Prophetess Choice Nwachuku Ph.D elcome to INSPIRATION magazine, a quarterly online publication of God’s Battle Axe Ministries. Inspiration has within the riches of its pages a wealth of information in different sections called corners that is set to minister to your body, soul and spirit. It has the marriage, leadership, praise and worship, youth, children, and women’s corners. Each corner focuses on the subject matter, except Odette’s corner which is not focused on a particular subject. Although the goal of Inspiration is to minister to your body, soul and spirit, we want to emphasize that of these three, the ministration to the spirit man is more important, because when the spirit man is ministered to from God’s word; it enables the soul and body to function right and thus prosper In Inspiration, various interesting and useful information will be featured as the Lord leads us to write. It is important to note that whatever subject matter featured in Inspiration is not given to replace, criticize or condemn any medical, financial or any other advice received from your professional personnel. The purpose of Inspiration is to provide a different avenue of perspectives to the information already received, or will be received from a professional in that subject matter in order to inspire you to try another method of approach to that situation if applicable. We encourage you to follow us quarterly on Inspiration and broaden your perspective on different issues as we bring them to you within the comforts of your home, office or even in the field. We are just a click away online. We pray that as you read this magazine, every part of your life will be impacted and you will never remain the same again in Jesus name. Amen Inspiration is part of the media outreach ministries of God’s Battle Axe Ministries, a 501c (3) Corporation. Visit us on www.Godsbattleaxe.com for information about our other ministries.

W Blessings! ELCOME TO 2014, A SEASON OF GREAT EXPLOITS AND GREAT FAITH. The year 2014 begins a season of great exploits for the body of Christ, but this will require from us great faith. So I encourage the body of Christ to become more bold than we have ever been before, more focused than we have ever been before, and more daring than we have ever been before. We have to literally take God at His word and step out in great faith to accomplish in the world, all that God has predestined for the church in this season. It is my prayer, that we that know the Lord shall be strong, and do exploits in Jesus name. Amen. SO GO FORTH AND DO EXPLOITS FOR GOD!!! Prophetess Choice Nwachuku Ph.D Executive Director/Editor in Chief BELOW ARE SOME PROPHECIES FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST. I t is raining on the just and the unjust I am the Lord that maketh it to rain on all saith the Lord. My wind is blowing saith the Lord, to blow My power My might on them that are Mine. The people will see you and say these are they that are blessed of the Lord. It is a new and fresh season for My people saith the Lord I take them into plenty for My purpose and might to demonstrate My power in them. It is a time of glory and plenty for them that are Mine saith the Lord I change many things in the lives of people. I put structures and purpose in place saith the Lord I come in My might and power to destroy the power of the enemy against My people. I block many things the devil has planned I remove distractions from your midst saith the Lord I bring you to a place of glory and might for My name sake It is well with those who seek Me and are mine Again, I say, it is a time of plenty and increase. Come into My fold, into My presence and enjoy the Lord your Father saith the Lord. Given in December 2013

A re you prepared to see Him? Are you prepared for the 2nd coming? Yeah saith the Lord, they are many who think that they are ready, and they are prepared but they are not, because they have played with their salvation, and they have played with what I have done on the cross of Calvary. Nay saith the Spirit of the Lord, examine your heart and see ye whether ye still be in the faith. Examine the heart and see if you be in faith. For many people have departed from the faith saith the Lord, and yet they think that they still are. For they have gone forth to do what they want, not what my Word says. What makes one mine? It is that, that stays in my Word, it is that that has made Me the Lord of their lives, it is that that says, “it is not my will but Your will be done God”, it is that has removed their agenda and has made it Mine. It is that one says the Spirit of God that says, “What is it Father that You want me to do? That is the

the Spirit of God that says, “What is it Father that You want me to do? That is the one that has taken My Word and has truly become My own. For many, many are called I say, and few are chosen. Many are called, but yes few are chosen. Why is that? saith God Is it because I discriminate? Is it because I don’t love all? Nay saith the Spirit of God. It is not because I discriminate, because I am not a respecter of persons, because I love all the same. But because the people’s minds have turned away from Me saith God. And so many have dressed themselves in My Word as it were and they deceive the people to say, “I am of the Lord, I belong to Him.” Nay says God, they are not. They are not Mine, neither do they belong to Me, neither do I know them. And so I summon again a warning unto My people, the body and I say, examine yourself, examine yourself, examine yourself, whether you be in the faith according to My Word. Examine! And they ask, “How do I examine myself?” Yea saith the Spirit of the Lord, for my Word is a mirror that you look at saith God, to examine yourself, whether you be in the faith. For when you take My Word, and you look at it, and you look at yourself in it, and if there is a place says the Spirit of God- and there is a place that does not line up with what you see in My Word- in Me, for I Am my Word, then you know that there is an adjustment that needs to be made. And yea saith God, for I am here by my Spirit to help in the adjustment that is to be made. For as many that will come to Me and as many as will say, “Father, I need You here, I need You in this thing, I need You in this place”, I will work with. But I do not force My will on anyone. For I have given you a choice saith the Lord. I speak to My people, the Church, I have given you a choice, the way you come to Me you will remain in Me. That you may remain in Me, for you have all that it takes to remain in Me. For I have empowered you. In you is My Spirit! The Spirit

of Grace that is able even to bring to pass anything that My will is. But many do not ask My will and many do not seek My face, but they assume and they go forth, and they do that which they think they know. Yea saith the Spirit of the Lord, if I am your Lord you God, submit to My will. If I am the Lord your God, ask what My will is. If I am the Lord your God, do it my way. If I am the Lord your God, then bow to Me in everything saith the Spirit of the Lord. For yea, you have given Me one side and yet there are many other sections that they have said, “Don’t touch this, don’t touch this, don’t touch this”. Nay saith the Spirit of Grace, nay saith the Spirit of Grace, nay saith the Spirit of Grace, turn it all over to Me, for I am the Lord your God and I want it all. I want it all! I want it all! I want you – ALL! All of you I demand saith the Spirit of the Lord. For when you give yourself totally to Me in all that you do saith the Lord God, then, you see, you see My grace and My favor, and even when things delay, look hard, you know that I am in it with you. And it is easy, and it is easy to take saith the Lord. I sound a warning again for I return, and I return soon and I ask the body, My people, “Are you ready to receive me? saith the Lord. Are you ready to receive Me? Are you ready to receive Me? Are you ready to receive Me? Saith the Spirit of the Lord.

Women’s Corner As the year 2013 slips away and we celebrate the year 2014, I believe we should spend some time reflecting on the relationship we had with God in the year 2013. What was the status of our relationship with Him? If Christ returns or calls us home today, are we prepared to meet him? This is a rhetorical question of course as only you can answer this honestly. The book of Psalm 15 asks who can stay in the presence of our God. And the answer says He who has truth in his heart. This psalm helps us with our self-evaluation of our relationship with Him. Do we really have truth (God) in our hearts? The year 2013 no doubt was an interesting year for some and difficult for others. However we must give thanks to God for all he did in 2013. Some of us might ask “why should I give thanks, after all I did not achieve anything”. But you must give thanks because you have life and hope. The bible tells us to give thanks in everything, and not to be anxious about anything. It tells us even how to handle situations that may not have happened as we wanted. It says to pray with thanksgiving in making a request to God (Philippians 4:6). So whatever it is that you thought ought to have manifested in 2013 that did not, is not a loss. You still have many years ahead of you. But take that matter to God in the proper way (prayer and

thanksgiving) and believe that it is done. God will handle it for you. In this year 2014, my prayer is that it will be a better year for us and God will show Himself strong to us in Jesus name Amen. However we must learn to trust God with all our heart and lean not on our own understanding. In all our ways we must acknowledge Him and He will direct our path (Proverbs 3:5). God will keep us safe from all storms of life. He will be your shelter in the year 2014 from the storm. It is important to make God our refuge and hiding place. When the storm strikes, we will not be moved because we are an everlasting foundation when the wind blows (Proverbs 10:25). In other words, we cannot be destroyed. God will take charge. You may not be able to predict life’s storm or prevent them but sometimes you can prepare for them. The name of the Lord is a strong tower and when the righteous run in they are safe (Proverbs 18:10). We have to know in whom our protection is founded. If you do not have God, you become your own God (and cannot protect yourself) but if you have God you can say “my God is a safe place to hide”. He is ready to help when we need him. You have to read the word daily so that you can have a rich deposit of scriptures within you. Colossian 3:16 says to let the word of God dwell in us richly. If the word dwells in you, you can make a withdrawal when you need it. God is an ever present help Psalm 46:1. He is al- Anita Erhabor ways there and not only in trouble, but in good and at all times. In this year 2014, it behooves us to take our relationship with Him to another level, to another dimension. Allow your hearts to be filled with truth. The truth of who He is. I guarantee you based on God’s word that if you allow Christ to richly dwell in you, you will have a deeper revelation of God and success will always be yours in Jesus name. Let this be your goal, starting this year 2014; allow God to own you completely and leave no room for the enemy in Jesus name, amen. Blessings Anita Erhabor is a Nurse Practitioner.

MARR THE CONCEPTION (IDEA) OF MARRIAGE (III) Geor that Proposition 8 did not affect those rights except for the designation of the term marriage, reserved for only opposite-sex couples. The court opinion is taken from the Syllabus, prepared by the Reporter of Decisions, United States Supreme Court. Chief Justice Roberts, in regards to standing, says that its essence is to “prevent the judicial process from being used to usurp the powers of the political branches.” He continued that when the District court decided Proposition 8 to be unconstitutional and barred the named defendants from enforcement, the respondents ceased to have injury, so no further redress was necessary. The Petitioners no longer have a “personal stake” in seeing Propo- I n the last publication (I suggest that you read it again), we ended with the statement sition 8 enforced, and has no reason court need determine is that the state seeking to invoke the jurisdiction of t dying that harm.” Though the state agents to present it in federal court, th

RIAGE CORNER In view of these reasons Chief justice Roberts leading the majority in a 5-4 decision ruled that the Petitioners have no standing, vacating the decisions of the lower court that entertained the case, thus clearing the way for same-sex marriage to continue in the state of California. It is important to note that counter-arguments have been presented by the Supreme Court dissenting minority in this case where Justice Kennedy led the minority arguing that the California Supreme Court certifying the Petitioners to represent state interest is sufficient standing and that the aim of the initiative process was to bypass the state officials a and thus rge Nwachuku MBA nable interest to invoke the state’s interest. He added: “All a federal e has suffered harm sufficient to confer standing, and that the party the Court is authorized by the state to represent its interest in reme- “establishing lawmaking e being a “corporate body” which acts via its agents, designates it process,” giving the people power to adept proposition or he Proposition 8 petitioners have no standing as agents, he inferred.

amendments government officers reject. He insists that its Supreme Court precedents do not require “a formal agency relationship.” To that end, the Petitions have standing, for hit is not contingent on office holding. The majority opinion stated that the Petitioners lacked standing, while the dissenting justices found standing. The issue here is what now happens to the majority of Californians who have chosen to live according to that doctrine (Truth) that it only takes a male to mate with a female, for so has been biblical principles from the beginning, which invariably prescribes that marriage must be between man and wife in holy matrimony. This is not about religion; this is about the principle derived from an ordered universe that informs man how to live an ordered life. The ordered Universe is entrenched in truth to be perfectly functional, otherwise will lack existence. Then a perfectly functional Universe entrenched in Truth informs us that only one who is perfect, and the ultimate Truth, can generate it. Such argument has its own implication. It suggests that if one chooses to live without this doctrine (Truth), the person will also be free to mate as he pleases, which allows him to marry whomever or whatever he chooses, not in accordance to Truth or Universal laws, neither in accordance to how man should live nor in accordance with the dictates of the one who is perfect or the Ultimate Truth. The conse- quence of going against the knowledge of the Good which is self-evidential Truth, and which is demonstrated physically, as well as naturally in the Universe, is tremendous. It is self- evident that man is created different from a woman, and that which is seen tells of that which is unseen. “For the invisible things of Him from creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they, are without excuse (Romans 1:20). It is obvious that the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold truth in unrighteousness” (v. 18).

The opinion handed down by the Supreme Court and the dissenting opinions are all intellectually sound arguments. The Court tries its best to interpret the law in the books, and truly does not want to legislate or usurp the powers of other arms of government, though it had before made decisions that paved the way for the other arms of government, such as Brown v. Board of Education, which stopped separate schools for blacks and whites to mention but a few. The issue here is what constitutes a good law? For we see in Brown v. Board of Education, the opinion of the court, was of truth, and it changed America, for blacks and whites are one people of God, of one human race though of differentiated colors from their maker, God, who loves variety. The court rejected the popular opinion of men, customs, and restrictions of regulations of state, to find that higher Truth, that all men, created equal, need to be schooled together. For there to be one people of the United States, they must learn to be one, both in learning and in socializing together. In ask whether the decision of the Supreme Court to strike down DOMA as well as California law that defines marriage to be between man and wife, while reinstating samesex marriage a good law? For we know a good law must be reasonable, in accordance with the direction of the laws of the universe, and must be in accordance with Ultimate Truth, the one who created all things and set His laws in place. For the law made by man must reflect the Law God put in place which reflects who He is, Good. Because God is good, everything that He sets in place from creation is good. God created man and woman and with that creation set them apart to be different in many ways but yet same in some aspects. It is “no brainer” that one aspect in which they are physiologically and biologically different was done by our marker in other to serve a very specific purpose. To turn away from such purposeful creation at any point will not be wise; and I pray that in all we get, we will have wisdom. view of Brown v.
