Have you ever wondered about the secrets and mysteries surrounding intimacy? Get ready to discover an enlightening perspective that will open your eyes and help you understand the true purpose of intimacy. In this article, we will delve into the teachings of Reverend Funke Felix-Adejumo and explore the deeper aspects of this fascinating topic.

Introduction. 

Welcome to a fascinating journey into the mysteries of intimacy! Yes, this topic is often avoided or superficially addressed, but today we’re going beyond appearances to discover the depth and richness hidden behind this divine gift.

Reverend Funke Felix-Adejumo, a powerful and respected voice in the body of Christ will guide us through this delicate yet crucial topic. Prepare for your eyes to be opened to a new understanding of intimacy and how it can enrich your life in ways you’ve never imagined before.

The Divine Purpose of Intimacy.

According to Reverend Funke, intimacy is not just a physical act but a profound expression of the union between two souls. God, in His infinite wisdom, created intimacy as a gift to humanity but with a much higher purpose than mere pleasure.

Intimacy and Connection.
Intimacy is the means through which two individuals can connect on a deeper level, strengthening the emotional and spiritual bonds that unite them. It is a way to express love, trust, and vulnerability.

Procreation.
While intimacy can be a source of pleasure, its primary purpose is procreation. God designed intimacy so that humans can bring new life into the world and fulfill their calling to be fruitful and multiply.

Marital Unity.
Intimacy should be reserved for the context of marriage, where two individuals come together in a sacred covenant before God. It is within this framework that intimacy achieves its fullest meaning and potential.

Holiness and Purity.
Intimacy is not something dirty or sinful but an expression of the holiness and purity that God desires for His children. When practiced according to divine principles, intimacy becomes a blessing and a reflection of God’s glory.

We will go deeper tomorrow and continue with Part 2

Consistency In Prayer – Apostle Arome Osayi Part 2

Consistency In Prayer – Apostle Arome Osayi Part 2

My personal journey took a dramatic turn when a close encounter with death unfolded right in my own quarters. A fellow student, lifeless, was brought to my doorstep, marking the beginning of a miraculous but complex chapter in my faith journey. Through fervent prayer, the young man was revived, only to pass away years later, leaving us with more questions and a community skeptical of our faith.

This sequence of events, coupled with a grievous betrayal after years of dedicated ministry, brought me to a critical realization: our understanding of God’s authority and timing is fundamental to our walk with Him. It was a painful but necessary lesson in the sovereignty of God—a lesson that taught me to align with His will rather than attempt to bend His timeline to fit my expectations.

The Power Within: Activating God’s Authority and Anointing

Our encounters with darkness, both spiritual and physical, underscored the necessity of divine power in our ministry. From confronting serpents on construction sites to facing opposition in our evangelistic efforts, it became evident that authority and power are essential for kingdom advancement.

This understanding led us to a deeper revelation of the Holy Spirit’s role in our lives. While many believers experience the Spirit’s presence, few transition to operating in the power that the Holy Spirit bestows. This power, as Jesus promised, is not only for casting out demons or performing miracles but for overcoming the daily challenges that believers face, asserting dominion over territories assigned to us by God.

The Journey to Activation

The path to activating this divine power involves understanding the relationship between the Spirit and power. The Spirit of God within us is meant to manifest as power through us, enabling us to fulfill our God-given mandates.

However, this activation is not automatic. It requires a conscious effort to align with God’s will, understanding the spirit we operate from, and committing to a life that reflects His character. It’s about stewardship of the divine gifts entrusted to us, ensuring that our actions and ministry align with the nature of God’s Spirit.

Kingdom Mandate: Governance Through Spiritual Authority

The ultimate goal of receiving the Holy Spirit’s power is to establish God’s kingdom on Earth. Every believer is anointed to exercise dominion over a specific territory—be it a geographical area, a sphere of influence, or a sector of society. Understanding this mandate is crucial for every kingdom functionary.

As we navigate the complexities of life and ministry, the chronos and kairos of God remind us that our journey is uniquely ordained. Our breakthroughs, challenges, and seasons of waiting are all under His authority. This realization compels us to trust in His timing, submit to His will, and actively engage in the spiritual processes that prepare us for the manifestation of His power.

Conclusion: The Call to Faithfulness and Power

The story that began on a remote campus in Benue State extends far beyond its geographical confines. It’s a call to believers everywhere to embrace the fullness of God’s Spirit, to understand the depth of His authority, and to actively engage in the kingdom mandate with power and conviction.

Let us be like wine, improving with time, as we submit to God’s processes and prepare for the activation of His power in our lives. May we journey with God, not on our terms, but in absolute surrender to His timeline and divine authority, trusting that He who began a good work in us will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Consistency In Prayer – Apostle Arome Osayi Part 1

In our devotionals, we will be bringing to you words from men of God that is blessing the body of Christ. Today, we look at one of the messages of Apostle Arome Osayi. Be blessed.

In the heart of Benue State, nestled amidst the wilderness of a remote city, a group of young believers gathered on a university campus, experiencing an extraordinary encounter with the divine. It was here, far removed from the glamor of city life, that the Lord spoke, heralding a mighty move of the Spirit that would sweep through the terrain, altering the course of history for the community and its people. This is a story of prophecy, faith, and the indomitable power of God, a narrative that unfolds the layers of divine timing, authority, and the manifestation of God’s kingdom on Earth.

The Prophetic Onset

Among us was a lady, profoundly gifted in prophecy, whose utterances were both a mystery and a revelation. She spoke of things so intimate and hidden that only a divine whisper could have unveiled them. Her prophecies were clear: a significant movement led by the youth was on the horizon, a movement that would challenge the dark forces entrenched in the land and usher in a new era for Christianity in the region.

This land, long surrendered to witchcraft and necromancy, was about to witness an extraordinary shift. Ministers of the gospel had fallen prey to the sinister shadows that lurked, their promising ministries cut short by unexplained tragedies. It was a cycle of spiritual resurgence and suppression, with each loss plunging the community deeper into despair.

The Importance of Consistency

Amidst this struggle, our prayer group on campus embraced a motto that underscored the essence of our fight: “In consistency lies the power.” We had witnessed firsthand the darkness that descended upon the land following the demise of a minister, a darkness so thick, it stifled hope and dimmed the light of faith.

The recurring cycles of death on campus, the wavering faith of many, and the challenge to the gospel’s credibility in the face of tragedy posed questions too profound for any human answer. It was in these moments of utter helplessness that we learned the hard truth about divine timing and authority.

Understanding Divine Timing and Authority

The Lord’s response to our cries and intercessions was a lesson in humility and trust. He revealed that the chronos and kairos—times and seasons—are under His sovereign authority. This revelation shifted our perspective on prayer and the will of God. Despite our fervent prayers and acts of faith, we understood that God’s plans are not subject to our timelines or expectations.

To be concluded tomorrow!

What Are You Thinking?

What Are You Thinking?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

What Are You Thinking?

I used to feel that my thoughts were harmless and not toxic since they remained in my realm of thoughts. I believed I wasn’t doing anybody harm – not my marriage, my situation, and of course, not myself. 

I was deceived and didn’t consider my thoughts ‘all that bad’, but I will admit they were far from positive, beautiful, and empowering. I beat myself down most of the time, thinking about the gloomy side of things and life. 

Those thoughts controlled me and my actions, and I was a very gloomy person, discouraged, and not achieving my goals. The question I want to ask us this morning is, what are your thought patterns about yourself and your marriage and relationship? 

“As a man thinketh, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7)

You are what you have been thinking about. Your marriage is as strong as your thoughts about it. Your relationship will be as strong as the thoughts you entertain.

You might be saying, “I don’t think of pornography, masturbation, fornication, or lustful thoughts. What about negative, evil thoughts?”

Proverbs 12:20 KJV [20] Deceit is in the heart of those who imagine evil: But to the counselors of peace is joy.

From this scripture, those who fill their hearts with evil, negative thoughts will be deceived.

God calls rebellion against Him and His word “evil”. That’s what He told the Israelites. What are you thinking about yourself, your partner, your spouse, your relationship, and your marriage?

You have to be disciplined enough to carefully choose your thoughts and not allow the devil to just dump any thoughts on your mind. I used to feel and think I was helpless about my thoughts, but I know better now. I thought that whatever thoughts came into my mind, I had to dwell on them. On the contrary, we are empowered to resist any thought that doesn’t benefit us.

We have to be strong enough to stand up to the devil and reject any negative thoughts. The Bible calls it ‘casting down’; this paints a picture of taking those negative thoughts and slamming them down. It’s a conscious, deliberate, and decisive effort in dealing with thoughts that seek to keep us down.

2 Corinthians 10:4-5 KJV [4] (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds;) [5] casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

A negative pattern of thinking becomes a stronghold when the devil makes it our regular pattern or way of thinking. Remember not to allow negative thinking patterns to fester in your mind towards your partner or spouse. Fill your mind with empowering thoughts. 

See the scripture in Philippians 4:8 of what the Lord calls right thoughts. He alone knows how best we should function because He created us.

Philippians 4:8 KJV [8] Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

We need to study each of these words in other translations because the battlefield is the mind. When we win in our minds, we win in life. Let your thoughts about your relationship and marriage be good thoughts, and you will eat the fruits thereof.

God bless your relationship and marriage.

Understanding That Special Gender

Understanding That Special Gender

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Understanding That Special Gender

1. Understand the God she serves
 
One of the sure ways to understand that special lady in your life is to seek to understand her maker.

Nobody understands a product like the manufacturer of that product. 

Nobody, no human being will ever understand her like God would.
 
So, the beginning of the journey is when the man develops a conscious relationship with God.
 
When you are rooted in God’s love, God will now cause His love to be shed abroad in your hearts.
 
As you begin to understand the breadth, the length and the depth and height of this love, this will give you a wisdom that surpasses every effort in trying to understand her, and you will know how to do the right things that will unlock her creativity and make her feel loved.

Eph 3:17-19 (KJV) 
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,  [18]  May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;  [19]  And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.


2. Understand the Needs she has
 
Her needs are specialized and peculiar.
 
They are different from your own needs.
 
From spiritual needs to physically needs and emotional needs, you have to find out!

You will immediately discover her preferences that what excites you on Television doesn’t not tickle her fancy! Find out and seek to meet those needs!
 
3. Understand the Language she speaks

Her language is like her password. It could be gifts, words of affirmation, quality time, physical touch or acts of service.

You don’t communicate to her on your own terms but on her own terms.
 
Find out her definition of “romantic” and go after that.
 
The definition of the word “romantic” is not what you find in a dictionary, but there is a dictionary in her mind with its own definition like no other, authored by her, and you have to find a way to retrieve that dictionary and check the definition which would often be different from what you think.

 
4. Understand the pressures she faces
 
She usually has pressures. Most times, she is not even seeking for those pressures to be taken away, because they are often necessities of life.
 
She just wants to know that there is somebody who understands what she is going though.
 
Many years ago, my wife explained this to me.
 
She was pouring her hearts to me, and expounding her pressures and at a point I burst out;
 
“Hey! I am not the Holy Spirit. I cannot take these things away!”
 
“And then she looked at me with that her angelic face that often makes my heart to race, and said,
 
“I know you are not the Holy Spirit. I am not asking you to solve these issues, I only want to have a feeling somebody understands what I am going through!
 
Wow! That is what that lady in your life wants! An understanding heart.
 
And that takes the pressures off the pressures!
 
She just wants an understanding, loving and caring man!

Unfortunately, most times, single ladies look for this in wrong places and often fall into the hands of men who are only looking for sexual gratification.
 
If you are a single lady, make your needs known to God and never offer your body in exchange for some care that will vaporise the next minute!
 
Wait for the process of meeting that right man who will love you appropriately and will take care of you!

May God grant you strength in your inner man to cooperate with God. 
So, I will stop here this morning.

Ultimately, pray for wisdom from God to help you be a good lover to your fiancée or spouse in very specific ways.
 
The Holy Spirit teaches us all things, so he would offer you some ideas.
 
I pray that God will give you wisdom in Jesus name!
