Thank God you were part of the 21 days Prayer & Fasting. It has been the most amazing time seeing the God of Vengeance at work on behalf of His Elect. So, Make the most of the 7 days of thanksgiving to harvest your testimonies. There shall be no carry over of all that is yours in this year of Waves of Glory. Jesus is Lord forever.
Greetings in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ, I believe everyone's faith is already on fire for all round triumph through the amassing revelation and impartation all through the month of April and to God be all the glory
Truly, it has been our year of multiplication indeed and I believe multiplication shall remain the portion of every winner in... ever increasing dimension in Jesus name. As you may be aware, we have exceptional supernatural church planting experience this year such as we have never known in the history of this church. This year alone, we planted well over one thousand churches as a mission within Nigeria alone! This is apart from the amassing spread that is also on - going in our foreign field operation all over the world, again to God be all the glory.
However, according to the prophetic focus of the year in Jeremiah 30: 19
"I will multiply them they shall not be few and
I will glorify them they shall not be small". (Jer. 30:19).
What does this glory represents? Among other things this glorification implies empowerment for wealth. The Prophet Haggai said;
"The glory of this house shall be greater than the former...the silver is mine and the gold is mine saith the Lord of host". (Haggai 2:6-8).
In defining the wealth of Solomon Jesus said;
" And Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of you" (Matt6: 28-29).
From these scriptures, glory is defined in terms of financial fortune. Therefore, when God says "And I will also glorify them and they shall not be small" it means that God will empower us for financial fortune as He multiplies us numerically.
Therefore, this season of multiplication, which is also the season of glorification, must be our season of empowerment for supernatural prosperity. The same way we are dazed about the ongoing multiplication wave, we shall be equally dazed with the divine prosperity wave that God has promised.
Remember, as I have said time and again; God is not a joker, He says what He means and He means what He says.
"For God is not a man that He should lie neither the son of man that He should repent"
We are about to begin to experience the reality of divine providence, Kingdom-order of prosperity and supernatural wealth after the order of Abraham. (Gen 24:1, Isaiah 51:1-3)
However, every story of financial fortune in scriptures is rooted in a great heart for God.
It is a heart for God that puts a believer in command of gold.
A heart for God leads to a boom, but a heart for gold leads to a gloom
A heart for God is the gateway to financial fortune, but a heart for gold hastens to the grave. (I Tim 6:10, Ps. 102:13-15)
Solomon loved the Lord and he gained command of gold (I King 3:3-13).
David was a man after God's own heart; he also had custody of financial fortune. I Chro 29:3-6)
Abraham so loved the Lord that he was called the friend of God; and he was also so wealthy that he had a private army. (Gen. 14: 14-19)
It should also be noted that prosperity is a vital tool for supernatural church growth.
"Cry yet, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; My cities through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad ..." (Zech 1:17)
This is why the testimony of changed lives is clearly a tool for drawing souls to Christ.
This is why I believe that God empower His people from financial fortune, so that He can use your financial fortune to draw many in to His Kingdom.
"Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you." (Zech. 8:23)
Furthermore, it is a known fact that prosperity attracts but poverty dispels. I therefore believe that in this year of multiplication God is also committed to our glorification, that is, the prosperity of His people, because glorification enhances multiplication.
Therefore, the prophetic focus for the month of May 2010 is
"THE BLESSINGS OF ABRAHAM ARE MINE "
- Galatians 3:13-14
The Recommended Books for the month authored by me include:
Understanding Financial Prosperity
Breaking Financial Hardship
Wining the war against poverty.
May I personally admonish that every literate member of the winners' family reads and re-read at least one of these recommended books this month with desperation: "Lord Jesus, show me what you have shown to your servant on the covenant of financial prosperity, so I can also experience the reality of kingdom prosperity in growing dimensions."
I therefore decree that the month of May 2010 shall surely be a landmark month for every one in Jesus name, amen and amen!
JESUS IS LORD!
Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ.
We are about stepping into the month of April; the resurrection month and may the power of His resurrection answer in all areas of concern for all Winners. Amen and Amen
Without Any doubt the month of March has been most fruitful month for us in this commission. ...
Here in Nigeria, we recorded 911 new churches planted from January till date ! This is a part from the amazing growth records in out various local assemblies both here in Nigeria and on the foreign field. Our God has ever kept His word again as every year always it its name.
To God alone be the glory!
We must always remember that we are children of destiny (Rom. 8:29-30). But faith is the proven master key for the fulfilment of destiny in the kingdom. (Lk 1:45). For it is to everyone according to his faith (Matt. 9:29)
We also discover that all testimonies are products of faith. This includes: Healing and deliverances, Victories and triumphs, Signs and wonders of all kinds. (Heb. 11:1-33, Matt 9:27-29, I John 5;4, Act 14:1-8, Mk 5:36-42 ). Above all, every prophetic agenda delivers on faith. (I Tim. 6:12 and 1:18-19)
Therefore, it is the engagement of faith that guarantees fulfilment of prophecies. This is why we shall be engaging the force of faith this month to enforce the delivery of our restoration portion both as individual and as a church family.
I believe that out of our camp shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry by the reason of outstanding testimonies in this new month! (Jer. 30:19)
Whatever has been termed dead around any individuals among us shall bounce back to life this month. Remember, Faith was all that was needed to restore the twelve years old daughter of the ruler of the synagogue back to life (Mk 5:36-42)
Therefore by the force of faith, whatever may have been shut up in the grave around any one's destiny must come forth this month. (John 11:40-44)
April 2010 shall be your own Restoration month. You shall no longer be found where you used to be, it shall be said of every Winner as it was said of Christ: "He's not here, for He's risen" (Matt 28: 5-6)
Therefore, the prophetic theme for the month of April 2010 is "ONLY BELIEVE" - Mk 5:36

EPISTLE FOR THE MONTH
AM A CHILD OF DESTINY (MARCH 2010)
Greetings in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Without any doubt we have experienced the eruption of signs and wonders all through the month of February, but the good news is that this is only the beginning.
For instance in the month of February we saw the largest church plan...ting endeavour in the history of this ministry till date with over 400 churches planted across the length and breadth of Nigeria in one month! To our God alone be all the glory.
But where is the Spirit of the Lord taking us to this month? We know that we serve a God of pre-ordination; a God of predestination, who always knows the end from the beginning. (Is. 46:9-10). We also understand from scriptures that everyone that is born again is in God's pre-ordination for salvation.
As it is written "For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified." -Rms. 8:29-30.
This is what qualifies every child of God to be called a child of destiny. In addition every child of God has a glorious destiny in Christ. (See also II Pet. 1:3). The question then is; why is not every believer living a glorious life?
As I have said over and again, every provision of scriptures has conditions to be met before they can be accessed! As free as salvation is, we must repent before we can be saved. (Acts 2:37-38) We also know that until faith is in place healing is not in view. (Matt. 9:27-29). So also a glorious destiny carries a cost for delivery. Just like that man asked Jesus? What shall I do to inherit eternal life? (Mk. 10:17).
There is what to do to inherit any of God's plan and purpose for one's life. Jesus gave him the answer and went further to show him the one barrier between him and his inheritance. He said "one thing thou lackest.........." (Mk 10:21). I pray that we shall all see whatever things may be standing between us and our glorious destiny this month in Jesus name.
As I have said earlier, salvation is a proof that you are a child of destiny. (Eph. 1:5, 11-12). But from the teaching of Jesus on the vine and the branches as recorded in John 15:1-16, we discover that the security of the destiny of any branch is in abiding in the vine.
However, consecration is a requirement for anyone to abide in God's presence. (Ps. 15:1-5, 24:3-4). Jesus was abiding in the love of the father because he did those things that pleased God always. (John 8:29).We must be committed to living a consecrated life if we must abide in the vine. (John 15:3)
Secondly, we must be fruit bearing, that is committed to winning the lost or we stand the risk of being cut off. (John 15:2). We are chosen to go forth and bring fruits and that our fruits should abide. (John 15:16).
Thirdly, to fulfill our glorious destiny we must be planted in the house of God under our own God-ordained shepherds. "Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God". -Ps. 92:13.
It is also written "And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.
And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land..."-Jer. 3:15-16. (See also Is. 30:20-21).
You are sure to fulfill destiny as you abide in your God appointed place of worship and under your God ordained pastor. (II Sam 7:10). This is why every truly abiding winner is a winning winner!!!.
With the application of these three factors here listed, everyone can fulfill his destiny in a grand style.
All these are non-negotiable factors in our quest to fulfill a glorious destiny. No one in the Winners family shall return without at least one soul brought into the kingdom this month. Some of us shall have a whole family follow us to know Jesus. It is indeed our harvest time in the Winners' family this month.
I believe that the Glory of God on our lives shall attract multitudes to Jesus. (Zech. 8:20-23). Therefore, the prophetic theme for the month of March 2010 is;
I am a child of destiny. (Rms. 8:29-30).
Recommended books for the month include:
Walking in the newness of life
Possessing your possession
All you need to have all your needs met
There shall be supernatural recovery and restoration of destinies this month in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and amen.
Jesus is Lord!
