SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: 2 KINGS 2:8
Greetings family; we had a wonderful weekend of International Visitors Program (IVP). People came to IVP from all parts of the world with their gods, but they left with God of our father, Pastor Alph Lukau. The power of God was present to heal them. People who were bound on wheelchairs for years were set free. Instant healing miracles took place, and people were marveled at the mighty move of the living God in our midst. The God of our father (Pastor Alph Lukau) is the God of impossibilities.
The Man of God (Pst Alph Lukau) said God is saying “I brought you this far; I will do it again; no mountain is too high for me.” “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God….” Your healing is wrapped in the Word of God. Your time has arrived; in this time God is doing a new thing in your life. God is the only one who is able to transform lives.
Regarding the above scripture, this was a cry of a man who wanted to become the continuity of the covenant of God. The bible speaks of the man called Elijah, who was a prophet of fire. He had such a deep relationship with God that his entire ministry was defined by it. The bible says he was a Tishbite. May you not be remembered by what you have but by your walk with God. What matters was his relationship with God. Throughout his ministry we see God. He challenged the prophets of Baal and Asherah. When he did this, the whole Israel stood with Baal, but it is good that sometimes you stand alone. To be different is not a bad thing. You will not be able to make a difference if you are scared to be different. Beloved, you are born differently. Elijah remained alone as people gathered together. One man with God is majority!!! Probably you think you are alone, but the fact that you are with God, you are majority.
May your enemies / mockers hear this! Those who are gathering against you must hear this; no weapon formed against you shall prosper. The prophets of Baal gathered together and did all kinds of incantations with Israel supporting them. Elijah was alone, but God was with him. Child of God, you are never alone. “Though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, you will fear no evil….” You have a friend who is holding you by hand, when you go to bed, to the bathroom, to the shopping mall, or even when you are driving, he is with you. There is no moment when you are alone. The name of your God is Emmanuel, meaning “God with us.” Do not allow them to scare or bully you. You are bigger than them. God will see you through, and he will lift you up. May this word be established in your life.
Elijah allowed them to call on their God, he gave them ample time to do this but their God did not answer. They were calling on the god who has no ears, eyes or hands to touch. Elijah said, move out, and let me show you what a true God can do. Where are men and women who have built their faith in God and are able to confront the enemy and say “where is your God?” When all this is over, I shall be the last man standing. It is audacity of faith. When everyone thinks you are defeated, you pull yourself together, put on your make up and walk majestically. Your strength comes from your altar. Your first priority should be your altar; it is your point of covenant between you and God.
Elijah began by building the altar. Once he had finished, he began to pray a simple prayer saying, “oh God let it be known that you are God….” As he finished his prayer, the fire came down and licked up the water. There are levels of glory, yesterday we spoke of Shekinah glory, which is the manifested presence of God. Something will manifest in your life in this season. This time, the glory that covered that place was the gaboth glory of God which is not just the glory, but the weight of God. What is about to be deposited in you is bigger than what you can handle. That is why God has enlarged you, something bigger than what you have been expecting is coming to you. Fire came down and Israel, as if they were orchestra, all kneeled down and said “the Lord is God.” From today no one will doubt your God again. God is about to astonish the world with you. What he is about to do will not come from your efforts. When this happened, there was a man admiring Elijah, his name is Elisha. Do not depart from what is working. Elisha said where you go, I will go, so Elijah said “what do you want?” There are people who are purpose driven, they have a high level of faith, and their goals are high.
Elisha said “I want you to give me what you do not have,” i.e. double of your anointing. I have seen the God of Elijah, but I want more. Elijah said, you have asked something difficult. Family, you should learn to ask difficult things, don’t just ask for ordinary car, ask for Range Rover, Rolls Royce, Bugatti, etc. May God answer your prayers. You have only one life, eat, drive, and dress well. Live for yourself, don’t live for people. The bible says in heaven we will walk on roads paved with gold. It is ok to live well. Ask for nations, stop asking for rent money. Elijah said, “if you see me go, you will get it.” You cannot receive from the person you are not loyal to. When he is going through situations in his life be there for him. You must participate in his life. Elisha was there when his spiritual father was taken, and his mantle fell on him. Now it was time to continue with the journey, and as he came across resistance, he took the mantle of his father and said “where is the Lord of Elijah?” When you have tried it all and nothing seems to be working, call upon the God of your father. A miracle took place because what he carried came from his spiritual father. Calling on the God of your spiritual father is not wrong, it is spiritually correct. Where is the God of my father (Pst Alph Lukau), show up in my life, manifest your goodness and power in my life in Jesus Name.
