epikaizo anointing

Epikaizo (overshadow) is a Hebrew word used in the Bible to talk of the highest manifestation of God’s power. This is when God’s presence overwhelms (overshadows, overtakes) man and causes the physical faculties of man to lose their earthly essence and take upon the form of the Spirit. This is when the natural is quickened by the concentration of God’s power to materialize into the supernatural.

Moses experienced the Epikaizo when he spent 40 days 40 nights on the mountain.

The reason why God relates to Abraham and Moses (epikaizo) in that regard is simply because God cannot renege on His Word. God’s Word is that He has given man authority in the Earth, therefore God has to have Abraham’s approval beforehand.

What can I do to experience Epikaizo?


The key to Epikaizo is Revelation – Go for the Word!

1 Peter 1:13

‘‘Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;’’

King James Version

Whether you are meditating more in His word, studying to know Him more personally, praying in other tongues, associating with those in the Epikaizo experience, confessing the promises of God or fasting and prayer, the master key is revelation. Revelation gives birth to a relationship and relationship gives birth to experience.

When Abraham saw God as Jehovah Jireh in that He believed that even if he offered Isaac as a burnt sacrifice, God was faithful and able to bring Him back to life, that is provide another Isaac, God manifested Himself Him as Jireh (the Lord, My provider).

So, if you see God as the healer, you will know Him as the healer; if you see Him as the sanctifier, you will experience Him as the sanctifier.

Be transformed by the renewal of your mind!

Romans 12:2

‘‘And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.’’

Ephesians 3:9

‘‘And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: ‘’

Colosians 1:27

‘‘26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: 27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:’’

 King James Version

God’s glory put simply, is the revelation of his nature and attributes. When you grasp the revelation of Christ by consistently growing in your knowledge of the person and principles of Christ, Epikaizo becomes a by-product of your fellowship with the Lord.

To communion or fellowship with the Lord means to come into common union with Christ; to share everything mutually to the point where it becomes difficult to distinguish between you and God. It is a level of mutual exchange where God takes more of your weaknesses and gives you more of His strength; where He takes away your sinfulness and freely gives you His righteousness because of His eternal and unconditional love for you. In other words, this is the working of grace (mercy and unmerited favor) in a man where all that is of the sinful nature of man, be it sin, frailties or whatever (past, present and future) are checked into Christ’s account and all that belongs to Christ is checked into your account.1 John 1:3-7

‘‘ 3That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.’’
King James Version

The main purpose of salvation is for every believer to come into fellowship with God through His Son Jesus Christ. What a privilege?
1 Cor 1:9
‘‘God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.’’

John 1:9-13 – Receiving Jesus

John 1:9-13 – Receiving Jesus

John 1:9-13 – Receiving Jesus

John 1:9-13 – Receiving Jesus

John 1:9-13 HCSB The true light, who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. (10) He was in the world, and the world was created through Him, yet the world did not recognize Him. (11) He came to His own, and His own people did not receive Him. (12) But to all who did receive Him, He gave them the right to be children of God, to those who believe in His name, (13) who were born, not of blood, or of the will of the flesh, or of the will of man, but of God.

The fallen world order does not acknowledge or receive Christ and the New Testament, and particularly Paul gives us a variety of reasons such as: own fleshly inclinations, wrong teaching, our fallen nature, the Devil’s blinding of the heart, Jewish legalism, cultural and spiritual strongholds, and human ignorance, pride and folly. I have listed some verses on this topic below:



Romans 8:7 HCSB For the mind-set of the flesh is hostile to God because it does not submit itself to God’s law, for it is unable to do so.


1 Corinthians 1:18-25 HCSB (18) For to those who are perishing the message of the cross is foolishness, but to us who are being saved it is God’s power.

1 Corinthians 2:14 HCSB (14) But the natural man does not welcome what comes from God’s Spirit, because it is foolishness to him; he is not able to know it since it is evaluated spiritually.


2 Corinthians 3:14 HCSB (14) But their minds were closed. For to this day, at the reading of the old covenant, the same veil remains; it is not lifted, because it is set-aside only in Christ.


2 Corinthians 4:3-4 HCSB (3) But if, in fact, our gospel is veiled; it is veiled to those who are perishing. (4) Regarding them: the god of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelievers so they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

2 Corinthians 10:4-5 HCSB (4) since the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but are powerful through God for the demolition of strongholds. We demolish arguments (5) and every high-minded thing that is raised up against the knowledge of God, taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.


Ephesians 2:1-3 HCSB And you were dead in your trespasses and sins (2) in which you previously walked according to this worldly age, according to the ruler of the atmospheric domain, the spirit now working in the disobedient. (3) We too all previously lived among them in our fleshly desires, carrying out the inclinations of our flesh and thoughts, and by nature we were children under wrath, as the others were also.


Ephesians 4:17-18 HCSB Therefore, I say this and testify in the Lord: You should no longer walk as the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their thoughts. (18) They are darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them and because of the hardness of their hearts.


Colossians 1:21 HCSB And you were once alienated and hostile in mind because of your evil actions.

This is a convincing enough lists of verses – some folks are perishing in stubborn unbelief and spiritual blindness. Such people need a lot of patient prayer and witnessing if they ever are to believe. I was an anti-Christian atheist prior to being saved and many thought I could not be saved – but nevertheless God “got me”.

Yet we need to put an end to Pollyanna views such as: “If we just preach the gospel everyone will believe.” If Jesus Himself could not get everyone to believe, even with all the miracles He performed and His wisdom, love and grace – then we need to accept that this is “something fundamental” in humanity. In fact there are almost two types of people “those who are perishing” and “those who are being saved” and it is seems that it is with difficulty that many of those who are perishing find Christ.

One reason that the world does not acknowledge Christ because the “ruler of this world” is the Devil (1 John 5:18,19) and he has absolutely zero intention of letting this world be released into the freedom of the sons of God. (Romans 8:19-25)

Therefore intercession and spiritual warfare must precede evangelism if the Devil’s grip on fallen humanity is to be broken. Much prevailing prayer has preceded every great revival – (see Dr. Stewart Robinson’s excellent review article Praying the Price of Revival http://aibi.gospelcom.net/prayer/payprice.htm) and here is a link on Prayer Evangelism: http://aibi.gospelcom.net/articles/prayer_evangelism.htm

The natural human mind is not a level playing field. It does not naturally think the thoughts that accompany salvation. It rushes into folly and gossip and pornography and tabloid rubbish and totally ignores, ridicules and dismisses the deep things of God.

Humanism, which almost deifies the natural human intellect, is without a good explanation for the lust, cruelty, evil, folly, and madness of humanity. Humanism can never properly explain Auschwitz or Rwanda or the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

The world did not acknowledge Jesus, His own received Him not, yet some did believe and He gave them the power to become sons of God. That is the power to be eternal beings of great glory and authority.

The basis of this sonship is being “born of God”, that is a spiritual birth that comes from God, not a literal or physical birth from mankind or the human will (see John 3:1-18). In the new birth we are born as eternal spiritual beings, who are citizens of Heaven (Ephesians 2:19, Philippians 3:20), and are seated with Christ in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 2:6, 1:20).

The world can give us all sorts of other powers – the power to earn money or the power to be famous or the power to rule nations, but only Jesus Christ can give us the eternal and holy power that will last forever, the power to become a son of God.

John 1:6-8 – John The Baptist

John 1:6-8 – John The Baptist
John the Baptist

John 1:6-8 – John The Baptist

John 1:6-8 HCSB There was a man named John who was sent from God. (7) He came as a witness to testify about the light, so that all might believe through him. (8) He was not the light, but he came to testify about the light.


If you have been watching the news about Iraq recently you may have heard about the persecution of the Mandeans – modern-day followers of John the Baptist. In fact in the first century John the Baptist got such a large following among Jews and other folk in the Middle East that quite a bit of the New Testament is spent explaining the connection between the two cousins – John and Jesus. In Acts 19 Paul has to explain the gospel more fully to a group of John’s disciples in Ephesus as the changeover from following John to following Jesus was not as automatic as we may think.

In Matthew 11:11-13 Jesus says that His cousin John was the culmination of the Law and the Prophets and the “greatest of those born of women”. Yet John, despite his greatness “was not the light”, but rather, like all the prophets of old, John ‘bore witness to the Light”. John “prepared the way of the Lord” by helping Jews take the necessary steps of faith so they could be ready to hear the message of Jesus.

“There was a man named John who was sent from God.” Those “sent by God” are apostles (that is what the word apostle means). Apostles are not sent from a nation as an ambassador, or from a company as a representative but directly from God so as to speak on His behalf.


Those sent from God are sent with a particular message to a particular people – just as Jonah was sent to Nineveh with the commission to warn them of impending judgment. Thus John the Baptist was sent to the desert of Judea with the message “repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand” and a purpose “to be the voice crying in the wilderness prepare ye the way of the Lord.”

John thus prepared the way for Jesus by calling the Jewish people to repentance, so Jesus could call them to faith in Him. The New Testament makes clear that we cannot have biblical faith apart from moral regeneration. The faith of the positive thinkers is not enough. New Testament faith has a direction and that direction is into God, and into His nature.

We cannot remain in sin and truly believe in Jesus, because if we truly believe what Jesus said we will believe what He said about sin and righteousness and repentance.

Believing in Jesus is not just believing that He exists, or that He is loving and nice, or even that He is God, it is also believing what He said and thus obeying His commandments. If Jesus says “do not lay up treasure on earth’ (Matthew 6:19) and we do so then we are not believing what He said.


Believing in Jesus requires stern moral commitment. It is more than a warmed heart; it is a morally changed life. John came as a preacher of righteousness and moral regeneration so that people could be convicted of their sin and turn to God for mercy and a new life in Christ.

The modern debate on grace is often misconstrued. Grace is not God excusing you from all sorts of abhorrent moral behavior, nor is it a free pass into heaven for the unrepentant. Grace is given to make us holy. Grace calls us from wickedness to repentance, grace reveals the way from repentance to faith in Christ, grace grows us from initial faith to deeper sanctification and grace frees and transforms us along the path from sanctification to ultimate glorification.

Grace gives people the chance to become like Jesus. Grace makes the highway of holiness one that is free from condemnation so that we have the courage to travel along it. Grace is not the same as freedom from condemnation, which is only part of the story. We don’t sit down in the road saying: “Wow, I am free from condemnation.” The idea is to keep moving toward Christ-likeness.

It is much easier to tell a convicted and repentant sinner about Jesus, than a complacent and self-satisfied person who is uncaring of the state of his or her soul. So John came to stir people up so that they would care about their souls and seek God.


John came “so that all might believe through him.” He was a prophet who had as his objective – that others would believe in Jesus. Our ministries should be the same – pointing always to the Savior.

“He was not the light, but he came to testify about the light.” No matter how great our intelligence or insight or calling we are not the Light. Only Jesus is the light. Sometimes we make a preacher or teacher or founder of an organization or denomination another “light”. That is wrong, they may give witness to the light, but they are not the light. You can disagree with me and still be wonderfully saved, but you cannot disagree with Jesus and be saved. Jesus is the Truth and I and all other ministers of the gospel merely point to Him.

The Mandeans need Jesus. They need the Light. No man born of woman can guide us. Only Jesus is the Light of our lives.

Miracle Money

Miracle Money – How to receive miracles

Miracle Money – How to receive miracles

Miracle Money is a vital topic that is recurrent in Christianity and a largely misunderstood one for that matter. This article is however not written to create another arguement on Miracle Money – there are too many already. But note that your level of understanding of any biblical concept determines your experience. I believe in seeing a cup as half full rather than half empty. Hence, the scripture says, ”with God, ALL THINGS are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)

New: 7 Gross Misconceptions About Money.

Miracle Money then is very much possible. My prayer is that your faith will be stirred and released to produce miracles in every area of your life and not just miracle money as you go through this article.

Miracle Money

Many questions often come to my mind when I see people bluntly refuseing to believe in the possibilities of God – the God who made Elizabeth who was called barren fruitful; who made barren Sarah the mother of many nations and the list continues. Why is it so easy for you to believe that Philip and John disappeared and appeared elsewhere in the Bible than it is to believe that God can cause money to appaer in your bank account if He wills so? Why do men condition God and determine the way He oughts to act?

There are many instances of miracle money in the Bible besides those of Elisha and Elijah with the two women but I will like to focus on Jesus Christ taking into consideration the present dispensation of grace (in case you are reading this before the rapture).

The Coin in the Fish’s Mouth

A glaring instant of miracle money is the apparition of the coin in the fish’s mouth.

You need to truly understand why God may choose to perform miracle money.

The miracle of the coin found in the fish’s mouth (miracle money) (Matthew 17:24-27) may be among the least dramatic of Christ’s miracles, but it is certainly instructive. The context involves the paying of the Temple tax, and not surprisingly, only Matthew, the former tax collector for Rome, reports it. Although he did not collect this particular tax, it still interested him. His account of Christ’s life tends to highlight the King and His Kingdom. Why, then, should the King be subject to a tax? Is He not the Son of God, the Heir of all His Father’s house?

Coming to Capernaum, the tax collector asks Simon Peter, “Does your Teacher not pay the temple tax?” and Peter replies in the affirmative (verses 24-25). This tax was not a Roman civil tax but a religious one supporting the Temple in Jerusalem. God inaugurated this tax in the wilderness, instructing Moses to take a half shekel from every male twenty years and older (Exodus 30:11-16). It provided for the work of the Tabernacle and later of the Temple, including during the time of Christ. This tax was not an evil one per se, helping to cover legitimate costs of the worship of God, but as with almost all taxation, the money was often misused.

1. Does Peter err in how he answers? Matthew 17:25, 27.


Peter appears concerned that Jesus would not be esteemed a good Jew if He did not pay the tax. Not wanting to bring dishonor and danger on Him, he acknowledges Jesus’ liability to pay the taxes as if He were a mere son of Israel. His reply implies that Jesus had paid the tax and would continue to do as every devout Jew should. When Peter enters the house, Jesus immediately asks him about taxation: “From whom do the kings of the earth take customs or taxes, from their sons or from strangers?” This demonstration of Christ’s knowing what Peter had discussed elsewhere proves to the disciple that His divine omniscience is not limited by distance.

Peter answers the question with the only possible answer, “From strangers,” and Jesus replies, “Then the sons are free.” He refers to Peter and Himself as both sons of the Father, the Sovereign of the Temple, and therefore, free from the tax. However, rather than cause offense, Jesus arranges for the money to be found in a most miraculous way.

Technically, Peter errs about the legality of taxing the Son of God, but Jesus uses the principle of not needlessly offending a brother (Luke 17:1-2) to positively express His divinity and spiritual power: He performs miracle money miracle. Christ is so considerate that He would rather pay any amount, however unjust or objectionable, than endanger God’s work by unnecessarily provoking negative comments that would hurt its credibility, saying, “lest we offend them” (Matthew 17:27). His example should inspire us for when we feel slighted or taken advantage of (Romans 14:21-22).

2. How much control over the situation does Christ demonstrate? How precise is this miracle? Matthew 17:27.


Jesus’ miracle of miracle money consists, not only in His omniscience—knowing that the fish would yield the necessary money—but also in the fact that the first fish that took Peter’s hook contained the precise sum required. The purpose and pleasure of Christ’s will—which all creation obeys—guided that single fish out of multiple schools in the lake to Peter’s hook. Christ, the Lord of Creation, controls all things, even the sea’s fish and the earth’s silver.

In describing Christ as the Word, the apostle John writes, “All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made” (John 1:3). Paul confirms this in Colossians 1:16, “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.”

Using His spiritual power, He makes a fish produce the exact amount of silver coin to pay the Temple dues. This miracle reminds the disciples that He is indeed the omnipotent Son of God who controls all creation.

God can perform miracle money in your life as a way to show you that He is your Provider – that He cares for you. He could also perform miracle money to lift up your faith.

3. How carefully conceived is this miracle of miracle money? How does Jesus view His relationship with His disciples? Matthew 17:24, 27.


The Greek word behind “tax” (NKJV) or “tribute” (KJV) in verse 24 is didrachma, equivalent to the Jewish “half-shekel,” the Temple rate paid by every male Israelite above age twenty. Those responsible for collecting these half-shekels came to Peter. Unlike tolls, which were duties on goods, the Temple tax was levied on individual Israelites. The collected money, paid into the Temple treasury, defrayed the cost of Temple services. The Jews were much more willing to accept this collection than to pay the despised publicans who extracted taxes for Rome.

The miracle’s preciseness is seen in the coin found in the fish’s mouth, a full shekel (two didrachmas)—half a shekel each for Christ and Peter (“for Me and you”; verse 27)—the exact amount to satisfy the requirement. In this way, Jesus puts Himself alongside Peter as sharing His position and relationship as a son of the Kingdom. All true Christians fill this amazing position: They are no longer servants, but sons in Christ (Galatians 3:26). With His brethren Jesus shares His family relationship to His Father (John 20:17).

This account contains two principles. The first is doctrinal, teaching Jesus’ place in God’s Kingdom as the rightful Son. The second is moral, showing that greatness in the Kingdom derives from service and humility. Jesus’ phrase, “lest we offend them,” should motivate us to employ meekness and wisdom.


I hope this message on miracle money has lifhted up your faith. I f so, comment below. Tell us your experience. My team and I are praying for you. May you not just experience the miracles of God like miracle money but may you come to know God more in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.

To know more of God’s power and ability, read my message on epikaizo and rayon.

The Rayon Anointing – The Anointing that destroys the yoke of stagnation and delay.

ECG Church Gathering

The Rayon Anointing – The Anointing that destroys the yoke of stagnation and delay.

The Rayon Anointing

Rayon Anointing is mental conception, grasp, thoughts and visualization. When your thoughts change, the quality of your life changes too. The Rayon Anointing is said to be in action when the Spirit-led believer’s imagination, thinking, mental pictures materialise and become reality by faith.

Rayon Anointing
Rayon Anointing

This Rayon anointing makes you visualize things that you need to possess in your life. Your thinking helps your imagination that creates visions and form dreams.

You must see beyond in life from where you are. See yourself blessed, see yourself loaded, see yourself victorious and not the victim of life. Rayon anointing breaks all the limitations placed upon your life because thoughts are things and your vision is the boundary of your blessings.

Think it, See it , Dream it and Possess it.

Refuse to think negatively over your life but positively. The grace of God is released on good thoughts . Think big and dream big to get out of stagnation. All the people that achieved big things in life just thought differently. You must tap into the power of concentration and release the unused resources that God has placed in you. Let your mind concentrate on one thing at a time.

The Rayon Anointing Establishes You


Rayon will cause you to reign in life. Even Cain in scripture built a city, Jubal invented musical instruments, Jacob’s operation in the Rayon enabled him to outsmart his enemies and competitors including his boss Laban, etc. The Rayon Anointing makes you to be constructive in life, innovative and inventive. Its time for you to think quality thoughts of your life and see great things.

Abraham was told to come out of the tent to count the stars. His imaginative ability determined his accomplishment. God said as he sees so shall his children be like stars. Abraham was stuck in his Tent complaining of being childless. But God made him see a big picture of the stars. God made Jeremiah come out of ministry of stagnation by asking him, Jeremiah what seest thou?

I declare Rayon anointing over your life by the power of the Holy Spirit. You have the mind of Christ therefore think big and out of the box. See yourself blessed in life.
