From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? 2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. 4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? 6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
James 4:`1-6, KJV
Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
1 John 3:15, KJV
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:19, KJV
From his teaching he made the following vital points
If God makes a promise and it doesn’t come to pass, it is not God, but man because God is not a man that He should lie nor the son of man that He should repent. He says a thing and it comes to pass. Even if it takes a while it will surely manifest.
Asking requires humility
Nothing comes to you unless God approves. Everything that will be given to you should come from above. That’s where you seal the deal.
People who know how to access power from God will go ahead in life.
When you pass the test, you’ll access your promised land. God takes you through the process to check your heart. He doesn’t want you to serve because of what you can get from Him but because you love Him.
The reason you don’t have is because you don’t ask. ASK! JUST ASK!
Nobody gets married without asking.
Ask based on need, Ask with wisdom and understanding. Don’t ask amiss.
Need means a necessity. If you have a necessity in your life now, you have a right to ask.
Everything and anything and beyond that you can ask for in domiciled in God’s riches in glory by Christ Jesus
Of what benefit is what I’m asking not just to me, but for/to others? Ask yourself this question before you ask for anything or make a request. Check your motives for asking.
If you are asking with a vow in mind, redeem your vow when your request is granted.
When you learn not to consume wealth upon your lusts, you are not asking amiss.

1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation. 2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body. 3 Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. 4 Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.
5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! 6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. 7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. 10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. 11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? 12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
James 3:1-12, KJV
He started the message by saying that a good leader will not manipulate his followers. We are not perfect as humans because our words are not perfect, because our mouths and the words we speak gives direction to our lives. He said “Wherever your mouth goes is where your life goes”
Wherever your mouth goes is where your life goes
He also mentioned in his teaching that the quality of the life we live cannot go beyond the quality of our thoughts. Our words carry power, so it’s of utmost importance that we stop joking carelessly and stop talking anyhow. He said “You must watch your words and be careful with your words and thoughts”
You must watch your words and be careful with your words and thoughts
In his teaching he said it was very important we watch the words we say, he said “nothing dies, until you say it with your mouth. Taming the tongue can only be by the help of the Holy Spirit. He emphasized that carefulness cannot tame the tongue, positive confessions also cannot tame the tongue.
The church is not for perfect people, it is for growth so people don’t continue in sin. The church is a place for correction.

Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. 3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
Isaiah 55:1-3, KJV
For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.
Hebrews 12:10, KJV
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Matthew 11:28-30, KJV
But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
1 Corinthians 9:27, KJV
“I have made a covenant (agreement) with my eyes; How then could I gaze [lustfully] at a virgin?
Job 31:1, AMP
He made the following pertinent points:
There is a place in God where nations will run to you.
In the character of God is consistency – God cannot lie, He cannot fail, He cannot change.
For everything, for greatness in life, there is a price to pay.
Practice is a price for winning
Time is the price for knowing God – Do you know God?
Prayer is the price for anointing.
Communication is the price for a good marriage
Fidelity is the price for the maximum blessing of marriage. It is important to be faithful to your spouse.
Righteous living is the price for exaltation
Honor is the price for access.
Discipline is the price for a life of no regret.
Seed is the price for harvest.
Your soul does not change, but it is constantly renewed. The price you have to pay is to contend with your body and mind.
A quickie is the longest you will ever face in your life, sex is not just for fun, this is because you are not just sleeping with the body, but with the spirit.
Delaying gratification is the price you will have to pay for fulfilling your glorious destiny. There are people that you will sleep with and will never be able to let go of because it is intercourse – interfering with every part of your body.
Sex is not bad but should be done within the confines of marriage. Why not wait?
What price are you ready to pay?
Will you wait? Pay the Price!
There is something you are here to solve, but will you be patient enough to follow through in disicpline?
The yoke of Jesus is the yoke of discipline. It’s not just giving your life to Jesus, there is a price to be paid – working out your salvation with fear and trembling.
Grace can lead you to hell if misappropriated. This is where grace can be dangerous. Grace is not a free will to sin, but to deliver us from sin.
