Num 4:17-20

And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron saying, Cut ye not off the tribe of the families of the Kohathites from among the Levites: But thus do unto them, that they may live, and not die, when they approach unto the most holy things: Aaron and his sons shall go in, and appoint them every one to his service and to his burden:

But the Kohathites must not go into look at the holy things, even for a moment, or they will die. (NIV)

These men were charged with carrying holy things; however, they were not permitted to see, to behold the contents therein. They were Levites- priests, appointed by God to work in the holy place. Yet, something in their foundation disqualified them from beholding the holy things, at the risk of death.

Like the men in this scripture, many Christians own big bibles, but are strangers to the revelation and power therein.

There are pastors who do not see mysteries in the Word. There are families who have been in church all their lives, but do not see the power, blessings, prosperity and abundance in the Word.

It is a sad thing to be in the place of power and see power therein; to work in the house of God, but not be able to see the God of the house.

The command concerning this family was not given by man; it came directly from God.

Has God spoken in anger against your family? Is there a spiritual restriction placed over your household that is limiting your access to seeing, understanding and receiving the fullness of all that Christ paid for?

Do not despair.


Your disqualification has expired.


I Chr 9:22, 28-32

All these which were chosen to be porters in the gates were two hundred and twelve. These were reckoned by their genealogy in their villages, whom David and Samuel the seer did ordain in their set office.

And certain of them had the charge of the ministering vessels, that they should bring them in and out by tale. Some of them also were appointed to oversee the vessels, and all the instruments of the sanctuary, and the fine flour, and the wine, and the oil, and the frankincense, and the spices. And some of the sons of the priests made the ointment of the spices. And Mattithiah, one of the Levites, who was the firstborn of Shallum the Korahite, had the set office over the things that were made in the pans. And other of their brethren, of the sons of the Kohathites, were over the shewbread, to prepare it every sabbath.

It gladdens my heart to see men who understand God as their Father, and understand their divine office.

David and Samuel ordained certain men to various offices. Of these men, some were Kohathites. They were actually given charge over the kitchen, including the making of the showbread-the sacred bread that was presented before God-every Sabbath.

In the days of Moses, the showbread was made by Aaron and his sons, and covered up before the Kohathites could carry it. Now, they were in charge of making the same bread they had been forbidden to see, at the risk of death!

How does a man whose household has been forbidden from seeing blessings, prosperity and power, become a maker of the same things? How does one experience such a magnificent turnaround in the story of one’s life?

These men were connected to David. They let him know that their fathers had worked at the altar but did not see the mystery of the altar; and expressed their desire to see what their fathers could not see and do what their fathers could not do.

Because they were connected to David, they had their disqualification overturned.

Their appointment was not arbitrary.

David was not one to appoint men he had not trained. So, before they were appointed, they were trained to do what their parents could not do.

If you also desire to see, to hear and to do, what your parents were forbidden from seeing, hearing and doing, you must be connected to the right man, and submit to relevant training.

I Cor 10:17-18

For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.

David disqualified the disqualification. However, he did not merely say it. He said it with the mind of God.

He understood a divine principle.

We are all partakers of one bread. Race, tribe or language is inconsequential in Christ. As many as we are, in Him, we are called to partake of one bread. Wherever you go, your knowledge of the Word will make you known.

Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar?

Having established that we are all called to eat one bread, we are given a reference.

In Israel, those who eat of the sacrifice must partake of the altar.

The portion-the payment- of the Levites came from the altar. Yet, they were forbidden from seeing holy things of the same altar.

Consider this: why should you eat the Word of God from the altar, and not partake of the mysteries of the altar?

It is not enough to eat from the altar; you must also partake of the covenant and power that produces the Word on the altar.

David disqualified the disqualification of the Kohathites because he understood one thing; if God had appointed them to eat of the altar, then, their days of disqualification have expired.

God has brought you into this ministry so that you can enjoy your rest.

Therefore, if there is any judgement of disqualification still keeping you from partaking of the power that produces the Word at the altar, it is time to destroy its power and works; because your disqualification has been disqualified.


In the name of Jesus,

  • My time has finally come to reverse ancestral judgement, and change the ancestral order.
  • My life, receive sufficient power to damage and destroy every ancestral judgement that has been limiting my life.
  • My life, receive fire, to receive all that God has apportioned me in The Refiner’s Place Ministries.
  • I receive the divine ordination to do what my parents could not do; to go what they could not go; to say what they could not say; to prepare what they could not see.
  • My life; you have been ordained today, to do what my parents could not do; to go what they could not go; to say what they could not say; to attain the heights my parents could not attain; to prepare what they could not see.
  • Any ancestral judgement, over my household, that has placed a limit over my life and assignment; I destroy you by fire.
  • Any judgement from any kingdom, over my household, that has placed a limit over my life and assignment; I destroy you by fire.





REFERENCES: ISAIAH 1:16-19, ISAIAH 41: 17-24

In the first part of this teaching, we learnt that every curse and spell has an expiration date, just as it has a manufacturing (commencement) date. We also learnt the importance of being connected to a faithful man of God in enforcing the expiration.

Isa 1: 16- 19

Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

Here is a call to salvation and conversion: wash and cleanse yourself of sin; put away evil deeds, and cease to do them anymore.

Learn to do well

This is God’s desire for you; that you do well. However, it will not happen automatically; you need to be instructed. Therefore, when you come to Christ, you must be ready to learn. Being a Christian is more than just going to church and observing activities. You come to the House of God to learn to do well: to succeed, prosper, excel, to advance in every area of your life. judgment

So, as a Christian, you have learnt to do well. While you excel, the enemy may rise at any time to challenge your success and bring his own evil judgement against you. You therefore need judgement to defend and sustain whatever you have begun to do well. So, seek judgement.

...relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

The sum of the gospel has been preached. Be saved. Mature in the faith: learn to do well and seek judgement. Also show mercy and defend the cause of the less privileged.

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD

This call is to the man who has been saved, taught to do well and to execute judgement. This is the man God can reason with.

A man who does not live according to the whole gospel will find that, when God speaks, His words are above his (the man’s) level of understanding. He will not understand what He is saying.

...though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

When you get to the place where you can reason with God, He will bring you to His level. There, whatever your past may have looked like, He will transform you so much, that it will be impossible for anyone to believe that you ever went through such an experience.

If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

God is saying, ‘if you are willing to be instructed, to seek judgement, and obey all that you are taught; if you are willing to reason with Me and obey; then you will eat the good of the land.’

Brethren, there is good in the land you are in; there is good inside of you. If you are willing and obedient, nothing can stop you from enjoying the rich goodness that God has blessed your land with.

Remember, your sins, your past, your background may have been as bloody and stained as they come; they become irrelevant, when you are willing and obedient to reason with Him.

Do not reason with your past; do not reason with evil words or works. Reason with God.


Isa 41: 17-24

When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.

Many Christians come to God desiring just enough water to drink. Yet, our super abundant God is saying, ‘I desire to give you rivers.’

However, He can only hear, and give rivers to, those who talk to Him.

Many are too busy talking to man about their situations that they fail to seek God. When a Christian makes man his god, he can only get water; he will never get rivers...

God can only hear you when you talk to Him.

I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys

God will open rivers in you. This means that there are already rivers in you- rivers of power, fire, greatness, abundance- in you. When you come and reason with Him, He will activate in you, the original vision behind your creation. In doing so, the latent rivers He put in you will flow.

...I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.

You are thirsty and in dire need of water. You seek man for help, but you are disappointed. This is a divine setup.

God has rivers in mind for you. Therefore, He stops men from helping you because they can only give you water.

If they help you, you will go on with that, thinking you have made it, when in truth, your original destiny is much, much more greater than what you have been given.

Why not talk to God instead, that He may open up the rivers of ideas, wisdom, boldness, initiative and power in you?

When you talk to Him, your life, which had been called a desert- useless, unprofitable, foolish, unfruitful- will become a pool of waters.

I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together

There is a divine purpose for the waters. God wants to plant.

Many have vision and ideas but lack the water to sustain and grow them.

Consider God’s wisdom: first, He opens the rivers; then He plants. This is so that the seeds will not die.

If you find that you come from a background that is teeming with evil oppositions, you are like a person farming in the northern part of this country. While his counterparts in the south can plant and go to sleep, he needs to provide irrigation for his crops.

In the same way, your tough background demands that you work harder, fight harder, dig deeper, in order to get your vision, ideas, talents, abilities to grow. You will do well to not compare yourself with others, but to get to work.

God will not plant visions of your great destiny in you, until He sees the rivers. However, when the rivers of mysteries and revelations are opened in you, He will give you ideas. These, sustained by the rivers, will never die. You can never go down in life.

A lukewarm Christian does himself a great disservice because he will suffer the frustration of seeing his ideas die in his hands.

However, the man in whom the rivers flow will find that the smallest idea will flourish in his hands.

That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.

Until members of your household can see your life producing results- testimonies and experiences- that are uncommon to that family, you are yet to manifest as a must become a mystery before their eyes.

This is why you must be willing and obedient, to be instructed in doing well and to know judgement. This is why you must come and reason with Him, so that He will transform your life.

When you come to Him, you will eat the good of the land because He will open up rivers in you, and plant seeds of greatness in you. Your once desolate life will become a land of fatness and trans-generational blessings.

When He does these in you, get ready, because ‘they’- the evil personalities in your household- will see it.

They will see the transformation, and they will know that it is uncommon.

They will also consider: they will look into their mirrors to enquire about the source of these uncommon blessings in your life.

Their investigations will lead them to understand, together, that all you have been blessed with came by the hand of the LORD.

This is my prayer for you: men will consider your life and understand that your blessings and testimonies are a product of the hand of God.

Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob. Let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come. Shew the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods: yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together. Behold, ye are of nothing, and your work of nought: an abomination is he that chooseth you.

[You idols made by men’s hands, prove your divinity!] Produce your cause [set forth your case], says the Lord. Bring forth your strong proofs, says the King of Jacob. (AMP)

Whenever God begins to do something new in your household, beware. Idols, ancestral powers and personalities will not just fold their arms; they will speak!

God is revealing to you that they will produce reasons against you; strong reasons why you are not permitted to rise and why you deserve to die.

It is your responsibility to tell them that their reasons against your greatness are not reasonable enough to stop you, because they have expired.

Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen

These personalities will go into your past and seek to prove to you that; by virtue of what transpired then, you are not permitted to rise, at the threat of death.

Be ready to refuse their offer of failure, falling and death; because their reasons have expired.



In the name of Jesus,

  • Holy Ghost, open Your rivers in me!
  • You hands of the wicked over my life; your time has expired. Break and scatter now.
  • You ancestral hands over the works of my hands; your time has expired. Break and scatter now.
  • You ancestral powers that have vowed to do something against my life; you are a liar. Your time has expired. I bury you by fire.
  • Whatever the wicked has declared against my life, waiting for an appointed time; I destroy you by fire.
  • Any power bringing evil accusations against my life; I damage you by fire.
  • Evil accusation brought forth against my life; I damage and destroy you by fire.
  • Any power working tirelessly to renew or extend what has expired in my life; I destroy you by fire.





REFERENCES: EZEKIEL 30: 6, JUDGES 4: 1-24, JUDGES 15:24- 31

We look into something in order to get better things from it; better things to work with; better things that enhance one’s life.

Therefore, we explore the Word- we look into it- to get deeper and better things: revelation, wisdom, strength, glory…in order to stand out in life.

The bible calls the Kingdom a treasure. Just as treasures are not found on the surface, the great substance of the Word is only available to the man who is willing to go beyond opening the Book. There are so many things buried in the Word.

The man who desires to change his world; to transform his environment, must be ready to look into the Word and dig out the deep mysteries from its belly.

A backup is an extra support. Everyone in the kingdom of Christ needs the extra strength and power that a divine backup provides.

Eze 30: 6

Thus saith the LORD; They also that uphold Egypt shall fall; and the pride of her power shall come down: from the tower of Syene shall they fall in it by the sword, saith the Lord GOD.

God is revealing that the enemy of His people had a spiritual support system.

You must understand that any evil altar roaring against you has personalities supporting it. They are the powers that invoke the altar against you.

God is saying ‘I will deal with the backup and the altar will fall’. This is because the power on the altar will continue as long as the backup remains. However, once the backup is brought down, the altar will come down too.

As we proceed, note the following:

  • Every spiritual engagement demands a spiritual backup.
  • Understand your backup as your eye.
  • Your backup is extra force that determines your speed in the battle of life.
  • Your backup deserves your best.

Judg 4: 1-24

And the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the LORD, when Ehud was dead. And the LORD sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan, that reigned in Hazor; the captain of whose host was Sisera, which dwelt in Harosheth of the Gentiles. And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD: for he had nine hundred chariots of iron; and twenty years he mightily oppressed the children of Israel.

The genesis of this story was that God sold Israel into the hands of the enemy because of their sins. This means that they were delivered into the enemy’s hands.

Now, this enemy oppressed them mightily for 20 years. Armed with chariots of iron, Sisera, the captain of the Canaanite army made their lives hell. Afterall, they had been sold out to him.

And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time. And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment.

Like Deborah, this is my time...and like Israel, you have also come for the judgement of God.

And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of Kedeshnaphtali, and said unto him, Hath not the LORD God of Israel commanded, saying, Go and draw toward mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of Zebulun? And I will draw unto thee to the river Kishon Sisera, the captain of Jabin's army, with his chariots and his multitude; and I will deliver him into thine hand.

Deborah sent for Barak and charged him to go into battle, declaring God’s words, that ‘I will deliver the captain of Jabin’s army and his multitude into your hands’.

And Barak said unto her, If thou wilt go with me, then I will go: but if thou wilt not go with me, then I will not go.

Barak understood that this was more than a battle between two captains. He could see that Sisera had a spiritual backup, and to confront him without a backup of his own was to court certain defeat.

Barak understood that he needed extra force. Therefore, he wisely insisted that Deborah go with him into battle.

Brethren, any battle without spiritual backup will cause a man to back down from the battle, and back out of destiny.

And she said, I will surely go with thee: notwithstanding the journey that thou takest shall not be for thine honour; for the LORD shall sell Sisera into the hand of a woman. And Deborah arose, and went with Barak to Kedesh.

Oppression came upon Israel because God had sold them to their oppressor. When the time came for the oppression to end, God flipped the script, and sold the seller back to the buyer.

Beloved, for how many years has the devil been oppressing your household? As you explore the Word, understand that that happened because you were all sold out. Now, for the evil to end, the power to which you were sold out must now be sold out to you...

And the LORD discomfited Sisera, and all his chariots, and all his host, with the edge of the sword before Barak; so that Sisera lighted down off his chariot, and fled away on his feet. But Barak pursued after the chariots, and after the host, unto Harosheth of the Gentiles: and all the host of Sisera fell upon the edge of the sword; and there was not a man left.

God will not do anything until there is a man or woman that is ready to fight. The Word says that God has sold the enemy and oppressor of your life into your hands, but you have got to rise and fight.

Whatever fight is before you, you will do wisely to follow Barak’s example. Understand that your intellectual ability and business acumen will not do. You must have spiritual backup.

Howbeit Sisera fled away on his feet to the tent of Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite: for there was peace between Jabin the king of Hazor and the house of Heber the Kenite. And Jael went out to meet Sisera, and said unto him, Turn in, my lord, turn in to me; fear not. And when he had turned in unto her into the tent, she covered him with a mantle. And he said unto her, Give me, I pray thee, a little water to drink; for I am thirsty. And she opened a bottle of milk, and gave him drink, and covered him. Again he said unto her, Stand in the door of the tent, and it shall be, when any man doth come and enquire of thee, and say, Is there any man here? that thou shalt say, No.

This woman saw the captain of an army that was on the run, and boldly invited her into her home. She quenched his thirst with milk, and gained his trust. He even set her as watch guard over her own home!

Then Jael Heber's wife took a nail of the tent, and took an hammer in her hand, and went softly unto him, and smote the nail into his temples, and fastened it into the ground: for he was fast asleep and weary. So he died.

Who put the nail and the hammer there?

This woman did not know Sisera was coming her way, so she had not prepared any instrument of death. Yet, by divine arrangement, there was in her tent, within her reach, the nail and the hammer...

Remember that God had already sold Sisera out to a woman. Although, her name was not given, although she was not aware of the prophecy, something came on her and directed her to the instruments of death.

Ordinarily, no woman could have done this, but because the Word had gone forth, she was led to do the extraordinary.

Other women may sleep; others may keep waiting for their husbands to do the work; but woman that is Jael will reach for the nail and hammer, and do the needful.

Softly, she walked up to a man who was an experienced warrior- a captain of a great army for at least 20 years- and hit the nail into his  temples until it passed through his head and hit the ground.

So, he died.

So, shall your enemies die.

And, behold, as Barak pursued Sisera, Jael came out to meet him, and said unto him, Come, and I will shew thee the man whom thou seekest. And when he came into her tent, behold, Sisera lay dead, and the nail was in his temples. So God subdued on that day Jabin the king of Canaan before the children of Israel. And the hand of the children of Israel prospered, and prevailed against Jabin the king of Canaan, until they had destroyed Jabin king of Canaan.

Judg 15:24- 31

Blessed above women shall Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite be, blessed shall she be above women in the tent. He asked water, and she gave him milk; she brought forth butter in a lordly dish. She put her hand to the nail, and her right hand to the workmen's hammer; and with the hammer she smote Sisera, she smote off his head, when she had pierced and stricken through his temples.

When you kill the enemy that the LORD has delivered into the hands of your household, you shall be called blessed. Those who see that woman will see God’s blessings upon her, because she did what others could not do.

She took up the nail and the workmen’s hammer. She took up a task that should have been done by a man, and she did it well.

At her feet he bowed, he fell, he lay down: at her feet he bowed, he fell: where he bowed, there he fell down dead.

Here, we are given the true picture of Sisera’s sleep. It was a divine set up against his life. He did not sleep; he bowed and fell at her feet. There, where he fell, he died.

The mother of Sisera looked out at a window, and cried through the lattice, Why is his chariot so long in coming? why tarry the wheels of his chariots? Her wise ladies answered her, yea, she returned answer to herself,

As Deborah was to Barak, so was Sisera’s mother to her son- his spiritual backup.

This woman looked through a window- her diabolic looking glass-and consulted to know why there was a delay. She could sense in the realm of the spirit that things had not gone according to her expectations. In 20 years, things had gone according to her plan. However, she knew that something was different this time.

Are they not finding and dividing the spoils: a girl or two for each man, colourful garments as plunder for Sisera, colourful garments embroidered, highly embroidered garments for my neck- all this as plunder?(NIV)

Sisera’s mother, right in her home, had determined how the spoils of war would be divided. ‘What is taking him so long to destroy and plunder the land of Israel?’ she inquired. ‘Have they not found and begun to divide the spoils as I determined that they be shared- two girls for a man, beautiful wears for her son, and beautiful and embroidered wears, the best of all, for me?’

As the backup, as the spiritual force behind the outcome of the battle, it was understood that she deserved the best.

So let all thine enemies perish, O LORD: but let them that love him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might. And the land had rest forty years.

No one can confront the sun when it is at its brightest.

For 20 years, this woman was the support of Sisera. However, Deborah, looked into the strength of Sisera and discovered it was his mother.

Therefore, by the power of God, the mother and her wise ladies fell. And because they had fallen, Sisera also bowed, fell and died.

So shall every backup of evil against you meet their end.

They shall bow, fall and die.

If you desire to win in life- to succeed without manipulation- at a speed that is beyond human comprehension, you need to acknowledge, submit to, and honour your divine backup with the best.


In the name of Jesus,

  • Father, in whatever way I have violated this principle, have mercy on me. Help me to the right thing.
  • Father, today, I receive the power to give the best to my divine backup.
  • Raw fire of God, possess me this morning.
  • Any agent of darkness standing as a backup to the wicked against my assignment; your end has come. I command you to bow, fall and die by fire.
  • You candidate of the devil, that has been a backup of the wicked against my life; I bring you down. I slay you by fire.
  • Any wicked personality sustaining an attack against my life and destiny; I slay you by fire.
  • You evil thing, that has been ruling and oppressing in my household; I slay you by fire.
