Why is it that after many years of dealing some remain the same? Some individuals have a forceful will; some have strong emotions; and others have a strong mind. Since the Lord is able to break these, why is it that after many years some are still unchanged? We believe there are two main reasons.

First, many who live in darkness are not seeing the hand of God. While God is working, while God is breaking , they do not recognize it as being from Him. They are devoid of light, seeing only men opposing them. They imagine their environment is just too difficult, that circumstances are to blame. So they continue in darkness and despair. May God give us a revelation to see what is from His hand, that we may kneel down and say to Him, “It is Thou; since it is Thou, I will accept.” At least we must recognize whose hand it is that deals with us. It is not a human hand, nor our families, not the brothers’ and sisters’ in the church, but God’s. We need to learn how to kneel down and kiss the hand, love the hand that deals with us. We must have this light to see that whatever the Lord has done, we accept and believe; the Lord can do no wrong. Second, another great hindrance to the work of breaking the outer man is self-love. We must ask God to take away the heart of self-love. As He deals with us in response to our prayer, we should worship and say, “O Lord, if this be Thy hand, let me accept it from my heart.

“The cup which the Father has given me, shall I not drink it?” will not drink the cup of vinegar mingled with gall. They can only drink of one cup, not two. Such as these are without any self-love. Self-love is a basic difficulty. May the Lord speak to us today that we may be able to pray: “O my God, I have seen that all things come from thee. All my ways these five years, ten years, or twenty years, are of Thee. Thou hast so worked to attain Thy purpose, which is none other than that Thy life may be lived out through me. But I have been foolish. I did not see. I did many things to deliver myself, thus delaying Thy time. Today I see Thy hand. I am willing to offer myself to Thee. Once again I place myself in Thy hands.”

There is no one more beautiful than one who is broken! Stubbornness and self-love give way to beauty in one who has been broken by God. We see Jacob in the Old Testament, how even in his mother’s womb he struggled with his brother. He was subtle, tricky, and deceitful. Yet his life was full of sorrows and grief. When a youth, he fled from home. For twenty years he was cheated by Laban. The wife of his heart’s love, Rachel, died prematurely. The son of his love, Joseph, was sold. Years later Benjamin was detained in Egypt. He was successively dealt with by God, meeting misfortune after misfortune. He was stricken by God once, twice; indeed, his whole history could be said to be a history of being stricken by God.

Finally after many such dealings, the man Jacob was transformed. In his last few years, he was quite transparent. How dignified was his answer to Pharaoh! How beautiful was his end, when he worshipped God on his staff! How clear were his blessings to his descendants! After reading the last page of his history, we want to bow our heads and worship God. Here is one who is matured, who knows God. Several decades of dealings have resulted in Jacob’s outward man being broken. In his old age, the picture is a beautiful one ………( Excerpts  from ‘The Release of the Spirit’ ….by Watchman Nee ) 


Last year I had a vision of the operation and network of Hell. In the vision, I was taken to the strategy (war) room of hell. I saw the devil seated at an Oval table. He was dressed very expensively (leather shinny shoes, gold chain etc) he was surrounded by his princes and in and among the princes were humans. In the dream I understood that they had been summoned to come for a ‘red alert council meeting’. The meeting had been convened because they were in a crises situation. The crises situation was that a contingent of Christians, were coming from Nigeria and other parts of the world and going into central and other parts of Africa in a campaign against hell and  they were aware of the damage that the move was creating. They were trying to determine what they could do to stop them. One of the most interesting things about the situation was that there were stacks of files and folders and each of the folders had information about governments, countries, people, they had details about the most intricate things about everyone’s life and the operation of government and economies.

(Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.) I was aware that the information was not in paper form; it was being distributed electronically, it was like as each spirit or person that was at the table begins to speak about a certain country or people, all the information was received by others at the table instantly. The information being passed was about the concerned peoples’ weaknesses, their personal likes, dislikes, their habits and desires even down to their preferred perfumes, clothes, styles, and colors etc .They had information about everything; they did not have it just on one generation but they had information running through several generations.


At the end of the table in a pile all by itself, was a stack of files (as if separated from the others). I was a little surprised when I found out that the files were the files of all the people who were working to achieve the objective of becoming sons of God. They had all the information about you over several generations. They knew what had been covered by the blood of Jesus, what had not been covered. They had the details of the weakness of your flesh; they knew what buttons to press, when to press them and how to press them, and they were discussing those issues. They were discussing what they could do to stop the havoc that was being created within the realm of the spirit with the ministration of the word that was going out in that time frame, when I came out of the vision.


While I was there, I got the news that a well known man of God was killed in a ghastly motor accident. His car left his side of the road, went across to the other lane and ran into a drunken trailer driver’s truck. It was a head on collusion. No man of God ought to die that way, no man of God should die like he died. This man was called as a prophet to the end time church. I believe this man’s death was retaliation by the devil and his cohorts against the onslaught against hell by the word of God that is being brought here in Africa. Several years ago, brother son more and some others tried to get to this man with this message of sonship, unfortunately he wrote us off. Just before then he had gotten involved with a group of people who called themselves ‘sons of God’ but were not even Christians, so by the time he meet us, his heart was already hardened against the word, because of his previous experience. However his rejection of the word did not divorce him from the position or his place as far as God was concerned.

(Ro11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.). In his last few ministries he had begun to put his finger on the sin that was in the ecumenical system; therefore he became a target.



This may sound a little presumptuous to you but what happened to that man of God was a warning to me as a person. The devil does not want the prophetic ministry in the body. Because this ministry digs down to the nitty gritty of our personal lives. It touches the things that we do not want touched. It exposes the things that we do not want uncovered. The devil wants to pull the ‘eyes’ of the body out, just as he blinded Samson (Jg 16:21) and put him to grinding corn. He put him into the church, getting him involved in church things/ business, grinding corn for the philistines.  Grinding corn (having church) for the sake of the devil (philistines).

You know what? The devil got into church a long time ago and the devil is now in the holy place church.  We have a word that says ‘ COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE, COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE’( Re 18:4). REPENT! REPENT! Are you daring and desirous enough to ask God, to search you just, like David did? David said ‘Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:  And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. (Ps 139:23,24 ). The book of Jeremiah tells us “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it(Jer 17.9).

We do not know our own hearts. We think our hearts are good, we think our hearts are loving God until we find out something in our heart, some aspects of our humanity that God has not yet exposed. Some hatred, some bigotry, some murderous thoughts, and some disposition of manner or character that is totally inconsistent with God.


Paul said I bring my body into subjection. ( by an act of his will, not by an act of circumstances).  He brought his body under subjection when he appealed to Caesar.  Festus said to him Paul, had you not appealed to Cesar we could have released you. (Acts 26:32 Then said Agrippa unto Festus, This man might have been set at liberty, if he had not appealed unto Caesar). Did you think Paul did not know the law?  Do you think Paul thought that Caesar was going to justify him?  Remember the prophesy of Agabus.  Ac 21:10 And as we tarried there many days, there came down from Judaea a certain prophet, named Agabus.  And when he was come unto us, he took Paul’s girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.

The brethren tried to dissuade Paul, but PAUL REFUSED, he said he will not be dissuaded but he was determined to fulfill the obligation of submission that was to be the portion of his release. HALLELUIAH!


Know this brethren; there is nothing, nothing that God is not going to touch

Heb 12: 25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: V26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.

V 27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.

V 28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear .V 29 For our God is a consuming fire.

There was a word that the Lord brought to me. God gave me this word in 2009. He said. He was going to shake the heavens and the earth. There has been a validation of the shaking of the earth as we see all the earthquakes and floods and other cataclysmic events that have taken place in recent times. The shaking of heavens is especially pertinent to this body of people ( i.e us).

I remember that it was 2009 Bro duCille went home to be with the Lord and as that happened; I can say all hell broke loose in our midst .As I see these events come to pass ,I think the Lord will have me share with you the vision I had 4/5 years ago.

  • The Vision: We were meeting in a room, Bro and sis duCille were standing at the back of the congregation. They were fully dressed with their warm coats and hats. As the meeting progressed, Sister Mavis walked around looking at different people, she then walked straight across, moving toward the back of the congregation and then she stepped out of the door. Bro duCille hesitated, stood around for a moment; it was like he was saying goodbye. He took one last look and then he stepped out of the door, the door closed behind him. Immediately he stepped out of the door, pandemonium broke out in the room, everybody was rushing to the pulpit, people were knocking others down and fighting in their bid to get to the pulpit (the place of preeminence).

I think dream is pertinent now because of the events we see happening now amongst us. THE SCRIPTURES SAY WE SHOULD EXAMINE OURSELVES. GOD BLESS YOU.


Ps 26:2 Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

2 Co 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
