you and I and he prayed earnestly (James 5:17).
The supernatural force generated from prayer make Prophet Elijah to outrun King Ahab
(1King18:46)
PROPHET AND PRIEST- Every Real Man of Honor is the priest and prophet of his family.
(Gen.35:18) as Rachel travailed, while considering the hard labour she had, name his son Benoni
for she died, but Jacob his father called him Benjamin.
Jacob called all his children and prophecy into their life’s individually (Gen.49:1-32)
POSITIVE IMPACTS. King David pure himself to his soldiers by trained them skillfully on how
to fight war with various techniques, this enable his armies to continue fight war and win
victoriously, when the strength is no more for King David.(2Samuel 21:15-17)
REAL MAN bears the pain alone for positive impacts, he never passes the pains to others
(Gen.22:1-8)

PROTECTIVE (Gen.33:1-3) The man of honour is the chief security of His family. Jacob
passed over before his family to meet Esau his brother, in case Esau want avenge for his
birthright.
VISION: -Vision is a fundamental requirement of a REAL MAN OF HONOUR,
The men of honor are focus Visionary, you got a vision from God and stay by it.
Joel 2:28-And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon
all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall
dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: John 18:37 Jesus Christ said, to
this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear
witness unto the truth. 1Co 7:20 Let every man abide in the same calling wherein
he was called. 1Co 7:24 Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein
abide with God. No vision speak at the beginning, but at the end, Hab 2:3 for the
vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not
