TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL (Sunday 11th July 2021)

“Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.”

“It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so He gives His beloved sleep.” Psalms 127:1-2 NKJV


The Season one of our mountain experience ended on a very good note today. Glory be to God for His marvelous deeds. The intensity of the word and flow of the Spirit tells how one major thing; God is up to something’

Warriors are being raise for the end time battles for the lost. The walls of deceit and sorcery will not be able to stop them. The python spirit that is using so many will be brought them by the fragrance of the glory of the LORD they will carry. Indeed, the declaration of war Jesus made in Matthew 16:18 will be accurately executed. It will not be by might or power, but by the Spirit of the LORD.

Jesus said;

“And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it (Matthew 16:18 NKJV)”

This declaration has been executed in every generation of believers.

In every generation you will always find God retiring the Saul leaders and raising a Davidic crop of spiritual leaders to take over from them, then use them in stopping the gates of hell. Our generation is experiencing its own season of this type of transition. It is happening already.

When we fully get there, the stench in the present Church will be erased completely. The gates of hell we call spiritual leaders that have held sway before now, will be neutralized. They will no longer be able to prevail against the eternal purpose of God for the People of GOD.

These Davidic crop of spiritual leaders will comprise of the Josiah generation, the generation of the young prophet form Judah, the Joseph generation, the Joshua generation and other generational types designed to emerged as part of God end time army.


They will be given uncommon keys of the kingdom to be able to sense what the watchers in Heaven has bound and bound it on earth and what they have loosed to loose on earth. It is going to be dimension that have eyes has not seen, ears heard or hearts conceived. To these crop of fresh leaders God will says again, like He said to Peter;

“And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:18-19 NKJV”

When you hold the keys of the kingdom of heaven on earth, every other kingdom will have no choice but to listen to you! That is how you subdue kingdoms.

These crop of spiritual leaders will be able to subdue kingdoms for the purpose of working righteousness on earth, obtaining promises, stopping the mouths of Lions, quenching the violence of fire, becoming valiant in battle and etc. God will give these leaders uncommon keys so that whoever follows them will have uncommon key as well.

Don’t forget, God use men to reach men. He uses men He has reached to reach men He has not reached. He will use men He has taught on the mountains of His glory and truth to reach men waiting for them in the valley of decision. That is why the Bible says;

“And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,

for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;

that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting. Ephesians 4:11-14 NKJV

So many in the body of Christ today are keyless in the spirit, that is why they do no exercise dominion over evil works. They are keyless because of the plague of Saul spiritual leaders.


The doctrines are taking the keys of authority from their hands and putting unclean spirits in their lives; spirits that masquerades as the Holy Spirit. You will never have the keys of the kingdoms when you are sitting under a keyless spiritual leader.

Friend, God is passing through His prophetic reserves in our generation called the remnant; people who still have their garments as white as snow. He is passing among them to raise Himself an army of apostolic warriors who will execute His end time redemptive plans in herald of the return of the LORD.

What God does in the now is usually activated by what He says in the now. The now sayings of the LORD and now doing of the LORD are usually attached. They work together. In seasons like this, it is important that we surrender to the LORD and allow Him to build our lives.

Our Devotional text says,

“Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so He gives His beloved sleep.”

There is so much we can chew there. The first thing you must understand is that if the LORD is not the one building your life, nothing about your life will be pleasant. Your Life will become full of toiling and pain if you become its maker and builder.

There are a lot of people who wakes up very early in the morning and returns back late in the night just to make ends that will never meet structurally to meet. That is not the plan of God for our lives. God never designed life to be led that way. The Bible says it is vain for us to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so He gives His beloved sleep.


God support hard work; where you wake up early and sleep late sometimes because of workload. But He is against toiling.

Come to think of it, why do people toil and suffer in life? Why are people going through so much in life? Is it because of the curses in their father’s houses? Voices crying against them from their villages or what? Is it because they do not tithe or sacrificially give? Most do!

I was one who toil in life so I know may be of help to some of us. But the question still is, why do people suffer and toil and go through so much in this life? The reason is simple; they try to do on earth what God has not done in Heaven. I have shared before that any life that is made in heaven can easily be assembled on earth. But anyone that has not be made and finished in the Heaven cannot be made on earth.

Trying to assemble what God has not made in Heaven is the reason for toiling and suffering among men. That was why Jesus did not do anything that He did not see the Father finish in the Spirit’s realm. He knows it will be total failure to lead a life that Heaven has not revealed to Him to lead on earth. He said in His word,

“Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.

For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel.” John 5:19-22 NKJV

I have just given you the keys to sweat less living on earth!

What is God saying to you this morning? Are you suffering? Before you call on people to pray for you, check who is the source of the life you are living?

Have you been a god to yourself, taking decisions, initiating things, and doing things that you have not seen the Father do? If the answer to all these is yes, then it’s time to retrace your steps. It is time to become so synchronized in the Spirit like Jesus was.

It’s time to start spending your days based on revealed paths and programs of God for your life. It’s time to begin to move in the scroll of the books and doing only things that are written of you.

It’s my prayer that God will use these words to further build you up this morning and give you an inheritance among they that are sanctified! AMEN


“Sacrifice and offering You did not desire; My ears You have opened. Burnt offering and sin offering You did not require.

Then I said, “Behold, I come; In the scroll of the book it is written of me.

I delight to do Your will, O my God, and Your law is within my heart.” Psalms 40:6-8 NKJV
